Forums Offer a Place to Discuss, Debate and Learn About Antiques & Collectibles

by WorthPoint Staff (06/16/11).

WorthPoint visitors certainly love to talk about antiques and collectibles. And now they have an opportunity to talk about their loves 24/7, as WorthPoint introduces its Community Forums, giving site visitors the ability to ask questions, show off their latest finds, and share their best hints and tips concerning the just about everything collectible you can imagine.

The forums can be accessed through WorthPoint’s home page under the “Community” tab, or directly by clicking here. Within the forums, participants can find lively discussions on all things collectible, from advertising memorabilia through transportation and vehicles, and everything in between.

These forums have been in the making for quite a while. WorthPoint engineers and technical staff worked tirelessly to create a visually attractive, easy to use platform to encourage discussions and create a true sense of community. Pictures are simple to post and conversations and updates are easily tracked. Users can even subscribe to a particular forum or have updates delivered right to your in-box via a RSS feed.

The forums are moderated by longtime Worthologists Maggie Turnipseed and Rebekah Kaufman, who provide content, answer questions and keep the conversations lively, on point, and rated “G!” Maggie and Rebekah are long time antiques enthusiasts and social media advocates, so managing this project is a natural for both of them.

“The Forums have been anticipated for several years,” said Turnipseed. “It is great that we have achieved that goal, and the forums are up and running. I have high hopes that the area becomes a very active social site and that many people post information and photos of their recent finds or family heirlooms and receive comments and information about their treasures from our amazingly knowledgeable extended family of WorthPoint visitors!”

“Worthpoint has always been a leading provider of sales records and associated information on art, antiques and collectibles. With the launch of the forums, we extend our reach and knowledge base exponentially by including the expertise of our entire community of friends, visitors, and customers,” said Michael Sapienza, VP for marketing and sales for WorthPoint. “This is a great accomplishment for WorthPoint, but more so for the world of visitors who will benefit from this dynamic new resource.”

Although only officially launching in early June, initial forum visitor statistics are impressive. More than 3,500 visitors have already clicked into the Forum, posting questions, comments and ideas on antiques and collectibles. Some individual chat strings drawn in more than 400 users. Clearly, folks like what they see once on the site—the average visitor stays almost twice as long on the interactive Forums as they do on other WorthPoint web site pages.

If you haven’t already, check the Forums out yourself do so, and be prepared for a little learning and a whole lot of fun

    I’ve been looking forward to a Community chat arrangement for WorthPoint. I want to be able to recommend this to my readers for questions I can’t answer. In addition, WorthPoint has always been a great resource for my own inquiries. Thanks, WP!
