today I'd like to tell you that over the last couple weeks since I last published a message here I have added 1334 new pictures to the website. That increased the numbers of models with atleast one picture by 779 to 13117. 200-300 of those were given to me by collectors who have my and I assume all our thanks.
But there's more. Since I finally managed to work through my pile of pictures I have found the time to do some programming. I used this time to do the long overdue phyiscal split between the German and the English version of the website. For 99.5% of you nothing changes and you probably won't even see a difference unless you look closely at the URL. However switching languages didn't work properly in the past and search engines couldn't find the German version of the website for some time now. It was quite bad for the ranking on f.e. google.de . That meant however that I had to switch around many files and change the whole structure of how files are organized.
This again means that some things might have broken. If you see anything that does not look right or even dead links. Please tell me. I did some thourough testing, but sometimes you don't get them all.
Since the URL has changed slightly I created a forwarding for old links. If you're clicking on an old link and you're not seeing what you're expecting to see, please send me the link so I can check it.
The second probably more interesting new feature for you is that you can now view any search result as a picture galery! Just click on the link on the top right of list of models. There is no limit to how many are shown so if your search result included a lot of entries it might be a bit of work for your device. Please let me know if there are any problems especially on older systems. I could probably split longer lists into several pages if necessary.
Hope you like the changes. Happy collecting & stay safe.
