Thank You Caddaric79! :)
Your vigilance and help was very important during the upload of Charts.

I'm glad to announce that I finished uploading Organizational Charts (which mean that from now on I will proceed to uploading Land and Air vehicles).
One thing I must mention about Charts - although here, on Forum, they are usually presented in a "column-like" fashion (to make scrolling easier) and are therefore often split into company-sized sections, for upload I was merging them (when possible) into battalion-sized files (several columns wide) - making fewer but larger files. One exception is Supply Squadron of the US Armored Cavalry Regiment (2004), where the combined file was too large to be uploaded (2,5MB).

Also, in the New Site Data Load Project I've posted the thread with "final" FD Uploading principles explained, together with list of Roles and Subroles as well as the list of examples of "proper" naming formats (that part will be filled over time). Of course, if any part of these guidelines is unclear to any of You, feel free to ask for clarification (preferably in THIS thread, so it will be easier to notice) or suggest how could it be better phrased.

Trainbucket has been uploaded. :)
Unfortunately with some filenames I had to take bit liberal approach to naming because of their peculiar character.

Some progress has been made regarding upload of Land Vehicles (both Real-life and Never-were). At the moment vehicles designed/manufactured by Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Cuba, Finland, Hungary, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Japan, both Koreas, Mexico, New Zealand, Netherlands, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Taiwan and Turkey are in. Also, I've uploaded several drawings of dinosaurs in FD scale (made by DarthPanda) and one of generic transport containers. For obvious reasons they couldn't be practically attached to some specific country, I've created "United Nations" as country (especially for these dinosaurs... :P :roll: ).

Another thing: at certain point I've ended up with having separately "Czechoslovakia" (which also has 1 SB-scale ship) and "Czech Republic" (with two identical flags next to each other in the Archive). Although we have separate Austria and Austria-Hungary (as well as Yugoslavia and successor states), we don't have separate Russia and Soviet Union or Ottoman Empire and Turkey, so in the interest of archive's clarity, I decided to merge Czechoslovakia and Czech Republic into "Czechia". Imperfect solution but I can't think of anything better. :/

Eswube old chap, I've just tried to access/view the Organisational Charts, but I've had the old "You are not authorised to read this forum." message appear.

Would you please be kind enough to enlighten me as to when us mere mortals will be able to view these works :?:

Many thanks in advance old bean.

Kind regards,

Andy.

You mean You can't see this?
http://shipbucket.com/vehicles?category ... e=orgchart

And this in general?:
http://shipbucket.com/vehicles?category=real
http://shipbucket.com/vehicles?category=neverbuilt
:shock:

But if You say You can't see this:
http://shipbucket.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=9683
(or this forum in general: http://shipbucket.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=33 )
then
a) try again when logged-on to Forum,
b) if still not working, ask Colosseum or Gollevainen because You're not the first person that's asking me that question. :(

It's a problem that I have also reported. Anyway, we can enter without problems by this way:

The place which You can't access is section of Forum - it's not visible without being logged in, but I didn't knew that it's apparently restricted to only some of the users (even when logged in).

[ img ]

But the actual Main Archive is, as far as I know, completely accessible to see without any problems.
http://shipbucket.com/

P.S. Uploaded Chinese-made land vehicles. In order to maintain some sort of uniformity in naming, I preferred to use "official" acronyms in their names (ZBD-, PHL- etc.) instead of quite common western Type- designations. But because of their popularity, for some (mostly older) vehicles I added that "Type-xx" in brackets (in deviation from standard format). Also, I generally skipped the "industrial designations" (WZ- ) except for the prototypes, because for many vehicles they are hard to find.

P.P.S. Added also Czechoslovak/Czech/Slovak-made land vehicles. Note that those that very clearly belong to period of unified Czechoslovakia are marked "(name) - Czechoslovakia" whereas those modern(-ish) are marked "(name) - Czechia".

Yes, that area of the forum was only made available to those who had asked to assist with the uploading process. I think we should migrate any threads that need to be asked of the broader community to the General Discussion forum.
