New way I will handle the backlog

Dear visitor,

As usual, the backlog is huge!
Right now I have 130 messages to read (Feb 21st) (UPDATE as of March 15th: 220, April 4th: 305, April 21st: 402, May 29th: 520…),  google the place (i.e. “Hey there! I lost my GoPro/Contour/Sony kayaking on the Versoix River, close to the Chocolate factory, Please help! John Doe”) to find out where it is, rephrase the English (even-though English is not my mother tongue), and so on.

I think that FOUND Cameras are those that could be reunited pretty quickly, so I will stay focused and start with them. Then I will eventually continue with the LOSTS…

Hope that you will understand this decision.

PS a close friend (a well-known web developer, and DJ) is currently working on a V2.0… More efficient (for you and for me), more actual functionalities, using a database (easier to search).
The only downside: Ads will be present. I can not afford a top class web developer, the hosting, etc.
So the website will still be free, but you will have to endure banners…

  1. LOST!! at Palmas Beach in Santa Catarina, Florianapolis, Brazil (location: http://www.surf-forecast.com/breaks/Palmas)

    GoPro HERO3+, black, with TouchScreen and adhesive flat mount.

    Last videos taken: I am surfing on a yellow/red surfboard without lycra.

    If camera is found, all I ask is for the SD card. It contains videos from our honeymoon trip to Brazil which I have not had the chance to download. The GoPro belongs to the founder, he deserves it.

  3. My 12 year old son lost his gopro jumping off the Hastings point bridge at the river in Kingscliff NSW. He is devastated as he took a long time to sve the money to buy this. We are on holidays from Victoria.

  4. How do I search or post about our lost Gopro? My husband and I are wall climbers and took a very dear non-climber friend on a very cool route rapelling down the “lost earth” Yosemite falls route in Yosemite a few months ago. He’s a dad of 3 little ones and works constantly and can barely keep afloat, and made a special exception to buy the Gopro to show his family and document his bravery and unique adventure. Many of the rapells land into pools of water at the base of many sections of Yosemite falls and we have to swim with our gear to the next anchors. I wore it on my head for him to show him on his adventure. It came off in a pool of water and now that the falls will flow, it’ll prob turn up someplace along the merced River. My husband and I took diving gear back up the route two weekends in a row trying to find it (who dives with scuba gear in Yosemite, let alone Yosemite falls?). No luck. He’d be so amazed to recover the footage.
