    Well this is just a topic to ask you if you have any desire, suggestion or idea about new functionnalities to add to the Mithril Faerylands website (both the forum and the main site and database)

    I’m open to all suggestions, but I can’t guarantee the possibility to make them happen :)

    I’ll manage to find something anyhow…. I think the improvments should not come from the community side… but from Mithril as a enterprise.. I already asked them if they wanted the site to help them in any way for advertisement and promotion and ask them if they’d like any link or tool that could help that.. But the decision must come from them… I think I managed , with this site and this forum, to gather one of the biggest community and ressource information about mithril among all other fan website . I don’t want to show pride or anything about it it is not MY work it is OUR work from all of us.. but as a strong community and source of information maybe it’s time we can use this strength to support Mithril any way we can…
    but I suppose the decision is up to Lars and Chris… (I asked Chris already but no answer yet)

    That would be a very good improvement Master Gildor.
    I also would have a improvement in mind, which was available on the old MMP. I don’t know if this is possible after everything in here is more or less linked already, but we had a list of minis to trade or want, which was linked to the actual person. You could look up what minis where for trade on the list and could see who was puttting them up for trade. A lot easier then going through all the names and check what they trade, or what they are looking for.
    I don’t want you spending lots of time figuring out how and what to do and spending even more time in putting a list like that in place, but it would be nice for collectors, not having all the minis they are looking for.
    If this is possible it would be good also, if this list could be accesed by guests of MMP.
    What do you think? All of you MMP members?

    mmhh there is already the “what I trade” and “what I want” in the profile as you well know I suppose…
    Now maybe you have not tested this capacity entirely? Because if someone has put figs in their “what I trade” list and someone else adds this figurine in His profile under “what I want” and then click on his own link he will see all the members who has this fig in his “what I trade list”..
    These are not simple lines in the profile :) it is an implicit search engine for trading…

    Now as you mention, that requires using it from the Profile window… and it would be better to have it public… I tried to do it but inside this forum structure that is nearly impossible alas :( (because I use a PunBB pre-made forum)… That would be possible though…. “maybe” to add fields in the database sheets themselves… I have to think about that…

    but that could be done in a way that assures us “anonymous people” can SEE who has it, but would require posts on the forum to communicate with this person either with invited status via Esgaroth section, or via internal Messages system if they create an account
    That would mean that only those who are members of this forum can indeed propose figs for trade/sale under their mailboard nickname indeed.. and a list of those would appear in a sub-window of the database sheet for a given fig…
    (why a sub-windows : because the list of people for a given commun figurine can be long… and as you may have seen, the database sheets are rather full of text already (if we assume I am forcedto leave space in the middle for descriptions which are sometimes long… sometimes short, sometimes empty)

    Oh, you are right Master Gildor. It seems, I didn’t understand how to use your wonderful creation. I have to try it. Thank you for the explanation. It is always helpful if you know how to use a “tool”.:)

    you can find a more precise explanation on how it works in the “guided tour of MMP” in the “new addon “trading facility”” thread :)

    in the meantime I know about something that should be made… and absolutly important … we should work together with Zoetrop on this matter… a way to inject automatically new prices for all the mithril ranges… an interface between zoetrop compilation work and my database so that’s easily updated each year… for the time being, last year I received Zoetrop file and had to check manually one by one each reference and set the correct price, if needed..

    I’ll try to get in touch with Zoetrop to put in place a “protocol” to make this update a lot easier ….

    Now this is a very good idea, Gildor. :)

    Maybe a reputation score on the forum (if the software has such a thing) – reputation being earned by submitting photographs to the database, perhaps?
