    Banner requirements??

    Have the banner requirements been lowered? Common finds are getting up there now. It's made the banner useless.

    Seems like it somewhat.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    I was thinking the same thing. The banner used to have once in a lifetime finds. It's not like that anymore and it's disappoining. The good stuff will still make it but so will the common stuff. I guess it's who you know. Keep your fingers crossed it gets better. DK

    Requirements have not changed. The only change is that it used to be that only Jeff put the banner nominated items up there. Now there are a couple new folks doing it also. So you have seen things going up more often.

    Looking at the Banner right now I'm not sure what I'd view as common. If those items are common to you then I'd offer a hearty Congrats on your doing so well.

    Sorry, Im not seeing any "common" finds there.......... Every one I see there is worthy of being on the banner.....




    HERE IS THE THING ABOUT RIGHTS, THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE VOTED ON, THAT IS WHY THEY CALL THEM RIGHTS!

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." --Samuel Adams

    MY LIBERTY AND FREEDOMS ARE NOT YOURS TO GIVE OR TAKE!.......THEY DIDN'T MAKE US FREE, WE WERE BORN FREE, AS LONG AS WE HAVE THE 2ND AMENDMENT WE WILL REMAIN FREE!

    While we don't have any firm criteria, we follow these general guidelines...



    • Finds must be significant, and plausible.
    • Finds / posts must be RECENT.
    • Images must be hosted on the TreasureNet server.
    • 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.
    • It helps if 20 members don't have you on ignore!
    • Finds must look good in the banner.


    Everything you see on the banner was nominated for banner. New Adm had added a few up there, but they were based on the amount of nominated reports we received. This is nominated reports, not typing in a reply stating "banner". There can be 15 replies stating "banner find", but if we receive no report, well it won't make it. Also, it don't help one bit if an individual nominates his own find, then gripes in their posts why their find is not banner worthy. The find has to be found by YOU the TNet member, not the spouse/child/neighbor/best friend.

    I haven't seen anything "Common" on the Banner in like....never. Where they all would be finds of the year or even a lifetime!

    Actually I don't think that's quite right, the banner was determined by voting, or at least that's what Jeff had always advocated.

    Yeah I guess after looking at each banner find individually they deserve to be there, the rate of them going up just seems a bit faster. Folks have been getting some great finds.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    This is also not correct, some banners were almost instant, and could not have got many votes, before it made the banner. How many banner finds has there been since the take over...a lot, it never used to go anywere near as fast as it does now. No disrespect but I can see a common find now on the banner, and not rare.

    As far as me doing the Banner,
    I wait on items earning it by large numbers of reports,
    rarity both book wise & to the banner.
    and quality of photos, and story added.

    FYI as RR said if you nominate your own,
    I disqualify it.

    "I want the Banner" Dosn't work

    So what about the finds on the banner now that are not rare, or are you saying, they have to have one of the critia, or more

    Well out of those three, the Trajan Denarius doesn't have two of them...not Rare(to Treasure Net or Book Value) and there was no story in the post. I don't meen this to be disrespectfull to the poster, but The banner has to be there for a purpose, there are a couple of my banner finds that would not be classed as rare either, but I always try and do a story behind the find. I think the determination for making the banner needs a little bit of adjusting.

    Every find there deserves to be there in my personal opinion......There isnt a find on the banner right now that wouldnt be considered a find of a life time by most members here if they were the one who found it.......

    Yes, you are correct. It was my assumption that folks understood that banner nominations (votes) would have had to come in. I have never seen an instance of anyone placing an item on the Banner based on their own feelings. Votes always have come in prior to an item being added.

    The point that I was trying to make is that with some new folks on that are physically adding items to the Banner that they are being added when the votes start coming in, not necessarily when a certain number of votes is hit or what not. This has added an element of inconsistency in the timing of additions and perhaps some may have been added prematurely, however, I feel that the items up there deserve to be.

    Exactly ! it is never Appropriate to suggest any bannered Item does not deserve to be there.
    Including your Own SS yes SS Has told be his own didn't deserve it

    Still Not cool imo

    unless of course the person scammed us & wants to come clean under the full Knowledge,
    banning may follow

    Oh brother. I see one legitimate reason in those rules to have a find "honored" with something like a banner designation. The rest are moderation requirement that shouldn't be considered (or at least not shared publicly). Those rules cheapened the banner for me even more.

    If a picture is poor, ask for another.

    If 20 people have me on ignore, I know I'm being an honest member of TNET. Some folks just can't handle truth and honest opinions especially when it's written. Generally, if you disagree, then you're labeled as "negative" and placed on ignore. It actually should be the OTHER WAY, where if you have 20 people on something as silly as "ignore", then you should be dismissed as too sensitive to participate in discussions.

    What would a story mean to a PICTURE on the banner? It beeped, I dug, I said "wow" and called my friends over to look! That's all the story it really needs. A great find, is a great find.

    Exactly ! it is never Appropriate to suggest any bannered Item does not deserve to be there.
    I'd like to ask why?

    If the rules were clear, there'd be no reason to make that statement.

    For those saying all finds up there are deserving, I am going to ask what makes a couple of the finds deserving.

    1829 Bust Dime - It's not a particularly valuable coin and it has been scratched to heck. So now $10 coins make the banner? There is even a post in that thread asking how this common coin even made the banner and asked why people were voting for it.

    1739 King George - Sure, it's in nice condition. But there is nothing special about this coin either. This is the perfect example of a pretty picture making a common find a banner find. You might as well start putting up nice condition 1852 large cents as well if this coin can make it.

    This site has too many people voting banner that have never made great finds, so any time they see anything old they shout out "BANNER!"

    Now all of the other finds up there are deserving and should be up there.
