I think it would be nice if we were able to look at a book, and put like a "to buy" sign next to it. Sometimes, I look at books, and plan on buying afterward, but then it loses it's new sign, so I don't know which ones I've purchased from. Is this a good idea? Is it too hard to code?

Thankss

re: Approval and auction idea

First thought --

A good idea, maybe in the form of a "check Box" that a buyer could manually check and uncheck when done.. ??

Approvals
re: Approval and auction idea

Check boxes next to the item numbers would be great for buying a number of stamps on the same page more efficiently! I suspect the coding is fairly time-intensive, but putting this on a "Wish List" would be great.

As an alternative, simply save the book or lot's URL to your favorites.

Auctions - Approvals
re: Approval and auction idea

I am not sure functionality like this will be of any benefit. The reason is that in the very first 5-10 minutes of a book being posted, about 15% of its best content is already sold.

If one leaves the buying part for later, the chances are all that is left would be the disappointment to see all desirable stamps already taken.

re: Approval and auction idea

I have started looking at approvals and agree that some stamps are immediately gone. I am not sure if they are for their collection or to be resold.

Approvals
re: Approval and auction idea

I don't know why stamps are bought, but does it matter? Not for me anyway.

we all know that human nature will mean, that most folks will forget to uncheck, or just not care.

I'm with Brechinite, just use paper & pen/pencil.

still sortin'....

I noticed that. Sellers will post a few gems in an approval book to add interest, and wham! Someone goes in and takes all the choice pieces but nothing else.

re: Approval and auction idea

I'm sure I'm missing something here. As a buyer, if you snooze you lose. As a seller, the focus on fast selling is quality stuff. I don't seem to be following the issue(s) presented. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Dan C.

re: Approval and auction idea

As the OP, I just want to clarify what I was aiming for. My dad and I like buying the stamps together, and sometimes I like looking at the books without buying, but then it loses its new status. All I would like is the option to make the book have the new sign again. Even if the good stamps are gone, I still need a lot of them for my collection. That's it, and thanks.

Auctions - Approvals
re: Approval and auction idea

Stamping101.

I keep a notebook and write down the Book No, country, and the seller. I also make a note of page no & item no if necessary. I also do something similar for auctions as well.
I find if I do not write it down I just can't remember.
