HissTank Database Suggestions

Post up any suggestions you have for the system. Not individual figure changes, but rather - the way things are laid out, cross linked, different ways of browsing, new entry fields to keep track of, etc.

We may not do them all, and we may not do them immediately if we do, but this will give us a running tally of things you guys are interested in. And things to mark down on our behind the scenes "to do list".

Later!

I think it's missing a 12" corner for the Toy Database.

12 inch, sigma 6 (8 and 2.5 inch), convention exclusives, and vintage are all not done yet.

Eventually, we will put them all in.

Whenever they are viewed by year or theme, they are listed alphabetically, which is the quickest way to find a figure. Is it possible to also view them by the wave that they were in, or the order they were released throughout the year. Being able to quickly figure out which wave that a figure was in, or what other figures were in their wave can help to explain there scarcity or lack there of years later.

You guys are doing it already, but please remember to keep taking those pictures that show all the accessories!

That one pic is a big resource all by itself!

Will do, and will go back to the ones we missed and get accessory shots of them too.

Right now, not possible. But we can look into making wave info it's own field and sortable down the road.

Thank you for the response.

I know that these are a pipe dream but:
A few other things that interest me when searching a Joe database are:
1. Figure variants next to each other in the same picture.
2. A list with of all of the other figures that share parts in common with that figure. This can help a lot when part searching for customs.
3. A list of all the Julian dates that have been found stamped into the packaging for that particular figure. This helps for identifying variants and figuring how long a figure was in production.

Pics of the known variants of each item would be awesome. The community could probably help fill in a lot of those gaps. The only listings I've noticed so far have been only text.

Great work and photos. Love this site. Been lurking for a while.

It's a lot of work, but it'd be really helpful to see all the obviously different versions of a character in the same photo, side-by-side to show the evolution of engineering, scale differences and different sculpts and factory kitbashes.
