The New Journal Features

Having joined the Collector's Society and started this Journal in mid-2007 I definitely feel like I've witnessed the site and the journal feature of the site "evolve" over time but I've been enjoying 1 new feature lately now that I'm gaining an understanding of how it works... the new Category feature.

When I first rejoined / became active again around 2016/2017 I had to get used to the new system but I very much remember being disappointed by the fact that the new system only let me have 1 journal - I wanted to have one specially about the 10G set and one for other things. The category feature actually fixes this. Now I can have a "Gold" category and a "Family" category and, my favorite, my "Random Nonsense" category and I click and see just my posts in that category.

I loved this so much I went back a while ago and added category labels to a bunch of old posts that didn't have them as far back as I could.

Another feature I've become aware of over time - it seems that after 1 year you can no longer go back and edit entries, just hide them. This one us a bit bittersweet as I has typos!!! So many typos. When I see them I will often try to fix them. Now, past the one year threshold, I see that is quite impossible. Sadness...

I've known for a while that I couldn't edit the legacy journals from. The old system for a while now but hadn't realized the old ones locked up after a year.

Of course, in my ignorance of the categories and how they work I've made quite a mess for myself on my PMG journal which I will now need to try to fix at some point while I still can... but, fortunately, that one is much smaller than this one.

Lol, I did the exact same thing about a month ago, changed/added labels, in my PMG journal. Mainly because my titles are such a mess and in no significant way reflect the content of the entry. It was only a matter of time before I completely forget what was in some of them and it probably makes it easier for an individual browsing journal entries, I guess. Mainly it was for my own sanity.

You can delete / hide I think. Just not make targeted edits.

I haven't really gotten into the journals yet and if I ever start - I can learn from you. I've been meaning to post one on the evolution of a collection - but something else always takes my time. 

how's the new house BTW?

Inspection went well very well. The house is in great shape. We just waived the last 3 days of our option period to help the sellers.

At this point, barring an act of God, we plan to move forward with the purchase, but we can't close until around the end of May and, with the leaseback, we may not be in the house until July or August. We could be in in June, if they can get their purchase closed on, which is why we agreed to end the option early to help them, but I'm not going to hold my breath in this market. So It's going good, it's just going to be hard to put up with 2 months of constant dreaming about a house we're not in yet. lol
