Iíd have to check up on Javascript and such, but you should be able to set up the images so that you can flick through them by something like a "next" and "previous" link.

Well, I have a rather large database of all of the card text, etc. I was thinking of writing a little script to autogenerate an html page for each image, along with the appropriate previous/next links and card information. Javascript would be good, but I think if thereís more text and pages on the site vs. a big set of pictures it will be likely to stay hosted. Most free hosting companies get cranky about large repositories.

Itís amazing how lazy people can be!

Kralik already got all images and put them organized in one place and some people want him to find a way and teach them to get those images to their computer for their use with the names they want! Shocked Incredible!!

Big question here:
If Cobra Cards started back up, how many people would buy from them?
Note: there would be new management, meaning that it would restock more often but would only sell LotR TCG cards. Please reply with a yes or no so I can get a feel for if there is still a market. Also, put down how much per month you would plan to spend. I will check about once a week.
Note: this event would probably not take place until mid-summer, around June.

The fact is, he has the technical expertise to do something like that. I donít. You donít have to be rude and call me lazy, the fact simply is that I would have no clue how to do it, otherwise, Iíd be happy to do it by myself.

Its amazing how rude people can be!

Bear in mind that though you guys maybe be computer geniuses, not everyone is. I know enough to enable to to troubleshoot problems with computer and do basic (note, VERY basic) software programming, but I know almost nothing about the internet and networking.

Maybe.

I canít say how much I would spend, it would totally depend on the pricing.
I donít and wonít pay retail rates for anything. All of the stuff listed on ebay from hillswholesale, thunderbolt, and wildthingsgames are a good example.

Private sellers, singles sales, and lot sales are the way to go. Can cobra cards compete with them without inflating their pricing or buying them out to monopolize the product availability? Eh?

CobraCards would not be selling any goods at retail prices. The only product (at least to begin with) that we would be offering is singles, at prices comparable and perhaps a little less than what they were under Mr. Braceís management.

As a guide, the average common would range from 5-15 cents, uncommon at 10-50 cents, and rare from 50 cents to 2 dollars, depending on the set. Also, while we would have more cards in stock than before, we would still be very scanty on certain sets whose booster boxes sell upward of 140 dollars. Shocked

Iím glad to see an answer so quickly, as it seems to imply that the forums, and consequently the site, are still active.

Also to note, these questions are all rhetorical. For now Conor Brace still has complete control over the website, forums, and Cobra Cards entity, with no concrete or pending contract suggesting otherwise.

with prices and conditions as good as they were...most certainly I would order....problem is that I have nearly completed mu collection, so the frequency of ordering can be a problem. For certain decks I would buy cards!

Whoa. If you can beat Conorís old prices, Iíd definitely buy. Heck, if you were a little more over Conorís old prices, Iíd still probably buy. Although how anyone can afford to beat his prices is beyond me.
