Thomas Tighe's Spreadsheet of Events is - we're told - being updated for 2020. We regard this as the only other reliable index of Burns worldwide. The Burning Wiki's events list and Thomas's Spreadsheet are independently operated and maintained which gives the worldwide Burn Community not only the assurance that the information is being independently verified, but also the security of knowing that if one website is unexpectedly unavailable the other should be unaffected. Note that each of these sites use slightly different definitions of what is a Burn or Burn Related Event, but this is explained on the websites for those that are interested.

2019 Effigy: 'She Lights the Way'
Transformus has now wrapped up for another year, but you can find details of this beautiful Burn at their website, and links there to the Transformus Burner community. See: https://transformus-burn.com/?fbclid=IwAR2BaY-S9NoORTVCf1h_s8w7qgfrrADc-DTJ1gSdT5qZIlhzYzvNyc36oVs
Contribute to the Burning Wiki
Burning Wiki is similar to, but separate from Wikipedia. Like all Wikis it's a place where all visitors are encouraged to add knowledge, and like all Burn Communities it's a Do-ocracy. One of the quickest ways to getting started creating or editing your own pages is to look at what others have done. To see the code behind each page, select 'Edit Source' once you open a page that you'd like to copy. See Help:Getting started for further information, a quick introduction to wikis, and links to resources to help you.
Step One: Create a Burner Account
Having a registered Burner Account in the Burning Wiki is a good first step. You can create a Playa Name and use that, and even a Burner Profile page for yourself. You can edit this Wiki without a Burner Account, but be warned, the Wiki will then display your computer's IP address as the 'author'. This isn't a good thing for people who like to keep their computer details private. Creating a Burner Account (at the moment) requires that you contact John Mack at the Burning Wiki facebook page. Setup will usually happen within 24 hours.
