Are you proposing a master list of master lists?
I think what he's saying (now that I've read it a few times), is could we set up the lists separately as individual items vs. being part of a thread? The best way I can describe it is: a single post thread that has been closed for further comment. Ruffs, am I getting it or no? Also, I am not saying I'm in favor of this idea, just trying to understand what the suggestion is.

Oh, ok.  Still not sure how that improves anything.  Does everyone realize that clicking on the name of the thread on the main page of "master lists" takes you to the very first post in that thread, where all the info is?  There's no need to go to the end and then work your way back to the top.

Yes, you nailed it. I went back & read my post again & I didn't specify what I meant but that's it Tom, have the lists separate so we all can look at them, then posts can be still done, say on this thread.  If something is forgotten, we can post here & the Master Lists are a Top of the Forum page.
Now I hope I didn't really confuse this.

I concur with you, Pat. I don't see any advantage of isolating the lists to be the only post in their thread. It is very easy to get to the first post (the actual info) for any of them as you've described.

It is true that all you have to do is go to the first post in each thread to see the master list. Then I thought maybe he's talking about creating an index to make it easier to navigate. After looking around a bit I saw the list of posts in the Master Lists child board which served the purpose to get to any master list you want, so at first I wasn't going to reply because I thought the info would be redundant.

After thinking about it for a little while, I noticed a few things
* The posts in the master lists child board weren't in any particular order
* The posts weren't uniformly formatted
* Viewing the child board, there was a lot of extra information that wasn't necessary for getting right to the list I wanted, so it was distracting.
* Although it hasn't happened yet, as soon as the number of threads on the child board hits whatever number, it's going to wrap to a second page.

These things led me to make a little test - make an HTML table to serve as an index to the master lists. This took a little digging and some time because it has to be coded, but for someone with the time & desire, you could make a nice & easy to navigate index to posts throughout the forum to quickly find what you want. Check out the sample below as a simple illustration (far from complete):




Master Lists ChildBoard          Lavirus' Master Spreadsheet         
   
Old School
Olds1 Master ListOlds2 Master ListOlds3 Master List         
Olds4 Master List          Olds5 Master List         
   
All New Series
ANS1 Master List          ANS2 Master List          ANS3 Master List         
ANS4 Master List          ANS5 Master List          ANS6 Master List         
Flashback I Master List          Flashback II Master List         
ANS7 Master List          ANS8 Master List          ANS9 Master List         
ANS10 Master List          ANS11 Master List          2014 Series 1 Master List         
Chrome Master List          2015 Series 1 Master List          Bonus & Promo Master List

Wall Art Master List         
 
For Vintage Wacky Info, Visit
Greg's Site          Rusty's Site         




With a little more time, you could arrange a table, list or in whatever format you wanted to easily read & quickly navigate to the Master List you wanted. You could sort or layout the rows or columns in whatever format you like. You could even include links to outside web pages like Greg's or Rusty's, or to your own list documents on your hard drive since not all wacky sources contain all the info you may want. You could include a brief description in each master list cell for the link.

While it is true that you can navigate to any of these places with a few click, or by remembering where you had documents on your drive or in your favorites on the web, sometimes there's something to be said for a well designed index. If the Index/Table of Master Lists were built, it could be Post #1 in a thread called Master List of Master Lists  ;)

Just a bump to notify all that I've added the six (6) MLB promo cards to the list. I call them promos 'cause that's what I believe they are. If anyone disagrees, please let me know. There is nothing further which qualifies for my list in this release, correct?

There's a few errors here. ANS7-Senior Poligripe and Abrams book(series 8-14)-Fuzzy Globs,Ghoul Talk,Powerless Glove and Snookered.Also,I could be wrong on this,but shouldn't Annoying Spitter-Man in ANS3 be numbered P1?

The Abrams 8-14 titles, you're just listing in alphabetical order; the information is correct. Why aren't you correcting the series 1-7 titles, then? The order is unimportant since they aren't sequenced in any fashion.

The Annoying Spitter-Man promo for ANS3 does not seem to have any number on it (I don't see any on my copy), so that's why there's no number (like P1) on the list.

To answer your question about the Abrams 8-14 stickers,that's the way they were packaged when I bought the book.

And in ANS7, it's Senior Poligripe.

I was inspired yesterday by the master list (thank you, bigtomi) to finally go through my collection and see what I have and what I don't have.  In doing do, I noticed that, similar to OLDS4 Sweetar, there are three back variations of OLDS5 Mess Truck - white, tan, and red Ludlow.  Should the list be updated to reflect this?

Also, if anyone has a spare OLDS4 Wrinkly Packages card - the Comic-Con version - I'd be happy to purchase!  :)

Not sure if this really belongs, (I've never counted the original as a Wacky), but the Osaka Pop Star is also available in a non-die cut, blue-rayed version on the osaka website. Most likely it does not say Wacky Packages on the back, like the original does, but I'm curious to know what's really on it.
