#MW Magazine! Hello vinylmation and pin traders/collectors/lovers! For the magazine, I have two pages dedicated to these wonderful little addictions. However, I need some content from you folk! For the vinylmation page, I need information on a topic of your choosing that has to do with vinyls--what a "chaser" is, best places to buy them, how to avoid bad trades, your opinion on the new vs. old mold etc. It's up to you! Same thing goes for pin traders. I already have a profile from SG about how to spot fakes, how to pin trade, and I have a "Pin trading lingo" section, but I need original content from one of you! Topic of your choosing :). Please comment below with what you'd like to talk about, and then DM me your email address so we can chat! Thanks!!
I agree with Cali. A vinyl 101 would be a great way to start. When you are new to collecting you don't realize the ins and outs of the hobby. Some tips on how to know when you're swimming with sharks could be helpful. I think a calendar of upcoming releases would also be a cool feature. Perhaps there could even be a section for some MWers to display their custom work. I have seen some cool customs done by some very creative people here on MW. I would assume if it isn't the centerfold of the mag already, Vinylmation Theatre should definitely be represented somewhere. I've only been collecting for a year so I know you can find much wiser traders than myself. However feel free to contact me if I can help out MW in anyway.  - AgentP   113.1 #3188 4-21-12 9:20PM Like(1)  Reply
Thanks for all the feedback! Courtesy of CaliCanuck, the first issue's vinylmation section is done, but I still would love some ideas from pin collectors or traders  :) - KylaShea   629.1 #271 4-26-12 9:57AM Like(1)  Reply
you could start off with the basics, so as to maybe inform those who don't know much about the world of vinylmations.. I can help with what I know, but there are other, more seasoned traders, who are more informed than me.  Send me any questions you have to CaliCanuckMW@gmail.com

Cali, Mickey, Agent P --- Can you guys each compile a list of say 5 tips for Vinyl 101? Then I'll create a little How-to for the page. I know some will be the same, but that's okay. post here when you're finished and I'll DM you my email :) Thank you SOO much! And vinylmation theatre is a great idea--definitely something to look into!  - KylaShea   629.1 #271 4-22-12 6:50AM Like  Reply
I agree with Cali! I also think that a list of helpful collector sites would be good. I also did see a bad ebay seller list on one site for vinyl collectors- great to help avoid buying scrappers! I found that extremely useful and I think many new collectors would too! - SteamboatMinnie   310.6 #751 4-25-12 12:43AM Like  Reply
