  • Welcome To The New Bench

    Welcome to The Bench. Sports card trading and talk community.

    For all the established members that have been with us for the past 10 years, things are
    going to look a little different around here. Might take some time to get used to your surroundings, but rest assured all of our features are still present. Quite a bit of work has gone into keeping the site just like it used to be, but with a breath of fresh new features for you to enjoy.

    The old BLUE Navigation bar is no longer here. The links are now condensed in some drop down menus. The community tab within the forums store all of your familiar links. Collector's Database, TTM address, Help Desk, Bench Hall of Fame.

    The UserCP page is long gone. In it's place is the "My Profile" located at the top of the screen next to the log in box. From there you have multiple tabs:

    Activity is like your Subscribed Threads
    Trading your trade data
    I Collect your collecting interests
    Awards your site awards (benchies etc...)

    Please report any errors you may find during this process, as it will help us address them.

      Awesome job on the webpage - it looks great! I do have one question though - the old look had all the quick links at the bottom of each post (PM/Trade/B. Page/etc...), which I don't see anymore. I saw that you can get straight to a PM or someone's www as options under their name, but the User Page and Trade options were not available. Also, I don't see where I can update my User Page in the "Settings" menu... Is that something that has gone away? Please let me know if I'm overlooking something. But, awesome work on the site - it looks very clean and professional! Thanks for all of your hard work! Brian

      The User Pages are gone...BUT in it's place is the new Blog system. Within the Blogs is an option to create up to 10 custom pages. You can use these for wantlists. I will be creating one as a tutorial shortly. Stay tuned.

      Hi,

      In the new "Trade Manager" under "Receiving", it now shows the cards that were sent rather than the cards that are incoming.

      Thanks,
      Trevor

      I don't get any of this. After reading Welcome to the New Bench, I still can't find where TTMs are and I can't find how to check my current threads or posts. What drop down menus??? this is really confusing!!!! Arghhhhhh.
