Is this where I post my wish-list for the new version? Well, I'm doing it anyway!

Sounds like adding postcards and other ephemera is in the works. Please add a way for us to add a date for our item if it has one. i.e. I have this postcard in my collection and it is postmarked October 1965. That sort of data will help us figure out some dates for places and objects. And it isn't just postcards. I have matchbooks and menus that have dates penciled on them.

Now for the biggie! So, we're gonna get to put in postcards and matchbooks right? Well, that likely means there is an address and phone number printed there. If we can add that info, then that could meld with Critiki and make a true database of locations. That is a project I have wanted to do for years. And as you ID a location via that sort of info, it can dovetail into matching mugs to them by their drink menu. They may not have had a mug with their name on it, or they may have some that do not, but, those mugs are already in Ooga-Mooga, so they could be tagged as being used in that location. Really swanky if the menu image could be tagged Facebook style to link to the mug entry...

A thorough database of this sort would create a completist version of a location information. You surf to Islander Stockton and there is every mug, both marked and unmarked, and their postcards, menus, etc. And you surf to the Imperial Glass gold leaf bamboo glass and see it was used at the Kahiki and X, Y and Z locations as well.

That is the website of my dreams... Go H! You can do it!

My request:
There are so many great places listed in Critiki that are, alas, long gone. Could you please add programing that will allow us to plug something into our brains, and go visit those places in the Matrix,... and drink from our choice of mugs?
Some of us might never unplug.

It’s amazing how something so simple and fun to collect, became an obsession! I’m truly grateful to have found OM and the ever growing tiki mug collections cataloged inside. Vintage, standard, rare, artistic, revival, unusual… something for one and all mugheads to share and explore! I’ve met and traded with amazing peep’z because of Ooga-Mooga, including our dearly missed Tiki Kate.

You’ve created a gem Humuhumu and although it may be outdated technically and in need of an intuitive refit… that is just a bit of it’s charm. Kinda like Trader Tom, right?!!

Anyways, I’ve always enjoyed Ooga-Mooga simply for being just what it is…”Ooga Mooga”. So call it what you wish and scratch that 7-year itch. Please, I beg of you, don’t make it too flashy, neon, metallic or brightly lit. I still enjoy a musty dim-lit corner, where the blowfish lamps are dusty, the floor is sticky from spilled Mai Tai and the tiki fountain is cracked, splintered and filling a mossy lagoon of koi.

Mahalo’z for creating, maintaining and updating “Ooga-Mooga”, -please keep paradise, avoid the parking lot and just say “NO” to walgreens!

Fantastic! I'm sure it'll be amazing, and although I'm partial to the name, I'm sure I'll love the new just as much. (I mean you came up with both right?)
Can't wait to see the changes!
Thanks for all you do!

Swanky, the gold leaf bamboo glasses you referred to actually were not used at the Kahiki. Several sellers on Ebay are using the Kahiki name to get newbies to shell out more money. They are nice glasses, but just that- not Kahiki related. Thought I would pass this along so TCers aren't buying something they think is Kahiki.

Or just regular maintenance?

Sorry, but it's just regular maintenance. The site has been down for a little while. Humu is working to get it fixed.

Looks like the site is back up and working fine. However, we lost some recently posted pictures, so if you added some recently, please double-check. You may need to erase those that show as blue squares with question marks and add new pics.
