We're looking for staff.

Jan 20 2015 06:48 PM | Milenko in Articles

The Game Collecting Network started off as a simple wiki for a sub-reddit, and then we all kind of just let it sit and collect dust. This year, myself and fellow members of the network have started working on a 'roll out plan'.

So, instead of 2015 being another year of dust and depression, while cracking jokes on an IRC channel. We've decided to open up!

The main goal of this site was to cater towards collectors, but being a niche hobby we've expanded to gaming and 'geek' culture in general. If you'd like to join as a writer, or if you have a site/blog you'd like to share with the network, let us know!

Contact us at staff@gamecollecting.net

We've launched a user feedback system

Dec 29 2014 04:58 PM | Milenko in Articles

Our feedback system is live! It's pretty much in beta right now as we go forward and tweak some of the code to extend the existing functionality. It's accessible from http://www.gamecollecting.net/feedback. The goal here is to create a unified feedback system where users from different Facebook groups, websites, and Reddit communities can come to share the feedback they've gained/given to others. Currently it works like this, you have an account here with your feedback visible within the user marketplace, and your profile. You can link your Facebook, Twitter, and Steam accounts (Your passwords are not stored on our site and use those services login methods.) to your Game Collecting Network profile for better verification of trades/sales and purchases. Say you make an exchange, you then share your profile with whoever you exchanged with, they sign up, go to leave you feedback and offer up a link and comment pertaining to your exchange.

We will have moderators verifying data for Reddit usernames, once this goes live you will not be able to change the username on your profile without admin assistance.

Look for "Reddit Verified" badges in user profiles if you did an exchange on any of the numerous /r/*gameswap sub-reddits.

If you have any feature requests, comments, or suggestions. Leave them below.
