Is there a place I can create a want list online?


Two of the easiest.
Ebbay describe the stamp required, or the set, or the collection.
Then "save that search" and you will be notified when they come for sale.

Auction
Find a local or desired stamp auctioneer, and indicate your collecting interests.

Prior to auction, all your appropriate results are there for browsing

I asked a similar question about want lists some time ago. My opinions are mixed.

SAN provides saved searches. eBay, Hip, SAN have email alerts. My opinion is use them. They mostly work. In short, revealing the intentions to a dealer on stamps you want if they are particularly uncommon, will probably not be a cost benefit to you, but may help you locate them. If you saw the item auctioned historically you can track items down back through the house as well, sometimes with success, and open a dialog with them fostering a deal where the original owner is anonymous.

I use Google Docs to track many things and have a Sheet for my stamp collection and my cover collection. Very versatile and customizable. Neat to know I have 82.8% of my volume I completed. Here's a screenshot of the first 13 rows. I am very much and integrator / synthesizer of information and so have used many sources to create this and as a consequence have learned a great deal about the material. Very handy to have in my pocket at bourses and auctions. Can edit this on a large display as well. I also track stamps I've set aside for my daughters collections. Here's a screenshot:

Any one else use a spreadsheet?

This is what you get with an Image based Inventory

Search time 500,000 stamps, intial circa 15 seconds, secondry search 2 seconds.
Want list: simply add Text string "wanted"
Can carry to auctions, clubs.
Trivial manual input, scan plus Cat Num, year, Thematic? value variety if any

An image is worth 1000 words......

I use StampManage because I own it and runs on my local system. Photobucket was free....the problem is that free online sites can go away.

StampMamage can create output that can reside online.

What I have is less important that what I'm missing, to me. I just use Excel to track what I need, with country, year, and catalog number. Very satisfying to see the list shrink and the albums grow.

stispidey, almost anything that works on a laptop works on a chromebook. You are like most of us - no idea about computers.
Tell us about yourself. Do you have children, or better yet, grandchildren? If you have any teenagers in the neighborhood, they might be able to help you
Also, a local stampclub can be of great help!

One thing I finally grew out of was the small boy's love of making lists, which had grown into the young man's love of making lists of breathtaking complexity. Only took me fifty years. These days, I might put a tick in a catalogue or scribble the odd missing item in a piece of paper. Of course, living's mainly wasting time, as Townes van Zandt sang, so I shouldn't like to criticise anyone else's chosen time-spender.
