Hello!

I've been lurking around SMC for a bit and figure this
subject was brought up before, but can't seem to find it
in the forum.

When I first started using SMC, I created a stash of just
'owned'. I know this is kind of redundant what with the
wish list function (under which I use more
differentiation, ironically(, but when I just feeling the
place out, it seemed like it made some overly simplistic
sense.

As I've added more to my stash, I've begun pondering how
to use the stash categories in a more useful way. One
obvious way is to categorize according to comic book era,
but I'm wondering what others around here use? I suppose
genre and publisher are also possibilities, but what do
YOU use?

Mine are basically by publisher, but my wish list has 1st appearances
and Rocketeer separate.

My Public Stash

I sort mainly by character or team, but I've also got my publisher lists for comics that I just don't have a whole lot of but fall under the publisher umbrella.

Format and publisher. I made the switch to digital comics not too long
ago, so "Digital - DC Comics" is separate from "Print - DC Comics,"
even though there's some overlap between the two.

Yeah, I wish you could stick the same issue in more than
one stash, but I guess tags could also be used for that
sort of function, too. I'm guessing that having the same
issue in more than one stash would kill some of the stash
total calculations, especially that concerning how much the
issues are worth.

I stash mine by character/ group. If there isn't enough of them they get shoved in a publisher general stash. I.E I have a lot of Teen / Team Titans stuff so they get their own category, but I only have one series of Rez Man so he goes into the Misc DC category!
