Only problem with that is vehicles with long names in museums with long names have already used up all the characters in the 'subject' box. Adding 1 or 2 for an '*' is ok, but adding 4 or 5 for '315 -' is not an option.

I'll find some way to abbreviate the rest of the title, so it isn't an issue. Since the information is in the thread, shortening vehicle names should not be a serious problem.

Now up to:

827 individual vehicles are listed
330 of these have individual topics
317 of these are recorded in pmvrp.com

And I have a load that I have gleaned from a variety of private websites and am merely awaiting permission before making topics.

We should have a celebration for the 1,000th vehicle entered.

I've added a few to the database without adding the topic yet, so we're actually up to 334 in the database.

If I have the time, I'll freshen up the design in time for the 1000th vehicle.

You're welcome to post them either in this thread, or in one of the other sections. Armour is always nice :)

We're happy to annouce that the project webpage has a new and much better design. Go check it out at http://www.pmvrp.com/

In addition to the improved and more user-friendly design, there are a couple of new features: The first is a photograph of each vehicle and museum (when available - if you have a photograph of a vehicle or museum does not currently have a photograph on the website, please send upload it to the appropriate thread). The second is the addition of a description for each location. While most of the museums doesn't have a description yet, we will add these as we go along.

If you're looking for a couple of examples of pages with photographs, you can look at the Matilda Mk II at the Musée Royal de l'Armé, the pink T-34-85 in London and the Imperial War Museum London.

Just a quick thought - should we credit the photos?
(admittedly they are mostly mine at the moment ;) )

I've added the possibility of adding a caption at a later time in the database, though for now, I was thinking that the credits in the thread would suffice?

I'm happy to not credit it, though we should have the option to do so if any individual contributer would prefer us to do so.

True. It will be added in the future too (but until we have more than 50 photographs, it's not the most important priority ;))

I have added cross-referencing into the 'Czech vehicles' topic to other LT vz.35 & LT vz.38 varients (German & Romanian types).
Is this a good idea, and should I put similar cross-references in the German and Romanian topics?

It'd probably be a good idea to link 'both ways', if that's what you mean :)
