I'm happy to support this for UKVAC

We've just been through this with our collection and built a database for us with tons of info in it.

If you can take an XML or JSON feed from an external source rather than us having to re-type a huge amount of data - you're welcome to specify the format and i'll do the work at our end to provide.

I'll support it either way though :)

Webstore closed due to lack of interest.
We make repro cab shells.
Don't PM me - contact through website please.

Sounds great and the serial matchign sounds like an interesting idea.

I wanted to start a simialr site to try and pull together mismatched MVS carts and Kit boxes (and possibly other systems) but that seemed too bigger ajob to get any useful data into it, but if you could incorporate that then it may become useful.

Hi guys,

Ok a little late but here as some of the project goals


The system will have admins that manage it - this will be a new role at UKVAC

The system will allow serials, and provide a 'match' capability should you allow it to home an original PCB for example, to the original cab.

You will be able to hide certain items from public view, by utilising the buddy list feature. Only want your close collector friends to view your collection then apply this to all items in the collection

You can list items for sale, we are planning on providing Paypal integration for all forum users. Put an item in your list for sale at £x price, and put your Paypal username in, and someone can click though and buy it using the Paypal checkout feature.

Have 10 items that are the same like above? For example 10 superguns. Set the quantity to 10, the for sale system will count them down to 0 as they sell.

Price input will be supported, allowing you to see what you bought your collection for, this data can be used to help provide 'price guides' on PCBs and cabs when someone is just browsing a game.

The aforementioned collectors admins can also input pricing to help kick start the above.

Export to excel function. Need to export it into Office? Then do it.


That's as much as we're willing to disclose for now other than we plan to make it look extremely pretty with charts and graphs and hopefully some kind of other tie in.

Is this going to be a database built within the current software or something that bridges it?
 
I might be interested in more involvement you see.
 
Eitherway i will contribute though.

Is there any way to get more information?

Particularly:

1) Why there is a need to have a database.  What's the idea behind it?
2) What the database will include?
