Per has told me that he doesn't want to add to his chart, but that we are free to use his accumulated
information to augment any larger chart for the future.    I think it important to credit him with how
much work he put into it so far, and would suggest that it's up to our community to continue on.

Im not sure WHY Per doesnt want to add to this chart, probably because its a bugger of alot of work to maintain, with loads of people requesting new field and ways of showing the info. I dont blame him.

But it IS an amazing resource and I have used it many times.

One suggestion I have, but it would need some major setting up. Is to implement a Google Docs Spreadsheet. If we as a community made ourselves a default email address, and signed up a google account. You can generate a Spreadsheet just like this. New information can be added by simply going through a form. The only drawbacks I can see is:

  1. Setting it up, (might be a bugger to initially add all Pers info... but might be cut n paste, have to test this!)
  2. When making changes once an entry has been made (will need a admin person to go into that actual Spreadsheet and make the change.)
  3. Pers is cleverly divided into Software and Hardware. Although this could be added as a field, it would not be displayed as such in the final spreadsheet.

Personaly I thing Per should do this as for me its become traditional that he hosts this, but Im sure he is too busy.

As an example I show MY looper friendly Venue list, which comes in 2 halves:

The form where you add venues:


And the Spreadsheet where you can view the complete shit:
