I've been reading a lot about Zistle from my blog buddies lately. I had honestly never heard of the site until I started blogging. I made an account a while back, but never added any cards. Right now my collection is perfectly cataloged in an excel file that's pretty easy to find what I need, and I am building a master checklist off of Beckett's checklist.
Simply put, I just didn't feel like imputting my 13,000+ Pirates cards yet again. Buuuuut...I'm a fickle, fickle man. I decided to give the site a try over the weekend, and I can see some benefits.
But can any of you Zistle experts give me a walkthrough? Is there a quick way to import large collections? I saw you can import, but only by set and subset. Not bad to knock out team set of 1993 Donruss, but a little more annoying for that obscure 2005 Donruss parallel that I only have one of. Any tips? I was thinking if I sort my Excel file by player, it might be a little faster to add to Zistle. But any way I cut it, it just seems very time consuming.
And is there any way to report/delete multiple entries of cards? The OCD in me is really irked seeing 1976 Hostess, 1976 Hostess Hand Cut, and 1976 Hostesss Hand Cut Panels on my want list when it's all the same damn set. But it doesn't look like there's any way for users to clean up or report duplicate entries.
Any other suggestions or comments on the ins and outs of Zistle-dom would be appreciated. If anybody is interested, you can find my Zistle profile here, though I still have thousands and thousands of cards to add.
