why not just make it your signature? then it posts everytime you do...
Lumpy's right, just set it as your sig.
i never get tired of hearing that...
i still need to finish my shmax list though...still gotta upload energon, cybertron, g1, g2, mw, and any other random things i may have forgotten...
I need to take the time to update mine. The site isn't organized very well, it's slow as hell, and won't work in Firefox for me >_<
what does this have to do with toys?
If you have suggestions for improving the organization, by all means let us know about them!
p.s. Oh, and TheNotoriousROB, I noticed that the capitalization in your name was getting mangled--I've fixed that as well.
The site set up is fine by me. However there is a big lag when the lists are loading and when adding items to your collection. I have only gotten as far as animated, alternators, and classics, and I need a break. Maybe if you could select the stuff you wanted to add and then add it all in one shot instead of one time. This way is too slow for me. I do like the over all concept but it just take to long to add all my toys one at a time
Yeah, I just tried to set that Shmax thing up...not very user friendly at all, slow too. I was hoping for more of a checklist format, not the 3rd degree...
here ya go...
I sighned up also but the site is slow slow slow and i got a couple things done but just gave up everytime i got on the site it took 30 mins to do a couple things so probally wont be using the site anymore.
Me too. I couldn't even get MP Prime added to my collection.
It only takes one click to add a toy to your collection! The details are there if you want to mess with them, but you certainly don't need to fiddle with them if you're not interested. We used to have a simple checkbox interface, but it just wasn't versatile enough to handle more complex operations (such as people owning more than one instance of a toy, or wanting to indicate that they keep it loose, etc). Every now and then we get someone who doesn't notice the "Add to my collection" link and tries to use the "Add Package" or "Add Figure" links, which takes you to a big scary form. Is that what happened to you?
For those of you reporting slow performance--don't grumble about it here, post it in the shmax forums! I spent a good month optimizing the site, but every now and then the search-bots will discover something I missed. I suspect the recent lag was caused by "symbol searches", which were taking up to 60 seconds and causing all other page requests to pile up. I've just now replaced those searches with a more friendly faction name search. So, things should be better now. Happy clicking...
Nice idea but, _WAY_ to slow.
I would suggest the edit collection have a text only listing style option. So when I go to the Alternators listing it gives me a text list of all the Alternators. I check off the ones I have (via checkboxes) and hit add to my collection.
So i just joined the shmax to set up a checklist for myself. It's slow, and I can see how a person can feel they've accomplished something by doing this. It's going to take a long time to do it.
i don't use mine as my sig, because i like mine but it is a handy checklist
I can see my flash sig at shmax but I don't think it works here.
That and the ridiculous amount of emails I get from them every week. Not worth it.
What emails are you talking about? By my count I've sent less than 10 system-wide emails in more than 3 years of running the site, and certainly never more than 1 in a week. Is that really annoyance enough to make the entire site "not worth it"? I knew you fans were tough to please, but this is getting ridiculous!
it's modest, but mine.
