Hi,
Somebody asked me in private to summarize this activity. Therefore I decided to post this thread earlier than planned.

Maybe you have recognised the activity in the museum:
Attachment:
2013Juli2.png
2013Juli2.png [ 7.1 KiB | Viewed 785 times ]

This was possible because my image editing team grew up to four persons and I tried my best to keep them busy.

The bad news: The highest index of an entry in the museum is currently 4162. "Only" 150 additional items the last thread.
The good news: I added ca. 750 images. Some replaced older smaller images from the time before twistypuzzles.com. Most images enhanced existing entries.
During the process I learned to hate soviet era puzzles with their many different body colors.

I took most of these additions from other online galleries whose owners were happy to contribute. Most prominent are
- Jaap Scherphius
- The Jerry Slocum collection

Somehow I am happy that Georges Helm doesn't contribute. He alone could keep me and the editors busy for half a year minimum. Maybe he want to change that. He owns at least 200 books missing in the museum.

Best regards
Andreas

All Hail Andreas and his crew, the undisputed king of TwistyPuzzles Museum administration!

Inspirational work!

Dave

It is impossible to get tired stating the importance of Andreas taking over the progress
of the Museum. It was a project which was stuck (in some sense) and he managed to
bring it again forward adding incredible new amounts of puzzles.

Of course, there are other people who also did their own important part, with Andreas
being the leader of this movement.

I thank you all, as it has become richer than ever, and we are even prouder to have here
such a database!

:)

Thank you two. (Does this make sense in english?)
Thank you too.

Lets see when I reach some point where I could consider this task finished.
Every time I see the TODO list shrunken down to only a few item I see that one of the point reads "crawl through Georges collection"
One topic on the todo list => work for months. Sometimes it is depressing.
