What are Collections?

Collections allow us to collect content on the site and organize them into personal folders and collection sets. Each collection can contain any combination of content type from Projects to Banners posted by any member. It's essentially super favorites with ability to publish them for the community to explore!

How to CREATE new collection folders and sets

When logged in, you can access your collection management by clicking "My Collections" in the top right of most pages.

Click the appropriate icon to create a new folder or collection set.

You can rename folders and collections

Drag and drop to move folders or collection sets
How to ADD items to a collection

1) From submission pages:
Drag and drop the collection icon into an open collection.

OR Right click the collection icon to add it to any collection.

2) From listing pages:
Right click the collection icon or submission image.
How to REMOVE items from a collection

Drag and drop an item outside of a collection.
How to ORDER items in a collection

You can order items in a collection. By default a collection is sorted by your personal order preference on public pages.
1) In collection management, drag and drop an item to change the order.

2) On the public page, while in "Collector Order", drag and drop to change the order.

How to EDIT the custom Icon, Description and Tags

You can add custom icon, description and tags by clicking the edit page icon below the collection.

Or by clicking "Edit Collection" on the public page.
How to SHARE Collections with community

You can change the share access at the bottom of a collection.

Collections Share statuses:
* Private: Only you can see and access. For personal organization purposes.
* Hidden: You can share a direct url to the collection.
* Public: (Must have 3 or more items in collection) Shared with community. Appears in the public collections listing and on your member page.
Collection Limits

Each member can currently create:
* Up to 50 folders / subfolders
* Up to 150 collections
* Up to 200 items per collection

Browse current public collections!

don't expect any help from PMC on this matter... I myself have zero response on exactly same issue for nearly a month now on ticket tracker. They completely give a f*...

incredibly disappointed from such approach here at pmc site. I did expected at least a lame cynic response like: "lol, if works for us, you suck..." but nope... not even a single response.

I have "lost" access to all my collections with projects like builds, maps. etc.
One can still find them under my profile, but I cannot see them in the menu when I want to add some project into them.


cca. 2 weeks ago, it fixed itself somehow, maybe browser cache reset helped, I dunno, but since then it is bugged again. On the next day I was already not able to add anymore collections to it.

It seems redundant - that everything goes into one folder. The folder has almost the same name as the box it's in. (The box: "My Collections." The folder: "Collections.") Yes, you can change the name, but their purposes are the same as well.

I came here hoping to find out how to create a second folder - at the same level (at the top of the hierarchy, like a brother folder). However, the example/directions only show how to add a folder UNDER "Collections." Does that mean it's not possible?

Is my understanding correct? There is one upper folder and there can be only one? Is the "My Collections" box going to include something else someday (future plans)? That would explain it, at least. Or am I just unable to figure out how to do it? I use a script blocker, it could be that some weird script needs to be allowed. (but everything else works as expected)

Sidenote: I do like this system. A bit awkward, but I like it. I hope to see it continued and improved upon. Would be nice if we could write a little note about each item. For example: "buggy, wait for updates" or "for Christmas time" or "haven't tried yet" or "too dark, but has great mobs". Notes like that.
Been uploading items to my collection folder and now the folder has dissapeared

I followed on how to add skins to the My Collection folder, but it's not working for me. I tried both dragging the icon to the folder and right clicking on it. I tried this yesterday and thinking that it was just because I created the account that day I tried it once more today. It's just not working.

I created a subfolder and put a set in there, resulting in it disappearing completely from my collections menu and bugging out. I want to delete it but I can't, since it still is in my profile, but it doesn't offer an option to delete it from there. Please help me fix this.

I'm encountering a lot of problems. I dragged and dropped some folders/collections to reorganise them in the collections side menu, and now they've disappeared from that meny entirely. They still exist on my profile, in my private collections, but I'm unable to add any more items to them because they don't exist in the side drop-down collections menu.

There is an option for Private, Hidded or Public. To make it Public, you must have three or more items in your collection.

I get a similar error when I try to edit or delete collections or collection folders. The screen goes dark, as if there's some pop-up but I can't do anything about it. I have ad-block turned off for PMC so I know that's not it.

Hey! The collection don't work at all for me. Everytime I open a new page, some folders / collections aren't visible. Then it works partly. Then not anymore. Seems like a big bug?

One of my collections is saying externally that it's at 9 diamonds but if I go into the actual collection and even check who gave it diamonds, it only says 6. Not sure what's up with that.

Thanks. Last time I tried, I had put a couple of tags for different collections, and I found that they all stacked on the same collection (and exceeded the 10 cap). weird.

Btw, that new feature is awesome. It is a nice way to get know by other people, and is very rewarding. It's funny, cause I had suggested a feature that is pretty similar to this, put less complex, about a month ago, to Paril. :)

I recently made a bunch of new collections. They worked for a little while but then they vanished from my quick listings. But I know they still exist because I can still go to My Profile > Collections > Private and then they all appear. Otherwise, I only see this. Hope this can be fixed!

I'll look into and see what happened.  I'm sure I can restore them into your collection management but naturally that won't fix what caused them to vanish in the first place.  Were you working with collection management at the time or have any suspicions as to what caused them to vanish?

I'm having the same problem. Drag-and-dropped some items within the list to reorganise the drop-down menu and they up and disappeared. Happened after I renamed some items too, but I did the renaming at the same time as the re-ordering; I think the re-ordering is what causes the problem.

I'm having the same problem. I created several folders, subfolders and
private collections then changed the order of appearance. Everything
appeared fine yesterday. Today only one subfolder shows up which cannot
be opened to see the collections inside. The other subfolders and
collections are not shown. In my profile all collections are visible.
There is just no folder structure. I guess the problem is about the
subfolder structure.

At this stage, if you can just delete them, that would be great. These are the collections that messed up and now need deleting. In the end, I just remade the collections.

As for the circumstances, I can't remember too clearly. But I think I had just made a new collection (I had been making a lot in a short space of time), reloaded the page or navigated away from it and then both the "PBL" folder  I had made and all the collections inside were lost from the quick navigation area. But I don't think it was tied with any collection management issues. So my best guess is that maybe I overloaded the system?
