Hi all,

just a small status update for all those wondering why nothing is happening.

We are actually working hard to bring the database online as soon as possible.
Meanwhile we are creating the website around the database sticking to the designs published earlier.

We are looking forward to start a beta phase of the database in the coming weeks.

That's it for now,


PS: If you want a sneak peak preview of the website visit but be warned this page is still work in progress  ;)

Thanks for the link, didn't know that such huge amounts of food are served on a single cruise.

What do you think about the new website we are going to build?

Hi Tom,
Thanks for your support

As it looks for now, Micke from Fakta om fartyg won't be able to give us his photos because of copyright reasons. But I'll try to contact him on the written data which would be a good starting point for our database.
Once the database frame is finished everyone who wants will be able to contribute his knowledge. For this step, of course we will need some Moderators/Reviewers who check the data.
A Wiki could be a possible solution but I'm aiming for something more specialised. Therefore I'm already discussing the possible solutions with a company which does professional web design.

I'll post some more info on how I intend to do the database later.

But you can already help us now by letting the ship community know that this project exists. So if you have any friends or contacts who could be interested in this project please tell them about it.

Kind regards,

Thanks for your support PetranPireotis - we will need as many photos and videos as we can get.

But for the moment we need to inform as many people as possible that this forum exists. So if you have any contacts with people who could be interested in creating this database please let them know. Since this is a community project: The more people we are the better the database will be.  ;)

Sounds good so far.

Regarding the system: I have already got a server for the site which will do it for the moment. Later on we should maybe use multiple servers for the site to prevent what happened to fakta om fartyg last year when the whole site went down deu to server problems.

Here you can post ideas and suggestions for the database project.

As we have not even started development there are no impossible whishes at the moment - just tell us everything that comes into your mind when you think about creating a ship database.
