For the good news: Thank you AMark, thank you Glen! (And thanks Ubobo.R.O., for the post in the Happy Day thread.)

Thanks for the nominations: Wolfgang, Ubobo.R.O., Stamp collector, and Catweazle.

Question: May I nominate a philatelic colleague to receive the Stamp News subscription I have won? The reason is that I have had a lifetime subscription to Stamp News since its launch in the present form (yea these many years ago!). :D

Roger .. yes I am sure if you supply Kevin with a name and address you'd like to go to domestically he will be OK with that.

You are coming up soon to 10,000 posts I see and a new bauble - we can leave your avatar section as is, or change it to Thread of The Month Winner instead .. let us know!

When some are throwing up their hands in despair about the ageing demographic of the hobby, this thread demonstrates that this is not the whole story with new younger collectors putting their own spin on collecting.

This thread was initiated in Nov 2015, and has been added to regularly by
Eli ever since, now reaching 115 posts.
The posts are typically filled by a group of beautiful stamps, accompanied
by helpful commentary telling us all about the stamp subjects.

I would like to nominate johncrow for his many detailed threads on German stamps. These include how to pick varieties, colours, papers and watermarks. He shares many of his techniques for analysing colours and his extensive collections.

The following are some examples of John sharing his detailed knowledge.

This is pleasant surprise given the other nominations and I thank all involved.

I also humbly thank those congratulating me.

I enjoy the Stampboards community and hope I can continue with my inputs for the benefit of all including myself trying to sort and rearrange what I have.

I must admit that the new easy way of entering scans is fuelling up my inputs

Thanks to all the people and the ´engines` that run this excellent board.
