Ok, I have put this topic back into the main forums again. I had removed it until I thought about things, good or bad, Here are my thoughts.....
If you introduce yourself, people may be more forthcoming with answers. You are correct, there is no law set out that you must do so, however I would think it would the prudent thing to do.
You post an out of the blue, request for help, no photos (yes our system of posting photos is a bit wonky, but easy enough) not asking for help in posting photos. Just asking us to go find it on another forum.
I tried to chase down the topic in the forum you directed us to in your initial post. However, I have never heard of the above forum. Am I expected to do a google search to find the forum, then search said forum to look at photos you posted there?? Really?? Are you serious.
I am the Mod in this section and if you have a problem with a posted reply, why not report the post so the Mod can deal with it. Sometimes I miss things, as in this case. I find it unacceptable for any member to tell another to **** ***. I do take offence at your insinuation that 'we' the moderating team tolerate this type of behavior.
If you care to reply to this post great. If you need help posting photos, drop me a line, I will help you out. We are not a bunch of cads here at CMF, many are quite knowledgeable in our respective fields of study and collecting.
