...should I, or should I not, capitalize the name of the [Ilani ? ilani] casino? ... Of course, the casino's web site (once you can get there) seems to be consistent with "i". ... For now, I am just using the shortest option "Ilani" in the thread index.



The seriousness with which you and some of the others collect chips embarasses me to admit my occasional, haphazard efforts to collect them myself. That said, the casino's own dice and chips use lower case, so one might reasonably conclude that to be correct.

As for your index -- especially if changing the "I" from upper- to lower-case changes its physical location or might result in it not being returned in a search -- your interest in being consistent may suggest using the capital "I" because you want your index to be as user-friendly as possible.

My 2 cents. Whichever you do, someone will say you did it wrong. But, as a writer, I favor user-friendly.

I believe the state of Washington lists the casino name (when it is not spelled with all caps) on their documents with the lower case.

I generally try to maintain a degree of consistency, but occasionally I act on whim. (You should see some of my inconsistencies at craps -- not just results, but also in style of play.)

Upon rethinking, I have changed that most recent entry to "ilani". As for user-friendliness, it's an extremely trivial matter, since the index is a completely manual setup. I could have Ilani or ilani appear in the index before Angel of the Winds, or even in with the chips from Africa and still have it link to the correct post. For now, though, it is indexed in its rightful place with the other Washington chips, between Great American and Last Frontier. If I were clever enough to know how to get the formatting and alphabetizing done in an automated fashion, I would have set that up years ago.

Just finished catching up from May! Sorry everyone I've been wanting to post my London chips from April but I'm in a battle of procrastination with PG and I'm winning. I moved back to the west coast late May and between settling in and work I haven't had time but fear not! I promise to post it by the end of July!

Is it that a challenge? I can procrastinate with the best of them, just ask Doc, he'll vouch for me on that one.

The ilani chip on the left has pretty legible impressions IMO. Zooming them, I would wager the design is a canoe paddle crossed with an eagle tail feather. These would both be pertinent to NWP tribes, and show up in their totems often.

Perhaps someone offered them a custom mold. No guess on the manufacturer.

Looking at each of the two crossed items separately, I can agree with your guesses. However, I have trouble understanding a design with a feather bigger than a canoe paddle. That's why I had guessed a paddle crossed with a canoe.

Just noticed on Facebook, Seneca made an announcement about collector chips with the band Kiss on them, five in total.

You are correct, But I think it's a paddle and a canoe, i filled one with some pencil to make it easier to see. Is there something I can look for to help identify the manufacturer?
