On hobbyDB, we take your privacy seriously. For some, their collection is sacred, and they are using collection management purely for their own enjoyment. While for others, they'd like to shared the details of their collection with the world. We've created a system that allows both personas to manage their collections the way they want. 

What's Public & Private?

By default, items added to your collection, and listed as "Public" or "For Trade" are viewable on your profile. Others can navigate to your profile and see these items. Default items in your collection will look like this: 


On your profile, these items will appear as follows:

Setting Items as Private

If you wish to set any of your items as private, and therefore, not viewable on your profile, simply...

  1. Navigate to your collection, find the item(s) you wish to make private and click "Actions" and then "Edit"
  2. You'll be taken to the edit page. At the bottom you'll see a "Privacy" section. Select from the dropdown which privacy level you'd like to set the item to, then click "Save".

Now, when you navigate to your Profile, the item will not appear to passersby.

Is Wish List Private?

The items you have in your Wish List are not viewable by other users. You don't have to worry about others emulating your Wish List and swiping that grail out from underneath you!
