Default new project started :)

hey guys,

i just wanted to let you know, that a new small Amiga project has started. Well just a website.

tata: http://amigamap.com

Out of a discussion on a1k.org came the idea that it would be helpful to know, how many Amiga computer are still active world wide. The result is now Amigamap.com.

It would be great if you contribute to the project thanks

If you find a bug or have suggestions or whatever. Msg me

M.

I have several Amigas plus a Sam460. Am I supposed to register each one separately?

It's the only way and you have to use a different email address for each machine.

Not the best method by any means. :-)

no, you use just one email. After you registered the first machine and confirmed it via email, you can login and register the rest of your machines without the need to confirm them any more

Good work.
It would be interesting to see all amiga compatible systems (i.e. morphos machines or aros ones too).
bye!

not directly, we don't see there how many machines are in each country. And also how many from each type of Amiga.

this map isnt going to contain any viable information except overall polularity estimations.
i dont even know how many amigas do i currently own, evcen if i count spare parts and disassembled systems out. and im not going to fill technical info for any of them, thats well beyond what i care or have time for.

there is no need to do this. it is a plus not more.

guys try not to find something negative because of whatever, also when i can life well with critic. Like i said, we are not millions out there. And nobody force anybody to do it. BUT it would be cool if the most would contribute. ..maybe this helps also some company's to produce new hardware for the classic ones. I don't know.

Ok, interesting project. I just added a couple of my systems.

Found a slightly annoying thing (bug?) too. Seems I can only update information about one system at a time. When I press one of the 'Update' buttons, the information for the other system is wasted. Should be fairly easy to fix.

I like the idea of attached pictures, as with c64preservation.

Would also be interesting with information like where the system was bought, cost etc (if available).

thanks mate.

it will be soon updated, that you can update all systems with one click.

i put the idea of pictures on the todo list. first i have to figure out the best way to show the additional infos which the users put in.

price i don't know, maybe the year when bought? i think prices are not relevant in the Amiga world or?

Nope, seems not, considering what the prices are for CSPPC on eBay these days.

I haven't bought a complete system for a while now (as I already have too many of them), but I always find it adds historical value to know where it came from etc.

I miss the option for MorphOS users (Efika, G4 Mac). Same holds true for AROS users.

Great project idea. Needs the option for adding multiple systems. Maybe a section for Kickstart revision along with motherboard revisions?
