I noticed today that I've now made over 2,000 mug templates for Ooga Mooga!

There is still tons to do, but I keep chipping away at it each week as I have time.

Thanks to everyone for contributing pictures and information on your collections!

A Word on Ooga Mooga !! This is our old pal Trader Tom Morgan a long time Tiki Centralite. When our Dear friend Tiki Kate passed away Tom took over Editing and Creating Templates for Ooga Mooga.com If your not familiar with what Ooga Mooga is, it's a data base for Tiki Mug Collectors. Ooga Mooga was created by Humuhumu Trott it allows mug collectors to store information about their collections, trade and sell mugs, and share their collections with others. New mugs are being added to Ooga-Mooga continually.
Humu of course kicked it all off, Kate poured years of love and time into the site as well. Then came Trader Tom, Tom holds a Ph.D in American Literature making research and writing as a whole a snap for Tom, besides the fact that he is also a grade A mug collector himself and has the ability to move very quickly and accurately through the facts.
When Tom picked up making templates in 2010 the template count was 4,259, and today 4/6/16 there is 8,074 meaning to date Tom has made 3,815 templates.
I want to say Thank You to Humuhumu Trott for Ooga Mooga and for entrusting Trader Tom Morgan to write templates for Ooga Mooga it seems to be a thankless job but an important one. Tom keeps us up to date daily with all the new tiki mugs and bowls that have been released and these days it seems that EVERYDAY there are new ones. Imagine if no one was making new templates, can you? It's very time consuming a part time job in fact. So Thank You Tom to the bottom of my tiki mug! Cheers!
I Urge all Tikiphiles and Mug Collectors to SAY THANKS

Well said Kelly. It was just last night i messaged Tom and asked him to add/update a template and the only reason i think it wasn't done right away was because he had asked me (within a couple of hours) to provide him with a little bit more information before he went ahead with it.

So yes, a big thank you to Humuhumu for creating such a fantastic site (I'm looking forward to the revamped version), and a big thank you to Trader Tom for taking over the reins after the passing of Tiki Kate and for the continuous work keeping on top of, not just all of the new mugs that are being released these days, but also adding templates to those that have been around for a while but never had one.

Thank you Tom for taking up the gauntlet! I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into (and has gone into) making and keeping up Ooga-Mooga. My collection would probably not be near as fun if it wasn't for OM and TC

Thanks, everyone! Working on Ooga Mooga is a lot of fun. I compare it to tending a garden or working on a big puzzle. I'm always pleasantly surprised by new vintage mugs that pop up and the creativity of current artists!
