Joining the Doctor Who Collector List

Thanks for your interest in adding your Doctor Who collection to our public collector list.

First and foremost it must be stated upfront you MUST be 16 years of age or older to display a collection on www.richardwho.com. This is for both the minor's on-line safety and the liability of the operator of this site.

The basic process to get your collection on-line is.

  • You fillout an application form with the particulars of your collection.
  • I (Richard) create an account for you in the www.richardwho.com Collection Update System where you maintain your collection page and listing information.
  • You log into the Collection Update System and write a description of you and your collection. Then you start adding items to your collection page with photos, titles and a description.
The Name on your Collection Page
I dislike using aliases on the site but I know many people are very concerned with identity theft on the Internet so if you insist you can use a alias comprised of your First Name and the City you live in. The alias would be like "Mark in Tampa" not things like "Superstud" or "Cool Dude".

Your Personal Information
You can use an alias on your collection page but I insist on knowing who you really are. Your home address is not important to me and not required to make a collection web page. I have no desire to amass a mailing list to sell or market with. I do understand the concerns of security and respect your desire for anonymity. The only information the website will make available to the public is the Name on your Collection Page and any information you put there yourself. However the registration process is going to require of you your Real First and Last Name, a Real email Address, The City and Country where you live. If you are not comfortable providing this information then www.richardwho.com isn't the place for you just yet.

Your Email Address
The collection pages provide the public the ability to ask you questions using an email process that never reveals your email address to them. The form the user enters their question on only shows the name on your collection page. The email is generated and sent on the www.richardwho.com server, never seen by the public. You will receive an email, addressed to the email address you have on file with your collection account (you maintain). The email will be from a www.richardwho.com account with the details of the person asking the question in the body of the email. www.richardwho.com will not give your email out or use it for anything other then business on your collection page.

Pictures
Pictures of some of your items and a description are what make the pages fun and interesting. I and the other collectors love to see what everyone else has. And we love showing off our stuff too. So the more pictures you want to share the more we want to see. To show pictures on your collection page the images must be on a server or system on the Internet that allows them to be referenced by a web page. www.richardwho.com doesn't provide that service. There are no upload facilities on this site. You have to upload your pictures to a website like www.photobucket.com before you can add them to your collection page.

Copyright
It is very important that you own the copyright of any photos displayed on your page. This means you took the photos yourself, purchased the copyright or have written permission from the copyright holder to use the photo on your page. As I do my best to detour people from steeling images from the website it cannot be prevented. There are some basic security measures on your collection page that the casual computer user may find modestly difficult to get around but anyone with an ounce of computer knowledge will be able to. This is just a fact of life on the net. If you are not comfortable with this you may not want to put your collection online.

Page Narration
You are expected to write an opening paragraph or two (or three or four) that is shown at the beginning of your page. This is so we (the other collectors) know who you are, where you live and what your interests are. You can reveal as little or as much as you like as long as you don't use profanity or abusive language. www.richardwho.com isn't a dating site so information of a sexual nature is not allowed. The list of questions below may inspire you with some of the information that we find interesting to know about you and your collection.
  • What is the main interest of your collection? Merchandise, original Artwork, Props, Costumes?
  • How long have you been collecting Dr Who items?
  • Where do you find most of your Items?
  • How do you display the Items?
  • Do you do restore work?
  • Do you like to trade on-line using any of the auction sites?
  • What is your favorite or most unusual collection piece(s)?
  • What would you like to find?
  • Do you use the www.richardwho.com message board (what is your user name)?
