State Of The Data: Most Wanted & Collected Items On The ‘Ogs Sites

You probably know Discogs most Collected and Wantlisted records off by heart by now: Dark Side Of The Moon, Thriller, Sgt. Pepper’s, Rumours, etc. So what about the most Collected and Wanted items on our other collector sites, Gearogs, Comicogs, Bookogs, Filmogs and Posterogs?

We still have a long way to go before the newer ‘ogs sites have a patch on Discogs in terms of completeness of the databases, but we all have to start somewhere, and these databases are growing fast! The sites are very similar to what Discogs was like back when it was starting out, so if you wish you’d been involved with growing the Discogs database back in the early days, get a second shot with with the younger ‘ogs sites!

Gearogs

Gearogs was the first collector’s site next to Discogs that was launched for music and audio gear. Database growth has been strong, with almost 15000 unique pieces of gear now cataloged in the database. As we recently noted when celebrating 1 year of the Gearogs Marketplace, the highest concentration of gear in the Gearogs database was previously turntables, but was overtaken in 2017 by speakers and synths.

Yamaha is the most cataloged gear maker, with nearly 700 types of gear spanning the full spectrum of audio gear in the database. That includes mixing desks, amps, samplers, synths, CD players, receivers, drum machines, effect, sequencers and a tonne more. Pioneer and Korg are a fairly close second and third, respectively with a less broad range of gear, but impressive nonetheless.

Bookogs

Bookogs is our biggest database so far with over 46,000 books cataloged, and thousands of books listed for sale in the marketplace. While the most common language of books in the database is English, it makes up for less than 50% of the books, with Russian, German, French and Polish also being well-represented. Finnish is the most obscure language on Bookogs, but with over 500 books cataloged, it’s not doing badly. While the Bookogs database also caters for magazines, paperback and hardback books are currently outperforming magazines by 6 to 1. Fiction and Music books are neck and neck for the most cataloged genre; there’s less than 50 books in it, so if you feel strongly one way or another, submitting your books could potentially turn the tables.

Stephen King is the author with the most books in the database. He’s followed by plenty of literary heavy-weights, including Terry PratchettNikolai Gogol, Agatha ChristieTolstoyPhilip K. DickVladimir MayakovskyShakespeareDean Koontz and Martin Heidegger.

Filmogs

Filmogs is the second biggest database with over 20,000 film releases cataloged. DVD is king here, accounting for over 70% of the releases cataloged. The weirdest format we’ve come across and only learned about since stumbling upon it in Filmogs is CED, which is basically a vinyl record for film.

Besides tracking your Collection and Wantlist on Filmogs, you can also keep track of films you’ve seen. Stanley Kubrick is a clear fan favorite here, with 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, and The Shining all among the most watched films. There’s a clear affinity for science fiction among the Filmogs community, with the other most watched films being Alien, The Matrix, Blade Runner and Star Wars.
