Thanks ForTehWin,

I've asked my friend (who is hosting the WikiPiano for us) to see what he can do.
I might need to put you two together, if that's ok with you.

Hi,
if you want, you can place links from the builders to the photos on our photoarchive-site:

Am I the only one who's uncomfortable with putting the Fine ratings in the piano descriptions?

Even Larry Fine wishes he'd never done the "Tier" thing. I don't really see why we would immortalize it when there's controversy over whether the tier rating system is that meaningful.

I think we're giving the tier ratings a lot more credibility than they necessarily deserve.

Totally agree.

If we want to make it a "Larry Fine site", then it would be ok. But I think he might want to have input on that, no?! \:D

A piano site with more general info (and links to builders) would be more useful. But it should include a mention about The Piano Book somewhere. The interested reader can follow that link if they are so inclined.

How can we submit topics that we'd like to have addressed on the Wiki site? I'm trying to get specs for several models/brands of new pianos. And I have some specs (for pianos whose manufacturer's responded to me) which I would post if I could find the appropriate forum. It seems as though what I'm trying to do may be a whole different category from what is in the works here. Walt

Hey Frank,

Sorry about the delay, I got caught up in some projects and forgot I was going to help you out with this.

I'm going to add the rough list of contents you made to the main page under "Contents". It will probably need to be edited and reorganized in the future, but we can hopefully get some editing started.

Great, thanks much.
As you can see, I haven't had the time (or the talent) to get it going.

Best,

Frank B.
