There's no denying that Zistle is a powerful card tracking tool, and I sincerely hope they straighten out their legal woes and get back on track. The "winner" of the poll was the good, old fashioned spreadsheet which has become an increasingly attractive option to me. With a spreadsheet, or any self-maintained database, the collector is in charge of the input, the data fields and the integrity of the data. With Zistle, I'm reliant on an administrator approving my suggested edits and as I've seen recently those edits could take months or be completely ignored altogether.
Not surprising to me, not one person responded that they use the Beckett database to track his/her collections.
For the short-term, I'm going to stick with Zistle. For the long-term, I'm going to start laying out a spreadsheet format with the goal of eventually migrating my collection tracking away from a third-party provider. This is serious stuff.
Thanks to everyone who commented and voted in this little poll!
