New Database!

Post by MegBot3000 » Tue Oct 26, 2010 5:33 pm

White Swirl is pleased to announce the launch of it's new database function!
This has been MONTHS in the making and we are very pleased that it is finally ready for use.
We would like to encourage everyone to use it, Add new items, put things up for sale, add ebay auctions, add things to your collection, etc. We have only added the TMR records thus far due to the sheer volume of items that there are to add. Please help us by adding items such as posters, White Stripes items, Merchandise, Raconteurs stuff and other related items. Anything new that comes out will also need to be added, we hope to rely on you, the user, to sustain this database. Please note that all items MUST be accompanied by a photo in order to be approved.

PLEASE keep in mind that this is not a finished product. There are several things that still need to get done such as viewing other people's collections and want lists. While we will accept suggestions for improvement we would like to request that any outright criticisms are kept to yourself. More time than you can imagine was put into this and will be put into this in the future.

Please see this thread to offer up new suggestions: http://www.whiteswirl.com/forum/viewtop ... =51&t=2711

Feel free to post any positive feedback in this thread.

To access the database simily type into your browser http://www.whiteswirl.com (HIT CTRL F5 if a black page is shown), click the "White Swirl" text in the header at the top of any page (to the left of "Board index", or click the logo at the top of the page. We would like to encourage you to change your bookmarks to http://www.whiteswirl.com so that any new items will be immediately brought to your attention.

Lastly, while White Swirl is a non-profit board and prouds itself on the ability for members to participate free of charge we would like to encourage donations in order to repay our web developer who has made all of this possible. He is not a member of the board and has spent hundreds of hours making this database for YOUR use.

Enjoy!
WhiteSwirl takes no responsibility for MegBot malfunctions.

I keep getting the old black page and have to cut/paste the URL back into my browser's address bar...possible Safari issue, do I need to delete cookies, etc? Any suggestions?

Clearing your browser cache would help.
Also try refreshing the page with CTRL and F5

So we'd really like to encourage everyone to submit items that we don't have yet and submit ebay auction numbers (current or finished) so that we can build the database up and track sales etc. There is plenty to enter but collectively, I think we can cover it all in no time at all. The more info we have recorded, the more useful this feature will be to everyone.

Is it just for TMR items or everything (raconteurs, stripes, dead weather...)?

Oooh, I like the wishlist feature too, it will let you move items into your collection once you've obtained them. This will really help!
