I stumbled across the Postage Stamp Guide website, which clearly focuses on Canada with the hopes of adding U.S. (some modern have been added).

It can clearly help collectors of Canada.

I wondered if anyone knew about this site? It can be utilized at 3 payment levels (free, $60 a year; $120 a year)

Is the site new? Been around for a while? Does it seem viable?

Here is the link:

No contact info, no terms and conditions, but give them money? Not for me.

I was thinking the same thing ... though, it seems to be a very well done website. Would take a bit of investment to do all that work so I hope there is some ooomph behind it all.

I took a look - frankly looks like an very basic, mostly abandoned project and the price is hefty. For example, it only provides the ability to list one of each issue, no accommodation for varieties. There are other software products/sites out there which do far more for less, or even free. Can't name some of them because of forum rules, so I won't name any, but some searching will find them, or feel free to email me.

C-R-G. In this case, I don't think this would be considered a drive-by link. It's more like a good member passing a possible resource on to others, which is done in moderation. I've posted links to non-commerce informational sites in the past too.
What's not permitted is for brand new users or anything that directly competes with revenue stream. Otherwise it would be flooded by spammers posting links to everything and anything.

I wasn't promoting it in any way ... I was asking if anyone was familiar with it and what they thought. A couple of good opinions here, but always interested to hear more.

Please note that CRG did NOT do this part of his post - the green font designates a Mod edit including the link to the rules.

CRG had posted a an external link to another website, it was removed. As a new member, this ('drive-by' links) is disallowed. This had/has nothing to do with Centerstage's post.
