What'ya got: What'ya got?
« on: January 23, 2016, 07:28:17 PM »
Out of curiosity:

Besides showing off your own collection (and we wouldn't be collectors if there wasn't a little bit of pride involved) how do you look at the What'ya got thread?

What's of interest to you when you look at other people's purchases?

For me, it's a quick overview of titles that might have slipped past my radar or that simply remind me of what to put on my on to-be-aquired stack. So the title is good enough for me most of the time.


I post the price of my purchases not to show off the bargains that I made but rather show others where a bargain can be made.


This year I decided to also post the price per hour just for the heck of it. It doesn't have any deeper meaning (besides pointing out that TV series have a much better price to time ratio than films have ;))


So, what do you like to see there?

I'm a bit noisy too i guess on what other people buys. And i use the thread to get some great ideas to what to pick up next.
I've got quite a few movies from this thread.
So thanks guys! ;)

I'm not really nosy, but I like the thread to get ideas for movies or shows that I might have missed. For movies I like to know runtime.

I used to come here to see what others got just as much as to get inspiration what to get next or what I may have missed.

However, as I am trying to cut down purchases, I don't dare to come here as much... :bag:

:laugh:


Well, seriously though, not doing too bad, actually. Last year I bought about 30% less than the previous year. And now that Taiwan also has Netflix, I am hoping to keep that trend going, or at least not go up higher again.


So, looking at the steps (I actually never looked at these before; realize now just how religious they are), I'd say I am between 4. and 5.
