It just seems that some visitors are hesitant to do more than post a comment, which increases the work that the webmaster has to do. It's really not very hard to add a photo or edit the entry, actually surprisingly easy.

I'm just happy to have the input... Especially from a county engineer! I wish all county engineers would show the interest in their historic bridges that Mr. Einselen in Miami County does! That would be an awesome thing!!

If he is not a registered user, he might not be able to. Hopefully he will sign up. Indiana has an incredible selection of bridges, so it would be great to have another Indiana contributor on here.

Why not add the name to the bridge entry?
