My suggestion to add to the main list would be to include a "Ask a Boardie a Question" section where volunteers can have there username linked to a PM so that newcomers can ask (what they may perceive as a stupid) question to someone who has been around longer without the fear of a hell-storm. We can even include topics we are more familiar with to aid newcomers. Example: key books, moderns, silver age, CGC grading, CGC fees, turn around times, page quality, etc.

 

I'll volunteer to help here (if HS will likes the idea) and ask for other volunteers as well (once again, if HS likes the idea).

 

What the link would look like:

 

ASK A BOARDIE A QUESTION

 

For GOLDEN AGE

Boardie

 

For SILVER AGE

Boardie

 

For BRONZE AGE

Boardie

 

For COPPER AGE

Boardie

 

For MODERN AGE

Ask ItsJustRyan

 

For GRADING (CGC) Questions

Boardie

 

For RESTORATION Detection

Boardie

 

For SELLING on the BOARDS

Boardie

 

Etc.

 

Etc.

 

Etc.

 

 

HS could wrap this in a spoiler in the main list and volunteers could offer to help on selected topics.

 

Just an idea. Take it or leave it. Volunteers can help in more than one content area as well. Someone may be knowledgable on restoration detection and GA books, so they could volunteer to be listed under both header...

My favorite part of that thread:

 

SPECIALTY EXPERTS

 

Comic Grade

Mr. 9.8--9.8 And above, White PQ only.

 

Doesn't matter which book you have - as long as it's a 9.8 (or above), Mr. 9.8 is the go-to expert. But only if they have white pages.

This was tried previously - took all of 5 mins before it turned into a "I'm more of an expert than you are" contest.

 

Forward all question's to Ajax's mom- problem solved!

It's all good. No one has to be an 'expert' - rather a traffic director to help people find the answers they seek. AND, multiple people can be listed under each category (shrug)

 

Doesn't have to devolve into madness... :wishluck:

Er, you might want to check your custom title.

 

:roflmao:

 

(shrug)

 

It was frickin' funny while it lasted.

I'll admit it.One day I saw his Custom Title one day and it actually made me try to figure that out. :facepalm:

 

I searched under Preferences for awhile. lol
