    From what I’ve noticed since I’ve joined , it’s about not only rarity but a story and description oh how they felt to find it.

    ive seem so many people post “ Gold Coin” and not a word about where or how they found it. I know personally I would be losing my mind in a state of shock.

    But that’s just how I perceive it.

    Banner info is posted in the help forum.

    Attention Members Updated Rules for Banner Threads

    Posts with great stories are more likely to be selected.
    If the post is one of the members first posts, it is less likely to be selected.
    Finds must look good in the banner

    I Don't do all the Banners But
    besides the above , I Like "Rare to the Banner Finds"
    not necessarily "Rare according to the Books"

    Books can be wrong.

    & YES Your Banner Nominations Do Count.
    But I Personally don't count the word "Banner" in a Post
    only the ones in Reports.

    Also the find must be found by TNet individual YOU.
    Making matters worst, is nominating your own find for the banner.

    For all Future Banner Submissions

    ""willingness to share information " will be added to the criteria.

    This does not mean members need to I.d. their hunting Spot.

    This means if questions on the Object ,
    including but not limited to extra photos of the object etc. are ignored.

    Banner will no longer be considered.

    Banner Recipients should show that much Appreciation to those who voted.
    and not be Hit & run Members

    new rule addition

    Banners will not be considered if member does not give a variety of
    posses of the Find in question
    , preferably but not limited to When it is originally Found.

    We like Insitu and / or at least plenty of Identifiabley cleaned poses
    so each Banner pic can look unique from what else is up there.
    if your like me & don't do insitu that is fine.
    we also prefer pics of all the days finds.

    no body goes out , finds a banner coin on the first dig and goes home.

    if you do, I want your luck

    Seriously, We want entertaining Posts to make banner !

    Take us with you on your Hunt.... at least in Spirit
    This is Banner we are talking about.

    Since seeing several Requests We are going back to the Old Way &

    Since Members seem to mainly Vote for posts in Today's Finds .
    Posts in Other Forums like Beach & Shallow Water, shipwrecks,
    North American Indian Artifacts, gold prospecting , bottles etc. do Not require the Same numbers of votes. and may be bannered just by Moderator prerogative. to remind you they are there.

    And as Marc would say; "Shake things up a Little"

    If you receive a Banner & remove your pictures after.
    your banner & right to future Banners will be Removed !

    If You post something & Do Not wish to be considered for Banner
    Say so in your opening Post, Or PM Me & tell me to Ignore banner votes on your Find.

    It saves Both of us Time, & Prevents Confusion & hard feelings.

    Guess I should have posted mine from Monday cause the guys in New Contest thread thought it was Civil War era or maybe even prehistoric
    But there was no good story to go with it.
    Still, if Robert E. Lee buried his boots in a lead box and they were uncovered, I would think that would make Banner even if the finder posted pics and he wrote "Looky what I found cause I lost my lighter in my yard and was usng my detector to look for it."
    Terry Soloman and trdking like this.

    One thing Everyone should Realize.

    a Member Complaining He didn't get Banner,
    Would Disqualify Himself, Even if he was Close

    Like Jeff and Treasure Hunter said. Banners have to be something really cool. I just love seeing all the stuff others find. Now Crusader seems to do best, he is on the other side of the pond and finds some really cool stuff. It's amazing over this side, we still occasionally get a way out of place Roman coin or Byzantine coin or some such thing, probably from long lost coin collections.

    Now....must go dig something. This was the week of forged 18th century iron junk and shredded aluminum. Sometimes you get the gold mine, sometimes not.
