3.3.2009 Time for the toast
It's been 7 great years having fun with this site! Spletkomat was born on 3. 3. 2002 and since then every year a number
of registered swappers doubles. So does the number of wonderful users supporting this site by making others happy,
sending them missing stickers, making spletkomat a kind comunity for children and their parents, and finally giving donations
to help this site exist and grow. I wish everybody to make good swaps, complete their albums and find good friends here!
2.3.2009 Problems at registration
Some new swappers who wished to register in the last few days, haven't received your password by e-mail.
The reason for this is, that IP number of our mail server has been added by mistake on a black list spamhaus.org.
After intervention, this problem will be resolved in 24 hours.
We are sorry for the trouble due to the mistake we are not responsible for. We ask you to register again in a day or two.
13.10.2008 SPLETKOMAT ON NEW SERVER
Spletkomat has moved from a shared server to a new VPS (virtual private server).
Main advantages are:
- more disk capacity (15 GB)
- more monthly bandwidth (150 GB)
- own operating system
- guaranteed memory (480 MB) and dedicated CPU time
- own IP adress, administrator access, ...
8.4.2008 MASS STICKERS ENTERING
If you want to enter a range of stickers (e.g. all numbers from 1 to 255) now there is an option to help you with this.
You only have to enter the first and the last number, click the button and all numbers in that range will be
copied into a text field for stickers numbers.
4.4.2008 PRIVATE MESSAGES
Private messages at spletkomat make a lot of data transfer on a web server, so some changes were necessary.
These messages are no longer split into many pages, but are all listed on one page.
When you click a message, it will be opened in a new smaller window, where you can read or answer the message.
Users welcomed these changes the first day, but like all the previous versions, this is probabbly not the last one,
but hopefully the best untill now.
Spletkomat got a new Chat, a commercial version on a separate server, which seems to be working fine
after first few days of usage. You need to have Java installed on your computer to use this chat.

16.1.2008 RATINGS AND PROFILE
Due to numerous complaints about double ratings, from now on you can only rate once in a day for the same swapper.
Double ratings were mostly given by mistake or with an unfair purpose.
A possibility to change your name in a profile has also been abused several times. Because of this you can no longer change
this date in your profile.
15.8.2007 Golden list + some upgrades in search forms
There is a new button - Golden list in user's menu,
showing a list of users who received most thanks, appreciations, ... from other swappers.

in the forms: Swaps, I need, I have.
14.8.2007 Limited number of private messages
A number of private messages wasn't limited untill now, so some users don't delete their old messages.

and other positive statements from swappers, she's been swapping with,

Congratulations to a 7 year old Tihana and her mother who cares of the swaps!
25.6.2007 Remember me
You don't need to login on spletkomat every time any more.
If you select 'Remember me' at login, your login data will be stored on your computer in a Cookie.
6.6.2007 A warning from swapper:
Cao, jos jednom! Mislim da sam naisao opet na onog dosadnjakovica Dakica......Sad se zove Stefan, ali je sada sa studenta spao na obicnog ucenika:) Ima oko 200 duplikata, isto kao i Dalibor i Dragana, pa eto da reko' da ti javim da ne bi opet slucajno nekoga zeznuo. Pozdrav iz Beograda!
Ne znam kolika je verovatnoca da to budu 2 razlicita Dakica iz Novog Sada sa slicnim duplikatima i da pocne skupljati nakon 2 prevare Dalibora tj. Dragane Dakic (Novi Sad ima 300.000) stanovnika. Ni ja ne mogu da tvrdim 100 %, ali mislim da je uzeo adresu od nekog prijatelja i rodjaka i ocekuje da mu tamo dolazi posta, a naravno da ih ne vrati nazad.
Problem je u tome sto on ceka da dobije jedno 5-6 ponuda za razmenu i onda odgovori i svima zakaze razmenu u toku jednog dana (posto kao ima 200 duplikata), ljudi posalju svoje slicice u sledeca 2 dana, a on naravno svoje ne salje. I dok stigne reakcija od nekog prevarenog (nakon 7 dana) dotle je vec kasno.
Ajd sto je mene malo matorijeg izradio jednom, ali mrzim to sto izradjuje malu decu, tako da sam ga bas uzeo na zub.
Kad bi bar postojao neki sistem da se upozori na nekog sumnjivog, ne znam , nisam pametan.
A evo i sad sam proverio, Dakicu je falila slicica broj 240, kao i Dragani, ali i takodje i Stefanu fali broj 240. Tako da mislim da je sve to ipak ista osoba. Sad ceka par dana da mu se nagomilaju ponudjene razmene i onda dogovori sve u jednom danu i tako zezne ljude.
March 2007 - 5th birthday
Sticker swappers site was born in march 2002. It started with a legendary collection "Animal kingdom" in Slovenia.

8.12.2006 Stickers numbers starting with zero
Some collections have stickers whos numbers start with zero (eg. 003, 006, 057, 076 etc.).
Swappers enter these stickers different ways; some with a leading zero and some without (eg. 3, 6, 57, 76 etc.)
From today on stickers numbers are automatically converted in a form without leading zeros
and all existing records in a database have been replaced.
7.12.2006 Now you may change your e-mail
Click 'Settings' and enter your new e-mail address.
6.12.2006 New options in a 'Swaps' list
In a list of possible swaps, now you can select a country and date of last visit.
21.10.2006 New language: macedonian

13.10.2006 Spletkomat in serbian language
Since Serbia is the third in number of swappers, there is a new flag on spletkomat. Many thanks to
swapper Mr. Aleksander Stanišić for translations.
Suggestions for language improvements in all languages by experts from this area are always welcome.
For the quality of translations of the news, all responsibility is on me, editor of spletkomat.
9.10.2006 For users of spletkomat in croatian language only
Prof. Siniša Vodopija, a swapper from the island Vis in Croatia kindly read and corrected all the croatian text on this site (except the news). Thank you!
8.10.2006 A new button 'Swaps'
There is a new button 'Swaps'
in user menu. It will show you a list of swappers who need your extra stickers and have your missing stickers.
There were 58 swappers deleted from a database, who had wrong e-mail address, and last login before July 2006.
7.10.2006 Advanced private messages
Sending private messages has been improved and simplified with new advanced private messages, created by a program:
There is another new feature: now you can enter your personal description in your own language and in english.
If you can swap at least one sticker from any collection with a swapper you are creating an advanced private message for,
a program will create text for suggested swaps.
You don't have to type your post address over and over again. Now you can enter it once in 'Settings'
and attach it later with one click to new advanced messages.
Advanced message can be created using selected language, and a greeting can be added at the top of a message.
28.8.2006 A letter from Matej announces last improvement
We are glad about all the recent improvements to this site, but most of all
we are happy about the last one, which we were secretly longing for the most.
This improvement is in a new column on a list of
swappers, who need your stickers. In this column there are stickers
that these swappers offer. This way there is no more dull browsing
through swappers and looking for the best possible swaps.
Keep on this way!
27.8.2006 4 new options - because you asked for them
- To prevent e-mail abuse from spam and to keep swappers privacy, there is a new option, allowing you to hide e-mail from your profile. You can set this in 'Settings'
- A private messaging system has been incorporated, so you can send a message also to those swappers, who don't want to display their e-mail.
- From now on, you can delete opinions you added about other swappers.
- At the top of a site there is a new link 'Chat'. Come in and chat live with other swappers!
16.8.2006 E-mail messages about site renewal
All registered swappers have received an email with a new password. If you haven't received this e-mail,
it is probabbly because of a wrong e-mail address you entered during registration or
because your mailbox is full. Please check
a list of wrong e-mails
14.8.2006 The Sticker Swapper's site has been renewed
At the time of FIFA, in july 2006, there's been a huge increase of this site's usage and at the end of month
some technical changes had to be done, as to enable the site to work fast inspite of big number of swappers and stickers.
Data has been transfered from Access database into a powerfull MSSQL 2000 database
procedures for searching which were a heavyload for server have been optimized
This was also an opportunity for content improvements and redesign of the site
Some important news for all registered swappers:
The site is on a new, shorter address: www.spletkomat.com (previously www.spletkomat.com/zbirke).
Swappers, who were registered before the site renewal, received an e-mail with your new password you need for login.
Now you login with your e-mail and password (not username and password as before).
New swappers will enter their e-mail on the registration form, and then receive their password to login.
All these changes regarding login (e-mail and password) were necessary due to swappers who entered false e-mail
address during registration, and were therefore unavailable for other swappers.
Registered swappers who have not received an e-mail with a new password, have stored a false e-mail. In this case
click "Contact" at the top of this site and send a message with your data (first name, last name, old password)
and a valid e-mail address.
The stickers of swappers from all the countries are now united.
This way a selection is bigger and double registration is not needed anymore.
At searching swappers and stickers you can limit your search on a specific country, or select all.
Swappers, who were registered before of the site renewal, please check in "Settings"
your country and language.
All stickers of those swappers, who were registered on both, slovenian and croatian site with one e-mail,
are now united in one user account.
Stickers entrance is now simplified. You don't need to enter stickers one by one, but all of them at once.
In your lists of double and missing stickers you may enter up to 2000 stickers.
You can limit a search result list of swappers with which you can swap stickers, to only those
who have logged in in the last 7 or 30 days.
After login you can search for other swappers (the "Swappers" button) by first name, last name, e-mail and description.
Click swappers name in a result list to see swapper's profile.
I believe that among more than 800 registered swappers there will be some who will find some errors on a renewed site.
Please report this with a form "Contact" at the top of site.
I wish you a successful swapping and pleasant use of this site!
