Greek Helmet/ armour database
#1
Here is Jasper's response to the idea of a Greek database :- we have a go-ahead. I guess the first order of business is to find the two editors necessary - alas, I cannot be one for reasons of time pressure and lack od computer skills Sad , so two volunteers are needed.
Quote:As to the Greek helmets, you mean something akin to the Roman helmet
database? Well, it'd be a little incongruous on romanarmy.com, but
that's not really an objection. I don't mind that at all. I could set it
up, fairly easily, but I really don't want to have to look after it. I'd
need one or two dedicated editors that I can show how it's done and
they'd take over. Technically, it's very easy, no coding required.
That's my first condition. The second one is that I'll only accept
photos taken by RAT members or photos for which they have received
permission to republish them. No scans, no nicking from other websites.
I'm not fussy about that on RAT, but I don't want to run the risk of
copyright blabla on the site. Finally, the prospective editors would
have to decide whether to include actual helmets only or if they'd
include vases, sculpture etc as well. In either case, I'll probably have
some photos to contribute.

All the best,

Jasper

Jasper means that there should be no risk of infringing someone else's copyright, and possible legal hassles, since it will be on a usable database, as opposed to a chat forum.

Next we need to discuss what to put on it, as Jasper says. Helmets, obviously...vases, there are so many ( see e.g. Beasley database cataloguing all Confusedhock: ) that if we include vases, it must be armour/equipment only, in my opinion Smile ...statues, there aren't that many... and almost all are "restored" e.g. adding crests, wrong equipment etc

What does everyone else think ?
