    Sorry to see that after my two year commitment to "Photobucket", they pulled the plug withoit any warning on 3rd party photo hosting... (expletives deleted). If I can find another host site, l could try to repopulate this thread with the original photos....

    ....does anyone out there really care??

    Everyone is rightly complaining about the Photobucket change.

    One thing you could do - rather than repopulate the whole thread, you could make an album on anthoer hosting site that includes all the pictures. Then you could edit the first post in your thread and direct the reader to the album. Should be easy to figure out the picture locations by the context of the text in the thread. Would require some effort from you, and a little more motivation from the reader, but would be a good deed IMO. These archived threads are a valuable resource.

    Yes.

    As Tim says... These archived threads are a valuable resource.

    Question:
    How did you organize your pictures on your computer?

    I fixed all my threads (that I cared about) by replacing over 500 images. It can be done, but it'll take some commitment.

    I enjoyed your photos, but I know it's a lot of work to restore them.

    Focker-Is there any way you can help him get his pics posted-maybe your site? I know it can be a lot of hours sitting at a puter, but it sure seems like it would be great to see them from the texts. Since I don't have my JEEP with me I don't have many JEEP pics. If I sign up for your hosting site, could he post his pics on it? WCP

    Johns1967CJ5 has been rebuilding his '67 CJ5 thread with the missing photos. His thread and others like it are invaluable resources, especially with the photos and accompanying text intact, otherwise adding an album and trying to sync photos with the description in the thread, it wouldn't have any cohesiveness.

    I vote for restoration.
