I have read hundreds of blogs . All I ask is that the research is good and the history right. I have read blogs with wrong history on them . I usually message the writer and a correction is made. When they are not friends we can't send a message so it has to go on the blog. So if we all including myself please check our information before we hit that save button just go over it one more time. Thanks it will be very helpful to all.1 year ago
Wrong Information on Blogs
I agree. It is getting very bad here.1 year ago
Misinformation on the blog tarnishes the reputation of the ANA as "a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect money and related items." (This quote was copied from the ANA's mission statement.) The official disclaimer that the blog represents the author's opinions and not the ANA falls on deaf ears. If they can remove blogs with offensive language as they should, they can remove blogs with false and plagiarized information. (Quoting numismatic publications to support a point is acceptable if they are referenced). Furthermore, the current blog climate only encourages more of the same and drives away serious bloggers.1 year ago
I also agree. I also think that “comprehensive skills” will be involved here. For example, a lot of folks have a driver’s license, but some shouldn’t have them because they either choose to disobey the rules or they don’t understand them which in turn causes accidents. Just my “2 cents” ! Disclaimer: This comment was about coins, i.e. “2 cents” ;-) !1 year ago
On driving that's what got me here I was hit in my company car by an 82 year old man driving a truck. My neurosurgeons one was a coin collector. Told me because of my damaged brain I would need a hobby. So that's when I started. That's why I have to check my blogs a few times. Spelling and content. Five to 10 days to write one .1 year ago
The Member Blog section has become a wasteland of wasted space. I can't even view it anymore without immediately wanting to flee the page. I think a variety of factors have led to this situation but the primary factor rests with one individual who cannot help but put up multiple blogs on, quite frankly, boring subjects. What at first was mildly charming has become toxic waste.
Well said. A toxic wasteland for sure. So many good, established members have fled this site. A shame the powers that be have made him a protected species. So sad. My opinion. I could be wrong.1 year ago
Every coin has a story. Can’t all blogs have a story to? These people that are mucking up the blog stream have got to learn. But we all started somewhere. Just keep commenting, correcting, and helping. That’s all we can ever do.1 year ago
I also agree. I’ve seen blogs with things like 80% silver nickel and other information that is bad for young collectors because they use this site to gain information not disinformation.1 year ago
I agree as well... Too much inaccurate information. This is bad especially for our YN's. The whole blog site is generally pretty boring right now... Too many blogs from someone bury the good interesting blogs... It gets discouraging.
