    can't save to collections any ideas how to remedy this? Had no problem until today. Thanks all. I guess I need 100 words. The pic is of my grandfather as a boy , I think.

      Wasn't working yesterday for me or Valentino, either. CW is still becoming less and less efficient and functional, I'm afraid. I REALLY like the old CW before the take-over. This new one hardly works. I sent an email, asking about their progress, yesterday, but have not heard back yet.

      I will send an email as well. thanks for the update SpiritBear!

      Love the picture of your grandfather!

      Yes, chiming in here too again. I am disappointed that our new CW is not as "member friendly" as it used to be. Help?!
    7. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 2 years ago
      Don't you understand ?! The new owners aren't making any money off of CW. I've been talking with Mani, on the side about what is going on. When you use reason, there is nothing that is hard to understand. CW produces no monetary profits for the money worshipers. There Gods demand money ! It has an insatiable appetite ! It will continue to eat it's young. Sorry people, but that's what is happening & will continue until CW is just a memory in a few minds. We can't fight their money God, --- or can we ?

      It's just a bug give it a day or two.

      Wonderful photo of your dad and his pups Cindy, I love nostalgic family pictures. About collections, I never did those, but have noticed they stopped the email alerts when someone comments on your post, and I think the owners are still streamlining (it's always about cost efficiency) the site. I doubt it will become obsolete though, as our site spurs people to want something vintage they see here, then they go to auction sites to buy

      Wonderful picture of your grandfather. This would be an example of how photography is great. You get to see somebody you knew only as a relatively old person (or maybe never got the chance to know them at all) as a young person.

      As to CW collections, I personally don't have any, but I looked at my account, and noticed that "What are Collections?" is still a pick, leading to another page, but "Try building a collection!" is nothing more than some text.

      If that's now a 'feature' (the inability to create collections), rather than a bug, you'd think they'd change or eliminate that text, and/or announce the change.

      But maybe with such a small staff, that isn't feasible:


      Founded in 2007 by San Francisco-based antique-telephone collector Dave Margulius, the site has since grown into a directory of more than 1,700 different types of objects people like to collect—from action figures to Zippo lighters. In 2017, Collectors Weekly was purchased by Today, its staff of three writers and editors share an office in The Grotto in San Francisco.


      Newfld, I hope you're right.

      Hmmm, I read the Help page for "What are Collections?," and tried twice to create a collection as a test. While it gave some indications it was doing 'something,' I never ended up with anything I could view. Maybe I just don't understand how it's supposed to work.

      Wonderful photo !~

      Great photo. As a genealogist, this makes me drool.

      After reading the above, I guess I will stop whining about my new Viking Glass category!
    14. Ben Ben, 2 years ago
      Yes, Collections has been messed up for a while. Fixing it is on the list, along with lots of other stuff (like sending you a notice when someone posts a comment on your Show & Tell item; giving users the ability to rotate photos; etc etc). Sorry!

      Whoo! Had trouble logging in!
      Thanks for all the likes and the helpful comments. I am learning about how all this works.

      kwqd, I am crazy about genealogy also. I came from stock that lives a long time. My mom passed at 100, grandfather in the photo above in his late 80s. I have an aunt in NC who is coming up on 106 this Fall and she is doing great! These folks in my life have answered and identified many pictures. ( and I have many more to go) But still, I wish I had asked Mom more questions. I visited our local Historical Society last night searching for more. I would like to make a family tree of all the relatives who served in the military as far back as I can.
      Guess I am rambling now. Thanks for all the love folks

      Sorry Cindy. Guess I/we kind of commandeered your post.

      My collections have not been working for a very long time, that is sad !~

      I also asked about this on my horseshoe brooch post, and got a reply from Ben saying it was on the list of things to fix. Hopefully they will get to it soon
