Our webmaster has informed us that our server is using an outdated PHP version and that the website has to be upgraded. He will do the necessary maintenance work during the coming weekend, starting Friday 11 January. That means that our website may not be accessible for a while. Please do NOT try to upload entries into the Get Dusty during that time, even if you should be able to visit the website! We will inform you when the maintenance work has been finished. Thank you for your understanding!

PGE can be contacted during that time via our FB page 

Happy New Year!

2018 is  over and it is time to choose 'Best of Get Dusty 2018'. All placed entries in the January to November competitions are eligible. Go to the folder 'Best of Get Dusty 2018' and have a look at our 30 beautiful entries. You have until the end of January to choose your favourite. Please post your choice in the forum. The winning entry will be featured on our website and FB page. Happy voting!

Our webmaster Michael Schnitker has informed us that he will have to quit for personal reasons. That means that PGE will be without a webmaster from January 2019 onwards until we find somebody else for the job. If you know of anyone who is computer-savy, knows Joomla and would be willing and able to run our website, please contact the board or post in the forum. We would be prepared to pay a small fee, but PGE cannot afford a fully professional webmaster, unless we raise the member fee considerably, which we want to avoid.
Thank you!
