Any time something new is released it needs to be tested and tweaked and then released to the public. As the public uses it and submits feedback things get tweaked some more to meet the publics demand/desires. Thousands of people have logged in to log their cards. Some without issues and some with. Customer service is probably swamped with emails right now and just like your electric company when the power goes out - You're gonna sit on hold until they can get to you. By your cards being wiped - that tells me they are working to resolve the issue. They are not going to go "OMG we got an email from Patrick lets get to work on it!"

This registry is an updated version of the last registry that has been made compatible with today's version of windows and that took damn near 3 years?

They scrapped the Registry 3 or 4 years ago or 6 years ago as I have heard and thanks to Mark taking it under his wing he has listened to the concerns of the people who pay to have cards graded.

The Jordan PSA 10 has trumped the Jordan BGS 9.5. The going price for a Jordan PSA 10 is around 10k versus a Jordan BGS 9.5 going from 3k-6k this is mainly a result of the registry. I prefer Beckett over the rest of the other guys but the registry is important when it comes time to dump things you no longer want, so the "vain collectors" can battle it out. A registry also helps showcase your collection to everyone whether it being vain or not it is a big plus for the collectors/hoarders in the hobby like myself. A registry has far more advantages than disadvantages. I've stuck it out with BGS this long and I'm sure I will continue to stick it out but the registry has been an issue that should've been addressed long ago..
