Well, I am over here. I am glad to see some friends from the old forum as well as a number of brand new members.
I have been an OMSA member for over 40 years and a frequent contributor to the journal over these years. I was also a participant on the old forum (the #1 poster, though these posts are now MIA) and was
a moderator for some of the sub-fora there and for the database (and am saddened to see that most of what I and others did with the database over the last few months is now "disappeared").
My coillecting forcus is Indian and other South Asian awards (both before and after independence in 1947), though I maintain other collecting distractions as well (Mongolia, Soviet Union, the Arab World, etc.). Relevant to my collecting focus, I maintain the http://sagongs.ipbhost.com/
forum (send me an e-mail should you wish to join) and co-authored with Rana Chhina the major work on post-1947 Indian decorations and medals. My collecting focus grows out of my professional focus as a university professor of history (now retired) with a specialization on Modern South Asia.
