Hello everyone, it is the third anniversary of the Toyanimal.info website so it is time again to report to the community where we are at and what we have done in the last three years.
Here are some statistics for the Wiki:
Content pages: 14,107 (last year 11,725) we have added 2,382 pages this year
Images: 18,618 (last year 14,336) we have added 4,282 images this year
Total edits since the beginning: 75,612 (last year 58,038) we have done 17,574 edits (and counting!) this year
Currently active editors: 7
I want to thank everyone who has helped add content to the wiki either directly or through giving us permission to add your data/images.
Special thanks to Susanne, Roger, and Kikimalou for their years of dedication and thousands of edits and to Froggie, Halichoeres and Takama for their more recent dedicated help.
July/August is when our annual expenses come due, and the time of year when most members pay annual dues. The $5 annual dues fee helps to offset the annual expenses. This year the annual expenses came to $96.01 for site name registration and hosting.

So far we have usually only brought in about half our expenses each year, I cover the other half from my own pocket. Having enough annual memberships to cover the costs and make the site self sustaining is important for long term viability. If you value the resource please consider helping us with the costs.
Current Projects: We are finishing up a reworking of the Play Visions pages, and are working on the K&M pages right now. In addition we are adding pages in other areas, especially prehistoric species at the moment.
Thanks for taking the time to read our report, and for all the help provided to us by all the editors, members, and STS friends who have helped us over the years.
