Hello from Seattle

I just typed out a nice, 3-paragraph introduction, but I accidentally edited my subject line, and it was then only 19 characters, and it got rejected. I clicked "Fix it" at the error prompt, and I got this empty form back. Just the Internet gods telling me I'm too wordy.

I will soon be posting in the "Have You inherited Some Stamps?" forum. I'll see you there,

Tim

Thank you for the welcomes. yes, I am using Chrome browser, angore. I should be more careful about reading warning messages before I click submit.

I originally stumbled upon this site after doing a search for "Appfelbaum." I had responded to an advert for their appraisal/purchase expertise, and I have arranged to ship my stamp albums to them next week.

Since I wrote my original post above, I have read many dozens of posts on the forum, focusing mostly on my search results for the words "inherit" and "cash" and a couple about that company and their auction price-fixing scandal.

Also, since yesterday, I scanned all 237 populated pages of my newly-inherited collection. Once again, I failed to heed a warning, and used hyphens in my filenames. I guess I could rename them if/when I upload some. I did just test a hyphen-laden filename in the Test Topic area and it seemed to work OK. Will it bite me in the behind? Or is this a commonly-ignored warning: "letters or numbers only!"

Again, thanks for having me; no answers necessary in this topic area, but comments will always be appreciated.

Hello Tim, and welcome to SCF!

When ever I start a thread, I always write the title then just say "hey" in the text, then save the draft. You have to have some text included to be saved properly. I have also lost some time consuming texts by not saving before writing. Titles can only contain so many characters.

If your title is not accepted, you will loose your text.
