Welcome to PurseForum! There is a wealth of information here - styles, leathers, colours, member experiences with sellers, obtaining items, and reveals. We don't encourage shallow obsessing for nothing! To that end, a few details that will make your membership here as much fun as possible. We realize that because there is so much information, it can be a bit overwhelming at first. The search function is a great way to see if something has already been discussed, and to do some research. Please try to do a search before starting a new thread. There is a forum-wide search option at the top left of your screen. You can also search within the Hermes forum itself, or within threads. The Hermes moderators (that would be me, Mistikat, CobaltBlu and Ms Piggy) are here to help you. Don't hesitate to private message us if you have any questions. There is no buying/selling/trading or offering to buy for others permitted here. So please do not ask to buy from other members or post links to items you may have for sale on other sites. Members are happy to offer authentication but we do ask that you please only post in the authentication threads and read the first post in each authentication one (scarves, accessories and bags) so that you can post correctly and have your question answered in the most timely way. Please also note we don't discuss the features that make an item authentic (or not). That includes craftsman's stamps, their placement, blind stamps, hardware, etc. We do ask that members treat each other respectfully at all times. If a particular member is someone whose posts you would prefer not to read, use the ignore feature. Click on the person's member name to the left of their posts. You will see a drop down menu. At the bottom, select "add (name of member) to ignore list." Please use the report button (located at the bottom of everyone's avatar) if you feel that a member is posting spam, breaking the forum rules, or that the post should be handled by a moderator. Please don't confront other members - moderators are happy to step in and handle the situation. Forum rules (and there aren't that many!) can be found here: http://forum.purseblog.com/announcement.php?f=6&a=8 Information on how to post photos can be found here: http://forum.purseblog.com/feedback-dropbox/posting-photos-25.html Most of all, have fun. And thanks for stopping by!
