Doesn’t work

I used to love this app for the past three days it hasn’t worked you can’t even scan anything in anymore. If you do the bar starts going up and then it just stops and it never fully loads. And if you try to get in contact with the app developer it sends you to a stupid screen where you click contact at App developer and it puts the box so far off to the side of the screen you can’t use it

Developer Response ,

You've probably noticed over the past several days that the hobbyDB website has been experiencing serious issues with lots of downtime. We want to sincerely apologize for the trouble. We know how frustrating it is to have the site go down right when you're trying to contribute to the database and price guide or manage your collection.

Our development team has been tirelessly working on it, and they've made a lot of improvements to the code and underlying infrastructure even just within the past few hours. We have an amazing team and we're grateful for their tireless work!

It seems the problems were caused by some runaway queries (queries are function triggered when someone performs actions on the site like doing a search or using features) that were taking up too much memory, first bringing down one of our servers, then in quick succession all of our other servers as well.

Our developers have made some big changes to our server infrastructure, including creating more database connections, setting up more server analytics so we can monitor the servers more closely, and separating the back-end admin functions from the front end so if one goes down the other can still function (prioritizing the front end to keep you guys up and running as much as possible).

As of this writing, hobbyDB is back up and running, and we're hopeful that it will stay that way! The real test will be tonight when our cron jobs run (scheduled automation tasks to do things like recalculate Estimated Values and update your collection values). We've temporarily enabled more detailed analytics so if it does go down again we'll be able to see exactly which query is misbehaving and fix it ASAP. We'll continue to work on performance and infrastructure this week and probably into next week to iron out any remaining issues.

Thanks for being patient with us through all this! Once we get it all figured out the site will be better and stronger than ever. 💪

Great Idea but could be better

Please add a Box to identify those with Errors. Please allow user to add an image and information to items not found. Having to Stroll for an item takes a long time only to find the item not listed or different. Would be nice if while typing in the Search box if named Item would be come up if in the Database. Would be nice if my Collection would be listed by name, Number, Series even Year introduced. Tho may take several pages to accomplish for each category. I am new to the Site so still learning how to locate Items, and a faster way. I have spent several days so far building my inventory and at this rate could take all year working it 10 - 12 hours a day. Just my 2 cents. Thanks for a great Idea, don’t know it there are others, I am here to stay just hope my suggestions are seen as credible.

Make the inventory Printable, With all the work I’m putting in God forbid that something happens to the site. I have heard nothing on my prior Suggestions.

These are great suggestions. Some of the answers are already at help.hobbydb.com, but I'll add them here too: 1) You can click the red "flag" button to alert us of errors, 2) We have a training process to upgrade users like yourself so you can add and edit items. Our entire community is built on volunteers like yourself, 3) We would like to add autofill for search, and will eventually, but it takes a lot of CPU to accomplish, 4) you should be able to filter and sort your collection by name, number, series and year. Check our tutorial and help pages... or reach out to us directly. 5) We are always adding and improving on ways to search and browse the site... it's amazing how difficult it is to organize 1,000,000+ items! As always, thanks for your feedback. If you are interested in volunteering, let us know at support@hobbydb.com and mention that I sent you (Zack).

Potential

Has the potential to be a very helpful and amazing app for collectors. Don’t fully understand we’re their estimated values come from but action figures I own that I know for certain sell consistently for $70 to $150 on eBay this app estimates at $20. I like how box and item condition can be added into the details section of each entry into your collection, but honestly think that it could be made much easier to add and remove items from your collection entries. The Funko app even though it does not have a database for things other than funko is a very seem-less type app that makes it super easier to manage your collection. I have removed this app from my phone for now because it is too time consuming to use but will definitely be watching for this app’s improvement, because it does have the potential to be very useful to collectors.

Developer Response ,

Hi! Thanks for the feedback. Our pricing data is entered by members and contributors from actual eBay sales and auction houses. The more data we get, the more accurate it is. We’ve just recently started adding pricing for action figures, which is why you may be seeing the differences…. Any interest in joining the squad? The more members we have, the more accurate our prices will become! Ask for me, Zack.
