Hi dear all,
I registered to the ICSBS on June 4, paid the fee same day with PayPal.
I can log in, but - except for the Dealers and the News sections, I cannot open the rest: most important of all, I cannot open the "Journals" in the dedicate section - only view the cover, but clicking on the Journal does not open.
I have no blocks on my pc.
Maybe it's too early? Should I wait some days after registration/payment?
I have written to the office of ICSBS but so far the problem persists.Received a message today for charging Mr. Gary the webmaster to solve the problem but now situation unchanged.
Thank you for your opinion..
Cheers - Angela.

Hi Angela

The  ICSBS  is  generally very  slow  to  reply  to a  new  subscription  so  "hang  in there"  for a  couple  of  weeks  or  so 

What  is  your  interest  in joining the  ICSBS ?   Is  it  SBs  "in general"  -  if   so  Joey  Silver  and  several  other  long-term members  of the  Forum  (and the  ICSBS)  should  be  your  guide

Joey,  in particular ,  has a  gold-mine  of  deep  knowledge    and  is  happy to  share  it

Just  in case  your  interest  is particularly  in  Very  Modern  Inside - painted  bottles please  feel  free to  contact  me  personally  .

You can  send  me a  private  message , if  you  wish,    via the    confidential    Forum  message facility   check out the  tabs  on the  home  page )     and  send  me  your  private  email  address,  after  that we  can  correspond

Or  else  just  post   your  interest   on the  VMIPB  section  of the  Forum  !  Simple ! 

Cheers

Dear Peter,
thanks for your kind reply.
I am interested in snuff bottles, sometimes I buy a piece following my (personal) taste, and when I can afford it.
Since my first purchase at Galerie Zacke of June 2018, I immediately realized that it is necessary to have in-depth knowledge in such a complex subject - knowledge that I have not.
Last december I came across the best Forum dedicated to SB!
All people I met here on the Forum are exquisite I learned a lot from the good advices of you all.
Moreover it is always very useful and pleasant to go back reading the old threads, very appropriately ordered by topic.
For a neophyte, a sort of encyclopedia.
I registered at the ICSBS  because I am mainly interested to read the Journals (I cannot go to the conventions etc.) - especially the issues of past years, not easy to find.
There is something wrong, I cannot open the Journals Section from my pc - but also using iPad I have tried many times but nothing.
This morning I was informed by the ICSBS Office that their Webmaster is searching to solve what's wrong. I will check next days, I think you are right perhaps my new subscription is not yet finalized.
Concerning the very modern inside painted, I thank you for your kindness but at present, I'm oriented towards older pieces - just for my personal taste!
And recognizing that today there are exceptional modern artists, I have seen beautiful examples on http://snuffbottlecollector.com/
Cheers Angela.

Dear Peter,
problem solved today by the ICSBS Webmaster! Think that there was a sort of block to remove.
Now I can enjoy all the issues of the beautiful "Journals Section" of the Snuff Bottles Society.
Cheers to you and to all from Italy!
Angela.

Dear Angela,

     Sorry, I've been sick with pneumonia, but am now on the mend.
Julia, the new secretary, is much more efficient.

Dear Joey,
sorry to reply you so late. But I no longer receive Forum message alerts.
Me too I am not very well at present.
First of all: how are you now?
It was just a small technical problem with the ICSBS website, solved immediately by the very kind Mr. Gary.
I started reading the Journals, little by little because I have a low view:oh how wonderful they are! and I had a very nice communication with Ms. Berthe and Julia.
Best! Angela.

Hi dear Joe,
I started reading the Journals, from the oldest issues of the 70s.
It's really exciting to admire the collections and photographs of historical and famous collectors, what good times.
The Journals are a great and valuable guide for any collector.
Cheers
Angela.

Dear Angela,

     I wish you a speedy and full recovery. You are still on my Get Well Soon prayer list.

     You will see a lot of photos of me if you access the convention photos - I've been going to conventions since 1978 in Hong Kong, and only missed 5! So I've been to 36 conventions so far.

    The articles are really wonderful, and I have the whole collection, from the first issue. A friend of my late parents of blessed memory had joined in 1968, and had all the first issues. When I joined in 1974, he gave me his copies.
    Best,
Joey

Dear Joey,
thank you for keeping me in your prayer list, and for your good wishes: the same I return to you.
I decided to proceed with order, reading the Journals from the oldest to the most recent, but sometimes I jump and go to browse other issues: when I'm looking for something, for example these days I am curious to know something more about jujube bottles.
I bought one last month, posted in the Gem Stone Rock and Fossil section of the Forum. I would be pleased to hear your opinion. do you like it?
Yes, I found photos of you, in oldest Journals, but also in recents, like the Winter 2017 - London (amazing event)
I have found also a very useful article that you wrote on IP, in another issue - still to read.
The Convention events are always organized at the highest levels, and in the best locations!
Best Angela.
