Whew! It’s been an exciting day for the Typewriter Database. A group of Typewriter Hunters including yours truly has been jockeying for the top spots in the Hunters list on the front page. I tried my best, resorting to uploading parts machines and updating some of my old listings with new links and pictures, but it was for naught. TonS handily knocked me out of first place before I could make this post.
Well, Ok. Not for nothing. I earned myself a bunch of points with those updates. Yes, the points allocated for your Hunting activity on the Typewriter Database are now compiled nightly at 3am Arizona time, or will be when I get the cron job working properly. Currently, the points are compiled as so:
Gallery entry: +1 point each.
if it includes front-facing photo: +3 points.
if it includes type sample: +3 points.
each additional photo uploaded to gallery: +2 points each.
Links added anywhere on the site: +1 point each.
Additionally, I have database-ized the updates log for the Typewriter Database so now it’s easier for me to keep the updates logged, which should mean I’ll do it more. :D
The Updates Log is shown here, under “Updates and News”.
