Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

apparently your site states that 74oz is 2.302 kg as well as 2.302 g. would upload screen shot but don't know how. how do we know that your other conversions are not flawed as well.

The ounce conversions for mass are correct. Note there are 2 ounce designations, the Avoirdupois and Troy ounces. The standard ounce for weight used here in the USA is the Avoirdupois ounce, where 1 oz = 28.349 523 125 grams exactly.

Your looking at the Troy ounce, where 1 ounce = 31.103 476 8 grams exactly. The Troy ounce is used worldwide but almost exclusively for precious metals.
