    Also lurking. I don't like the new format but then I still believe in kero fridges. I am the problem and not the site. Besides that, neither metal is exciting at the moment. I am buying and holding but will dump the lot when there is a modicum of improvement.

    Me too, check in for a look now and then but not really getting into the discussions for whatever reason, the new platform feels a bit alien.

    Yeah I got onto cryptos through this site back in 2013, There was a lot of posting about it then to with the price rise at the time
    I suppose similar sort of people are attracted to both for the hedging against the system aspect. a lot of silver people are diversifying into BTC as well now. as you can see in some trade threads.
    I still leave the tab open all day and hit new posts often, but don't post as much just lurk. It's really the same threads coming up in cycles untill something big happens with PM's I suppose

    Also this site can be difficult to use, the quotes and so on aren't as straight forward


    Wow Sammy, council, corruption, no drinking while distilling, I would like to read the book

    the quoting functionality can be quite handy when you get use to. select, right click and hit reply to quote just a part of a post for instance.

    Ahhhhhhhhh. see I was hitting quote then going to bottom to answer. Thanks

    now i see the insert quotes part, I had done it once before, makes it easier for multiple quotes i guess.

    Every time I go to start a book and arrange the babes in chronological order, I get a hard on and have to stop.

    I arrived, signed on, still don't like the interface but that's a function of age rather than design. Saw the same, same, same, same, and thought how things look when revised and reviewed, and seen through fresh eyes.

    I was at the point of disappearing but a few favourite posters stirred the grey matter as usual, so I thought I'd stick around and annoy the various people I annoy.

    Besides there are some bargains still!

    without the price charts it just doesn't feel like a bullion forum anymore, along with 4 ads on the front page, it just appears a little distracting and maybe desperate?
    There's a large space on the right hand side of the front page, why not place price charts there?

    The old chart was ok but charts from goldprice.org are interactive and are easy to drop in anywhere you want.
    You can select any country currency, any size, any date range all in the one module.
    if you want to see them in action I have gold/silver modules at the bottom of my front page.. http://www.scrapforum.com.au/


    get 'em here.. https://goldprice.org/gold-price-charts.html

    Glad you didn't go! This forum would be less interesting without you here.

    You also have to stick around to see if you have to go buy a book.

    Not sure why it keeps telling me I cannot post when I hit Post Reply, so had to reply to the previous post then edit it to get this far.

    Sorry .. still feeling a bit rusty and disoriented as I haven't played with the site much since it moved across.

    So also feeling like a bit of a lurker here - hopefully that will change as I get more comfortable with the new forum
