i've just listed many of my shakers on ooga mooga under the heading other mugs. i hope humuhumu, or anyone else, doesn't object. i noticed someone else had done this, too. maybe a new category for shakers is needed. if asked by humuhumu, i'll remove them. check them out here: http://www.ooga-mooga.com/cgi-bin/all/collection.cgi?mode=gallery&user_id=120&rep=yes&tag=shakers&show=80

I have grand plans for Ooga-Mooga to become a spot for all sorts of Poly Pop collectibles, but it really is supposed to just be for mugs right now until I can do it properly. I've tried to discourage people from adding non-mug items, for a few different reasons, but largely because there has to be some sort of parameters for what belongs and what doesn't -- after all, what's to keep someone from adding their Beanie Baby collection? Overall, it's a quibbly thing, though.

Ooga-Mooga is overdue for some of my love & attention (can you believe it's been going for a whole year now???). Right now, another project is atop my mighty project-pile, but it's very near the top, and I hope to tackle it in the coming month or two. The use of Ooga-Mooga has been simply massive, and there's a clear desire for it to be bigger and better than it currently is.

I won't be able to automatically transfer your non-tiki-mug items into the new database structure once it's in place, and I worry that if people have invested a lot of time into getting their non-mug collectibles in, they won't be willing to re-enter them properly. That would make me a sad little tikiphile.

So, please, please, pretty, pretty please, hold off on entering your non-mug tiki items until Ooga-Mooga is better equipped to handle them. You'll be rewarded with a much cooler and easier to use Ooga-Mooga!

Humuhumu, I just wanted to say that I love what you've done so far and can't wait for the new, improved, and expanded version of the site that will come some day.

One question for you, if you don't mind. Is there any way to get the mugs titles to appear correctly right away? For instance, I just added the Mauna Loa cauldron mug a few days ago and it just says "Other Mug" as it's title.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

There are many, many items that don't have specific profiles yet. So until she has the time to make a bunch of new specific profiles, there will be lots that will just show up under "glassware", "other mug", or "tiki mug". I can't imagine the rather daunting task of trying to create new mug templates for the rather large number of mugs and other items that don't yet have their own unique template.

Maybe this issue is one that could be fixed in the future version of ooga mooga. I can't even imagine one person having to update each specific mug profile one at a time. Talk about time consuming! I'm sure Humuhumu would rather be out by the pool sipping Mai Tai's than coming up with mug profiles.

I noticed you were from Seattle, Monkeyskull and I bought a set just like yours but yellow and only two last time I was out in the NW, found them in a Tacoma antique shop. Do you know anything about them?
