Idea:

You should add pre-orders (and the cost you're paying) to the game list and let you specify from which retailer you have a game pre-ordered. Then, you can connect it to the price tracker and e-mailer to notify people of a better deal on another site...

I have to say, I've been very impressed with the quality of the collection tracker here. I've always kept my collection cataloged online - first at IGN, later at Gamespot. Simple features here, like being able to effortlessly mark games as completed or in progress or, more importantly, the ability to export, make this system superior.

Features I might suggest? Allow sorting by console, or display only games from a given console. IGN used to do this a few revisions back, though they've since removed it. It should be trivially easy to implement, but I think it would make the collected data even easier to sort through. Also potentially useful: adding some simple metrics to track the popularity of games (putting an average rating & number of other CAGs who own/want a game in the grid)

I'd love to have my collection listed here on CAG... though I wish there was some way to import collections from IGN, as it is a daunting task to migrate them manually.

There is the export feature, could we have an Import feature????

My catalog goes up to 1200 and it would not be at all worth to re-duplicate without an import function.

I could just add a few to enter the contest, but that's not really the point here.

There is a ton of stuff we can do with the collections. We gotta get on that.

Yeah, in the meantime...just enter one to get into the contest. I know John was working on a way to import from other collections. xycury, is your collection on another website or in a spreedsheet?

Just updated my collection with everything I can remember off the top of my head. I really like the Contest section of the site, nice being able to easily see what to do to earn more tickets. Also added 2 games to the collection database that were missing.

I love CAG's collection system, and have been using it since it came out of beta. Being able to add games to the database was extremely helpful for some of my less popular titles.

I like the collection system, but it would be nice if there were more classic/import titles. I would really like to be able to inventory my entire collection. :bouncy:

Awesome contest. I've used the collection sporadically in the past and have been slowly adding my stuff there. I just got finished adding my stuff to The Backloggery, though, so I know completing the collection here will take a very, very long time.

I do wonder what our official count is now. I know Cheapy said it already hit 400,000 but a progress meter could be nice.
