For some reason, random posts seem to be going to the moderation queue rather than showing up in the forum. I don’t know why and I apologize for that issue. I hope to have time to look into it.November 4, 2019 at 8:19 PM #10082
I am saving all the pages of the main menu at the Internet Archive in case the site ever goes down for no good reason. 😀
^Access point would be there, and then you could do the different URL’s for the other pages.November 23, 2019 at 10:24 AM #10358
Noticing some annoying glitches that may have something to do with the latest update to WordPress, but I’m not sure what’s causing them. If a page takes forever to load, I’ve found that hitting the “stop loading” button (X at upper left of Chrome browser for me) and then reloading it works to get the page up properly. If that’s for a forum post, make sure to copy the text from your post before reloading. In this way, often when I reload the thread, my post appears there normally without having to hit Submit again.
Also noticing that the profile notifications at the upper right are not disappearing after going to a new forum post from threads I’m subscribed to. I’ve been manually deleting the notifications by clicking the number rather than just the dropdown with the post link.
I hope to look into these issues but I cannot guarantee that I’ll have time.December 6, 2019 at 1:13 AM #10487
Woelf now has editing access to the Master Spreadsheet, so if there are any remaining errors you find in that starting 12/14, he can make the corrections for the shared Google sheet version.December 7, 2019 at 9:42 AM #10491
Just saved the following URL’s in full page screen capture format and in the Internet Archive:
Throughout the day/week I will edit this post with more, and then upload them to a Google Photos account too. (certainly not expecting the site to go down, I just want redundancy in protecting my favorite/best content)December 8, 2019 at 5:59 PM #10513
Here is a version of the Master Spreadsheet with all the sets in one tab. 2652 total game pieces!
You can download it via File>Download, or grab the link at the bottom of the homepage here.December 12, 2019 at 10:00 PM #10550
New .xlsx version of the Master Spreadsheet on the homepage. Corrections: Oarsmen>Oarsman in RV UL, fixed ability text for Homemade Flag (both versions of SM).April 3, 2020 at 7:25 PM #10758
Youtube is giving me a lot of trouble with live streaming (something to do with the switch to “studio” I believe), so for now I won’t be doing any live streams of podcasts/games/etc.April 9, 2020 at 4:29 PM #10808
To enhance “findability” on the site, I have added the Best Posts widget to Forum pages under the Recent Posts widget.April 29, 2020 at 9:50 AM #10897
Latest update to the Master Spreadsheet has a few corrections: Rigetti>Ragetti. Pintell>Pintel in a flavor text. Handful of game piece type changes, mostly from Ship>Crew or vice versa.July 28, 2020 at 6:19 PM #11504
Fixed a few more things in the Master Spreadsheet: Fixed mispelling of Norrington (PotC 080a). Fixed ability text of Spanish Main GS-004. Fixed numbers of OE French ships. Changed “rices” to riches in Thomas Tew’s flavor text.July 28, 2020 at 7:40 PM #11507
I have updated the Saved from Miniature Trading post with new gallery links. The first two Google Drive links now go to folders (first one regular, second one .zip) that have only the biggest pictures from the MT database. Now there is one folder per set and less clutter. The third link (“ALL”) can still be used to get every Pirates database picture httrack gave me in 2018.August 2, 2020 at 3:29 PM #11580
I have started a new Category called Miniature Trading Forum Threads where my plan right now is to post one old thread per day from what I have saved. Each actual post (that is the first one) will be full width with no sidebar, so it will make the text as large as possible and almost look like you’re scrolling through MT.
I know I’ve already shared these in GDrive and Imgur through the Saved from MT post, but this way they’ll be directly represented on my site with the images easily visible, with a site post title that matches the old thread title for easier searchability and hopefully easier viewing.August 24, 2020 at 5:02 PM #11894
Master Spreadsheet changes: Santa Teresa name fixed in both versions of SM (no “La”), fixed incorrect game piece types in original version of RV.
Also, some easy link references I made with bit.ly:
This way, if you’re at all like me, just pop open a new tab and type “customsd” or “piratescsgm” and the browser might automatically give you the URL to quickly access the desired spreadsheet.November 3, 2020 at 6:16 PM #12722
Master Spreadsheet fixes: changed point costs on Spanish Main +1 to boards crew to 2 points. (Genny’s Red Rampage, Lynch’s Noose, Castro’s Loyalists)June 1, 2021 at 10:19 PM #13287
HUGE thank you’s to Tilorfire27 (discord username) for his online database, and to jetmoto-1996 for his Full Catalog he so graciously shared and is allowing me to put on the site! I have put links to both databases (which include pictures of the game pieces) on both my homepage and the Information and Stats page which is linked from the main menu.August 29, 2021 at 2:11 PM #13674
Latest Master Spreadsheet fixes: fixed name of the Flying Fish in RV UL, and changed Revenant faction from Spanish to Pirate in SM 1st Edition.September 21, 2021 at 10:48 PM #13871
When I met up with Tiffany on Saturday, I asked her if the set release schedule (~3 sets per year) was based on marketing/profit expectations, or if that release would be too much too soon. She said it was based on a sales schedule that mass market stores (like Walmart and Target) wanted. (I think they wanted new product every so often)December 27, 2021 at 8:53 PM #14275
Master Spreadsheet changes: Fixed Phillipe du Brissac’s link (Maurice Aristide instead of Maurcie), changed name of Blackgate (no space). (new .xlsx is linked on the homepage)April 11, 2022 at 7:35 AM #14781
old_man tells me he has sold his entire Pirates CSG collection with the exception of his custom made Vieil Homme. 🙁 I’m asking about where his SiaB’s and Obago Deuce may have ended up.
He also said:
everyone can be bought, it only depends only on the amount of money. ?
It was a private sale. Someone contacted me by email and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. The important stuff I shipped to Texas and all the rest I sold privately in Germany.
No word yet on anything else.April 14, 2022 at 1:38 AM #14784XerecsModerator

That…… is very sad to hear. First Holo, now old_man. 🙁March 7, 2023 at 8:25 PM #16382
Not sure how accurate but it’s nice to get a response!March 8, 2023 at 5:07 PM #16384WoelfModerator
It looks like a standard canned response that doesn’t commit to anything in either direction, but it is at least nice that they responded.
