I think this is a picture of the climbing form and should perhaps be transferred to that cv by one of HMF's editors. Likewise the other picture taken by the same member.

Yes, thank you. We will make this correction as soon as we resolve a software problem with this feature. We are looking into the problem now.

These photos have been reassigned. Thank you for taking the time to alert us to this error.

There seems to be some confusion among the photographs uploaded to illustrate Cannes Festival [Meilland, 1951] and Cannes Festival 83 [Meilland, 1983]. The older cv is yellow; the more recent one is amber or peach-coloured. Is there an editor at HMF who has the power to transfer pictures between the two, so that each is correctly illustrated for the future?

I can do that Charles, if you tell me exactly which photo is which. I have neither rose so would need some help here.

Sorry, Patricia, I didn't see your reply. The 1950 cv is yellow; the 1983 cv is more apricot.

This is not the first time that I've come across pictures on HMF that are wrongly named. Please can I refer them to you for correction in future?

Charles, any replies to comments automatically generate a HelpMeFind email notification that someone has replied. If you didn't see my reply, you are not reading your email.
I did ask for exact instructions as to which photo was incorrect. Repeating your statement "The 1950 cv is yellow; the 1983 cv is more apricot." is not really exact.

'Cannes Festival' 1951.
I presume you mean only David Elliott's photos are correct, and all others are the 1983 rose? (Cybe Rose's 1953 photo is not yellow!)

'Cannes Festival' 1983
I presume you mean yours and vale denis are correct, and Davide Dalla Libera's are the 1951 rose?

Yes, Patricia, you are quite right - 1950 cv is yellow; the 1983 cv is more apricot. But I did not get an e-mail notification for either of your e-mails - nor one from Behcet Ciragan that he sent the same day. Do I need to do something to my HMF registration to receive notifications in future? Charles

PS How lucky you are to be sailing into springtime roses just as Europe sinks into autumn. Sometimes I think I should spend 6 months in each hemisphere! CQ-R

There are quite a number of European cultivars that have not yet found their way onto the HMF database. I would like to be able to upload details of them as when I come across them. How do I do so?

The way the Website has been working up to now is that
- breeders receive admin rights to upload their own cultivars
- other missing roses are reported to the admins with at least a reference (to minimize errors) and these create the entries.
If we are talking about hundreds of missing roses, it would mean you would also have to become an admin.

Sorry, Behcet, I did not see your reply. The system will not work [1] if a breeder decides not to upload details of his/her cultivars. One could start with Huber at Dottikon. [2] if the breeder is dead (Robinson in UK, for example) [3] if your administrators do not search actively to identify missing cultivars (z.B. Welt der Rosen website). What would be my responsibilities and liabilities as an administrator?
