We took the Beta tag off the keying tool March 14, 2009 – after a year or so of development we were finally “Live”. I was so excited to see the many hours of time spent by developers, contributors in testing and our operations team come to full fruition. Now 5 years later I am even more proud of what we have all accomplished.
As a result of your contributions of 166,000,000+ records keyed, reviewed and arbitrated there are now more than 70,000,000 records available to search for free! In the January newsletter I posted a goal of keying 25,000,000 records in our 5th year. I believe we can contribute more than 25,000,000 records – I am excited to see how many.
We appreciate all who are currently contributing and all who have contributed over the past 5+ years. THANK YOU!
