Suggestion for the "Hobby Resources" section: a short guide to buying online. As someone just getting back into collecting after a years-long absence, it would be nice to have a short primer on the ins and outs of buying online in 2012. The major retailers (Blowout, Dave & Adam's, etc.), the different kinds of boxes (hobby v. jumbo v. retail), the secondary markets (eBay, COMC), and anything else I've missed. I'd be happy to draft it myself, but I've only been doing this for a few weeks, so I wouldn't want to post it without having a more experienced collector review it for accuracy. Is it worth drafting? --mschubert 14:15, 27 March 2012 (EDT)

Go for it! The good thing about a wiki site is that anyone can edit and improve it. Crowdsourcing. --stalegum 14:09, 27 March 2012 (EST)

Posted. Didn't want to add it to the "Resources" section, in case there's some better location for it that I'm missing, but if there's not, I'd suggest it be added there (along with the "Collecting Cards" article that I stumbled onto this evening, which is similarly valuable information for a newbie) (and, for that matter, any others along these lines that I'm not aware of). Alternately, if you think these don't belong in "Resources," perhaps we could create some sort of sticky "Newbies: These things are for you!" box elsewhere on the front page? --mschubert 02:32, 28 March 2012 (EDT)
