Hey everyone.

Iíve been kicking this idea around for some time now and have even started a rough one in the past. Iím thinking now more than ever with vanners getting ill and even passing away, that we need to have a database of memories for all vanners, past, present and future. This database will be kept for information purposes only unless each person agrees that it would be OK to publish in some way. We may need to make 2 different ones?

What I want to do is compile a listing of vanners with all of their pertinent information such as:

Name (real name)
Nickname
Address (snail mail)
Telephone
Cell Phone
Email Address

Photographs:

Vanner Photo
Van Photo
(These photoís can be combined or separate)

Spouse information and children if active in vanning at any time, also.



I would like to send a postcard or email to accomplish this to as many vanners as possible in hopes to get as complete a database as possible.

A couple questions first:

Anyone want to volunteer to help?

Do you feel it should be published?

Internet?
Paper?

Any other information you feel should be included?

Does anyone have or know of or have software to make compiling this type of thing easier?

Once these questions are answered and I get started on this, Iíll make up a postcard to fill out and email (and snail mail to those not on line) to everyone I can and Iíll be asking for everyone to send it to all vanners.

I'm not sure exactly how this (global) post will work, but if replying, please reply in the General discussion area. I want to make it a global post so that everyone sees it.

Oh, If you read this and don't want to reply on the forum, please Email me SuperbeastVan (at) gmail (dot) com "Put VANNER DATABASE" in the subject line.

I was just informed that people are not allowed to reply here in a global anouncement so I'll make a new normal thread in the general discussion area.

I know this thread is pretty old, but if you are still interested in making something I'd be happy to volunteer my services. I do a bit of programming, and it wouldn't be very hard to make a "user registry" that could track personal info people may want to share, info on their van(s), picture uploading and hosting, etc etc. Just let me know if you are interested.

I once contemplated doing a Facebook'ish site where you'd create profiles for the vans instead of people.
Never got around to actually doing it tho smile

i'm all for creating a history type list of van clubs/vanners that would include their club history and photos of themselves and their vans, kind of a family tree of sorts, i would be willing to add what info i can gather from my parents but i know most of these people are out of the scene and wouldn't want too much personal info out there.

There are lots of databases out there, but most fall into disrepair...and are lost. Raoul had his Vanner Yearbook, and Cricket used to put out a Cyber Vanners guide. Virtual was doing a history of vanning.....it is, and will be a huge job to reconstruct all the information....

And keeping it up to date with ever changing email addresses and telephone numbers.....well.....

I think we have a good start here...On Van domain I can send an email to all members...if that were possible here, it would be a start.
