JvDA, you are a champion! Having whatever pics restored would make a huge difference to this forum and to what can be retained. I have sent you a PM about this.
I have contacted williampitt today, who told me that his situation prevents him from taking part in WM for now but is looking at returning later. He also said that WM is to continue; as he put it, "Walking Melbourne is not going anywhere so long as someone still cares about it
That is the way it has always been."
I take encouragement from that and hope others will too. In going through very old posts I read that WM has had an inactive period before and yet came back to be very active again. I hope for that to happen again. If anyone has some ideas how to stimulate activity and draw in new interested people, or how this forum can be improved, I would like to hear about it.
