Can I suggest that you post up some of the Cinderella stamps that you collect and appreciate. Lead by example. It is quiet here because people are reluctant for some inescapable reason.

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 don't see any problems with the forum set-up. There is a place for Discworld stamps, a place for revenues, a place for whatever you wish to post. There has to be Forums and sub-forums and scrolling through a few topics is not that difficult in my humble opinion.
Sorry for my absence this year, it has been a very tough time since last November with family and health issues and now I have another major problem along with millions of others......Photobucket. This is a nightmare. Being held to ransom is not a nice feeling and has destroyed the look of many a forum of late. My apologies to this forum comes with the hope that some day I can replace the images that are lost.
But it will take time.

Or have a raffle of donated stamps.

Recent conversations with other members have caused me to re-read this thread in a different light.


Just out of interest, LOTSA, as you have brought it up and must have altready given it some thought, what do you consider to be a fair membership charge?

And would you be happy to run the raffle and organise donations of stamps?


Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.

There are many 'free' clubs for stamps online and on social media, I do not think charging for membership here will work.

Perhaps charge members to sell their stamps here instead. Most of the recent posts and many of the new members seem to stem from the desire to sell their collections?
