I agree that some posts do not really fit in with the purpose of this thread - it was meant to stop all the "is my marker rare" questions, not create another place for that question to be asked!
Unfortunately, lots of people want to believe that their Ego is rare, and don't seem to want to trust that if their marker isn't listed, it isn't rare. So they then ask if their marker should be listed.....
Neither of course is it meant to be another picture thread, but with members having been invited to post pictures of markers that they think have been forgotten from the list, there is something of a grey area, both in terms of the "rare" question, and the posting of pictures.
I've been removing the more obviously out of place posts, but due to the grey area that I have mentioned, I've not weeded the thread too aggressively.
