Framebuilder database

I'm putting together a framebuilder database, both for potential customers to be able to find a builder that will meet their needs, and also to serve as a sort of directory of the community. All builders, from hobbyists to seasoned professionals, as well as companies that make custom or limited production frames are welcome to sign up.

The site is here: http://www.framebuildersource.com/

And the page for adding a builder to the site is here: http://www.framebuildersource.com/si...amebuilder.cfm

Once a builder is added, I do my best to verify the builder and the email address match (easiest way is when the web URL and email domain are one and the same), and then I approve the entry. Once approved, an email is sent to the builder with login information that allows them to maintain and update their information; a good amount of data is only available for updating by the builder, i.e. frame styles, frame materials, etc.

Please note that I consider the site to be in a "beta" stage; I need to add some functionality like a decent search function and a framebuilder map, and there are some things that I still want to tweak. However, the important parts work.

Anyway, feel free to sign up, and if you have any issues or suggestions, please let me know via email at pruckelshaus AT gmail.com Feedback from both builders and potential customers will make this a better site.

Thanks,

Pete

Nobody? Shy? Or no interest in such a thing?

It is, if I do say so, and I'm sneaking up on 150 builders in the database.
