I would not expect an app. For the expected number of users for it, it's not worth the estimated pricetag (quotes I've gotten have been $10K minimum, likely more around $20K+)

10 years. Cool. Donations will keep it going for years to come. Don't wait until February to make your next donation, but everyone should save a few bucks a month for the next few months so some serious money can flow in to mark the start of the next ten years and ensure EB continues to be THE forum for poster art through the 'teens.

This.

And a Codeblue tribute print.

Congrats on 10 years! :pint:

Would be neat if you could export your collection to an excel or comma delimited file. Been trying to put an inventory list together for my insurance.

Go through your collection and print off each individual page for each print and highlight the values.

As a 10th anniversary present to all the old guard I plan on hacking EB and deleting all movie posters from the database.

That is a good idea. We all could use something new for the dartboard

Awesome fundraising idea, deads... Surely someone around here can create a litho with the 1st 10 Gig Posters of the Year and have include some EB text on it. Have an open "buy" period and then print how ever many are bought, so there's no risk of making copies that don't sell.

that's a good idea too! but I actually meant hitting up the artists and seeing if they wanted to do a unique collab print for the website as a thanks for the recognition and people we've introduced them to. Maybe some are still grateful for our nerdiness and crazy spending habits on artwork?

Ah, I see. Good idea.
Come on, beaners... keep these ideas coming. Let's ensure that EB will stay around for us, and grow/evolve to whatever's around the corner with our hobby/habit.
