I am disappointed to see a lack of kiwis.

Come on New Zealand. The debate over a new flag is much less important than the magic of stamp collecting.

Our membership currently stands at 14855 so we are now looking forward to member number 15000 early this year.

We were joined by 1667 new members in 2015 although only one of these was from a 'new' country. The following items show the countries where Stampboards has members.

Perhaps some of our 'guests' may care to join very soon. No fees, no ads and lots of information and enjoyment.

I am currently based in the Central African Republic, but am a citizen of the United States. My main areas of interest for collecting are the two countries I just mentioned, as well as Albania, Lithuania, Germany, Haiti and the United Nations. I am also interested in stamps from any country with the theme of international organizations.
Wow! tiralb will certainly help us to colour in a large chunk of Africa on the "red map". :idea:

Stampboards continues to thrive. Today we have new member number 15,000 which makes us unrivalled in philatelic internet circles.

January was also an eventful month as we were joined by new members from the Central African Republic and from Uzbekistan. This brings us to 145 countries from all corners of the globe (if such a thing is possible).

Details are shown on the following chart and map.

That map is looking great, it is only really central Africa, some Central Asian stans and Cambodia that are lacking members now. My guess is a few Pacific Island states are also lacking members (Tokelau, Kiribati, Tonga, Samoa, Cook Islands, Nuie, Pitcairn, Wallis and Futune).

Still waiting for someone from Equatorial Guinea, so we can ask him/her if they collect their incredibly wallpapery stamps of the 1970s. :lol:

Another month, another 120 new members. And 37 of those have already made a post, indeed one has posted 32 times.

The two images below show the list and map of countries with Stampboards members.

You will note that there are 147 countries shown and it was only 146 last month. The following item can be claimed by the first member (who has at least posted on the introduction thread) to identify the 'new' country.

By the way I noticed that the European chunk of Turkey is not coloured in your map. Is it an omission or do we really have no member from Istanbul or the rest of that region? Curious to know!

Email received and post office will be visited on Monday.

We need to look at the map in general terms. This is the second website we have used and both have their peculiarities. People may argue about whether Turkey is in Europe. Our site has solved that problem by allocating it to the Middle East and leaving out the Middle East. I am afraid we will just have to live with it.

As a matter of interest Aruba is not even included in their list of countries, along with many other Caribbean countries.
