I want to thank all of you who commented on my blog about points!! You did it!! And thank you the board of the ANA Miss Kim Kiick. Thank you for listening to us. I am so happy. Quick story a kid just joined and we became friends He said you have allot of points I said well there good for you. How do you get them I said writing blogs . He said I will never get that many. I said you need them till your 18. He left. He was intimidated by my points.That's a shame that should not of happned.

The messages I sent you are respectful. They all are. I wish they would print them out. And your not blocked. If that was true I could not message you. Please get the story right. I never knocked you and your blogs I ask for information. Like the one on Kennedy. You were right I was wrong. I apologized to you. You were right. The government was keeping to the letter of the law. But didn't tell us. Research is the answer. I do not give up till I find the truth. And I did. So the messages are respectful my questions all have to do with coins. So I don't know who you are talking about.

No more points in 2023! I hope there will be more better quality blogs!

Not everyone knows what is right. It sure seems something new needs to be tried. Time will tell if another change needs made.

Hey @AC Coin$ What is your deal? Mike is doing exactly as we all try to do. Just as you pointed out. Is this a personal beef you have? Grow up. One suggestion for you. Don't make threats. "We will see about the rest." What does that mean. Seems like a threat. Isn't that what you have been complaining about? I have been following you for a long time. I hope you figure it out.

That expression,,, we will see about the rest was not a threat, nor it meant that. It is we will see how are we going to participate the way things are going to be. My respect to all those who are here and the ones gone. I am 55 years old (40 as collector) and, I do not need another user punishing me in private messages like your friend does every single day. I have had to put up with quite a lot that you are not aware of.

A marvelous suggestion to all and to ANA Staff: Remove and turn to "0" all accumulated points from all users, then ALL will be on the same spot and level.

@Mike, you do not like my comments here yet you enjoy writing me in messages and commenting in my blogs as you wish and, you got me blocked.

We have always been the same.. We are all collector's . That's the bottom line.Please do not comment on my blogs. I write them to share. People read them. I read blogs to learn. Yes I'm still learning. Authors have written multiple books because they have learned more. You can never learn it all. I get help about coins by reading blogs. And reading the comments.By the way I have been here much longer than you . I did what I wanted to do learn. Research history. And then and only then blog. That's all I will say to you on that

Thanks to you, since you are at the top and keep writing blogs as often as you wish. Then visiting others and getting comment points even higher. You keep on visiting my blogs and collections and getting what you have deemed "unnecessary" points. Wonderful success. Collecting and numismatics is what matters and who is up and down the line all deserve respect. Points or not, I will keep on blogging the way I enjoy. We will see about the rest. The purpose of this great site is to teach and communicate.

Your comment about me tells everyone that all your interested is points. Read your statement. I do what were supposed to do. I have coins in write blogs. I can write whenever I wish. That s write I am a member ? Was I supposed to stop? And making comments I was supposed to stop them also? And no one is at the top. Were all equal. That's why the members wanted to get rid of the points. I wrote a blog. Read there comments.. The members and myself are looking to a happy New Year!!!

I have learned allot in 30 years. I love this hobby. I have a passion for it. I don't owe you any explanation. So write your nasty remark. You know nothing about me. I have been published twice. I have a set that is the only one in the world. That's been certified by NGC. I don't owe you an explanation on anything. I love this hobby. I have a passion for it. Any thing I have achieved in life I have earned it. I have traumatic brain injury fractured neck and I just found out the brain injury is getting worse I'm scared. And I have to listen at you throwing a threat at me. We will see what happens next. That my friend is a threat. I don't deserve that no one does. I will as long as I can continue to follow the ethics. We are here to share our knowledge with other collector's. That's all I have to say. Please don't compare our blogs or how many I write.I have a very large collection . I will share my knowledge on them till my doctor tells me to stop. Yes its that serious.

Good. Mokie comments are right on. Long Beard makes some good points, I feel if the blogs, drop off, it will be blogs of common knowlegde.

Mokie summed up the situation. With the points system no longer a factor beginning in 2023, the ANA blog site will see a return to postings with real meaning behind them. The down side, you'll quickly see a drop in those who posted simply for points. Fear not, many, many more who are still with us will more than make up the difference by posting once more. And that is a win for both we the collectors and the ANA as a whole. So yes, thank you ANA staff for addressing the issue.

It's Mokie

I think some people think of points as a way to gain standing or earn respect but that is completely false. The way you earn standing and gain respect is by following Mike's example and simply writing your blogs for the simple joy it brings and the knowledge that others are benefiting from your efforts. Thank you Mike!!!! You are respected both here and in the ANA Headquarters and that is why they listened when you made your pitch. So a new day is dawning and we can all get back to the simple joy of spreading knowledge.

The members points system. No more points for collections either. No points for anything. Is that what the message means? I may start posting blogs again. Now that blogs are about numismatics and not about points. January will be a great month for numismatists!! I should send the ANA a donation come January after the points are gone !!
