I am slowly growing into it, thanks. Compared to colnect and others, I find it easy and professional at the same time. The solution with avoiding catalogue numbers sounds like the only way to go for the future, when catalogues go out of business in a decade or so. But let me ask: before I enter my whole collection into your database, the big question is how long you will be around. What happens if you have a stroke tomorrow? Pardon my forwardness...

Your site is really impressive, because it is professional and has a high standard of research. It is sort of no-frills, and I like that. Is there a tutorial out there somewhere? I just started, and some things are hard to figure out.

Hi - I stumbled onto this page today and joined. The site popped up in Google as I was searching for info related to a series of stamps from Slovenia, the ChainBreakers. I noticed that the images are a "filler" or so it seems. I have scans I could contribute. I could not see a way to update them. Can you point in in the direction of how that is done? Thanks,Frank (Grandpakewl)

I know all about "good ideas at the time." I've had a number of wild ones over the years which were remarkable for being good only at the time. I noticed that the associated wiki requires a separate log in, but doesn't provide for new members. I hesitated to change the watermark data on the Dominican Republic stamps. It seemed like poor netiquette at this point. DR has never been an area of collection for me, but I do note that watermarks were rare for this country. There a few things that can happen with denominations on stamps. Some, like the Chinese stamps, don't have any at all. A few have letters like the "A" stamps of the US, or the 1st class stamps of the UK. A few early Canadian stamps show denominations in two different currencies. Looks like the Wikipedia habit of 4 tildes doesn't work here. ;-)

Hi, I just discovered this site, and find it very interesting. I may not agree with all your editorial decisions, but that's not so important. I tried a couple of edits, but found the process complicated. I tried something simple: filling in missing face values. The four 1949 Chinese stamps were printed without face values, so I moved to Dominican Republic where two stamps were missing values that were easily found. I figured out that I had to add the "c" to the value for it to work then had to figure out the difference between "Save" (which didn't work) and "Save as new" (which would leave the impression that I wanted to add a whole new stamp). Then I noticed that the watermark data was wrong. I realize that you have worked on this for years, and only recently made it public. What is easy and habitual after years of use can seem anything but for a newcomer. ~~~~
