New way I will handle the backlog

Dear visitor,

As usual, the backlog is huge!
Right now I have 130 messages to read (Feb 21st) (UPDATE as of March 15th: 220, April 4th: 305, April 21st: 402, May 29th: 520…),  google the place (i.e. “Hey there! I lost my GoPro/Contour/Sony kayaking on the Versoix River, close to the Chocolate factory, Please help! John Doe”) to find out where it is, rephrase the English (even-though English is not my mother tongue), and so on.

I think that FOUND Cameras are those that could be reunited pretty quickly, so I will stay focused and start with them. Then I will eventually continue with the LOSTS…

Hope that you will understand this decision.

Bests

Mr. G.

PS a close friend (a well-known web developer, and DJ) is currently working on a V2.0… More efficient (for you and for me), more actual functionalities, using a database (easier to search).
The only downside: Ads will be present. I can not afford a top class web developer, the hosting, etc.
So the website will still be free, but you will have to endure banners…

README: How to announce a LOST or FOUND GoPro Camera?

Dear reader,

A lot of you are asking: “What shall I do to announce a LOST or FOUND GoPro Camera on this website or on the Facebook Page?”

The easiest for me is that you fill out this FORM: Contact us (http://thelostgopro.com/contact-us/)

Please try to stick to the format I am using for the posts (this will help me a lot to post quickly your post: i.e.. no need to google the beach to find where it’s located…):

Title: “LOST! : on the shore of beach XXX, City, County, Country, on YYYY-MM-DD”

Example of text: “Hi! I Lost my GoPro Camera model Hero(1-2-3-…?) on the shore of beach XXX in City while surfing the big waves. A stronger one snap it of my board. It was affixed with the suction cup. The memory card contains some videos of myself driving down to the beach, and 2 or 3 surfing movies there. My board is a red short surfboard. I was wearing a white Lycra over a black shorty. Thanks to the finder to contact the LostGoPro.com. Reward if found! MyFirstName.”

Please note that Name and Email are mandatory. (phone and website are optional)
Your data will never be given to anyone-else except if this concept is sold (i.e. to Woodman Labs, the inventor of the GoPro Camera.)

Also note that you can send us a picture of you on our Gmail address (thelostgopro). This will help the person who eventually found your camera to identify the rightful owner among the many cameras lost in a particular place.

Thanks to stick as much as possible to theses rules…

Please remember that I am running this website on a best effort basis, with no funding at all. I am totally independent for this blog/Facebook page, but have a real job that is very demanding in the airline industry, in the middle of Western Europe based…

Mr. G.
