Update on Flickr Missing Persons group page

The Southeast Asia Tsunami-MISSING PERSONS Flickr page has a new URL:http://www.flickr.com/groups/tsunami_help_missing/

If you are searching for a missing person, you can post a photo on this group page. You must register and create and account at Flickr, but it is a free account.

Once you are logged in, go to Groups, and use the search feature with the word "tsunami" to find the correct group, and add yourself as a member. Upload your photo to your account. Once it is uploaded, click on the "send to group" button, then use the pull-down menu to select Southeast Asia Tsunami-MISSING PERSONS.

A few guidelines to make your photo more accessible to everyone:

1. Use the person's name as the title of the photo.
2. List the country and location where he or she was last seen in the description.
3. Use the "comments" section to list any other pertinent information.
4. Add the tags "missing", "tsunami", and country where he or she was last seen.

PLEASE TRY TO FOLLOW THIS FORMAT--IT WORKS! If you look at photos in the pool without the tags, you'll see that there are only a few hits; the ones with the tags get dozens of hits almost immediately.

All of this information is available on the Flickr page. If you have any problems or questions, Donna*Marie, and Tsunami Missing are the current administrators.
