Hi Miryclay and welcome! Thanks for your recent uploads. I noticed however, at least on my end, all of the images are upside down. Are you seeing that too, and if so could you upload new fixed versions? I can help if you need it!

Next we should add the images to the pages for these shows. I can do that, too, but here's an example edit in case you want to and didn't know how. Some of the show pages might already have a "Photos and memorabilia" section. You can learn more about how the live show pages work at Help:Tour history.

A general note: the site may be running really, really slow right now. This is not normal and our wiki provider is working on it. The "big fix" isn't slated to come until later this week, unfortunately, but after then everything should be back to normal and fast again. Sorry for the inconvenience!

If you ever need any help with anything don't hesitate to reach out. Cheers!

Hi MusikAnimal,

Sorry about the upside down images. I was wondering if you could flip them them to their rightful place on your end because I am having some Technology issues here. I have never used a Wiki before and was hoping actually to just be able to forward them via good old-fashioned email. Your site looks fantastic and so much room for contributions and growth. Please forgive my poor skills and just do what you feel is best for the SP community with those images. They are in your hands. I will be following and uploading more in the future.

Ok no problem! I don't mind handling the flipping and the editing. But we do want your photos! Wiki editing indeed is a bit tricky. If you ever wanted to go down the path of learning, the help page on may help you.

As a new user, I am curious: how did you figure out how to upload images? Our official documentation is on our donation page. That actually recommends using Flickr because it's easier to use; but you have to properly license the files. Anyway, the way you've been doing it perfectly fine (I'll fix any mistakes); but I do wonder what we can do to make this easier for new users, so any feedback is appreciated! :)

Thanks for contributing!

Ah, I see you've re-uploaded with the right file names, and now they all have the correct orientation, too! So I guess we're all good :) I can add them to the articles later. Cheers!

There is a drag-and-drop way to insert photos, I've been meaning to look into it. But I'm going to wait until next week when the site is running fast again :)

As for your second link, that looks like the tour history. Have you not seen our Tour history page? I would consider it bar none the most complete on the internet! (Mostly thanks to other people, not me, but I did build the system that powers it). And I see now what you mean about a "personal" page. I can think of some ways to emulate this.

Thanks for the suggestions!

The great thing about the second link is that you can see all of the gigs a band has played in a city over the years and by song as well.
