What's so difficult? The cards are all numbered. People could just look at who's got what, and who needs what, and act accordingly.

What about a Google Doc?

Because there are already two pages. Imagine six. Or fifty. Try to find who still has what... Also, this could be a resource for people who don't do WOWAY. Just thinking for collectors how to make this a useful list.

Jon, do you think Google docs would do it?

If I can put in two cents here, my astrobiology class this previous year used GoogleDocs to share research with one another on different projects, and from experience, I can say that I agree that it could work here.

Definitely the best thing out there for collaborative online work. Question is what would that spreadsheet actually look like? Maybe down one column we list all the cards 1 thru whatever, next column describes what that card is, next column lists users who have doubles of each card. Then if someone needs a particular card, they can look at that list and contact.

That's kind of what I was thinking. Then as they are traded, the ones on the available list could be deleted. Or something.

I'd say one column with all of our names, then a column for each card. Then an x for who has which ones.

Ah, I see what you mean, Bobbi.

Whatever you guys think would make it easier, go for it.

I'm not worthy....I'll turn in my nerd card....I just admire nerds.

Or is it your White & Nerdy card? :)

As a card collector from way back, I am very much intrigued by this merchandising venture.
You have quickly thought up such matchless phrase?

Oh, I think I can still be White and Nerdy, sicne I did dress in full Ren Faire regalia for a Weird Al concert. It's just the techie stuff I know little to nothing about. Once you all figure this out, I'm sure it'll make things easier.
