Thank you Lester!
« on: May 18, 2012, 07:31:53 AM »

Just had look at Lester's databases of all the TOTM/ThOTM performances on this page. What an amazing resource this is!  Must have taken you a very long time Lester.  Thank you!!!!

Thanks Les

I need to invest some time to get it up to date. I blame The Sainted Mrs Bailey's addiction to editing RAW image files all night, every night. Mind you seems worthwhile.

Due to my inability/disinclination to keep them up to date and the fact that they needed a major revision to remove all the dead links (mostly onmvoice) I have removed the links. Sorry.

Fully understand your reason for withdrawing links, and  appreciate that the admin would only continue to grow. Is it worth considering leaving them up with no further updates?

Lester's index to TOTM is a very handy enhancement to mel.net. If there's anything I can do to help share the workload, please let me know.

Raw image files - now there IS dedication to one's craft. But once you get down to that level the time really flies.
There is a nice photo of you there. Not too heavily edited, by the look of it.  ;D

from what I can see browsing online its possible to get wiki modules that integrate with smf. I guess that such packages would normally provide administrative monitoring and recovery, in case of accidental (or even deliberate) wreckage by members.

We did try a wiki extension some time ago for a different purpose.  It was hacked by persons unknown despite being updated regularly, so I would be reluctant to go down that path again as an extension to melnet.

If someone, or a group of people wanted to get together and set up such a database independently there would be no problem in setting up links with melnet.

Well, I can touch type and know a bit of HTML.  Actually, you can edit HTML pages reasonably well in Word these days.  How it is best done is another question, however.  Links to PDFs, one searchable, downloadable file?
