    Yea it seems to me that half of the posts are not being marked. But I no longer have time to remind people sorry.
    Thanks Big C, contrary to a few opinions, as always I do try to help as much as possible.

    I have presented your ideas to the admins on the Moderator Board, I will let you know status as soon as I hear....

    Its not that we don't care, but there are hundreds of posts a day, very hard for us to read them all, plus we get reported posts we have to check out as well as dozens and dozens of new members each day, we check their ips and email address through several programs to weed out spammers.... take the amount of spammers that get through and multiple them by 10 if we were not doing this...

    On top of that we also have to moderate and edit the members who insist on breaking the rules with language, politics or inappropriate posts, and then some members quote what they posted which then has to be edited as well...

    If I see something that will help solve an old item, I will search out the old thread.

    I think its a great idea. I have revived two threads in particular, at least twice, yet they remain unsolved. I will have to dig them up again...

    I'm going through the archives from 2003-2012.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    If you are solving an unsolved seems fine. The problem with necro-posting is that most of the time it's just some random post that someone want's to add a smily face reply or other inane reply to someone who no longer is a member.

    Yes that is a problem. I only put replies that are important. If I am confirming what other people said, I will not post, but PM the person.

    Dredge up a post if you know what it is, not because you think someone else might.

    Ok, thank you. That's what I will do from now on. I will still reply if I have a slight idea about the object.

    First 100 pages looked at already, but I will be doing hardly any reviving for the next two weeks.

    Prospecting
    While suggestions are being made, I have a suggestion for the Please Read Before Posting Items in "What Is It?" sticky:

    - Please include the type of object or a very brief description of the unidentified piece in the the subject line (coin, rock, small metal thing, rusted artifact, possible stone tool, strange goo, small aluminum ring with tearshaped attachment, etc.)

    I know the wording could be improved, but believe you get the basic idea....

    Most recent posts already adhere to this, but the ones which don't get annoying after I've clicked on them for the umpteenth time.

    Thanks
