I know that this link was blocked a couple fo years back and thought I'd check it out again as It's got a couple of photo's of me in it that I don't have anymore.

Seems to be that the link is still blocked.

Will it be opened again? Soon? Sometime? Never?

Cheers

Bugsy

Was it not to do with the photo's and info being used on the spate of 'Fakebook' pages that occurred some time back? If so, Max may still have them on file. May be worth an email?

Cheers

Bugsy, contact Joe Offer. Max is kind of busy just now.

An explanation that appeared over several threads some years ago was that the Photos and Info page was maintained by a single particular mudelf who was forced to leave due to "outside burdens."

Complaints about submitted photos that never appeared, and obsolete photos that needed updating (diapers in the originals would have been "Depends" in more current ones?) led to removal of the link and substitution of a default link back to the thread index page "pending maintenance."

My own "index" of files that I think I have shows about 710 images that I think probably were downloaded from the old mudcat link near the time when updates sort of faded away (2002 - 2003?) but posting them elsewhere would be rather pointless since I'm the only one who hasn't aged visibly (and our photos never made it to the page anyway). I also have no information on what "personal info" was ever posted, and of course nothing of new submittals that never made it to the web page.

Odds on finding the folder where those files should be on my computer twice in the same decade aren't necessarily all that good either (????).

While there have been a couple of site crashes, and it's possible that some info was lost at mudcat, it's much more likely that the page went away simply because of lack of resources to maintain that information. It's not a trivial task, and with the proliferation of "photo sites" now available may not be needed (for the pics, at least) as a mudcat function. Posting your own pics on your own photo page, and putting a link in a thread here should be sufficient for those who care(?).

Max took the photos and info stuff off because of trolls. I'd guess he might have access to the older stuff.
I'd try asking Max. He may not answer, he may tell you he's too busy, but I think it's better to try.

While there is a proliferation of "photo sites" now available, there were photos on there from people and of people who have gone and they won't be available anywhere else. It would be sad if it couldn't be found, somewhere and made available once more.

Joe maintains the Mudcat photowebsite & accepts contributions at his usual address - joe@mudcat.org (which he has often posted, along with a request that the subject be specific - eg. 'Photos for Mudcat photowebsite')

sandra (who owes Joe a few Ozcatter photos!)

Thanks for all the suggestions and information and thanks for the pm Joe.

I don't want to bother Max with this. I think he's got more than he needs on his plate already.

It looks like they're gone for good.


Cheers
