This is a repository of the names of those willing to help repair their old posts by replacing or updating their missing attachments.
Here is how it is done once you have privileges granted.

Go to your damaged report. click on the "pencil icon" to edit your post. Scroll all the way down to the Attachments tab and click on "add files". Have you new or original attachments in mind. now, delete all the old files. Now re-click on "add files" a blank line will open and now start to re-insert you new images and attachments one by one. once done, click submit above and your old post will have the new images attached.

If you have the guts and verve to wish to repair some of you old post's attachments that have gone missing just reply and simple state "Billy Jones wants editing privileges" and close it out.
In this matter, we will have a list of folks who stand ready to help out should the admins desire to give you the editing privilege.
NOTE: All of the powers that be here take the editing privilege as a sacred gift.
If you should be granted this gift, do not abuse it! Never ever delete one of your own posts. Feel free to correct spelling, punctuation or to add text to make the post more clear in your second pass.
Remember, your main mission is to delete the old, now failed, attachments and re-install your images or any new ones that you feel would further enhance your post.

To join this group of helpers, Just reply to this message and type one line.....

If anybody wants to sign up for this mission, great, we might still need some help but first...

For once we've got some good news about all this: after about 2 hours of digital spelunking this afternoon, we have finally found a trove of image files from one of the earlier iterations of the fusor.net site.

We still haven't figured out precisely how we are going to reconcile what we've found with the database that delivers images to the posts, but at least we have a lot of previously-thought-to-be-lost images to work with.

If it does come down to the kind of manual, post-by-post effort that Richard is anticipating, we'll need all the help we can get.

The more reactive the materials, the more spectacular the failures.
The testing isn't over until the prototype is destroyed.
