    I'm not naming names but there is one particular banner find that I find confusing in many aspects as to why it is there. Value (in respect to condition), rarity (not), very new member, very small amount of posts at time of banner. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out. While we're at it, where are the guidelines for banner consideration located at now? I can't seem to find them. I thought I knew my way around this place pretty good now, I guess not.

    This is a "Treasure Hunting Site".....not a "History Hunting Site"...it is not "HistoryNet"...it is "TreasureNet". Grab your dictionary, look up "treasure". I believe you will find it defined as being something like; riches, wealth, valuable, etc. I don't think it will say; "Only historically significant items". I think you are the one who is a bit confused. Perhaps after you've looked up the dentition of treasure and spent years on end metal detecting beaches without finding a $10'000 ring you would understand the flaw in your comments.

    No need to call names SS. Like you said this is a discussion. I just lost quite a bit of respect for you. Not that it matters.

    No war intended.....just saying.....by definition treasure is treasure regardless of the item's history. If all a guy does is beach hunt and he is lucky enough to ever find a very valuable ring......"BANNER" for him due to his area of personal treasure hunting interest. You said you don't beach hunt, or specifically ring hunt, but a great many beach "treasure hunters" do.

    I did, that is where my quote come from....

    treasure is defined as "wealth or riches stored or accumulated, especially in the form of precious metals, money, jewels, or plate. often one which is considered lost or forgotten until being rediscovered."

    Here are more from more sourses...

    Noun: A quantity of precious metals, gems, or other valuable objects.


    n.
    1. Accumulated or stored wealth in the form of money, jewels, or other valuables.
    2. Valuable or precious possessions of any kind.
    3. One considered especially precious or valuable.


    a (1) : wealth (as money, jewels, or precious metals) stored up or hoarded <buried treasure> (2) : wealth of any kind or in any form : riches b : a store of money in reserve
    2: something of great worth or value; also : a person esteemed as rare or precious
    3: a collection of precious things
    Why has your reply come up as if I posted it. Oh I see you edited my post...moderater priveliges.

    Where do you live that everyone is wearing $10,000 rings? I don't know anyone that has a $10,000 ring.

    ANY TYPE OF TREASURE HUNTING THAT PUTS MONEY IN MY POCKET
    Well in my case i would never get a banner ...... The reason is i never show or tell of my find's...... I know what i find and that is all that matters to me....... In my world my find's are my own business and no one elses .... Now if i was a dealer that would be a different story...... I would post my good finds and say i found this with this brand of detector...... Then i would hope you would buy that brand of detector from me.......... But since i am not a dealer no one needs to know what i find.....

    Wow. Are people really looking that hard for something to complain about?

    I'd much rather see new thumbnails up top, as long as they are worthy, to read about. Seeing the same 15 for six months or so would be, well, a bit boring.

    Just my .02. That and 4 bucks will get you a regular coffee at Starbucks.

    Same arguement pops up ever so often here, I have seen basically this same thread on here at least 4 times over the last 6 years.........

    Banner Finds (1)
    Ok here is my thoughts on the Banner. First there seems to be no rules any more about making the Banner and maybe there wasn't before. But I do know that you use too have a good many post before you were allowed too make the Banner. Now it seems like you can make it on your first post. So now the one hit wonders that come on and post great things just to play games will make the Banner. New members have made it now, so why not them. As far as rare , valuable etc. i am all for any kind of treasure making the Banner. I believe what hasn't been said is that the diamond rings are still being lost everyday, the older ancient coins and relics are no longer being lost, that too me is the only differance between the two, but they are both treasures. Rare also comes in all differant forms, take the Tiffany saucer I found last week. I have not seen too many tiffany items dug by anyone, so too me that is a rare event. What makes it more rare is the fact that I myself which doesn't always do took the time to dig a signal that blew out my ear drums which most all of us would not have dug. I don't know what made me do it, but it did pay off. Now i do have too say is that Tiffany saucer Banner worthy I didn't think so, but I do know it was rare too dig one up. So the moral of the story is treasure comes in all forms as well the find being rare.

    While I am on a roll I have always felt that we should have a Banner just for days that some one has a heck of a day digging, but yet doesn't have that one super find too make the Banner. Yet if you took the overall quality of all the finds a person made in their days hunt the sum of them would blow many Banner finds away.

    Ok note too all above was just my thoughts and not typed too get in any fights.
