    OK... that thread is now corrected.

    There was a thread titled "Kirks Anyone?" in the "Best of the Best" section of the forum which may be the one you are thinking of. It didn't migrate across from the old forum and so is missing. I'll recreate it tomorrow and flag the link here when I have done so.

    Found this about 20 mins ago beside the house in a new spot across the road from one of my very first fields. Took less than 20 minutes. http://forums.arrowheads.co

    All threads which contained a post by Rock Queen made prior to the migration have now been verified and corrected where necessary (if the original images are available in the archive copy of the old forum). I have corrected almost 600 picture error across those threads (whether on Rock Queen's posts or those made by other forum members), so the error rate was rather higher than seen in other sections of the forum.

    There were about a dozen missing threads, which I will re-create in due course.

    I think it is worth it. I hate for folks to consult the forum and get misled because the wrong picture is displaying. Sometimes it's really obvious, and sometimes folks (like yourself) are experienced enough to realise something's not right....... but novices could really be led up the garden path.

    Trust me... you're not creating extra work. You're only pointing me in a direction which causes me to adjust the ordering priority in which I'm making corrections. That actually helps me focus my efforts where there are the most errors.... so THANK YOU!

    Painshill,

    It wasn't my intention to create a massive amount of work for you. I'm not a computer guy...I had no idea what it entails. DO NOT BOTHER yourself with it, it's not worth it...

    As most long-standing members will know, the forum suffered from a considerable amount of picture errors (either pictures that don’t belong, or pictures which are missing, or both) when the developers migrated the data from our old software platform to the one we are using today.

    I have been busy correcting those errors on a section-by-section basis and/or by targeting posts made by specific members where the error rate is high (some members suffered more than others). To date, I have verified or corrected approximately 24% of the forum content as it existed before migration and corrected several thousand picture errors! There are some instances where the correct picture is not recoverable and I have made a note in the thread where this is the case. Also, I cannot restore pictures which have gone AWOL as a result of the original poster breaking a link to Photobucket or other external image sources. Those will show in the post as “not found”.

    I will take all posts by Rock Queen as my next task and report here when it is done, but it will take a while because I have to check each thread in which she has participated whether she started the thread or not. And it’s a completely manual process requiring me to download the correct pictures from the archive copy of the old forum and then re-upload them into the new one. I estimate it will take a small number of days (long ones).

    Rock Queen made 694 posts before the data from the old forum was migrated across to the new forum and I have already verified the pictures in approximately 15% of those posts… replacing them with the correct pictures where necessary (and if available). If you see a small blue document icon alongside the title of a thread in the forum list (it also appears alongside the title in the first post of the thread), then it means I have already verified or corrected all images in that thread… whether posted by Rock Queen or not. Any of her posts which have been moved into the Information Centre also definitely have the correct images.

    Hope that helps. Any questions, then please post them here.

    Hoss,
    Partially just trying to be funny with the " man's hands" comment. The link to the post you referenced was her last post. It was that one that got me looking into her older posts. Seemed like any older than a year had the wrong pics. I remember one had a caption describing ovoid blades but the pictures were of banner stones??? Also a lost lake point that had tip damage???

    You are right we do not have many members posting from your area. I am grateful for every picture you post. The lithics are beautiful from your area.

    Some of her posts are pictures of points taken in a man's hands. Her significant other ( I cannot remember if Eugenia is married) usually hunts with her and holds artifacts while she photographs them.

    I was browsing through the show and tell section of the forum. I was looking for older posts that have artifacts found in my neck of the woods. Seems that very few members hail from this area, Montana. I was looking at Rock queens old posts and was disappointed that nearly everyone of them has the wrong pics in the posts....unless she finds lost lake points and hands like Andre' the giant....
