Full Version: Milestone: Collector Zone passes Topps Boards
Collector Zone > TCC Features > News and Announcements

The TCC Collector Zone reached another major milestone earlier this evening as we have now passed the Topps Message Boards in terms of total posts! To provide more context, it's important to note that the Topps Message Boards were started on 3/27/02 and the Collector Zone forums were officially launched on 4/4/05 - just over 3 years later!

Thanks to each and every one of you that have chosen to join the Collector Zone! Each of you help to make TCC an amazing site!

Thanks also to the men and women who volunteer their time to help as members of the TCC Team!


While this is certainly a major milestone, it's really just the beginning though! So, we'll take a brief moment to enjoy this milestone, but then we're going to jump right back in and continue to do what we can to make TradingCardCentral.com the leading site for trading card collectors! wink.gif

Expect even bigger and better things in 2007! cool.gif

As always, we're open to discussing and even linking to other sites. In the end, collectors simply have to choose where they wish to spend their time. If we're doing our best here, I'm confident that many will choose TCC. wink.gif

At some point, we have to start measuring ourselves against the "big guy". So, why not now?

9/6/06

Beckett
40,248 members
487,232 posts

TCC
6,337 members
245,072 posts

3/28/07

Beckett
48,836 members (plus 8,588)
1,738,711 posts (plus 1,251,479)

TCC
10,640 members (plus 4,303)
536,117 posts (plus 291,045)

In terms of members, they are at a little under 2x our pace! In terms of posts, they are at a little over 4.25x our pace.

I'll take that at this point in the site's history. The gap may be in years still, but we certainly don't need to use light to measure that gap. cool.gif

I just dont see the fatal attraction of members with beckett.. They gripe and complain about no ebay.. no buying or selling.. closely cropped mods..

and then you tell them about the freedoms we have and they simply retort.. but its not Beckett..

Well its darned if you do and darned if you dont!

Someday, some how, some where!

Plus we got KoolJazz and on occasion Dr Wax, they got.. some boring box buster guys! laugh.gif

Name recognition is always valuable and Beckett certainly has a well-known name. Couple that with the available resources and it's not surprising that they are able to have built a large and active message board.

Wheels are turning though, so let's see what things look like heading into our 3rd anniversary in 2008. biggrin.gif

Last night, my wife suggested that maybe she (my wife) should do the live video box break that I'm planning on filming this weekend. I'm not sure what that means completely... unsure.gif laugh.gif

I really don't think Beckett is all that bad. I'm not affected by the no eBay/buying/selling. I mean you can always sale through PMs. There are lots of very knowledgeable people on there that aren't on any other site.

I don't see why people bash Beckett all the time.

My eyes are swelling shut just watching that jack hammer of a right! laugh.gif

I am not bashing beckett.

As you said some of their members are excellent and at one time, (back in 1999-2002) the membership was superior.. Then along came the problems.. the back-biting, the infighting, the name calling, the accusations of every box break being fraudulent.. and it wasnt long before I had to find a new home cause I couldnt tolerate all that schtuff!

In fact most of the good members migrated in 2002-2003 to CP until it became overloaded with the same childishness as Beckett had..HI still has the original Beckett Hockey Club almost fully intact Quincy, alamopuck etc. that is where they all migrated to when beckett became overrun!

There are still good members at beckett and at CP and I talk frequently with the Northern boys on HI.. I could name them but if you visit there you know who they are.

Its funny how things go full cycle .. because the problem childs who ruined beckett (at least for me) now have matured and complain about the same things I did 5 years ago! But a leopard doesnt change its spots that easily they are still first to jump on the pig pile once the bashing begins!

I still visit beckett to read the articles and check out the box breaks of new product im looking to bust.. but participating.. well Once bitten, twice shy!
