Every user can help us improve the database by flagging bad data on Database Items, Price Points and Subjects.

 "Game of Flags" card game

To flag a Database Item, Subject, or Price Point, find the red flag icon (shown here below), click it, and fill out the requested information.

Red flag icon/button

Please give us as much information as possible, for example the URL and HDBID for the duplicate Database Item, the reason why you think a Price Point should be removed, or a description of exactly which image you think should be removed.

Flags will be reviewed by the hobbyDB team and then assigned to one of our Volunteer Squad members with expertise in the item's collectible segment. The assigned Squad member will review the flag and take the necessary action for resolution. They may reach out to you via the hobbyDB messaging system if they have questions or need more information.

For now you will not receive an automatic notification when your flags are resolved, but this is in the works. Please be patient with the Squad members and your flag will be resolved as soon as possible.

If the flag icon is gray with an orange info icon next to it, that means the Price Point has already been flagged and is awaiting review. If a Price Point has a green check mark instead of the flag icon, that means it was previously flagged, reviewed, and determined to be valid.

We started recording statistics on flags in November 2020. Here is where we are as of 6 July 2022:
