I ask every blue moon, so I figure I'll ask again: any chance of the size search function being fixed? That is to say, when I try to search by specific dimensions, every single time, no matter what I enter, it ignores what I enter and just shows every single print in the database as a result. Been like this for years and years now.

Is anybody here thinking about / working on a mobile app? I realize (or think anyway) that this is all volunteer time, so that’s a big ask. But among the various sites competing for attention in this space, I feel like a mobile app would be a game changer. I took photos of my collection a couple weeks back, and just swiping through them in Photos is SUCH a nice experience relative to anything that’s currently available. You just need the ability to see your portfolio, update your Collection/WT/ISO, and receive push notification for new trade/sale alerts or new art alerts. I feel like most of the heavy lifting is already done with the backend being in place. Live chat/DM would be icing.

I’m not a developer, but I lead product for a fintech company... and I’ve previously worked on digital trading card apps, which obviously have huge parallels to this domain. I’d be happy to provide some mocks, specs, and lend a hand doing QA for a mobile effort. 🤷🏻‍♂️

it's not the ideas we are lacking but the volunteer man hours to implement them. i give the authors of the site credit for building it, but the site was not built with modularity or refactoring in mind. i doubt a mobile app is "worth" the time and effort. though a mobile compatible website would certainly make sense in the long run.

Fair enough. Definitely appreciate all the work that’s gone it to getting this place running and stable again. Thanks for all you and the other volunteers do.
