Thank You Admins!

I going to stop humping Old Navy's leg for minute to give a shout out to all those that are saving this site from the inevitability of change. When I first found this site there were some posts/how-tos with bad pic links. People come, people go and photos get lost over time and create holes (in the RW, I have very few hardcopy photos due to moves/divorce, so not much pre-digital camera...) but there was enough to give confidence. When PB (F them) pulled this right before my swap I was panicking.

It's like @Old Navy is one step ahead of me with his efforts.

Thanks again for your hard work. Personally you've saved my bacon, but you're maintaining a community treasure.

OohRah!!

I'd bet a lot of us lurked here long before joining, and if all the pictures were gone in the how-to's etc we might never have stuck around long enough to stop lurking and start contributing.

Much thanks @Old Navy for your hard work before and especially after PB screwed us all!

yeah, he's doing a FANTASTIC job getting these threads fixed!

And he's got some helper elves too ;-) If you wanna help out, shoot me a PM with your email address. I've got a system setup that myself & several other members have been using to help him out with photo downloads.

The most time-consuming part for him is downloading the photos...fixing the threads is the easy part. That's where we come in to help him out.

As of now, the photos can still be seen/downloaded via this method: https://www.thenewx.org/forum/21-pict...pb-images.html

In a nutshell.....you'll download all photos from an affected thread onto your computer. You'll then upload those photos into a folder within the OneDrive folder. Old Navy, at some point afterwards, will grab that folder you uploaded & do his thing to fix the respected thread.

There's detailed step-by-step directions w/in OneDrive on how to exactly do this so everyone does it all the same way so he can hammer them out.

And...as of NOW, all PB photos are accessible via that how-to. The question is how LONG will they remain accessible. Because PB screwed over the webs by changing their TOS, who knows if they'll go one step further and make it impossible to access the photos entirely unless they're under a paid account.

And if there are active members out there with how to's affected, please, please, please update the photo links. We are doing this exactly like you would by downloading one at a time, re-uploading and re-linking. It's a ton of work and any thread that we don't have to do helps.

HaHa Elves..... Ahhh Yes, I have Four of them, (JOSX2, Jsexton, afarrar3 & Longboardr), and they are doing an "OUTSTANDING" Job finding the Ammo, (Photos), to resurrect these photo into these threads.

I take photos that they download from 'photophucket' and upload them into Albums in my Profile. Take a look, I have almost uploaded 1,000 photos so far. They are up loaded into Username Albums and it is from here that they get TNX.org Hosted Links to replace the 'photophucket Ransomware Links'. This way these photos are now here forever or until this website is gone.

I was looking into another hosting site, but I only wanted to do this once, so here we are.

Along with uploading the new links, I also do general upgrade sweeping of the thread with, Bolding, Capitalizing, Punctuation, Spelling, etc.... One thread with a 148 Photos took me 5 Days to get done and another 3.5 Days with 85 Photos. So some are easy and quick and some are long and hard.

So like Josh, stated if you want to help with the 'photophucket' download, send him a PM.

It would be more useful if you helped us fix the threads correctly...

I resisted commenting on this because I really appreciate @29erClan's efforts to make the photos available, but resurrecting photos to an attachment that one has to download to view isn't the best way. Better to have the photos hosted on TheNewX as described in the link posted by @jsexton.
