This is another update about the state of the museum.
Some days ago I reached another barrier and added the puzzle with key=3222.
When I started the highest key was 1611.
I want to thank all contributors and image editors.
New in this set of helpers is Frank Tiex who allowed me to use the images of his website.

I updated my member collection and thereby boosted myself to rank #7.
I am sure I could only go that high because Claus Wenicker hasn't entered his collection yet.
Shame on you Claus. :wink:

For the future: I am waiting for Sandy to implement a change we discussed heavily in the past weeks. Nothing earthshaking but something which will reduce a major problem with the museums structure.

I still have to few image editors.
Anyone who is willing to help, is welcome.

Has anyone any comments?

Excellent work as always Andreas, you are doing very valuable work for us all. And the quality of the edited images is excellent :wink:

I respect you in the community and for what you do for the database(I love it a lot.) that's why is hard to ask you to do this. I feel that I need to say this! I'm sorry if I offend you or step on your toes or cause you more work but I think all builders/makers/creators of a puzzle should share a entree like the one below. One was made by Anthony Greenhill, the other was made by Carter Tarrer and the last one that looks totally misleading is unknown. Why am I saying I think we should show respect to all of the builders/makers/creators that share the same puzzle.

What are your thoughts?

Yes. I would like to see an "all puzzles" button.
Thanks,
Letti

@Gus: The quality of the images is indeed very good. :mrgreen:

@Letti:
You really want e.g. a search option where all 3200 puzzles are shown?
The result would be something like this:

Your point is very interesting. It was good to bring it up. There are too few discussions about the museum.

Regarding the special case of the mastermorphix:
I am very unhappy about the fact that the mastermorphix still has inventor="Unknown". The Mastermorphix is one of those very old puzzle where the search for the first builder is a historicians job. I could trace it back into the time before 2000 but couldn't find an answer. However I am sure, that the first builder was neither Anthony Greenhill nor Carter. That is, why the field "inventor" is left blank in this case.
BTW: The misleading variant was made by me...

For the abstract topic of valuing designers:
The field "inventor" is reserved for the designer (in the days of CAD) or the first builder. There might be persons who invented/built a specific puzzle independently from others but I consider that as bad luck as it is with patents in real life.
How do you want to value the work of builder specifically? Should their names be mentioned in the items description? And who should track these names down?

Andreas

Thank you for your excellent, extensive and fast work.

Maybe Sandy should also change the title bar "Over 1700 puzzles". Although the statement is true :D

I'd love to see that also.

Hi Andreas
Thanks for the great work! :D
Is it possible to add links to the videos that the inventor made of the puzzle to present it?
Preferably all the links could be on a channel exclusively for TP Museum, so that they won't be removed and can be reported missing if anything goes wrong with one.

Every entry has the option to add a link. Look at the bottom of a specific entry. Everyone can use this feature to add links to videos for the specific entries. All I (the moderator) have to do is to accept the contribution if done right.
I do not have the power to change anything fundamentally in the museum.
Did this answer your question?
