Would/Could there be a way a user could to say, set a password on their private collection, so they could allow certian individuals to view the private collection?

I dig this idea a LOT.

There's a few members on here that I would love to view their collection, but it's a bit difficult.

Instead of a having a password, you might want it set up to allow the user to select who can view their collection.

Actually, I don't mind sharing most of my collection with everyone. However, there are a few prints in my possession I'd rather not make public. (Saves me from too many annoying inquiries.) That's why I have opted for keeping my collection private. Maybe a check off box could be added so the collector could indicate those posters he/she would like to make available for public viewing.

That's so annoying that people send unsolicited messages inquiring about prints in your collection that aren't in the FS/FT section of your page. Have you guys tried adding a message saying this isn't a welcome action to your "About" section? Personally I keep my collection visible because everything has a price. ;)
