A safe haven for all* neon signs of the world, regardless of their condition, aesthetic or historic value. For they all have some value to those who truly appreciate their beauty, even in their decrepitude.

We're looking for all* neon signs regardless of the condition they're found in. Working, not working, or partially working. Doesn't matter.

Motels, Hotels, Holiday Inns... Bars, Bakeries, Bowling Alleys, Bus Terminals, Cigar Shops, Cinemas, Doughnut Shops, Drive Ins, Grocery Stores, Hardware Stores, Restaurants, Roller Rinks, Shoe Stores, Tattoo Parlors, you name it. You find it, you post it. Here.

For neon lights that can only be described as "Over the Top", there is also the "Artistic Neon Lights" category. Feel free to cross-post. Link

* Multiple signs at a single location will be subject to review. Several found at a museum or perhaps a mall food court with coordinates taken at the entryway would be an example. We want to avoid 27 Golden Arches from the same restaurant becoming separate waymarks. Some common sense please.

* "Beer Signs" and Neon Building Trim posted will be subject to Category Management Vote.

* NO "open" and/or "closed" signs.
Unless of course the sign is heavily embellished, then if that is the case, it will be put up for a vote by the group's officers.

Oh, and here's another bad example.

Thank you for supporting a second neon categroy. Hold your applause, just send money.

One other thing, should you find an old neon sign and we accept it, and it should fall victim to Father Time, we will grandfather it, not archive it, as your waymark could be the only evidence of its existence.

Instructions for Posting a Neon Signs Waymark:
Entry into the Long Description. Whatever you know or can find out about the history of the place. Nothing fancy, you don't have to kill yourself trying to write a thesis on it.

Pictures would be nice. A daytime shot is good for showing finer details, and of course nighttime lends itself for the money shot.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
One picture of sign will suffice. Additional shots - bonus.
