Who's the jerk Alex ?

Gillian asked for help, I didn't see you step forward with any answers.

Perhaps, with YOUR attitude it's time you also left this forum likewise ..!!!

Come on gentlemen keep it civil! No need for name-calling.

The photograph of the stamp in question was the right way up on my device. I don't know why it inverted when I put it in my album on this forum and I don't know why that happened twice. Stuff like that happens to me sometimes.

Happily, a missing page from my son's album turned up, which had examples of different scripts according to their countries, so now I shouldn't have any difficulty identifying what country a stamp is from.

My confusion about the name on the stamp arose from having stamps from China with the name printed on them in English. I'm not letting it bother me, I was just interested to know. I'll put them in the album page marked China.

Good afternoon Gillian,

The reason for my comments was to point out the various things that you had inadvertently done wrong and when another member interjects, who shall remain nameless and starts to call another member a jerk for helping someone else, I feel that his comments was unhelpful and unjustifiable to say the least.

I'm glad you have resolved the problem encountered in more ways than one, answering someone else's query is not always straightforward.

Have a nice day Gillian, perhaps next time you will be more aware of what to do.

Regards, Fred.

We all learn from our mistakes Gillian, and the outlandish remark made by Alex towards me deserves an apology, with regards to his insulting behaviour, or does he think he owns this forum and can say just whatever he likes ? Fred.

Brill Gill ! I see you have now made several modifications to your original album by removing the two inverted photo's and replacing them with the one originally intended.

Presentation is one of the most important features when displaying an item to be assessed by others, you're learning !

It means that I no longer have to stand on my head to view them 🙃

Should you need to post others in future you will know what to do, it's a learning curve.

Best wishes and have a nice day, Fred.

Thanks Fred. The new one was taken with my mobile phone and added from there, so I'll maybe use that from now on. I know very well the importance of good presentation so it was very annoying when the other image appeared in duplicate and inverted.

Stay safe!
