This website has been on a tear rapidly increasing in popularity for some time, and I thank you, the good forum members, for making that happen!

I'm rating this #1 for friendly and helpful people who don't judge and give extremely helpful info on all topic's. It's a great site for someone like myself who just likes good honest info from experienced detectors. Easy choice to join Detectorprospector.com   If you are just browsing and see this please join up and see the difference from other sites. we are all very respectful and willing to help out with your questions and give you congratulations on a good find.  I'm very new to this site and have had ZERO bad experiences. If someone here does not know something they will know someone who does. Thanks GB Amateur, Kac, 2Valen and Steve Herschbach for making my first experiences a great one. I wood love to see a Detectorprospector rendezvous, Maybe you could make that happen Steve ??

It's an idea but I'd not hold my breath. Of course any number of people on the forum can meet up anywhere if they choose.

Hmmm interesting. Well I'm on 2 and 3 on the list. I have or had a findmall account. Since they did the change my old password doesn't work. I hardly ever posted there so not too bothered... I have a look at Dankowski forum every now again but find the format very difficult to read.

Hey, with a little more effort I could have Geotech in the top 2 million!

There are a lot of forums out there that are downright ugly in their format, so ugly I wouldn't even consider using them, messy and you have to try and decipher the information on them.  They look like they were made with forum software templates from the early 90s.

Don't the Alexa results rely on people having the Alexa toolbar installed? I would think not many would, especially people with a clue. 

It's good to see the forums are alive and kicking.

Yeah, Alexa is not perfect, it's just the best overview you can easily get with a sample database numbering in the millions. Google Analytics give you better numbers for a site, but no way to easily compare those numbers with other websites. Alexa is owned by Amazon.

An alternative is SimilarWeb

Steve,

First I want to thank you for having the best site and so easy to use. The best people are here and it just can't get any better.

Now for what you said above: but she won't meet me there!

      Mr. Andy Sabisch is a great metal detectorist and a great man. He after me reaching out sent my husband a free autographed book of his and sent us his business card. My husband has been wanting a Vanquish propack since the mentioning of it being made and Mr Andy offered my husband a great deal. See some people may not know he sells metal detectors. Mr Andy and his wife at Treasure Hunting outfitters have impeccable customer service and truly great deals and Mr Andy will work with me and He's letting me make payments. My husband is going to be so stoked for his birthday present. He is so ready to get back to metal detecting. See not many people know this but metal detecting saved my husbands life he was deeply and darkly depressed and suicidal about 10 years ago. He had his left leg amputated at six in a hunting accident his leg was blown off by a 12 gauge shotgun. At 24 10 years ago. He had his right hip replacement and they told him never work again. He's been on SSI since. Gets very little money I had to work 3 jobs to pick up slack. He felt worthless, useless and he was lonely because I worked kids were always at school and after school programs. He was very close to killing himself. He saw a metal detecting video. And they told Him he could do anything like that but he fell deeply a Passionately in love and was set on fire to get out and find history and discovered a new and free and whole other part of himself in metal detecting. His pinpointer recently broke and he needed one and i mentioned the vanquish to Andy and he ran a amazing deal by me guys I couldn't refuse at all. Period. 590.00 for a pulse dive and a Vanquish 540  propack..... That's major savings and he guys go to Andy for all your metal detecting needs. If he doesn't have it which most likely does he will make sure he gets it for you and as quickly as he possibly can. So go to Andy y'all. Great person. Sales@TreasureHuntingOutfitters.com
      (734)230-1121. Oh promo going on 100.00 for pulse dive y'all. Crazy savings

      Hi all. I have downloaded a photo resizer app off the internet for android devices. It has the resize options of pixels, cms and inches. Which do I use for this site and details please? I am going to try and get my head around uploading photos to this forum via my tablet or smartphone rather than via computer. TIA and help appreciated.

      Enjoying everything but one person’s posts rub you the wrong way? Go to your settings in upper right and look for “Ignored Users”.
      Ignoring a user allows you to block some or all of their content from showing. Users are not notified that you are ignoring them.
      Just add the user name you wish to ignore to the list accessed under “Ignored Users”.
      I prefer people not complain about other people on the forum. If you have an issue contact me directly about it or use the ignore function.

      That would be cool. I always wanted to try a D-Tex, Gardiner, Compass, Arado, etc... but was stuck on early Bounty Hunters and Whites. Always wondered if anyone actually used them in the parks around my area in the 70's

      I have had mine for a year now and it is the only detector I use now. My only thoughts are the 8x11 coil works great in the water but I wish he would offer a 12" coil for the damp,wet and wash. It also would help shrink those fields while relic hunting.

      I was contacted out of the blue recently by Dimitar Gargov, owner and designer for Tarsacci metal detectors. I gave him a call and we were like two kids talking metal detectors! He explained some ideas he has for the future and I decided it was past time to set up a forum for Tarsacci owners to discuss their detectors. The MDT 8000 is a very high performance detector designed first for saltwater use but people are trying it for other purposes to good result. The bottom line is I have always supported competition especially as regards new technology. My main bias is I tend to only feature detectors with U.S. dealers and service. Yup, I am U.S. centric - sue me!  Tarsacci as a home brewed detector obviously meets that criteria. So here we go, a forum for Tarsacci and the MDT 8000 and whatever else Dimitar's brilliant mind brings us eventually.
      Yeah I am buttering him up because I think I have talked him into doing what he never does - appear on a forum to answer questions about his product. Don't expect to get deep proprietary info as it is.... well, it's proprietary! But I hope to see Dimitar here soon. I am sure you will give him all that friendly place to share information we are famous for. Thanks!
