The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 8, February 19, 2006, Article 4

ON THE E-SYLUM EDITORIAL FORMAT

Fred Schwan, Editor of the MPCGram, writes: "I was most
interested to read the comments of Rick Witschonke and
(especially) your comments in response.  I must say that
I had thought about The E-Sylum publishing general numismatic
news and features, and I did not like it. Partially, I was
jealous because it makes it easier for you to fill your
virtual pages while I must sometimes schedule to do the
same thing in MPCGram where we include very little general
numismatic news.

But then as I read through v9n7 I saw quite a bit about the
Olympic medals that was of great interest to me and which
I probably will not find elsewhere. Thanks for your great
work."

Roger deWardt Lane writes: "If it isn't broken, don't fix it!"
Just keep up the great job you are doing for the numismatic
community. I read and archive every issue."

Terry Trantow writes: "I am continually pleased with the amount
of information you are able to present every week in the E-Sylum.
Keep up the good work!

Larry Gaye writes: "I like what goes on in the E-Sylum.  Information
in the past has been disseminated in the books we all treasure and
hopefully will remain so in the future.  We do have the advantage
of living in a time when we are able to see information being spread
in the medium of the Internet and forums such as the E-Sylum.  The
"word" is still the same whether we view it on paper or a computer
screen. Because of the speed and number of folks involved the
E-Sylum brings the old and the new together; as research is ongoing
so too is the content we see."

[Words are indeed what we're all about, and that focus is reflected
in our plain-vanilla text format.  New words, phrases and definitions
are all part of the fun.  Terry Trantow added: "I had to smile a bit
about the British item of the King Coenwulf gold penny found by a
'metal detectorist'. Bless the British for being more precise."

Jeff Hawk writes: "I very much appreciate the headlines you
use to separate articles.  No, I don't read every single
article every week, but I'll tell you something, I learn
something of real value to me just about every week.  This
week I discovered the Numismatic Indexes Project and learned
how to use it. What a great thing!  Also recently I "discovered"
Don Taxay, and am now putting together a collection of his books.
Please keep putting out this great product!"

Patrick MacAuley writes: "I agree with every word of Wayneís
description of what the E-Sylum about.  Numismatic books must
form the core area of interest, but the people who write these
books and the numismatic subjects currently on their minds are
just as interesting.  We want to find, analyze, and preserve
the existing books, yet we also want to look toward the future.
Hopefully, hundreds of numismatic books and articles are yet
to be written by the E-Sylum fellowship, and Wayneís service
is greatly benefiting the quality and quantity of what we
will write.

Even though Iíve only been a member of E-Sylum for two months,
this has already provided a big boost toward my own future work.
Not only have I acquired several great books, but Iíve gained
a lot of knowledge that isnít inside the book covers."
