Happy 4th Birthday, Camera-Wiki.org!

Where does the time go? Seems like only yesterday we were celebrating the third anniversary of our launch! We have a great birthday gift for our users this year. We’ve moved our hosting away from Dreamhost. While Dreamhost provided acceptable service at a super low cost when we launched, we’ve outgrown it as our user base and bandwidth requirements increased. Our international users were seeing frequent outages and long page-loading times. Those problems should be behind us now. There is still plenty of room to make further improvements but if you haven’t visited the site in a while, give it a try today and see what you think.

Now, for the annual stats!

Our editors have now created over 7,880 articles.
Our Camera-Wiki.org Flickr group has grown to almost 80,000 photos.
And thanks to generous donations from people like you, Camera-Wiki.org still has zero ads.

Of course, there’s still lots of work left to do though. So many cameras and lenses are still completely undocumented. There are still websites here and there linking to the old camerapedia domain instead of camera-wiki.org. And we’re always in need of more help – so join us and help out! Login and become an editor, make a donation, contribute a photo, or help out in some other way.
