To set the proper mood for this post, I suggest playing Pablus' "My Mug Collection" while you're reading.



It is with great excitement that I introduce Ooga-Mooga, a new website dedicated to letting you show off your fantastic mug collections.

Setting up your mug collection in Ooga-Mooga is easy:

  1. Choose a mug you have from the list of pre-defined mugs
  2. Click the "Add this mug to my Collection" link
  3. Press the "Add This Mug to My Collection" button to confirm

And there it is in your collection! Now you can enter in a little information about your mug -- where you got it, what condition it's in, upload a few photos of it -- and before you know it you've got a lovely showcase of your beautiful mug collection.

Here's my collection:
Humuhumu's Mug Collection

Ooga-Mooga lets you do all sorts of stuff:

  • Keep a wish-list of your favorite must-have mugs
  • Identify mystery mugs
  • Shop for mugs for sale and trade by other Ooga-Mooga members
  • List your eBay mug auctions on Ooga-Mooga (with up-to-date auction info direct from eBay!)
  • Share a link that goes directly to your own collection
  • Track the estimated value of your collection
  • Learn what size drink fits well in each mug
  • Compare your mug to the mugs in other collections
  • See how much a particular mug is going for
  • Keep your mugs private, if you're shy about your collection


Your user name on Ooga-Mooga is the same as your user name here on Tiki Central, but the password system is separate. When you create your Ooga-Mooga account, it will send you a PM here on TC with a link to confirm that it really is you. Then you're ready to go! A link to your mug collection will appear below your name on your posts on Tiki Central.

You'll start out with a Free Trial account. That lets you keep information on up to 10 mugs.

If you like Ooga-Mooga (and boy I hope you do!), you can sign up for a full account, with either Standard status or Trader status:

Standard:

  • No limit to the number of mugs in your collection
  • Use Favorites to keep a wish list of mugs
  • $3.95 per month*


Trader:

  • Full access to Ooga-Mooga
  • No limit to the number of mugs in your collection
  • Use Favorites to keep a wish list of mugs
  • List mugs available for trade in the Mugs for Trade section
  • Advertise your eBay mug auction in the Mugs for Sale section
  • Use Ooga-Mooga to store photos of mugs you're selling
  • $5.95 per month*

For a limited time, when you sign up with a Trader account, your first six months are only $3.95, the same price as a Standard account!

* These are introductory rates. If you subscribe to a Standard or Trader account before August 31, 2005, you won't be subject to any rate increases for 2 years!

Awesome H2! The site looks great! If you need images of stuff you don't have, let me know, I'll be glad to fill in the gaps (if I can). Looks like your big images are around 300 x 600. I can even do the black background in photoshop for consistency. Let me know if I can help.

Thanks Matt! The images in Ooga-Mooga belong to the users and not to me--each user uploads images of their own collection. When people are looking for their mug in the list of mugs, they get to see any images that people have uploaded. That helps them figure out which mug is the one to add to their collection. So just by using Ooga-Mooga, you can help everyone identify their mugs!

I,ve said it before, and i'll say it a few times more, I love mugs. Its a good idea and I signed up the second that I saw the banner. Its sounds like it could be the new TC Ebay.

I bet that more people are going to be buying up a ton of mugs because of this. I'm trying to upload a pic form shutterfly from , my pics, and its not working. its the Shutterfly size jpg. pictures.

Thanks for all the kind words, guys! I'm adding new mug templates as fast as I can, and I'll be dedicating a TON of time to that over the next week. It only takes me a moment to add each one, if you have mugs you'd like to add to the collection and I don't have a template for it yet, don't be shy about asking me to add one for you! The best way to ask me is to IM me at oogamoogamug on IM or YahooIM, or to email me at humuhumu@ooga-mooga.com.

Unfortunately, Shutterfly resizes & crops the images so that they're too small for me to use -- instead of grabbing them down from your Shutterfly album, upload them from the original files your camera took, and it should work fine. If you're still having trouble, contact me and I'll see if I can help you through it.

Thanks Humu! What a fantastic idea!
That was the extra kick in the bum I needed to start photographing all of my mugs.

Not a valid image file: Warning 310: Must specify image size (\Documents and Settings\Ming\My Documents\My Pictures\ebay\New Folder\ebayuse\gecko.jpg).

Thats what I get when I try to upload my gecko mug pic.

Wacky! I haven't had any trouble uploading pictures myself, so it'll take a little troubleshooting. Can you email the picture you're trying to me at humuhumu@ooga-mooga.com ? I'm sorry it's giving you guff, I'll work on getting this fixed, pronto!

I'm still troubleshooting TikiGardener's problem -- he emailed his photos to me and I was able to upload them without any trouble. Everyone else should go ahead and try using that Picture Upload, but if anyone else is having trouble getting photos uploaded, email the photos to me at humuhumu@ooga-mooga.com and I'll upload them for you.

Wow, I thought I was seeing things when I looked on TC this morning (had not had enough coffee yet)! Clicked on the link and wow! Looks cool.

Now - I didn't see the time limit on the trial run. How long? Not that I am questioning it I was just curious, I already signed up...... BTW - how long does the approval process take?
