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.

It would be great to see some conversions which take account of more than one system - for example converting mass AND currency exchange rates, so I can convert a price for a grocery item from dollars per pound to euros per kilo, or GBP per kilo, (or any other currency) in one simple conversion.

Thanks for the idea! Actually we thought about it, but could not come up with an easy to understand layout for such a calculator. The number of combinations for two-systems conversions is huge and creating a separate calculator for each combination is not feasible.

Another problem I see is that the "conversion" from Euro to Dollars is not fixed (it fluctuates over time - sometimes you get more dollars for your Euro and sometimes less) whereas you always get exactly the same amount of pound for you kilogram.
