Full Detail, Shareable Collection List?

jpmeierjpmeier Manitoba, CanadaMember Posts: 5

I know Brickset allows you to keep a list of your collection, and that you can share that list via the unique link. But this list does not show the notes or quantity of particular sets you have, so it doesn't show the true nature of your collection. I have notes to say whether the sets are MIB, MISB, x2 MISB and so on.

Is there something I'm missing on Brickset for that, or are there other more inclusive/ advanced methods to include these kinds of details, whether on here or elsewhere? I want to share my collection in it's truest form.

Thanks, Joshua

    Forgive me, buy why?

    Personally, I wouldn't want everybody knowing just how many MISB #41999s I have stashed away.

    When sharing my collection, I want others to be able to see how many of any set I have and whether those sets are mint or not. It helps to provide context to the collection in its entirety. Just saying I have a set isn't much, but if I have three all in MISB condition, then that's much more representative of my collection.

    Would using the additional flags check boxes do what you want? I use one of them to keep track of which sets are sealed.

    Brickset does not show others flags but your own; and if you are not logged in, it does not show any flags at all.

    Exactly, I don't just want it for me to see. What's the point of being able to share your collection when the list is not actually representative of your collection?

    I'm thinking I might have to create a list through Excel and share from OneDrive. It's too bad Brickset isn't more comprehensive for stuff like this, which seems kind of counter-intuitive actually.

    There hasn't been a need for sharing in such depth, but I can see it would be a useful option.

    Let me add it to my to-do list...

    Thanks Huw, sorry for the fuss. I just like to be able to show-off/ display my collection in its fullest, which for me, includes all the extra details and notes. It gives me a better appreciation for the collection/ collector and helps to provide context where it may be required, like for more obscure sets or promotional sets, etc.

    I'm a details-oriented guy too, which is sometimes a blessing and a curse, haha.

    I can see things like this being frequent 'one-off' situations (some people want a 'MISB' flag, others want an 'incomplete set' flag, etc). Perhaps a Tag-like system similar to what is implemented in many cloud hosting services such as AWS may be the answer. It should maximize usability while still being searchable if that is needed. The most frequent tags could then before formalized (if warranted) into official columns for more in-depth site usage, or made more detailed.

    Maybe so, but on the flip side, if options like these existed, more people might be inclined to use them. Sometimes you don't know until you provide people the options.
