Feature of the Month - Categories

April 8, 2011 4:29:33 AM UTC by Kevin Dawidowicz in Lobby

Learn how to use categories to bring your items to the attention of like-minded enthusiasts, find their items, and chat about current events that closely mirror your interests.

Meet Mike. Mike, according to his wife, is obsessed with Major League Baseball memorabilia to the exclusion of all other things, including food, oxygen, and her. When Mike logs into CollectorsProof.com, he wants to be notified instantly of any new articles, discussions and items having anything to do with our grand old game. He has as much interest in the dynamic, scandal-ridden world of Star Trek (http://www.collectorsproof.com/category/star-trek) collecting as his wife's cousin Hedwig's gallbladder operation. We've obliged Mike - and you, too - with the launch of Categories.

The next time you're on My Account (https://www.collectorsproof.com/my-account), go under My Categories (https://www.collectorsproof.com/my-account/categories) and "follow" the categories you're interested in.

Question: What does it mean to "Follow" a Category?

When you follow a Category, your My Notifications tab will update every time someone tags an item or blog post with that Category. This is a great way to cut through the noise and see and hear all about the areas you are most interested in. Just ask Mike. Mike added MLB (http://www.collectorsproof.com/category/mlb) to his Categories and now he goes right to his notifications to see what his fellow MLB enthusiasts have chatted about and posted while he was eating dinner with his wife and her boring cousin Hedwig.
