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.

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

Hi Everyone!

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:

Congratulations Richard = capetriangle, the six frames you showed early in that thread are stunning. No wonder you got full marks for presentation.

/RogerE :D

P.S. Although some of the subsequent posts are about judges' preferences and second guessing them,
I must say that for me the social philatelic aspects of the exhibit add to its appeal (even if they might
stretch the technical envelope about where a "traditional" exhibit can go). In particular, referring to
your fourteen-year-old self first seeing these stamps at the RPSL exhibition in 1969, in the company
of your father, adds for me a humanising dimension to your exhibit. :D
