Exclamation DiYers, your help is needed. R170

Thanks to the likes of Photoracket and others
many of the accompanying photos in DiY threads are now missing.

So, if you are looking at doing some diy please take some shots.

If you add them in a reply then mods can add them to the earlier posts.

There are many of us on here that are not home mechanics (myself included).
The diy threads are so good that they encourage us to have a go.
Photos are an essential part of this.

You're thinking 'why not get the original posters to do this?'.
Simple, many threads are ten years old. You try finding a photo (or several) from that far back.
A handful of members wrote many of the diy threads.
Let's lend a hand and help restore these threads back to the original condition.

Thank you for reading and thanks in advance to those that help out on this project.

Myk

Note: IF A DiY THREAD IS CLOSED (ie you are unable to add a reply).
Then please post a link to the thread here and add your photos here.
We can sort it on a quiet night (when JB is in Vegas )

Myk, I have a list of the images that were used in my V8 build thread (that got blocked by photobucket). It contains the post # and which picture (#) goes with it. there's a good 30 images that would need to be replaced. Is there a way to send the list (MS word) with the pictures in a batch folder?

It would also be very nice if we could edit posts over 10 days old

It would save a lot of time in this situation.

A handy tip from Len.

What you can try (if you need a pic that's been hijacked) is to copy a phrase from that thread and relevant to that pic (or google a question related to that problem) and then in the google "answer", hit images. You may be able to find a pic that has been archived by google.

You can then link that archived pic to the thread in question on this site.

Do you have any shared online storage where you can upload the photos and Word doc (e.g. Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.)? If so, upload them to a shared folder, PM me the link to it and I'll fix the broken photos for you tomorrow.

Let me know if you don't and I'll find somewhere for you to load them of my own...

We can download photos and adobe docs as attachments.
I wonder if this will work for MSword.

Print the document (use the option for 'Microsoft print to pdf').
This saves it to the pc.
Then try attaching that doc as you would a photo.

If I'm preaching to the converted, sorry.
I'm not the most tech savvy guy.

Thanks Myk, although it'll be much easier for me to take them from a regular shared storage location, and then do any potentially needed manipulation and re-upload them as appropriate from there. If Turdo2 has access to his own shared storage location (and knows how to upload stuff to it), that would be my preferred way forward.

If he has the knowledge how to upload, but doesn't have the shared storage, I'll find somewhere of mine that he can upload to.

If neither of the above are any good, then I can make your above suggestion work (assuming Turdo2 has enough space on the forum to upload the docs - given that he's a non-premium member).

If you give me a couple months to win Ride of the Month, that may be easier

I forgot my flash drive at home today. I'll try to have them uploaded with a "map" to where they go this weekend. most likely on google drive and I'll get back to everybody.

This, however, will only solve MY problems.. and not everyone elses. wish there was a better option.

Thanks... just ping me with details, whenever you've had the time to upload them.

Believe me, I wish there was a better solution too... I still can't believe that PB have done what they've done, effectively (in my own personal opinion) trying to hold their members to ransom by suddenly charging (a large amount of money) for a fundamental capability that they've had in place for people to use for years!

Just a word on "the wayback machine " or archive.org.

I checked it out.

And yes you can go back in time to see pages at an ealier date, but they still contain a link to where the picture should be. But as it is the third party site which is the problem, you still dont get the picture.

Hope that made sence

Cheers

I just came across this thread, but earlier I happened to add all of my pics back to my project thread: https://www.slkworld.com/general-modi...have-gone.html

They are all in the order that they should be in, along with which post they belong in. I don't know if one of our gracious Moderators can work some magic to place them in their proper position, but at least they're in the thread somewhere

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the method you have used.

Making it much easier to replace the lost stuff.

Believe me, I wish there was a better solution too...

I was able to put the images and an excel sheet with where they go on Google Drives. Let me know who I should allow to view it. Thanks
