TCC has over 24,000 members. Open Checklist has slightly over 2000. Where is everyone? Don't you get that not only does it help you keep track of your cards but it will also make trading easier? Register today...and get those cards entered. I'm tired of mulling through buckets(photo that is) of endless crap that I have no need for. You should be too. Register, enter, go and tell people everywhere.

I've already entered all my cards into a local database, so that I can export lists on demand. I have no interest in re-entering them elsewhere.

Great idea for those who don't have a tradelist tho wink.gif

The Checklist system is greatly outdated.
If an update was applied, I would be MUCH more inclined to use it.

Patience ?

First find the checklist you want to add cards to. Use the Keyword search or the Search / Browse option.

Click on My Set Checklist, then check the cards you are adding and the quantity.

Hit submit.

They'll be added to your inventory.

I feel your pain when it comes to already having the cards in a database and not wanting to enter them. Wouldn't it be great if someone wrote a script so already existing collections could be exported directly into OpenChecklist? I, too, already have my other cards in other databases. However, I think the automatch feature makes entering them, again, worth the effort.

Obviously, newer sets need to be added. That doesn't diminish the merits of this program. However, with such little interest in it thus far (or just lack of collectors knowing that it's available), what is the motivation for the leaders of this project to update with newer sets/players? If we get behind it and use it, perhaps the project coordinators will feel more motivated to spend their time working on this excellent resource. Not only is it useful on TCC....it is also useful across all the trading forums and would give us access to everyone's tradelists/wantlist without having to waste time jumping to 5 different sites.

The problem with that idea is that the data stored in another database or spreadsheet might not match up well with the structured data stored in the OpenChecklist database. One of the additional goals of OpenChecklist is to establish a universal format for storing checklists.

Have you registered for Open Checklist? It's a great way to keep track of the cards you have, have to trade, and want. It also has tools so you can compare your wants with other members inventory. I suggest trying it out.

No I've never heard of it is it on this site or another site?

Here are the fields used to store players in the database:

First Name
Last Name
Given Name
Nicknames
Birth Date
Sport or Subject

Feel free to provide this information for a player and we can then add that player. If you can provide a link to the source(s) used to determine the information, that would be ideal.

My wantlist isn't long enough for that to be a real problem laugh.gif

So far, not a single issue I'm looking for has turned up in a search...

I guess the real issue for me is, the simplicity of entering in my database with all its autolookups isn't matched at OC. If I set the cards in front of me, it takes about 3-5 seconds to make a new entry. When I do entry it's with the keyboard, not the mouse, so it seems cumbersome to me. That's just my preference I guess.

After spending some time there today, an additional issue is - it shows items in my inventory, but when I click to list them, nothing is there...is there an update process that must occur before my lists are updated?---found the reason for this...if I added a card from any set for the purpose of set building, that player is then added to an "Interest Flag" of some kind, even tho I was only interested in a single card. So when I remove the cards from my wantlist, they are not removed from other "Interest Flags" I have to go delete or modify my player name "interest" in them individually...

I did find that and used it in the tools, but it did not remove "my interest" from the player list - I had to go do that player name by player name. sad.gif


On that note tho, it is more useable than in the past, I have been able to update some wants and add inventory. smile.gif

Still needs a big update on names for Hockey, couldn't find any new names from 2003 forward..

What do you mean by "it did not remove my interest from the player list" ?


Simplest way to describe it:

I add a card to my inventory or wantlist. It is the only card from the set, and only card for that player in my whole inventory/tradelist.

Run the update my interest from inventory/tradelist in tools.

This creates "interest flags" for the card set, the player.

Time goes along...I trade the card out of my inventory.

So I remove the entry for the card, and run the update my interest tool.

The entry disappears from the set inventory/tradelist rollup.

However, the entry for the player is not removed. It appears in the player rollup with 0 0 0. So I have to then go in and manually "remove interest" for that player record, then run the update my interest tool. Where I would have thought once no more cards for the player existed in wantlist/inventory that a cascade removal from the player rollup would occur.

So I guess the best way to describe form a data standpoint is there is no, or not correctly functioning, cascading update for that data update situation.


Hope that helps to describe it. unsure.gif

(It's not a huge deal now that I know what to do to resolve it.)
