Our coin glossary is back up and running. You should be able to add new terms and search for existing words without troubles.
I also added a new numismatic term, spiked head. What is a spiked head you ask? Michael Coulson from the Facebook group, Coin Seekers, explained it to me as, "A Spiked head is a crack going from the rim of the coin into the skull. There are hundreds of them. Some are very radical. I collect them." Below is a photo I got from Michael of a 1952 Horned Head which is pretty neat:
As of right now there's 131 listings for Coins with spikes on eBay and the prices range from just a couple of dollars for a spiked Roosevelt dime to thousands of dollars for some half cents dating back to the early 19th century.
Special thanks to double mike for bringing the Coin Seekers group to my attention! I've been getting to see some pretty cool coins and there are some very knowledgeable members there.

Great news! Coin Photos can now be entered into the database.
As some of you are already aware, I've got a store on eBay that keeps me pretty busy. With it being the holiday season, the store becomes more demanding. I will continue getting this site back to where it was though the biggest hurdles were done.
We're still getting a few spam bots that are signing up for the site but it's not nearly as bad as it was before I updated the site (we were getting 3,000 new spam bots joining per day). Hopefully the spam will stay as low as it is and then all of this upgrading will have been worth it!
Thank you again to all who've joined and contributed to the site as well as to those who continue to spread the word about CoinBrag. This site would not exist without your help!
P.S. there's been too many maintenance news posts! We need some coin articles and I have a couple yet to be published so expect that in the next few days.

So the good news is we can once again add coins and prices to the database. Unfortunately, its not possible to upload photos just yet. I'm hoping to have that fixed as soon as possible. From there, the other issues should be minor and easily fixed.

Well we're now on the new server. There were some technical delays with the new server but it's working fine now. I haven't tested all of CoinBrag's features yet but I'll be doing that over the next day or two. Some things might not look 100% as they were right now but they should all be good by the end of this weekend.
I do apologize for the extended downtime of the site. I had not expected us to be down for a week. Luckily every coin, photo and post was saved.
UPDATE: It looks like at the moment it's not possible to add coins or prices to the site. I'll get this working ASAP stay tuned...

CoinBrag will likely be down for the next day or two. Our current hosts software doesn't seem to like modern programming code. So I need to work to get things integrated or find a new place to have CoinBrag hosted.
Hopefully I'll have this fixed by the weekend.
Update for 11/05/13: We are dealing with FTP connection issues via the new host. I am working with tech support to get this resolved as soon as possible.
