Collector Zone _ Suggestion Box _ What can your content and graphics team do for you

Posted by: broscards May 1 2009, 08:26 PM

Hey TCC - I was just brought on board with the Content and Graphics team, along with a few other familiar faces -

Our area of "expertise" if you want to call it that is:

1. Write, review and edit new hobby articles, product reviews and more.

2. Publish press releases received directly from numerous hobby sources.

3. Maintain various content sections throughout the entire TCC site, especially the Resources section (see left-side menu).

4. Assist in the preparation of various promotional materials including newsletters, flyers, videos, and print ads.

5. Maintain a positive, family-friendly tone and environment throughout the Collector Zone.


Being a member of this team is a great honor, and one I dont take lightly, so..

Lets see what bright ideas you guys have for us to work on! We already have some very exciting projects in the works that Im sure will enhance the whole site.. but Im sure you all have some thoughts on the back of your mind! Not everything will get implemented of course, but I want to bring some fresh ideas to the group and what better source than the community we serve?

So TCC - what can the Content and Graphics team do for you?

Glad to see you taking the initiative, I see us all doing big things with TCC.

I'd like to see an update to the overall front page, especially the hobby news and articles section, as well as the large text boxes in the middle column of the page.

They are quite updated and could use an update.

Thanks Josh!

Ok, but seriously. One thing I'd like to see updated is the http://www.tradingcardcentral.com/card_releases.php. I can probably thing of some more things, but one step at a time.

Bust out the bull whip!!

Actually, the card release page is under review right now! Im not sure what the final plan for it is just yet, but maybe we can update it to say 2006 now? laugh.gif

Thanks, were on that one too!

[twocents]I don't mean any disrespect here, but maybe it would have been a better idea to finish the projects you're currently working on before asking for more. wink.gif I mean, there's no real hurry to finish it all by tomorrow is there? tongue.gif I'd like to see TCC grow just as much as the next guy, but it should probably be done one step at a time.[/twocents]

My dad always told me to make hay while the sun shines -

We have a more than capable team assembled that are all very eager to dig their heels in and get to work. Its very addictive smile.gif

But Im sharing all these suggestions with the team - as points to ponder, unless we are already pondering them -

There is no set deadline to accomplish any of the ideas presented - I just want to have a list to keep track of and I want the community to have a say in what they want -

The suggestion box gets some good activity, but with this thread my hope it to concentrate ideas for the CG team so I can pass them along to the guys smile.gif

Of course not all ideas will be implemented, but its nice to hear them and maybe expand them somehow!

Posted by: mjda May 1 2009, 09:41 PM

Well I'm eager to see the changes you will make. I assume we'll be updated in the "News and Announcements" forum on each change that is made?

Posted by: broscards May 1 2009, 09:43 PM

Absolutely!

i would say to clean up the left hand area of the screen, much of it is outdated

Posted by: broscards May 4 2009, 06:28 AM

Thanks Joe, are you referring to the links at the top left?

I know a lot of these are already being addressed - but it would add a great deal to the quality of the site aside from the forums themselves!

Posted by: broscards May 4 2009, 10:29 AM

I agree! Thanks.

When can we expect to see some movement on some of these ideas? Or is it possible that we can already and just aren't looking in the right places?

Posted by: broscards Jun 23 2009, 12:38 PM

Most of those links are better or are getting better... We only have a few people who have the "power" to edit those, so Its kinda slow going for now

Posted by: Ilovetheheat Jun 25 2009, 12:00 PM

Talk with Bob about TCC Auctions....... There was something in the works a while back.
Huge Potential there! Everybody is looking for alternatives....

Take Care and Good Luck.

Bob is currently working on getting some of these things going. Especially towards updating the links to the left side of that page. There's a lot of behind the scenes things going on. Hopefully soon the C&G team will be able to get things updated around here.

I'm currently trying to make this happen smile.gif

Posted by: mjda Jan 4 2010, 01:21 AM

We have already started working on some of the pages listed in the links to the left. If there is anything, specifically, that you would like to see us do please let someone on the team (orange names) know!

The Card Calendar needs to be updated. It hasn't been since February of last year. smile.gif

See? I'm not the only one to point it out on the boards! biggrin.gif

Any chance TCC will be getting a new look any time soon? Not that anything is wrong with the current layout, just wondering if we could try something different, mayhaps?

Actually, with AdBlock Plus enabled on my browser (Firefox), the portion between the TCC logo and Roberto Clemente is off. For me, it's slightly broken. tongue.gif
