Introduction
« on: October 21, 2009, 11:02:42 AM »

Welcome to the Museum of Yo-Yo History web board. 

Like all museums, our museum focuses upon the relics and artifacts which
tell the story of the world's most treasured and enduring toy.  But much
of the history of the yo-yo is a verbal history.  Many company records,
personal stories, and histories of specific items have already been lost
to time.

This forum is a place where collectors can share their knowledge to give
us all more accurate and complete information.  Here we can pool our
resources and knowledge, to fill in some of the gaps in the history of
the world's favorite toy.  If you have questions about specific items,
yo-yos, memorabilia, or related skill toys, post them here.  Include
pictures in your posts. If you have information on the items discussed
here, please respond.  If you were a demonstrator in the golden days of
the yo-yo, post your favorite stories.  If you worked for one of the
yo-yo companies in years gone by, please share your history.  Perhaps
you are the last person that remembers stories about specific items, or
that company in general.  Or even if you were one of those kids in
decades past that remembers the thrill of seeing the travelling yo-yo
man at your corner candy store, post your memories.

And participate in the museum, whether it posting your collectible
items, or collecting articles, interviews, histories to fill in the gaps
in the history of the Yo-Yo.  The museum is not a static exhibit.  It
can only be a growing and interactive reference with your help.

Would you like to be a Curator at the Museum of Yo-Yo History?  Read on....

As a potential museum curator, you've shown interest in contributing to our historical archive. Please e-mail us at curator@yoyomuseum.com, and let us know how you'd like to contribute. For example, the types of items you collect and would like to add, or the information or articles you'd like to submit. Let us know if you would like to contribute as an Associate Curator, or as a Museum Correspondent.

If you are planning to enter items from your personal collection, we will set you up with an Associate Curator account. This will allow you to enter your items into the main museum. All new exhibits from associates will be viewed and approved by master curator for display at the museum.

Once a curator account is set up, you will be able to view our FAQ on photographing your items and image requirements. But you will need to know how to take good photographs, and how to edit those photos, including cropping, resizing, and compressing.

If you have articles or other historical information to submit, please e-mail the museum directly. An account is not required to submit information. The museum is seeking biographies of famous people, company bios, articles, stories, etc., or any information that is yo-yo related and of interest to yo-yo players and collectors, and will provide a clearer historical perspective on the yo-yoing hobbies. Please look through the pure history section of the museum for ideas on information to submit.

Is writing your talent and you've always wanted to be a reporter? Consider becoming one of our Museum Correspondents. The museum has a long list of biographies of famous people and company histories that we would like to add. We can provide suggestions and contact information for the individuals to be interviewed.

Thank you for your interest. Please e-mail us back if you would like to participate.

Sincerely,

The Museum of Yo-Yo History

Wow Chimera - How'd you get access to the original Yo-yo museum website ?
So glad to see this website resurrected.
It would be so awesome to see the museum archives continue to grow and thrive.
