Update: The response on this call for help has been overwhelming. Currently six people have offered their help and they have started working on my backlog of examples. Thank you!

More than three years ago I created the PGF and TikZ examples gallery. Thanks to fantastic contributions from TikZ users from all over the world, the gallery now has more than thousand visits each day. The traffic to TeXample.net is increasing every month and I receive more and more high quality contributions.

Maintaining the gallery has been a lot of fun, but recently I have not been able to keep up the momentum. Currently I have more than 15 contributions that should have been added to the gallery. I feel bad about the situation. Maintaining the gallery now fells more like work than fun. So here it goes. Are someone interested in helping me maintaining the TikZ examples gallery? If you are, send an email to kjellmf@gmail.com and we will sort out the details.

What I’m looking for is one or more persons familiar with a good knowledge of TikZ and PGF. Knowledge of Mercurial and Python is a plus since they are used in the publishing work flow, but it should not be that difficult to learn what you’ll need.

    So, what's the status? I submitted something a month ago. Doesn't seem to be any more activity. A pity because it's a great resource.

    I am also checking quite frequently and waiting for new fancy examples - would be really a pity if it stops!

    Have you considered migrating this content/domain onto tug.org? It is a fantastic resource for those who wish to learn TikZ/PGF
