    Hello everyone,
    I’m a total newb to the stacking game and this place seems like a friendly way to get started. I’ve only owned silver for a little over 4 days now and already I have enjoyed learning all there is to know about the stuff. And man is it addictive. I’ve been trawling eBay and the Ainslie for hours and hours at a time.

    I am getting into precious metals because of the whole banking royal commission and my general distrust of the financial sector. Also with the cash rate so low my savings account is earning me piss all.

    Hope to be stacking for years to come.

    I have 2 questions.

    1. What does Buzz mean?
    2. How many coins are in a Kookaburra roll?

    Thanks all.

    Welcome Stackmans. It is nice to see another fellow Brisbanite on Silverstackers. Maybe we should do a face to face trade one day and meet over a coffee?

    Cheers

    Welcome Stackmans!

    I’m also a newbie from Brisbane, only been stacking for about 2 weeks now so I know exactly how you feel! Although I’m more into stacking purely for weight and as an alternate to having my money sitting in a bank account... I can actually hold the silver I own. For me, bars are the way to go.

    If you or any other Brisbane based Silverstackers are interested in face to face trades or coffee like Miksture suggested, count me in too!

    It is always cool to meet up with a few others of similar interest. Brisbane has been pretty quiet for meetups in recent years. Maybe I should find a quiet coffee shop or something and do a Sunday morning meetup?

    By the way there is a part of the forum for meetups. I will move the conversation over there.

    Thanks for the warm welcome fellas. Another stupid newbie question for you. How do I private message another member. Is it the same as the "start a conversation" option?

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers bud,
    I just wanted to make sure before I go blasting location detail and such across a public form.
