Welcome!

Some people find posting a new topic a bit confusing so here’s a very simple guide.

At the top of the forum are the last 20 topics that have been posted or responded to. You need to scroll down and when you do you’ll see there are a list of sub forums. This is where topics are organised into different areas so everyone can find things more easily.

If you want to post a topic click on the appropriate section i.e. if you want to have an identification for an artefact or coin go to the Identification section, or if you want to say hello when you join then go to the introduce Yourself section instead.

In the top left is a New topic button. Press it. hint - the pictures enlarge if you click on them :thumbsup:

Write your message

If you want to add photos you need to scroll down below the text box where you wrote your message. Click on the Attachments button then press the Add files button and choose and add photos.

You just go into one of the sub sections and press the button to start a new topic. We’ll take note of your frustration though and consider reducing the recent topics list down a bit so the sub forums are more obvious, especially for phone users :thumbsup:
