Archive Photos - Thank You & HELP!!

Dear All

 

The new method of adding photos to the Rides List is now working well with the photos being stored off site and not affecting our forum storage.

 

I am extremely grateful to all those that have contributed - special thanks to @Richard Furniss, @John Carter, @Steve B, @Lee Harwood and @Shaun who have helped get the Archive off the ground.

 

I know we will never be able to rival the old NFA Archive of ride photos, but there must be loads of photos on the hard drives of members that could go some small way to building our own archive.

 

If YOU have an old photo of a ride, even if it's recent, but shows the ride in a different state of decoration, or from a different perspective, please add it to the rides list. It is as simple as replying to the topic with your photo - I will do the rest!

 

If you have photos of a ride that, in the past, has travelled in the UK or been in a UK park that isn't listed in the rides list, please PM me and I will add the ride so you add your photos.

 

All I ask is that you either own the copyright of the photo or have the express permission of the copyright owner to post.

 

Many thanks

 

Bill

Again, many thanks to those that have contributed....

 

There are now 1064 archived photos on 301 ride entries - all stored off forum and not impacting our storage.

 

It's been a great effort, but sadly only from a tiny percentage of our members.

 

It's a quiet time of the year for our hobby - please take ten minutes to look through your photos and see if you can contribute to the archive - all contributions gratefully received!

Hi Bill,

I have some old images which I can't connect with rides in the current list. Are you interested in any of these?

Cheers

Chris.

Hi Chris

 

Yes please! If you (or anyone) has photos of a ride that has travelled in the UK or been in a UK park, but isn't listed, let me know and I will create a rides list entry for it so you can add the photos.

 

Many thanks

I am keeping an eye on new content and transferring photos to the archive as they appear.

 

If you see a photo that has been added and hasn't been archived after 24 hours, please let me know - I know I have missed at least one.

 

When archived I "Like" the photo and show "Archived" in the edit reason.

 

Many thanks again for all your support!!

The archive is building up nicely - many thanks to those that have contributed!!

 

There are now 1319 archived photos on over 400 rides - a massive effort and some fantastic historic photos!

 

As I am storing these photos off forum, they aren't impacting our forum storage and there is room for loads more :)

 

If YOU have a photo of a ride that shows a different state of decoration, or have a build up photo, or a different photo of the load, please add it and I will do the rest!

 

Thanks again!!

 

Bill

It's beginning to get really interesting, isn't it? Just by scrolling the screen, you can see the stages a ride or its transport have gone through over the years. :)

The response has been brilliant and again, I say THANK YOU to those that have contributed. I think we are building up a really useful resource. All that would make it perfect is if I could reorder the replies so the photos appeared in chronological order, but that's beyond the scope of the software.

A huge thank you to Bill for the many hours of additional work and to the members who have taken the time to sort their photos and upload them. It's been a great few days.
