As rants go, that was pretty tepid, MartiVltori. I can understand your feelings but I hope everyone continues to feel welcome to post whatever ancient-coin-related issues/questions they want.
I think that, even if there is a solid rationale for creating subforums, there isn't really the amount of traffic here for them to work well. That leaves us with a catch-all forum, of course. Some will like that, some won't. But these things (topic themes) seem to be cyclical, in any event. There are periods where a lot of people, including enthusiastic newbies, need ID'ing and authentication done (we are happy to help, as possible), other periods where show-and-tell and research-based posts seem to take the lead. There used to be some games added in too - I think I joined CCF, years ago, in the midst of a two-hundred-plus-page-long "Guess the Emperor Revised" thread - that was a lot of fun. Anyway, that's my 2 cents. Can you please tell me if it's real?
