@shrewbeer - That’s been there far too long. I feel like “soon” means “one of these YEARS.”

If given the option of #1 priority being a registry or turnaround time - sorry but I choose TAT hands down

Glad I found this thread...I've spent 30 minutes trying to find a census on CBCS. That's a huge determining factor on a books perceived value.

CBCS is only going to prioritize it if customers demand it. In my opinion, this should be the absolute highest priority (second only to speeding up TAT's which they have already started improving). The census and registry are really the only major feature keeping CBCS trailing behind CGC (regardless of what people think of the quality of each company; i'm purely referring to the options offered). In my opinion, the lack of census and registry is a primary force behind keeping really high-end collectors, competitive collectors, and dealers from using CBCS over the competition.

I could not agree with this more.

The registry would be a bit more challenging due to all of the rules and validation that would be required to build out as well as an internal workflow to maintain it and ensure its integrity as people submit books as well as make changes as they sell books.

I know their IT team really only consists of 1 or 2 developers so i suspect that the main reason for the 2+ year delay is just that it is just not priority; which is the primary reason of the monthly pings of this post, trying to just keep a reminder that it is something that we as customers want and need.



Same as above.

Never mind the fact that I am unable to do something as simple as quoting 2 posts without a syntax error.😩

To avoid further butchered misquotes on my part, I will just add an emphatic "Amen, Brother!", in response to MarcJ's post (post #17) in this thread.
