Work For Forum Get Paid in Denarii
« on: February 14, 2002, 10:29:54 am »
Did you know you can work for Forum and get paid in denarii.  Well, sort of... we actually pay in FORVM dollars, which you can use to buy denarii. You can use FORVM dollars to pay for up to 50% of any purchase from FORVM. In other words, if you have $20 FORVM dollars credit and you buy a $30 coin, you can use $15 of your FORVM dollars toward the purchase. Forum Dollars expire in 90 days, but only if you have not purchased anything from Forum for 90 days. If you place an order at least once every three months, your FORVM dollars will never expire. So, you may be asking, how do I earn these FORVM dollars?

Refer someone to FORVM and on their first order they put your name and email address in the comments and note that your referred them, you get $10 in FORVM dollars.

Find a coin in our catalog attributed incorrectly (a significant error), we pay $10 in FORVM dollars.

Find an error in a coin description get $3 for the first coin and $1 for each coin of the same type with the same error.

Find a broken link, typo, spelling error or other error and get $3 in FORVM dollars. This does not apply to the Discussion Board, NumisWiki, Gallery, Fake Coin Report or Hosted Sites (material not created by Forum).

Adding fake coin reports - $2 FORVM dollars each if you submit 25 or more in a month. Note, you don't need expertise to submit fake coin reports. Simply go through the threads on the discussion board, find confirmed fakes that have not yet been added to the fake coin reports and add them. To claim your Forum dollars send us an email with your total at the end of the month (email, not private message, and at the end of the month only).  

Submit an article related to ancient coins or history on NumisWiki and we may pay you up to $100 Forum dollars. To receive Forum dollars, your article must be original, references cited, and include a minimum of one full page of text. Most articles will earn $50 Forum dollars. We may pay up to $100 Forum dollars for a longer, well-written, entertaining and informative article. We prefer articles use coin photographs from our catalog or the author's own collection. If any photographs are obtained from other sources, the author must obtain permission from the owner of the image and note the permission on the NumisWiki page. We may edit your article and we decide how much we will pay. To claim your Forum dollars for a NumisWiki article, please include your name on the NumisWiki page and send us an email to let us know you have added the article to NumisWiki.

To use your FORVM dollars, just place an order. They will automatically be deducted from your order.  FORVM dollars do not apply to auctions or orders placed anywhere but our www.forumancientcoins.com catalog. There are no limits on the amount of FORVM dollars you can earn or use but they do expire after 90 days.

Corrections, etc. should be emailed to CustomerService@forumancientcoins.com. Articles should be added to NumisWiki and then send us an email. Please do not use a discussion board personal message to me to claim FORVM dollars.

What about attributing a unattributed coin in the catalog, or is that for the person who buys the coin to do?

We sell unattributed coins because people like to buy unattributed coins.  Most of the unattributed Roman we could attribute, then copy and paste an old description, modify if necessary, and put in the catalog attributed all within a minute or two.   We really don't need help with them.

Ask Joe beforehand if you'll get anything and how much it will be.
It's not an automatic process and Numiswiki, being a 'Wiki' is something collectors do for collectors,
not something you get paid for.

Although we prefer free articles ( :) ), we will pay Forum dollars.  If you want Forum dollars, after the article is up on NumisWiki, send us an email with your username and the article's title.

I can say I thought Joe was very generous for my article. And I got to spend Forvm bucks on some campgates and books, my two loves.
On that topic, honestly, the campgates I got here were BY FAR the best ones from any site. One in particular was amazing, even better than it looked in the photo, and it looked mighty good there. thanks Joe!

Does this include SOLD items in the catalog?
I would report any errors I find regardless, but earning a few FORVM Bucks along the way would be cool.  8)

I have made a couple changes...

Find an error in a coin description, get $3 for the first coin and $1 for each coin of the same type with the same error.

This clarifies that if there multiple errors on a single coin listing we consider them all part of the same error and only pay $3.  

We were paying $3 each coin with the same copy and paste error.  It was just costing too darn much, so I have reduced the duplicates to $1 per coin.

Hi Joe,

     Just wondering... am I splitting hairs or an error?

     In the introduction to Scarabs, you show a Scarabaeus venerabilis (with ribbed or striped elytra), then use the term Scarabaeus sacer to begin paragraph 2.
     For S. venerabilis, see:

1.   Bothmer, Bernard V. Scarabaeus Venerabilis in Bulletin of the Museum of Fine Arts. Boston, December 1950, Vol. XLVII, No. 274, pp. 86 and 87, figs. 1 and 2.
2.   Petrie, W.M.F.   Scarabs and Cylinders with Names, British School of Archaeology in Egypt and Egyptian Research Account 21st Year, 1915; London, 1917, page 7.

Thanks.
Russ

Do you mean here: https://www.forumancientcoins.com/numiswiki/view.asp?key=scarabs?

That is an article written by Alex Malloy and Peter Sharrer, and I think it is OK as it is.  

NumisWiki articles are contributed by our members and we don't pay Forum dollars for corrections to NumisWiki.  As a member, all you have to do is be logged in and click edit to make changes.  Certainly the pages on scarabs can be corrected, improved, and expanded.  I would be greatful for any improvements you make.

Hi Joe,
     The article is fine, it is the illustration that is not. Its like writing an article about Fort automobiles and using illustrations of Chevrolets. Since they are both automobiles, I suppose it doesn't really matter, a car is a car...

Since you seem to know about scarab beetles, and anyone can edit the numiswiki, why don't you put it right? I get annoyed when I see an article about honeybees and they illustrate it with a bumblebee or a wasp, so I know how you feel!

Hello,

This probably doesn't count, but there's an error in the 'Beginner's Guide to the Collection of Ancient Coins' page:

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/numiswiki/view.asp?key=Ancient%20Coin%20Collecting%20101

Instead of "Beginner's", it says "Beginner's". This might just be my computer, but I thought I'd point it out anyway.

Thanks!

Numiswiki is a wiki, which means anyone can change pages. You can correct that yourself.  And, of course the credits do not apply to pages that anyone can modify.

To make some quick Forum Dollars, add Fake Coin Reports for the fakes on this page....

https://www.ebay.com/sch/apoloarcheolgy/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

If you add 25 reports, you get $50 FORVM dollars.
