My tiki matchbooks... waiting patiently for the day to come that they can be in Ooga-Mooga.

Ooga-Mooga launched nearly seven years ago (whoa!). Thanks to you guys adding all of your beautiful collections (and oh so many pictures, almost 70,000 of them!), it has grown into an outstanding resource for tikiphiles.

There’s so much to love about it… it’s fantastic for learning more about tiki mugs and other collectibles, seeing what others are finding for their collections, trading and connecting with other tikiphiles, all that great stuff. It’s so lovely to get lost exploring everyone’s collections on Ooga-Mooga, and you guys make it fun.

But not everything about Ooga-Mooga is loveable, and frankly, you guys deserve something better…

Ooga-Mooga is getting a much-needed overhaul!
To learn about what's in store for Ooga-Mooga, please read the full announcement at Ooga-Mooga:
Ooga-Mooga is Ooverdue for an Ooverhaul

FWIW, i'm very happy to read this announcement! I was just thinking today how I ought to get my new mugs added and at the same time dreaded doing so.

Looking forward to seeing the new site.

Knowing just how much work goes into a website upgrade like this

to a remodeled Ooga-Mooga.

I just woke up and saw the announcment to this on Facebook. Personally i find the site quite easy to use already. I do understand that after seven years it might be time for an upgrade, i just hope that the 'improvements' are for the better and not worse. I definitely agree with some of things mentioned that could/will make the site more user friendly although there's also a couple i'm not sure about. Especially a name change. I like the idea of being able to add other tiki related paraphernalia like matchbooks, postcards, etc. Either way, i'm confident Humuhumu will do a good job.

Mahalo for all the support, guys!

Beachbumz -- being able to add multiple photos at once is definitely on the list, though it may not be in place by the time of launch. The biggest gain out of this, though, is that new features like that will be much easier to add, so it's coming, for sure!

swizzle -- I understand, considering a name change felt weird to me at first, too. But I've been using the new name long enough now that it feels weird to call it "Ooga-Mooga"! It'll sit a little funny at first, as these things do, but I think that with time and patience, the new name will grow on you, too.

Ooga Mooga is also overdue for an Overture! Of praise! Although I am not an active collection sharer and trader, I have many times fallen back on it for my research, or to just communicate about a certain mug in question. Especially when I am in Europe, it is always a trusty tool. Thank You Humu for all your work and commitment to Tiki, and I can't wait for the new christening!

Im with Sven on this one. Im not a active user either. But it is cool to fall back on and do some research on mugs and some other things that you find. You have done a great job HumuHumu. Mahaloz for all your hard work.

I am very excited about all the up-grades. However, I too like the current name, but it is your baby.

Great news! If the database is heading towards having more than just mugs it makes sense to change the name.
