  • James Shand. I agree. In my opinion, the changes have made the site difficult to use. Change is fine, but change that actually works, and/or improves things is certainly preferable. I've been frustrated enough the last few days, I've just cursed, kv…
  • Unless I'm mistaken, a random review of the comments here suggests that the changes to the website are not being entirely well received. Certainly, the comments weigh on the negative side, which I am inclined to agree with. I can categorically state…
  • Dave Bennett. Why are you going there?! I said my piece. That's my opinion. It's not incumbent on me to clarity that it's something other than an opinion. I presume your comments are just YOUR opinions. They were at the very least impolite, and it w…
  • Hi Carol. I was just recalling the bad old SG days. What a horrible fiasco. Half the time the site was down for hours. FYI, Jeffrey Whitney, the search box is royally messed up, as my previous posts have mentioned. The easiest work around when the b…
  • Ron, seriously funny! The site's problems - not so funny. Does anyone know if anyone that runs the site is paying any attention to the complaints? I put in an innocent trouble ticket request the day the site changed, due to the problem with the sear…
  • You may want to check out the New Hip Stamp chatter forum. The site recently changed substantially - and ALL of the changes are bad - ALL. I also put in a trouble "ticket" when this changed, because the search box at the top of the page works either…
  • I'm a buyer not a seller, and I have to agree with all of the sentiments about the new site. There are so many things not just different but screwed up. I'm on HS every day and have been for years, but I have been so frustrated with the glitches and…
  • Oh boy, more terrible changes. It's been said repeatedly, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" but this bears repeating. I was just placing an order, and after adding items to the cart, there is no number indicating any items in the cart. It only show…
  • I do have a suggestion for some posters that might be helpful. If you have difficulty finding some particular page that you use a lot, but is hard to find or get to now, you can bookmark it. I added a bookmark for Items I'm watching, my Favorite sto…
  • There are a number of new problems with the way the site is working. The search box either locks up or it won't accept my mouse highlighting. For example, type in a search such as Netherlands 383 and hit enter. The items come up. If you think ok, ho…
  • Looks like you haven't received a response yet. I second this!! And I had not even thought about it before. I am always watching a large number of items (I won't say how many because you'll think I'm crazy!). Ultimately, If it could be introduced as…
  • Absolutely!
  • I'm not a specialist at all, but I was recently trying to organize a number of Belgium stamps of this design recently, and the similar design where the country name is in a banner. Much craziness ensued. There are so many listings and disparate numb…
  • Just wanted to say YAY. This is going to be such a help. While I have a large want list, some items are ones I've been punching in on HipStamp almost weekly hoping to find. Some are surprisingly difficult! Thanks for this new Want List feature.
  • I checked with Hip Support over the weekend because it was driving me crazy LOL. At the moment they say you can't get rid of it. It is pretty annoying. I imagine they'll reconsider if enough people mention it.
  • Doug, thanks for your kind words. Interesting concept. I think it would work for those dealers that might want to take the time to look at it. Of course, as I say, I'm looking for some very inexpensive items, but that's what I personally love about …
  • Thanks for your comment Harry. My situation is such that I buy inexpensive items. I'd be hard pressed to say I've spent over $20 on a single stamp. I collect the whole and there are some odd gaps. Stamps that I can't find online or at stamp shows. M…
  • Mark, thanks. I used the Want List a few times and wasn't sure how it worked or if it sent any notices, so I stopped putting items on it. The new version with the priority buttons looks really great. My personal "high priority" items are ones I manu…
  • I've had this happen with one seller. When placing orders items ended up in two orders for the same seller. To me it looked like the seller may have had two stores on Hipstamp, but not on purpose. I contacted the seller before completing the order. …
  • Mark, thank you for responding but I respectfully disagree. Certainly the seller's multiple copies of his item should remain available, but not on one's personal watch list. Let me explain. 1) It seems to me that once I have purchased an item (e.g. …
  • You can go to watching and type in Albania in the Listing Title or ID. Any that you are watching will come up. There isn't a total at the bottom however, which is a feature I was going to suggest at some point. The total would be especially helpful …
  • IT WORKS! Now I'm a happy camper.
  • My apologies, I should look before I comment. I do see the Add to Cart button now. Sorry. I'm still confused as all get out, but I will play around with this some more. It looks like everything except the "export to" option should be working, so I'l…
  • There are a number of things I can't figure out how to do. I did have a very late short discussion with Mark last night but I don't think he understood where I was coming from, and he is, I'm sure, beyond busy, so, I'm looking for assistance. Now th…
  • Ross, I have the same issue - I have had two orders arrive since the change to HipStamp and was not able to leave Feedback. That section doe the same thing to me - "0 entries". It should be on the same page as the received page but if not, it should…
  • The first time I placed an order I had the items I was watching listed on my screen and there are check boxes next to each item, along with a check box at the top that highlights all of the check boxes at once, but then there does not appear to be a…
  • I'm not sure were on the same page Perhaps I'm not doing this correctly but this is something I would do for every order, that's why I'm stumped. Hopefully the screen shots below will help. For example, I'm watching 3139 open items. I can sort the…
  • This is a very interesting topic and one that I had not spent much time thinking about. I do remember one seller on BS that was always listing items far exceeding catalog value. I would often see this sellers items and think, "what is he thinking?" …
  • Hi, all. l want to put in my two cents worth and just say I for one am very excited about this new site. It is definitely a learning experience, but I would just ask that everyone take a deep breath and be a little bit patient. Also double check thi…
  • Thanks so much. All things considered, you guys are doing a fantastic job!
