I'd like to nominate psquareh for his thread 'Exploring the 1867 Issue of The Netherlands'
https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?p=6753026#p6753026

A very interesting read on a topic that appears well researched and presented.

I'd like to nominate Allanswood for this thread:

The Australia Post "Chapman" Collection of Australian Stamps, all the Pages.
https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=91707

Sure the information is available to all of us elsewhere, but unless one fiddles around the images are next to useless for any study. Allanswood's thread saves us all time and bother.

I have not nominated a member for quite some time, but this recent thread deserves to be nominated for the September prize. :)

I would like to nominate:

KevinHedley and his wonderful tour of Australia along the Princess Highway thread. :)

A philatelic trip along the Princes Highway

It's a treat to read about places in Australia and see them in this thread, for me and or those that have never been to Australia before. A fantastic thread filled with philatelic reference that is a must read for all. :D

If it is permissible, Waffle would like to third that nomination. An excellent road trip. I am looking forward to when he arrives in Traralgon, where we spent our first 8m years in Australia.

First, I'd like to thank Brad, Glen and John for their October nominations. :)

Second, just a reminder that we still have a few days left before another month draws to a close.

That said, or last, there is still time to add an October nomination or two. :)

I'd like to nominate Elkra for the October post(er) of the month.

He has run, and continues to run numerous weekly fun Rugby Union prediction competitions each with lovely prizes, all of which take a mountain of time to organise and update.

I know he does this for the fun and the benefit of the SB community rather than personal credit but his threads and generosity are worthy of the nomination.

I should add in the interests of transparency, that I am the beneficiary of his latest weekly competition.

An example of these competitions can be found here:
