The Catalog is NOT for free

NOT for free

I wrote articles that explains what it means to run this catalog: Many hundreds of labels are added each month and we have to pay for the IT infrastructure. So I asked to help in the cost and to help to keep the catalog up to date, This was now many months ago. Some of you do really help and I like to thank.

Helping Points

In average it takes about 4,000 to 5,000 helping points each month to keep the catalog up to date. And someone has to do it. Before you have access to the trade list and care about your own collection you are asked to do at least a very little bit of the necessary work. When you help you earn helping points.

When collecting banana labels a catalog of all known banana labels is quite essential. To build this catalog and to keep it up to date requires an immense investment. A catalog of this huge collecting area needs time & experience to add all the new labels at the right place and money to run on fast computers.

Trade List requires 5 Helping Points

The catalog is for helping hands only. It is still too much work for me to keep the catalog up to date so in future the access to the trade lists is restricted and only for collectors who help.
