Greetings from Crave!

We’ve been listening to your ideas on ways to make our Transformers marketplace better for the fandom. Many of you have had thoughts on pricing and quality in the past. That is why this week we’re excited to bring you a new comment system with notifications. Now you can comment on Transformers listings you’re interested in and get feedback directly from the seller on the listing page.

Here’s what you can do with the new comments system:
- Post questions to the seller about the listing
- Share comments about quality and pricing on the listing page
- See the opinions about the listing from others

Think the price is too high? Tell the seller directly.
Found a great deal? Give it your recommendation.
Curious how that loose G1 from 1984 can be in ‘Near Mint’ condition? Ask the seller how it was stored.
Know something about the history that will help fans decide to buy or not? Share your information.

This is just another step towards our goal of making Crave the easiest way to find Transformers on your want list. So check out our listings below and click on any to visit our site www.crave.com to start commenting.

@FflawSuperior,

We hear you on the Facebook front and will keep you posted. However, I would like to let you know that we have already taken some of your earlier feedback to heart. Along with the updated comments system mentioned above, we also rolled out a new homepage this morning. Now the recent listings on the homepage show actual photos submitted by the sellers as opposed to our catalog shots. We have also made the right click/'ctrl' click available. Now you can open up listings from the homepage in a new window or tab.

We are continuing to work on more updates so stay tuned, and thanks for your feedback.

I did see that new front page, tried the ctrl+click, and all that - Great steps forward already 8)

Though possible temporary problems arose - I'm getting your 404 page when I search:

And if I click "Browse" I get this:

http://i53.tinypic.com/a6xix.jpg Stuck like that (using Firefox, Chrome, and IE). I'll keep trying on my end, b(o.o)d *I* might need to update a driver

Also - If that "select a series" is what I think it is, will be a great way to search.

The fix for the search and browse has been implemented. Browse, search and the rest of the main page are running at 100%!

Greetings Seibertronians!
I want to let you know that in addition to the new comments system on listings on the Crave marketplace, we have another new feature today.
We just released a brand new home page where you can see the recent comments on listings. Now you know what's popular and what the great deals are.
Come check it out and share your opinion on the listings.
