Having joined the Collector's Society and started this Journal in mid-2007 I definitely feel like I've witnessed the site and the journal feature of the site "evolve" over time but I've been enjoying 1 new feature lately now that I'm gaining an understanding of how it works... the new Category feature.
When I first rejoined / became active again around 2016/2017 I had to get used to the new system but I very much remember being disappointed by the fact that the new system only let me have 1 journal - I wanted to have one specially about the 10G set and one for other things. The category feature actually fixes this. Now I can have a "Gold" category and a "Family" category and, my favorite, my "Random Nonsense" category and I click and see just my posts in that category.
I loved this so much I went back a while ago and added category labels to a bunch of old posts that didn't have them as far back as I could.
Another feature I've become aware of over time - it seems that after 1 year you can no longer go back and edit entries, just hide them. This one us a bit bittersweet as I has typos!!! So many typos. When I see them I will often try to fix them. Now, past the one year threshold, I see that is quite impossible. Sadness...
I've known for a while that I couldn't edit the legacy journals from. The old system for a while now but hadn't realized the old ones locked up after a year.
Of course, in my ignorance of the categories and how they work I've made quite a mess for myself on my PMG journal which I will now need to try to fix at some point while I still can... but, fortunately, that one is much smaller than this one.
