What if you don't have, or cannot find all the information needed for the featured phonograph posting? Sometimes even extensive research cannot reveal all the information such as year made, price levels, etc. Can we just enter what we know or what we have researched,,, such as serial number, model number, material it is made out of, maybe some company history if known, and a good photograph of course?

I've always found these far more interesting when multiple clear photos (of the same machine) are added, including (when possible or applicable) a shot showing internal horn design, layout of the motor board, the motor, reproducer, and even some original advertising if you can find any.
Adding a youtube video of the machine playing is nice too, so you can get a rough idea of the machines sound quality.

Im not computer savy myself, but if you click on the 2 youtube related links in this thread, in the TT&T section, it'll explain everything far better than I ever could.
