  1. This forum used to recognize the BBcode for inserting images as discussed in this thread with the img tag encased in brackets, but the recent major update disabled that. Now it works again just like so (I'm copying cheese's original post example):
  2. Well I was right: it was disabled in the update, but there is still an option to enable it, so I checked that. They did warn that it may go away in future versions though.

  5. Wow that first pinkish one is amazing. Always a rare color but I doubt I have even half that much of that color in all my Masters. Nice!

A 1921 article from Kansas, however, mentions a "cloudy" being worth three "chinese" and then mentions a "brandy" being equal to "two glassies" thus perhaps suggesting a cloudy is not glass. I mention that because a couple of weeks later somebody wrote in and said "The 'cloudies' mentioned were perhaps the kind that went by the polite name of 'snot agates' with us." Whether he is right about a cloudy being nicknamed a snot agate,
  12. My slags have all become snot-agates thanks to this great little article from The Yale Democrat (Yale, Oklahoma), 24 Mar 1920:
