Ever feel like you’re destined to do more? We do.
Believe it or not, hobbyDB relies on the generosity of Curators to keep our numerous catalog items clean from misinformation that could be lurking around every query.
Curators are users with special powers that we trust to edit specific information on the site. You can curate something as specific as an individual catalog item. But you can go beyond just one item, you can even curate a subject of anything from as small as the Personal Happiness Happy Labbits vinyl toy series, or as expansive as all the pieces done by Hot Wheels designer Larry Wood. You can even curate a specific casting and its variants. For example, Robinator is the Curator of the Dairy Delivery…and all 108 variants of that casting.
As an added bonus, you get a special badge AND your avatar is on the item page you curate… so everybody knows who’s boss.
Why join the Curation Nation you ask?
- Revel in the pride of keeping your favorite collectible page clean and spiffy.
- Whatever you choose to curate will be a handy resource used by researchers and collectors alike.
- Most importantly, you don’t have to be an expert…just somebody with a favorite subject.
All you have to do is think about what exactly you would like to curate, and tell us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Already a Curator? Update your avatar with a photo of yourself or your collection for a chance to be featured on our dedicated Hot Wheels Curator Page going live later this week. Selfies are acceptable!
Recruit your buddies to become Curators and form an elite misinformation-fighting task force designed to tackle the most in-depth subjects on hobbyDB (Mercedes-Benz, perhaps?). Multiple members can curate a single subject, and a single member can curate as many pages as they’d like.
Reminder: We will be in Los Angeles with Rob Graves (aka Robinator) for the National Hot Wheel’s Convention from September 30th – October 4th. If you’re in the area, we’d love to see you there!
