Greetings to you -
I would be interested in seeing how Numista is used by the +95,000 users.
I, myself, have attempted to add every coin that is in my collection to the data base. Do you do the same? Or is there another scheme that you used the data base for?
I have noticed a few users with zero coins in their collection, those members seem to use the site as a method to have the expertise of the combined users as their own personal coin "google." (and they are not usually disappointed) Or perhaps as a way to have their coin identified and maybe valued by the combined knowledge of the group. Not saying anything is wrong with that.
There are some users who have been on the site for a long period of time that have just a few thousand coins listed but seem to be a wealth of knowledge regarding coins. Indicating to me that their involvement in the hobby is more than just a few thousand coins.
Also, is there a way to determine the grand total number of entries into the total data base? It sure to be in the 100s of millions or maybe billions. (Even if our father gave us 400 million coins to start with. ) I'm sure that this last sentence will be deleted but I just couldn't help myself!
