On Monday, it will have been a year since the insignia site was last updated.

Can anyone do a wellness check on Pavel?

No idea, unforunately. I tried to connect with him via e-mail many times, but failed. Alas... And I don't know what to do(((

well the site went down a few months ago but then back up so hopefully he's just been busy ?

That being said, don't editors have access to the encyclopedia directly ?

Marc, we have some additional access to the website, but I'm afraid we have no rights to add pictures and renew it. At least I tried to learn how to do this and failed (maybe because I'm a greenhorne as a user)))

I will try to get in touch with Zdzislaw via Facebook, he seems to have more frequent contact with Pavel.

Hi everyone
My last contact with Pavel was some 4 or 5 years ago. Since then I don't know what's going on with him.His last activity on facebook was in September 2015.

So where do we go from here

I know I sent him a lot of images for updates for Canada and Australia

Happy to put on other website

its a shame since this one is a good can we start a mirror

I know I asked Pavel a few times to be able to be allowed to upload direct and edit rights so I could do my own updates but well it happens

If worst comes to worst, I would suggest starting a wiki since it would make it easier to update.

If so, 2 options are to either use the one (http://insignias.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page) I had set years ago and still use to post my stuff or set up a new wiki named "International uniform insignia" or something like that.

One advantage to using the insignias.wikia.com one, apart from not having to re-upload my images to another site, is that it already has a bit of traffic, on average 400-700 hits a week. Not huge but at least it wouldn't start from scratch

Yikes! I hope Pavel is ok.

I'd love to be able to add stuff. Sadly, I only know how to use MS Paint.
