What is this new shiny thing?
The GC Stamps, or GCS for short, is the Galaxy Cauldron Forums' own collectible. They are stamps you can gather and put into your "album" at the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Cool! What kinds of stamps are there and how do you collect them?
We have quite a few different types!



(achievement stamps)

You can collect this type of stamps by achieving things , you can collect and save them below
(like making x number of posts, earn x number of points, be a member for an x amount of time, etc).



(purchasable stamps)

You can buy this type of stamps from the OSA-P shop ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) using your GC points!
We also make old collectible stamps available here in case you miss them!
And finally, we also sell Stamp Booster Packs - a pack of random collectible stamps you can buy for a lower price, but you have no idea what you'll get! (Please be aware you are not guaranteed to get anything you haven't already got! But you can at least trade them away in that case!)




(collectible stamps)

You can get these the easiest; simply by logging in each day and visiting our [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].



Wait, did you say the Galleria? But only Lotus Crystal members can post there!
Not anymore! Now that the stamps have been officially launched, the galleria is open for everyone. No matter what your rank, you can make a thread there.

So which post does my "stamp album" go in the Galleria?
That thing called "Reserved for Future Events"! See, this is why it was necessary to save this spot! I hope you have, indeed, reserved it.





Achievements: 79
Purchasable: 35
Collectible: 312
Total Stamps Available: 425

Some stamps are not included in the count, such as random event stamps, goodie bag stamps, and stamps that were only available for a limited time by participating in an activity.

Before you go collecting-happy, please read the following rules. This is meant to be a fun thing for everyone, but as always, there are some things you need to abide by!


  • Stamp collecting is open to members of all ranks.
  • Only Collectible stamps are to be traded. Therefore, Achievement and Purchasable stamps cannot be traded.  This is because they require each member to earn things and spend their own points. There are also hidden achievement stamps and a few that admin will pass out, these also cannot be traded.
  • Just like sprites, purchasable stamps come from the Silver Millennium Emporium (Lotus ranked members only) and will change as time goes on. You can only purchase stamps that are currently displayed at the shop at the time of your purchase.
  • Collectible stamps are stamps you can collect once a day on the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
  • Please only put up stamps in your "album" that you have personally collected, achieved, or purchased. We are going to keep an eye on things, but for the most part we trust you to be honest about this. This is meant to be a fun activity, so let's not spoil that, shall we?
  • Stamps are ALLOWED in signatures, please read the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for details.

What?! You can Trade?!
Yep! That's right! The beauty of collecting daily means you may get the same stamp twice!
BUT never fear! Because there will be members who may have what you need!
This means you are free to trade collectible stamps with your fellow members!

Later on we will introduce RARE collectible stamps as well so be sure to keep an eye out!

Let's Get Trading!
It's a simple process that takes place over at the
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
To start there are 2 methods:

method 1 - Private Trade Agreements


  1. Private Message the person you are interested in trading with. In the private message list what stamp or stamps you would like from them and what you can offer them.
  2. If you receive one of these Private Messages, reply back letting them know if you accept and what from their offered list you'd accept.
  3. If negotiating is needed to find an acceptable balance between the two parties, continue as needed or null the trade.
  4. Please note that at anytime before a thread is started, one party may decline and exit the conversation.
  5.  Administrators will not interfere with trades in any regards via PMs nor will we make any one person trade.
  6. Once both parties are agreed upon, the member who initiated the trade will start a special trade thread in the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
  7. Simply Title the thread "Username 1 Trading With Username 2"
  8. With in the trade thread, username 1 will post the stamp or stamps they are trading.
  9. Username 2 will post they are trading as well, and say the deal is completed.
  10. Finally both members must update their stamps collection within 3 days or the trade will be void.





method 2 - Open Trade Agreements


  1. If you want to trade something or are looking for something specific but don't have a specific member in mind then start a thread in the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
  2. If you don't have anything in mind then title your thread: "OPEN TRADE: Username - No Specifics"
  3. If you are looking for a specific stamp then title your thread: "OPEN TRADE: Username - Looking for ####" (for example [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
  4. In the opening post state what you are willing to trade and if you are looking for anything.
  5. Members can then make offers of trade until the Opening user accepts. Once accepted change the title of the thread to "ENDED TRADE: Username"
  6. From then on, be sure to  follow steps 6 through 10.


2-For-1 GC Stamps Trading


What is this new trading system?
You may now trade two old collectible stamps from your collection for one stamp that you want (excluding the ones currently appearing this week). It is a system in order to help newbies build their collection more easily since it's impossible to trade for everything if you're really new!

Are these for collectible stamps only?
Yes, this system is still for collectible stamps only since they are the only ones that can be traded.

Can I trade in two identical stamps for a new one?
Yes, providing you actually do have two copies in your gallery.

How does this work then?
To trade in two of your old stamps for a new one, follow these steps:


  1. Post a trading thread like you usually do, only title it "[Your Username] 2-FOR-1 Trading Request". List the stamps you're trading in and the ones you wish to trade them for. If you have more than one pair of stamp(s) you'd like to trade in for a new one, you may include all of them in the same thread.
  2. Then Diana will post in the thread to give you your requested stamps, providing you follow all the rules.
  3. Once your new stamp(s) are given, you must then update your gallery to remove the ones you traded in within 3 days or the trade will be void.
