I would be very sorry to see this idea die because it seems too big a task now. Every now and then I trawl through and collate information about genera or families I am interested in for my own use. I do think information is being effectively lost because there are now enough posts that using the search facility can be quite clunky and time consuming.

Is the important task at the moment to sift out and collate the information? It is the data entry that is the first hurdle because it will be the most time consuming. This could probably be done using a really simple spreadsheet or table initially, and made available on request initially rather than online from the start.

Just a thought - might be impossibly naive though.
