This is a nice toner 2000-P sac. @OAKSTAR always loved to go through dollar coins, and I thought that this is a suitable memorial photo( since I couldn’t find a speared eagle).


Cheers, CRHer700 :mrgreen:

    What happened to Oakstar?

    I'm hoping you just mean banned, or do you mean passed away?

    I see he got banned....just freed up a spot on my ignore list!🤣😂

    I looked through his recent comments and didn't find anything that appeared ban-worthy. Does anyone know what the offending comment was?

    There were a number of political comments over the weekend. Likely got deleted by the mod.

    I just hope he got banned, instead of the alternative!
    We lost too many here already.
    :/
    In saying that, it doesn't mean I wish he did get banned.

    He may be "reborn".

    I know of at least one banned member who became reincarnated here under new identity and I'm sure there are a few others.

    He was not a mean spirited guy. I see some that get banned because they get a little carried away, and others that get banned for being outright mean and combative. I didn't always agree with what he said, but I never took anything personally. God speed, @OAKSTAR !

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.

    Mod let me return about a month after the circle and bar. Maybe he can liven things up ATC for a while (I tried).
    I ain’t killing him off yet.

    Good luck @OAKSTAR ! See you on the bourse!

    Content is shrinking—bad idea to ban him forever. He generates enthusiasm and posts.

    Well now he can RIP in peace.

    Not under " Oakstar " I know one that was banned a few years ago. less than 24 hrs. later we had a new member. Didn't think anything about it, but as I'd bought a coin from him pre ban. then another several months later..... guess what, same address. He never admitted it on here or by P.M. nor did he deny it.

    You’re a newb so you may not know — “In memory of [insert name]” definitely sounds like someone died — plus, a good way to get banned yourself is to start a thread lamenting the banning of someone else

    We all make mistakes.

    Nice that he apologized to you however in order to get banned he committed multiple violations and ignored warnings from the Mod. 🧐

    Let's be real. He wasn't a saint contrary to what some are saying here. 🙄

    He once made a political post. I suggested he remove it. He PMed me, mad because he thought i was disagreeing with him. I told him I just didn't want to see him banned. We had a nice chat and it was all worked out. He could be a little reflexive, but he always tried to work it out. I will miss him.

  • WQuarterFreddieWQuarterFreddie Posts: 2,548 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Ok. No one called him a saint but I am correct that in order to get banned he committed multiple violations and ignored warnings from the Mod. 🧐

    Interesting how many on here are quick to defend a rule breaker.🧐

    Censoring is becoming quite common in the United States, never thought I'd live to see it.

    It is not censoring. The mods posted forum rules that we all must follow. If you break a rule you are warned by the Mods and made aware of what you did.

    If you break a rule a second time you get another warning. Third time put in jail...then a fourth or fifth time you may get banned.

    The Mods provide ample warning and several chances before an outright ban. By the time you get banned you either don't care or are too stubborn to stop the violations.

    Not a single poster said or implied anything remotely close to that about the banned member.

    If Saint is the standard, it's going to get mighty quiet around here...

    I don't think anyone tried harder than Oakstar to fix any problems he started. That says a lot about him as a person.

    I never said you have to be a saint to participate in the forums but you do have to follow the rules or risk being jailed and then banned if you continue violating the rules.

    I don't feel sorry for him. He had many chances to correct his behavior.

    It's a memorial thread started by friends of the departed member. If you were not a fan then you probably should not have commented in the first place. ;)

    He actually was a good, exuberant contributor quite often, but his political outbursts cancelled some of that out. That "any questions" shtick in his political posts got old quickly. I think his "Biden supporter" comment might have completed the ban.

    Sorry to see @OAKSTAR banned. :/

    He was in jail for a political post and if he made another one like mentioned by Elmer this is the reason he is gone.
    We chatted a bit over the last couple of weeks by PM, since we were cell mates we had plenty of time to talk.
    I told him to use caution while he was in jail and to make sure he did not post anything else political.
    I guess my warning and the moderators warning fell on deaf ears. :/
    If he comes back I hope he learned this is not the place for political posts.
    Anyone else thinking about posting political stuff just don't do it, you see what happens. ;)

    I have been staying away from the forum so I don't push my luck. (too bad he didn't)

    I'll give you one thing--Every single post you make turns out to have been a waste of time to read (at best). I'll now find the "ignore" function on this board; congratulations!

    I am one who detests when people make political posts on non-political boards. But your piling on, when you most certainly are not a "saint," on this thread, is remarkably inappropriate.

    The ban hammer is probably why there's like 6 people that post on kitco anymore, although the rules there are much looser - you gotta F-up, even in the open forums.
