  1. Came on to give my grades.... This only worked when I use to live here everyday. Then I never missed anything.
  2. Blah. Greggy like gibberish doesn't impress like the old days. I also noticed no more member sign-up dates in your icon area even though the area is bigger. And when I click on a thread it doesn't go to the last post read but the first post of the thread. Can that be changed? I don't see an option in the settings.
  3. It's been in decline since the removal of the babe test thread. I stopped posting after the update since this place seems alien now. They even took the little cake icon away for your birthday.
  4. Yes. 6.5 is a classic drop grade for a VF range book with one moderate stupid thing done to it. Like 5.0 is a classic drop grade for VFish books with a moderate sub-crease. Agreeing with you here except for the 'one stupid moderate thing'. IMO, it's one, severe stupid thing. I realize grading is a judgement call, and the severity of a flaw is a judgement call but I don't think the graders thought this through enough. That is a nasty flaw. The comic should not be called a strong Fine. Well remember the "grade" reflects the structural condition of the comic more than the esthetic condition (comics poorly centered get no "points off" etc...) so a comic with a popped staple will get killed but a comic with a silly kids scribbles will only get a wrist slap.

  6. Got the grade today. It is a 5.0. Oh nice.
  7. 5.0/5.5 Always a tough call on those would be a VF but.... GA books.
  8. Agree. 6.0/6.5 Darn staining on the back or it would be in the 7s.

  10. Nice book! Are cgc ever wrong about trimming? Yes. There is a famous JIM 83 thread awhile back somewhere on these hallowed boards.
  11. If you have to ask you can't afford it. Damn Filter. Another awesome thread and you haven't even got to the good stuff!
