So will the "World Coin and Commemorative Forum" description change from "unsure of what type/country" to "sure of what type/country"?

When I scan a coin to display for help in identification it tells me it is too big so how can this be done anyway?

Leo, if you'll look to the left, you'll see a hot link to "Uploading Photos" under a red bar entitled "Tutorials". Read it first, follow the steps (try to keep your coin pix sizes to a reasonable width), and then upload. BTW when I scan a coin on my $10 scanner, I set the scan size to 2x2 for best results.

Halfwitty, even my $10 Epson scanner gives me various settings to use, and as I indicated to Leo, the 2x2 setting works best for coins. I do have to use the "expert" tab, which simply gives me more choices, but once you find a setting that works for you, scanning coins will become almost automatic for you. (I've also had excellent luck with Photobucket as the site to save pix on for "transporting" here).

Maybe a new icon to the left of unID'ed coins (like ?) and something like a √ after they've been ID'ed would help, whether they were moved or left in the same thread. A "?" next to a multiple-coin posting would let us know that one or more coins were still unID'ed, at least.

Some of you, like SAP, know me from the Ancients board. If I know a coin belongs on the Ancients board but am needing help to ID the coin, should it be posted here first. Or, because I know it belongs on the Ancients board, should I just post it there to begin with.

This makes no difference to me, except that people on the various boards need to be informed to post all unidentified coins here if that is the case.

If you know it belongs in a certain forum, just post it there from the start.

Can you do like this?
Once a coin is identified, let the thread be shifted. But the title shall remain here with a link to the same title in the new forum. Only the title is duplicated, one of them remains here and all the rest goes to the new forum.

I'm not sure this will work for all posts. What I mean is that when you have something that is unidentified, you may have numerous people who have some input on what you have. This just happened to me. I had an old Roman coin to identify, and the community here was able to identify the obverse, but no one had identified the reverse. So now I have a Roman coin, still not fully identified, in a different forum. In my opinion, this should be optional, and up to the original poster to move their topic to the appropriate forum. Thank you for letting me express my opinion. :)

To be honest, that doesn't make sense. If we now know it's a Roman coin, the best place for it is absolutely the Roman forum. That's where the Roman experts hang out.

I would have preferred that my world coin be left in the world coin forum to be discussed and possibly identified. I have never visited this part of the forum until my thread was moved here.
