    Post Finished Maps Thumbs

    So if you have found the site slow tonight - sorry, my fault.

    Still, you can get me back and hose my ISP now. Hope a CL can sticky this and ill edit this text out and make it all nice shortly when were all fixed up.

    For now theres some tedious admin to do. The indexer took all the pages and made a list. Then it sorted them and appended a number to the end for each person to keep them separate. Then I grabbed the last image from each of the threads and thumbed them. Some of them didn't work right and some don't have the image as an attachment. Some also have posts after the proper image so its not the correct one. So we could do with a list of items that are wrong. If some CLs could take those posts and look at those threads by clicking on the name link in the thumbs page and add a usual WIP tag to those posts. Once done then edit that notification post and put a DONE in there. Once the notification posts go to all done then ill run it again and we keep going like that till its all fixed up.

    Right - lets cane the servers with this...

    Finished Map Thumbnails
    A-C D-F G-I J-L M-O P-R S-U V-X Y-Z

    Can I also add that the maps in this list are by default copyright but are probably available for use. But please check the thread to see the usage terms for them which is often in the sig of the author. From the authors, please comment on the usability of the images in the threads.

    Redrobes_1 - DONE.

    Great job RedRobes, I'll have to go in and edit some of my posts to make sure the map is the first image. Don't think anyone will be impressed by the ICE Contest Entry form


    EDIT: The thread has been 'Sticky-ed'

    Question

    Great idea to organise this in thumbnails.

    I noticed that the script picked up the wrong picture for "Fabrice1".

    It is not that surprising because I was always attaching my updates in the first post, to spare the visitors from going through the whole thread to get to the final version. As a consequence the script picked up an illustration meant to support a side discussion that was going on at the time.

    What would be your recommendation to fix this? Should I upload the picture again in the last post of the thread?

    Read the Finished Map forum rules sticky. Finished maps should be be just that, finished. Any updates should be back to the original image in the first post.


    Redrobes, can you modify your script to grab the first image instead of the last one found so that your script conforms to the rules of this forum?

    I can try that later today. I think it would help. It ought to be a bit quicker to get all the images since I have many of them already.

    Ok thats done now. Its definitely better. Theres still a lot of threads where the images were hosted on different sites and some where its picked up something else in that case and missing the real map. Theres about 4 instances where the script failed so its got an image marker but no image for it. Ill have to fix that up.

    It can still take a wip tag to override the first image so if its not the first image thats required or we could post a version of the map as an on site attachment instead of the offsite one then we could put a wip tag in on that post to fix the thumb up for it.

    Its only about 20% wrong now.

    Great gallery. Some of the images didn't load for me, this may be a problem on my end (proxy or browser) because there's just so many of them.

    @Fabrice - thanks for checking, we need to know which ones are not right. Don't do anything - we need a CL to fix up a WIP tag - see O/P.

    @bartmoss - some dont have images yet. See O/P.
