    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.

    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.  😀

    https://web.archive.org/web/*/https://pirateswithben.com/

    ^Access point would be there, and then you could do the different URL’s for the other pages.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    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.

    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.

    To enhance “findability” on the site, I have added the Best Posts widget to Forum pages under the Recent Posts widget.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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:

    http://bit.ly/PiratesCSGMasterSpreadsheet

    https://bit.ly/CustomsDatabase

    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.
