Did you know that a private person in Sweden has built a pedigree database?
Feel free to check Ratalog.se
This database was built for a new rat society. But the club was falling behind in the making and are delayed. The person responsible for making this page didn't want the database to ever have problems with any club. Wanted it open for the people.
The person behind this online system will always owning it. Will keep on building it forward. It will not be put down in a couple of years. It will not have a rule that you need to be part of a club/society for using it.
Did you know that I and Terato put over 3000 rats in the system before it was open to the public? Guess how many pedigrees there are now after others started to adding rats. In June 2017, the database had already 9024 unique rats .
You might ask why do a person put so much time and effort in something and not save the money for it?
Easy. We wanted to help the rats forward. It is so sad on how many pedigrees that are lost every year. Computer crash, home pages are taken down. Plain paper gets lost. The database is made for keeping track. Make it easier for people as breeders.
If you're not a member. You can still search rats and see the information.
If you would like so much more. You can become a member for only about 10 euros per year. Then you might ask, you told me the money is not going to the makers pocket?
Yes, i did. All money that is coming in from members. Are put in an own account and at the end of the year. All money is given away to needed organizations. Will come back on who this has been so far. And everyone can give tip on organizations and why to give them the money that year.
Did you know that every rat in the system has its own page?
A page the owner or more people can edit when they like. You can ask the database for access to rats for changing and adding information. But every rat you own is yours to edit as much as you pleace. Nothing you have to do. But it is more fun when people adding pictures and more information about the rats.
The fun part is. You can easily point the rats page to your own homepage. If you do so with the frame code. You will get the picture and small information directly on your home page. All changes in the database will automatic change on your home page. For those who click on the picture, they will be sent to the pedigree and all information.
As a member, you can add how many rats you would like.
As a member, you can make trial matings and share a pedigree.
You can edit information, add picture, add stud book number if the rat is registered in any society/club . Every rat will even get its own number in the database.
As a member, and a breeder. You don't need to do any trial, don't need to be in a society. You don't need to follow many rules that often comes with wanting to use a prefix/breeder name. This pedigree database is different, it would love you to use your prefix from start. The only thing that is recommended. If you are new and not had your prefix long, please check if it's already taken. Preferred to change the spelling or perhaps think of another name.
It is okay to change prefix after a time. But not shift very often.
Most text is translated in english under the Swedish. If you need help or have questions. You can find help on the page. There are also help with varietys. And if you think something needs to be added or changed. Pleace feel free to discuss it with Ratalog. Can't find the help you are looking for. You can also contact the admin for questions.
Ratalog is still under construction. A new database is being made. Takes some time. But don't be afraid. All data from the first version will be added to the second version when it comes.
The person behind ratalog got here first newborn not long ago. She is soon back to support ratalog.
