New: See Collectors' Inventory Notes on Item List

As collectors looking to exchange, trade or just look around, browsing collections of other fellow collectors- you need to look at the exact details of the items, look at the collection itself. Now this has been made easier with the help of Personal Inventory Notes. You can now see the notes made by collectors when browsing their lists.

Others Inventory

The new information that appears is the public notes made by the collector of the quantity, condition and any additional free text notes they have added about the item in their collection. Simply go to a collectors page, look at their list and you will notice that new information now appears along the item details, marked in a separated colored box.

Previously, public inventory notes where only available on the single item pages of the catalog, together with all collectors that have this particular item. Now you can also see it on collectors' individual list.

Come take a look, browse some collections, and let us know what you think :)

コレクトしてコネクトする時、コルネクとするのさ

Colnect Collectors Community promotional video with Japanese audio.



牛(cow):あー、またやっちまったよ。
かえる(frog):どうしんだい?

牛:またこのコインだよ。
かえる:いいコインじゃないか。

牛:そうだけど、もう僕のコレクションにあるやつなんだよ。
かえる:あら?

牛:それにもうこの持ってるコインのために他のいいやつをあげちゃったんだよ。
かえる:なんでさ?

牛:だってさぁ、もう持ってるってことを忘れちゃってたんだよ。親切なコレクターさんが交換リストを送ってきてくれてさ。それで自分のカタログを調べてたんだけど、あんまり長いから間違えちゃったんだよ。
かえる:ああ、それは君がコルネクトをやってないからだね。

牛:コレクトしてるよ!コイン収集さ。
かえる:コレクトはしてても、コルネクトしてないってことさ。

牛:コルネクトって何?
かえる:僕のテレフォンカードコレクションの管理のために使ってるいいウェブサイトだよ。

牛:そういえばかなりたくさん持ってるよね。
かえる:そうそう。5312個あるんだよ。

牛:全部数えてるの?
かえる:そうじゃないさ。世界一大きなテレフォンカードカタログがそのサイトにあってね、僕は自分の持ってるカードをそこでマークしてるのさ。それから僕が欲しいと思ってるカードや交換してもいいカードもマークしてある。それでコルネクとサイトは自動的に他の人のコレクションとマッチさせて、トレードしやすくしてくれてるのさ。

牛:いいね。いくらかかるの?
かえる:無料だよ。コインもあるし。カタログは参加者が作ってるんだ。


牛:じゃあ君がカタログを今作ってるのかい?
かえる:そうじゃなくてさ。ウィキペデアと同じ原理さ。

牛:へ?
かえる:僕が自主的にやってる。

牛:なんで?
かえる:このサイトが他の人は僕のことも助けてくれてるからね。

牛:君だけだろう?
かえる:すでにもう世界各国から100人以上のボランティアが参加してるんだよ。

牛:へー。この世界のみんなは英語ができるみたいだね。
かえる:コルネットのコレクターのほとんどは英語を使わないよ。35カ国語で利用可能だからね。

牛:コルネクとって言ったっけ?
かえる:そう。コレクトしてコネクトする時、コルネクとするのさ。

牛:誰とコネクトするの?
かえる:世界中とさ。

牛:気づいたんだけど。
かえる:何?

牛:僕らもコレクティブルなんだよね。
かえる:うん。そうだね。

牛:ってことは僕らもコルネクと上で取引されるってこと?
かえる:そうだけど、、、それって変な感じだな。

Collectors Joining Colnect on March - a New Record

March has shown record growth to Colnect's collectors base. Many collectors still use Colnect without registering and enjoy the free catalogs offered on the site. Over 60,000 people have visited Colnect on March. However, to manage their personal collection with Colnect, collectors have to register Colnect. This March, as Colnect passed the 10,000 members milestone, a record growth of 11% (1,033 new collectors) was achieved.

We extend our warm welcome to all new members of Colnect. Colnect is built by our members and the more collectors join, the better our catalogs will get.

Colnect Unveils Dynamic New Look to Improve Collecting Experience

Colnect is excited to launch a brand new layout that is both prettier and easier to use for collectors! One of the most important changes is a greater emphasis on displaying only the relevant category information for a particular collector, meaning that someone who only collects stamps can easily customize their top menu bar to display only pages important for stamp collectors (i.e.: clicking on a collectors' list will show only those who have stamps). This reorganization has become particularly warranted in recent months with the addition of several new, highly-specialized categories that appeal primarily to niche collectors. In addition, numerous smaller modifications have been made that will make navigating the site more efficient and intuitive, such as checkboxes that indicate when an update is in progress and automatic redirects to item list pages. For a complete list of changes, please see the new Face-lift page.



Creating the new version of Colnect entailed months of meticulous design, experimentation, and consultation with collectors. Although adjusting to the new layout may take some time and there will inevitably be some temporary glitches, we feel that the aforementioned advantages will make this project beneficial for the entire Colnect community in the long-term. Please send us any feedback you may have about these changes so that we can continue working to improve Colnect and make your collection experience more enjoyable.

Over 2 Million Monthly Page Views

As previously reported, Colnect's traffic keeps growing nicely and we've recently passed the mark of over 2 Million page views during the last 30 days. As new collectors join Colnect and discover how it benefits them, existing members use the site extensively to manage their personal collection, which explains the rise in seen page views. This increase in site use is much bigger than the increase in page views since many actions which formerly required the whole page to be refreshed are now easily performed with Ajax requests and are thus NOT counted as page views anymore.

Bottle Caps Catalog - Doubled in Size!



During the last few days, Colnect's bottle cap catalog has doubled its size. There are currently nearly 11,000 bottle caps listed. Many thanks go to Art Zhitnik who has contributed the information based on his own bottle cap collection. Art has created a bottle cap cataloging software, Caps Navigator, which allows bottle cap collectors to create their own database. Due to his organized contribution to Colnect, other collectors will be able to use the pictures and information to easily manage their personal collection on Colnect.

Since the information is of Art's own collection, editors on Colnect will now work on "merging" duplicate items. It's a very common task on Colnect's wiki-catalogs since it happens that some items are accidentally added more than once. When two items are "merged", the inventory information is kept. So, for example, if a collector marked either of the items on his wish list, the "merged" item will be on his wish list.

Collectors List Improvements

A long awaited fix to Colnect's collectors list has finally been implemented. As collectors on Colnect may collect different types of collectibles, it's important to see who collects what. The collectors list (see below) now shows it clearly.



In addition, an easy-to-use pop-up selection now allows to filter by collectors of a certain collectible, for example coin collectors or stamp collectors.
