Southernpride2588 Please post images as no doubt you will be told that this is a visual site!
I prefer to collect UK, British Commonwealth esp Pacific area ( not excluding West Indies/Canada ) and Western Europe. At the bottom of my zone of interest is Eastern Europe and communist countries.

Note to new Stampboarder Felipe = piccinini78 in Brazil.

There is an amazing contemporary Australian artist named Patricia Piccinini, who creates new kinds of beings that appear for all the world to be real flesh and blood and hair and emotion, and move us to respond to them with a natural emotional response. You can read about her in many places, such as this Sydney Morning Herald article:
https://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/beauty/meet-the-melbourne-a ... 51odz.html

Here is an example of a Piccinini creation:

Hello to all members! My name is Cristian, I'm from Romania. I'm a long time banknotes collector and also I studies about medieval numismatic of Walachia and Moldavia. For some weeks I have started a small collection of stamps. I have chose to collect worldwide stamps before 1950. For the moment I'll start with used stamps and latter try to complete with mint stamps.
I didn't made trades before just buying items (stamps, banknotes and coins) from ebay and delcame, but I'll try it now and hope to meet and made new friends in the world.

Best wishes to all,
Cristian

Hi all .. I'm Phil, and I live in Coventry, UK .. I'm enjoying retirement partly by cataloguing my modest collection of stamps .. I have owned one or two scruffy albums down the years; not large enough or tidy enough to facilitate a decent display .. recently I decided to buy some stock books (with black pages and clear strips) and for the first time I can take pleasure in a leisurely thumb through lots of tidy pages filled with lots of fascinating stamps. :) :)

Hello Allison = artbook10 in Brisbane, Australia. Welcome to Stampboards.

I'm not clear on what you have in mind with your last question:
"What do i save file as when i attach a photo?"
Perhaps if you explain a bit more it might help us to provide useful information in reply...

Hello Andrey,

Welcome to Stampboards for the second time! :)

I can see that your collecting interest have changed since your first introductory post in 2017. But that is perfectly fine because most collectors do change their area/s of interest. :)

I think your English is fine, considering it's not your native language. :)

Since you have been away from the board for three years, I think it would be a good idea to take a look at the Rules for posting on the board. You can see all the Rules at this link:

https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2556

Also, please take a look at this thread which gives you a step by step instructions how to add images to your posts:

Test and post your images direct onto June 2020 NEW Stampboards

Enjoy the board! :)
It does pay if you are humble and kind.

Trying to help a bit. Old stamp is before WW I, or before 1900. Often people who do not collect, call stamps from 1960's and 1970's old, while these tend to be the most common stamps in the market (depending on the country). Usually countries with high population (such as USSR, USA, Germany and France) issued lots of stamps and they tend to be common.

Some countries issued lots of stamps to generate revenue from stamp collectors. Worst offenders were some Arab countries, but many communist countries and small islands did that too (along with some other poor countries).

Welcome to Stampboards piccinini78 (Felipe) from Brazil :)
Thank you friends RogerE and MJ. even far away, if you look at the map, my state here in Brazil crosses the same line that passes through half of Australia, a beautiful country, similar in some aspects to Brazil, cheerful people, warmth, although here it even snowed in the mountains 80 km here from home, on the coast, which is a little milder. thin here is the end of winter. I am a fan of Australian stamps, mainly I find beautiful those first of Kangaroos, simple and striking as well as our first stamps the famous bull's eye. big hug, philatelic greetings.

Welcome to all the new members .

Two from Brazil this week -- small world!

I've visited Brazil about 10 times on holidays, (including New Year's Eve 4 times!) and love that area around Balneário Gaivota - visited nearby Porto Alegra too - wonderful city. :mrgreen:

Glen

Thank you Sheriff. I am grateful for the patience and tips of all collaborators, at the beginning I had some errors in headings and posts but I am policing myself to make less mistakes. Balneário Gaivota is among the 10 fastest growing cities in the State of Santa Catarina, it had less than 5,000 inhabitants in 2004 when I arrived here and now its population is bordering 11,000 inhabitants with peaks in the summer between 60,000 and 80,000, by the sea now it has a beautiful boardwalk and dunes are preserved, natural protection against big waves, refuge for ferrets, owls and other birds.
