My first blog post on the new (still beta) ANA site! So far I am loving the new look, how clean and modern it is. Functionality seems high, and I look forward to bug fixes and new features in the coming months. I am very excited! I successfully updated my screen name, my avatar, and created a test collection, and added some photos and basic coin information. I also updated my email subscription preferences, and basic info like cell phone numbers. All seems to work nicely.
I would like one major feature added, is possible. I think that for TPG graded coins, both PCGS and NGC should all the ANA API access to their certification database. When I add an NGC coin, it should automatically pull in the date, grade, denomination, etc. This would make their collection system much more likely to be used by ANA members.
I will keep this post short, as I am not sure if it will be wiped out when the site "goes gold" and the beta launches to the public.
Thanks for looking,
