Another Ooga-Mooga improvement for Trader accounts — now it’s even easier to sell your mugs! Mugs for Sale isn’t just for your eBay auctions — now you can also put a “Price for Sale” on any of your mugs, and they’ll appear in Mugs for Sale. Your mug will be listed with the price you want for it, along with instructions to send you a Personal Message to make arrangements to purchase it.

This is available to all Trader accounts, at no extra charge. The discount on new Trader accounts (first six months at the price of a Standard account) will be ending in the next few weeks — so if you’ve been thinking about signing up, now’s a great time!

Another new feature for Ooga-Mooga — now collections can be grouped by using tags! This feature is available for Trader accounts only, so if you’ve been on the fence about getting a subscription (or upgrading your subscription), this is one more way that Trader accounts rock.

To group your mugs, simply go into the “Edit” page for each mug, and type your tags, separated by commas. There is no set list of tags — the beauty of this is that you can group your mugs the way you want to. You might want to have a group for all of your skull mugs, or for your mugs from a favorite location, or for the mugs you’ve got in storage. Anything goes.

As an example, you can take a look at my collection:

So far, I’ve got a few groups — vintage mugs, mugs that I received as gifts, mugs that are souvenirs from places I’ve visited, my favorite mugs, and mugs I’ve actually imbibed from myself.

Have fun with it!

Ooga-Mooga’s latest new feature: Drink Matcher!

Ooga-Mooga’s always been able to tell you the right size drink for a mug, but now you can tell Ooga-Mooga the size of the drink you want to make, and it will look through your collection to tell you which of your mugs will fit best. Look for Drink Matcher under My Collection on the right sidebar.
