Stuff like this hurts the hobby!

I DO NOT agree with the current rules, laws and regs related to metal detecting in the the US…especially when it comes to finding historically valuable relics.  HOWEVER…sneaking around and doing this kind of thing makes it even worse for those of us who follow rules and try to help the hobby be seen in a good light.

New forum system!

Due to some technical issues, we have migrated the forums to the WordPress forum package.  All old posts were imported, so no lost information!  It is different than what you were used to, but has a better future ahead…and is integrated with WordPress so it’s easier to manage (for me, anyway!)

A couple of things:

  1. to get a profile photo, use Gravatar ( http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/what-is-gravatar-and-why-you-should-start-using-it-right-away/ )  *NOTE* just added a plugin that will also allow you to upload an avatar/profile picture.
  2. If you are a previous user of our forums, you name is still in the list.  Try you usual name and password.  If that doesn’t work, email me at [email protected]

Thanks!
