    Default Collecting Awards

    It would be a ton of work, but fun to determine the "winners" (highest score) from a collecting standpoint of King's books. We would likely separate the books into several categories-probably the same as our Wiki section: SK First Editions US & UK, Collectibles, ARC/Proofs.
    We'll set up polls and all you have to do is rate the books based upon the 3 or 4 criteria in the poll. The results would be tabulated and a 2012 DT.ORG Collectors Choice winner would be named.
    BTW, don't hold me to it, but Shannon has a tentative template for grading. All one would have to do is check the box in four areas of grading:

    Uniqueness
    A - Very unique. There is nothing else like it.
    B - Unique. Some parts of the item remind me of other items.
    C - Not unique. Nothing special, very similar to other items.

    Craftsmanship

    A - Excellent production. The finest materials were used and it is very well put together using intricate and inventive techniques.
    B - Good production. Better than your average item, but doesn't hit high marks in every area.
    C - Bland production. The publisher/producer did not care at all about using fine materials or intricate techniques to create this item.

    Artwork (Dustjacket and Interior)

    A - Beautiful artwork. Memorable and enjoyable to look at.
    B - Item includes some artwork, but it is nothing special.
    C - Item does not include artwork and/or the artwork is not good/memorable in any way.

    Importance. How important would this item be to add to your collection?

    A - Mandatory. My collection would not be considered complete until I own this item.
    B - Important. I would like to own this item, but I am waiting to find a great deal before I purchase this item.
    C - Not important. The only reason I would add this to my collection is because someone gives it to me.


    Thoughts?

    Excellent. I have actually thought of building a predictive model that would tell me what books are over- or under-valued, and this exercise would help nicely.

    I like the idea as well.

    Importance. How important would this item be to add to your collection?
    A - Mandatory. My collection would not be considered complete until I own this item.

    signed 1st edition of every book he wrote. the new lieutenant's rap.

    C - Not important. The only reason I would add this to my collection is because someone gives it to me.

    signed copies of Dean Koontz books.

    When do we start!!!

    We are trying to work out the details. I don't want to swamp the board with >150 polls, one per book. We also have to figure out tie breakers etc.

    Well, although it might not be the best idea in the electronic world, maybe you could post the awards "ballot" as a single post, and everyone can email their responses back to someone who could post the results (maybe set up a special Yahoo! email for everyone to send the responses to). A little more time consuming, but solves the issues of a ton of posts on the board.

    That is one thought. We would post a list of all the books and one criteria, members could C&P the list with a score beside each title and then PM it to the designated person. We are bouncing several ideas. I appreciate the feedback.

    Well, what we are trying to do, and this is hypothetical, is whittle the choices in each category down to the top 10. Then we would have a poll, and discussion thread for each of the 10 books to be ranked.
    Example (and please don't hold me to this-it's a work in progress), we have 5 major categories:
    • King US First Trade Editions
    • King UK First Trade Editions
    • King S/L (numbered), and I know we will have a few decisions to be made as to what is a "numbered", versus a "lettered"
    • King Lettered Editions
    • King Proofs/ARC's
    We would likely post a list of the entries for one category and ask members to C&P the list with a score for each of the four criteria. The score would be a 1-10 basis with 10 being the highest and 1 being the lowest.


    Uniqueness 1-10
    A - Very unique. There is nothing else like it.
    B - Unique. Some parts of the item remind me of other items.
    C - Not unique. Nothing special, very similar to other items.

    Craftsmanship 1-10
    A - Excellent production. The finest materials were used and it is very well put together using intricate and inventive techniques.
    B - Good production. Better than your average item, but doesn't hit high marks in every area.
    C - Bland production. The publisher/producer did not care at all about using fine materials or intricate techniques to create this item.

    Artwork (Dustjacket and Interior) 1-10
    A - Beautiful artwork. Memorable and enjoyable to look at.
    B - Item includes some artwork, but it is nothing special.
    C - Item does not include artwork and/or the artwork is not good/memorable in any way.

    Importance. How important would this item be to add to/have in your collection? 1-10
    A - Mandatory. My collection would not be considered complete until I own this item.
    B - Important. I would like to own this item, but I am waiting to find a great deal before I purchase this item.
    C - Not imporant. The only reason I would add this to my collection is because someone gives it to me.

    Sounds good to me, especially out of 10, rather than 5. Categories are good.

    ..."King S/L (numbered), and I know we will have a few decisions to be made as to what is a "numbered", versus a "lettered"...

    I might not be the brightest light on the Christmas tree, but even I know a number from a letter, even if it is a Roman numeral!

    A good example would be "The Colorado Kid". There are three that IMO fall under the "Lettered" umbrella. All three are numbered 1-33, but in order to classify them I believe they should be in the Lettered category. Not etched in stone. If we go literally by numbered/lettered I suppose it goes in the numbered category-the same with Dandelion Wine; although terribly expensive, it is numbered 1-100.. Some behind the scenes decisions will have to be made, but this is why we are discussing it.

    'All Colorado Kids are 'numbered' 1/33, or 1/150, as well as Dandelion Wine 1/100, and also 'A Book of Horrors' 1/100. They may be very limited, but they are still numbered.

    The 'Salem's Lot' 1/10 Black, or 1/15 Red Roman numerald are still 'numbered' and not Lettered. (Also Six Stories).

    I would love them all to be lettered, but my OCD only allows them to be included in my S/L numbered pages.

    I would add a category in the Importance category for us OCD (obsessive) collectors. "I don't have one, therefore I want one." A lot of my proofs would probably fall in this category.

    I like the feedback going back and forth but some things have entered my mind that I must discuss with Crow-Man. So, please don't get attached to the above (tentative) ideas.
