Is it normally so quiet on this forum?

Has anyone bought or found anything interesting or been to any shows recently?

What do you all do when you're not being stamp collectors?  Have you got other interests you could discuss here?

I think many of us are split over Facebook, Twitter and other social sites so it can become quiet here.

Any suggestions welcome! 

It didn't used to be like this there were various threads that were kept busy - but I think that may have been in the early days when many of the members had a common interest in discworld cinderella.  Now the membership is more fragmented.

All I can say is thank you to the regulars who keep posting up new material and do their best to keep it interesting.  Thanks Steve!
Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.

As it is summer many of us also have family and social commitments that keep us away from being online and (for me anyway) away from my hobby.  I seem to spend more time on my collection during the winter months when I am more inclined to be staying indoors.

As for suggestions, why not have specific forums set up for different collecting interests?  So a separate forum for Discworld stamps, another for Revenues, etc?  Rather than bundling every post or thread in to one big 'Cinderella stamps' forum. That way you would quickly be able to see what collectors were interested in without having to go through lots of posts about things you are less interested in. 

What happened to this year's forum stamp?  That usually creates a bit of interest.

I'm not very good at advice, might I offer you some sarcasm instead?

Great suggestions - thoughts anyone?

The Forum anniversary stamps?  After having had various members order them, most of this year's (already tiny!) print run is still here and I am not inclined to spend time, energy and money on doing it again this year as the original idea was that the stamps should help raise funds to meet the costs of running the forum each year - and they end up losing us money instead!  

At least those people who have loyally and consistently supported the fundraiser in the past will know they now have a rare series of stamps in ther collections.

MORE suggestions please!!!




I began this forum as a place to discuss and share ALL cinderella stamps. It is my first forum and is not perfect BUT I will endeavour to make it the best available.

Any positive help appreciated!

I am pleased to see the anniversary stamps have been terminated.

Not everyone enjoys voting for their favourite design only to find some other drivel has won instead. Then to be asked to buy said drivel just rubs salt into wounds. None of my favourites has ever won.

If you want to raise funds for operating the forum then try charging for membership.  

Or have a raffle of donated stamps.
