I'm going to have a go at filling in the blanks for my threads which have been retained but I know there is going to be trouble.

The vast majority of the photos I linked to are held at the State library and almost all the pictures now have different links and a different format - while the different format is great for viewing the photos on their website it makes it very difficult to link to - though of course it could be that I am doing something wrong and there is an easy solution.

It will take me quite a while to have a look around for all the right photos.

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.

Update 8 July: All boards have been purged of dud threads [unless I missed a few]. They are now in this board and will be finally deleted after 18 July.
