    We have added a search by username and by celebrity.

    I have already asigned the actor's or actress' name to several thousand items. But I will not be able to do this for all of the 36000+ items listed. When you have the time, please add the celebrity's name using the manage your props function.

    Also: we have new "types" for your listings.
    We will try to move all of your items for you! So please give us a day or so.

    new types are:

    make-up / prosthetics
    models / miniatures
    film-crew items
    prop weapons
    set dressing / pieces
    production artwork

    If you have any questions, please let me know.

    So, does that mean that if I search for Sandrine Holt, anything associated with her prop wise will turn up? (granted, I know she's not a real well-known actress, but I'm tossing the name out there as an example)

    Yep, IF there is an item with her name listed, you will find it. (there currently is not)

    Ok, I think all the items have been moved.

    Regarding the celebrities: since I cannot add every single actor or actress on this planet, users may have to add some names themselves.

    HOWEVER: If you have more than two items from the same actor/actress, please post their name here, and I will add them for you.
    Other items by that actor or actress will have that name added then too, automatically. So no need to post names here more than once.

    speaking of photos, you can upload 5 pictures, and when you click on the big view, depending on your screen-resolution, and what size was originally uploaded, a pop-up displays an even bigger picture.

    I love yourprops! The latest improvements have been great. Any chance we can get an increase in the amount newly listed items on the front page? Sometimes it goes by so fast.

    Actually, if you just click on "SEARCH" without selecting anything, it shows you the latest items (ALL the items on YP, newest first).

    We will add a list of most recently commented on items though.

    Are uploads still limited to 600 pixels wide Tim ?

    Nope. That was a long time ago. The "large" image displayed is 600 pixels wide, but when you click on it, a larger one will be displayed in a pop-up if the original image was larger than 600 pexels wide.

    I have added celebrities to about 4000 items. Basically by going thru the items, looking for names, and by searching for character names and props:
    i.e. anything Marty McFly will have Michael J. Fox assigned to it.
    -all Pulse Rifles belong to Michael Biehn :)
    -Anything Ripley in Alien* is Sigourney Weaver
    -anything with "Rose" and "Titanic" belongs to Kate Winslett
    etc..


    I will see if I can find more connections, but in the meantime, feel free to add celebrities to your listings. The field for entering the name will automatically display names as you type. If you do jot find a name, just add it. And yes, we will have the same feature for movie titles too.

    Would you be interested in an extra section for helmets?

    Regarding the search for what is new:

    Instead of selecting the check boxes in front of the categories and types and then clicking SEARCH, you can simply click on the category or type (the actual text) and it will show you the latest items for just that section.

    Can you add more than one person to the 'celebrity' section? What if more than one person uses the item?

    If more than one person uses the prop, you will need to chose ONE name to add. You can add the other names in the description of the item which are also searchable.

    the movie menus now have "auto-complete": Start typing the name of the movie and it will give you options.
    When adding items, please make sure to select the actual movie from the list and do not use your own variation of the title in order to avoid creating duplicate entries.
    Same thing with the add celebrity menu: Select "Robert Downey Jr." and do not create a "Robert Doney Jr" (without the".")

    When you click on SEARCH without selecting anything, no movie or check boxes, it will show you all the latest items.

    If you already have a yourprops.com account, don't forget to add a link to it right here from theRPF:
    Go to your "User CP", click on "Edit your details" and under "additional information", add your yourprops.com user name.

    A neat little [​IMG] will show up right under your avatar, and link directly to your collection.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

    Thanks. :)

    news:
    a couple weeks ago, we added the "celebrity" field.
    Now, when you go to "manage your props" and click on a movie to edit, it will show the celebritiy already assigned to the individual items. (we added hundreds of names to the database for you).

    update:

    The celebrity's name in the item listing is now clickable and links to all items used by that actor or actress. (1200 names so far)

    There also is a " show all images" button which shows all the images uploaded for that item. So no more clicking thru the icons.

    Are you using a safe password?

    unsafe passwords are: your username, your nickname on a prop forum or ebay, or character or object names like Darth Vader or NCC-1701A or any word found in a dictionary.

    A safe password should contain both upper and lower case letters and numbers and special characters like this example:

    H,lg!CIby...HB?!

    If this seems too hard to remember, maybe you remember this line from "Back To The Future 2":

    Hey, little girl! Can I borrow your ... Hover Board?!
    H , l g ! C I b y ... H B ?!


    Or something like this:

    Il2pah#opoYP!

    Which is "short" for:
    I love to post a huge number props on Your Props!
    ;)

    So think about changing your password to something that is easy to remember and absolutely impossible for others to guess!

    Already changed my password...

    But just for interest: What is worst case what can happen? Someone can log in with my account and can delete or add my props... I think of course it would be annoying if someone flood the page with strange stuff, loading weird pictures up or something, but anything what can be really dangerous for me or the webpage itself?

    Hi idahorandom,

    welcome abord! Looking forward to seeing your collection!

    Worst case, he can:
    -delete all your stuff or
    -pm me, asking to delete all your stuff and delete your account or
    -change your email address and password or
    -offer your stuff for sale thru another email address and make you look like a crook.

    Unsafe user passwords are not a threat to the site.

    I am not forcing anybody to use a safe password, but I think it would be a good idea.

    So far, only one account had been hacked (in 2010), and all the images replaced with, well, "inappropriate" images. But we were able to restore everything.

    Hm... Ok... Just another question...

    I have some stuff from Lord of the rings or POTC for example... There are all 3 movies and LOTR Trilogy... If I add something to the trilogy it appears in all 3 movies... But in those days I add the first stuff this option wasn't available.

    So, any chance of getting stuff used in all 3 movies from Fellowship to the Trilogy, without the "add a new prop" option?!?
