Honestly, I love FindaGrave! It's like a hobby to me. All of the database stuff is really motivating to me and makes me happy. This is one of the things that I enjoy doing without caring about what others think. Ever since this website had distracted me until I became fascinated into joining it, I would honestly say that I feel overtasked and it's time-consuming when it comes to doing one memorial at a time in my own way until I see more than one. But let me take my time adding my own data. Since I have a huge passion into database, I am only intending on being a friendly assistant by adding/transcribing some photos, memorials, and editing some suggestions!! I've decided to create some memorials of those who have passed not just because I want them unforgotten but because I want their loved ones to be able to trace their records in case they're lost. I definitely recommend originally full sized images with the highest dimension and better quality on all memorials! NOT thumbnail sized images! Thank you! ;)
I'm fully aware that every contributor uses FindaGrave in their own way and has different styles. Not every memorial is perfect and has all the accuracies, but I try my best to organize memorial data the best recommendation as possible without any conflict. No matter what anybody says, I don't want my sparkle being dulled down.
Most of my photo requests are headstone images since I don't travel to cemeteries but PLEASE upload the BEST point of view of the headstone! I know that we're all limited with 20 photo requests per week, which sounds pretty frustrating to me and that makes me have to tediously create virtual cemeteries (SEPARATED BY CEMETERY) of memorials that are missing headstones and make sure they're all organized as I keep all my tabs on.
If your suggested edit hasn't been responded in 21 days (3 whole weeks), it's automatically approved.
I understand that cemeteries have different policies but I do NOT like being inconvenienced.
I REJECT ANY NEGATIVE MESSAGES!!!!!
I've made the decision of publicizing my virtual cemeteries of the memorials that I'm requesting to have their headstones being uploaded, since being limited to photo requesting memorials 20x per week sounds kind of unfair. My only priority is that my requests must be fulfilled ASAP (ALONG WITH THE ACCURATE GRAVE PLOT INFO FILLED IN THE #PLOT BOX AND THE INTERMENT DATES FILLED OUT IN THE GRAVESITE DETAIL BOX) so that I can declutter these irrelevant lists that I don't need to keep. Once after you upload the headstone image onto the memorial, just simply message me back about it OR I can check my profile and view the history. Whatever works. Thanks a million!!!
