What People Say About My Website Project
Here are a few examples of feedback I have received from my visitors:
Just had to tell you what a great site you've got. Comprehensive and in-depth. I can't imagine how you manage doing that along with your hunting and your normal career. And all free too! I've seen some sites who are trying to sell the same information (i.e. "Inside secrets of the professionals, Secrets they don't want you to know) and I would seriously doubt they would come close to what you are offering. I'm only about 3 months into this hobby and am of course just beginning to learn (Garrett ACE 250) but I've printed out several sections from your site for study. I'm sure they'll give my hunting efforts a great boost. One question out of curiosity, do you still feel the Minelab E-trac is your best overall detector? [yes, I do! - S.T.]
"Hey Sergie! Your webside makes a huge difference! After I have browsed the web and visited many websites on metal detecting, I gotta tell you, I think your website is a valuable "keeper" in this "webfield" that is full of junk - websites that fill up their pages with multiple keywords but do not give any useful or in-depth information! They claim to be the most resourceful while posting a bunch of empty links and no photos of real finds! To me, it was upsetting to realize that there were no real treasure hunters behind those pages. Visiting your web page was like a breath of fresh air because you are a true treasure hunter and have done a great job sharing your experience and knowledge, inspiring others, and telling the truth! Thank you so much!!! You are the Man!
Your website is fantastic! It has inspired me to really start metal detecting more, I have always been fascinated.
The story of your silver coin hoard was about the most amazing thing I have ever read, my eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw all the pictures, it must have been AMAZING :) Congratulations! You deserve that success because of the hard work.
Thanks for the useful tips on the website they are excellent to the beginner like me.
"I have to thank you for the best website I have seen on this hobby. I wish there were more sites like yours! Your idea on using old postcards gave me the information on the band stand in a park closed in the late 1800's. It is a small island, and I'm gonna search it in the spring when the weeds are down low.
Went out today and found a 1944 wheat penny (whoopie) but it's a find. I would love to make it down to Poland, visit Auschwitz and a few other places.
My wife saw your web site and said, "what does he do for a living?" I said, "Does it matter he sure is having fun." She was impressed too on the detail and how it all went together. You have done an outstanding job so keep up the great work.
I really loved reading about the "..." [I had to omit the abbreviation of the WW2 military organization - S.T.] Isn't it interesting how so much evil can keep going after all those years. I haven't read everything on your site but I believe it's one of the best out there. Hope to have it all read soon, love the history part.
Glad you enjoyed the pictures hope to send you some of my finds soon. I will be planning and saving for the big trip next year.
Keep up the great web site and good hunting!
Paul A. Rainey"
