As noted in the guidelines on the same screen where journal entries are made, there are places other than here for non-journal type content.
If your topic fits into non-journal categories, we suggest these other tools:
Buy/Sell/Trade - Visit our Chat Boards in the MarketPlace forum.
Grading service issues or questions - use the contact us form and customer service will get back to you.
Discussion topics - asking others for opinions or information is best done on the boards.
The purpose of the journal area is to share basic personal experiences about collecting. We do have some changes to the CS coming that I think will help everyone to enjoy the journals in ways more inline with both the intended purpose AND their own personal preferences. Some of these features will allow you to control where, when, and whose journals appear on your screen.
However, regardless of those features, please use the journals appropriately, and put other kinds of messaging on the chat boards where they belong.
