29Aug17 Reminder from 17th April 2016
There's a long way to go before we get to the last page of the catalogue, but three Wikipedia pages that might prove useful there, and also along the way, are:
29Aug17 Current ToDo list:
1. Report add quarterly dates ✓ 29Aug
2. New blog page ✓ 29Aug
3. Rewrite catalog and category intros ✓ 29Aug
4. New site map and post it
5. Refer to wiki countries list ✓ see post above
6. Note remaining jobs: that includes finishing the catalog and reformatting the spreadsheet
29Aug17 This used to sit at the top of the page but it is now largely complete.

Δ - 64 Kosovo awaiting recent catalogue access
- 55b Moldova - Dniester, PMR, Transnistra needs more research
- 17a Mount Athos, Greece - awaiting recent catalogue access
- look at Nakhichevan, Part 10, SGS vol 3 p.529.
Peru locals to be done, Argentina provinces, Colombian states.
HK Occ, Japan Occ, China TP & Occ, Indian Offices
§ Egyptian Offices, see Gibbons.
Ionian Is occupation issues.
¤ Cat9 - Research on late entrants needs access to the latest catalogues. Scheduled visit to the Royal 22Aug17. Look at UN, FI773-781: East Timor, Serbia & Montenegro, Montenegro, Kosovo Republic, Mount Athos (Greece), Curaçao, Caribbean Netherlands, St Martin, South Sudan, Kyrgyzstan Express Post. Moldova - Dniester, PMR, Transnistra still needs more research

to clarify what those columns mean,

  • Pages - a detail page (or sub page) for every FICC catalogue entry
  • Cat cols - entries in the new category columns on the catalogue page
  • Cross-referenced FICC ID entries in the Category table
  • Check the sequence ids for the category
  • Decent images for all the nominated stamps, or entries in the wants list with indicative prices to follow
  • Scott and Gibbons numbers, Mi and Y&T to follow, where available
  • Links - forward and backward links for every detail page, main and category
  • Index - check all the variants are in the Index, e.g. Muscat and Oman
  • add all the subsidiary entries such as occ issues into the right category tables and, later, the Index

8Aug17 Decided to complete the job and press on with Page 8 of the Catalogue. All pages written by 14Aug17. I'll carry on with Page 9 and then finish off the two together (P9 is pretty much done anyway as it is mostly Europe and that was completed in June 2016). P8&9 completed 20th August with the exception of some additional research scheduled for 22nd.
  New flags:
Milestones: 2,800 visitors 7th August; 2,900 visitors 18th August; 3,000 visitors 30th August.
