    Welcome to coin talk. I like the coins you have been posting...rapidly.
    I have not commented in your threads though as you are flooding the board. What this means is that you are posting so many different threads that you are kicking a bunch of other folks, with well thought out, posts that they worked hard on to the doldrums of the second page where they slip into obscurity.
    Please have some etiquette and don't post more than 1-2 threads per day.
    I would recommend. Sit back, comment on others posts and make friends.
    Edit: and maybe take some time doing research and write ups on your coins instead of just posting random ish. If I wanted to look at random coins I would just browse ac search. That is not sexy Domitia. That is sexy Venus.

    Thank you Ryro form Utah, we are not so far away since I am in Arizona. Did try to find a way to display the humble collection I have been building, didn't know there was a unwritten 'etiquette' about numbers of posts daily. Just see finally some time in my busy live to enjoy having a chat with fellow collectors and sharing some recent coins which I added to the collection.

    Like the smile or 'grin' on Domitia's face, like the detailing of the reversed site of mine

    It is not some unwritten etiquette. It is in numerous places on the site. Maybe look around for site etiquette before blasting away.
    I am not trying to tell you to not enjoy your sharing and learning about your new hobby, just saying to please let others do the same. You have nearly have of the first page.

    @Mat my friend, I did not realize you had one of these. A very expressive portrait. One of these is on my list.

    Thanks, I'm surprised, it's been posted many times, even in my top 2020 coin thread. :)

    The board moves pretty quickly, so we try to limit our posts to one, or occasionally two, per day so we don't bump our friends' posts to page 2 before others have had a chance to enjoy them.

    Seems like dr. Google search engine functionality, once you're off from the front page your are not in the Top score category! Being new here means I'll need to adjust, without warning would I have been posting about 300 coins here (some unique in this world) :happy: I'll slow down and try to inject some on a weekly base instead.
