Thanks & mail group

Hi, I'm Vox —one of the folks who three years ago helped launch this non-commercial fork of Camerapedia,. I notice you've been making a lot of useful wiki edits recently, and that's great!

You probably already know about the wiki's Flickr discussion area …but there is also a small Google Groups mailing list where active wiki editors can talk amongst themselves about planning, policy, etc. I would warmly like to invite you to join this group (which has very little traffic, until a specific issue comes up).

The future of is facing a bit of a crisis right now. In 2011, preserving the independence of Camerapedia was an emergency situation and Steevithak and I took large roles during that crisis. But neither of wanted to be "in charge," and in the past year we've both moved on to other interests. The wiki can really use some help right now in maintaining a healthy future, and the Google group might be a good place to discuss future options. The most urgent need is finding a more reliable hosting situation, and publicizing the need for ongoing donations to pay those costs.

It's also possible within the MediaWiki software to give certain editors more administrative powers. If that is a responsibility you might like to take on, please feel free to mention it.

All best from Ann Arbor, USA

New pictures

Hi! Thanks for some excellent pictures recently! I didn't expect we'd ever get a picture for some of those articles! Cheers! --Dustin McAmera (talk) 15:31, 24 September 2014 (PDT)

My pleasure! Museums are the best way to know those rare and primitive cameras. But I wish I had a better digital camera, the picture quality is not always very good.
