If you get one of the later versions of this halvar's vef-imagerescue tool, once you have found a thread you posted in, you can get it to download only your imagebam posts, all in separate folders for each post, so then you can replace them easily.

Untried by me but there's some discussion & examples of upload scripting/automation here.

It may prove to be useful to develop similar such for several different sites, if possible. Preferably in a form that's easy[-ier] for novices?

Gentlemen Thank you for your replys, sadly I cannot follow the tech help.This may sound defeatist but I think I will let my old imagebam posts die.
On another topic when do you think is the polite time to post new images? I do not want to add to the Mods workload by having to check my new post,so may after the imagebam deadline?

No point burning out trying to get everything re-upped before 30.6.17 given theres a 2 month minimum period to edit/re-up posts.

About the only stuff that needs re-upping between now & the 30.6.17 is images for filehost links
especially if your in the group that hasnt kept an offline backup

Best tip i ever received with regards to uploading - save a text file with a direct link to the post (right click the post number open in new tab) & the content code text of the post
no searching required just cut & paste the address.

Your not going to re-up years worth of uploads in 3 weeks
even if you have the original post with content backed up

Even if at the end of if all you've re-upped is 20% thats better than nothing

Personally with myself being hamstrung by bandwidth limitations
i'll probably be re-upping not much more than 20% in the short term (1000-1500 posts)

I really wish I hadn't switched from Imagevenue over to ImageBam many years ago, this whole deal really sucks, not much I can do about it though

If your scans are already backed up then great.
if your scans are not already backed up then you can try using halvar's tool, filtering for your own username, in order to save your scans from a specific thread--e.g. Gallery. Or just browse through your posts in a given thread & use image host grabber or bulk image downloader (free version).

You may not have much free disk space to store all these scans, so perhaps upload them in archived batches to a filehost for temporary storage--i.e. after 30 June you can start re-uploading them to image hosts to share on vef.

Yes, it really sucks, but we do still have some options, for now.

ImageBam was the most reliable image host I know of at the time you (and myself) used it. I seldom if ever missed a pic you posted in the threads I was monitoring. Each other host is either more unreliable, unconfirmed being better than IB, or in danger to surrender as well - sooner or later, I'm afraid. It wasn't IB's own choice to shutting down as far as I know.

So there is no reason to regret anything! We did our best back then, and it was fun while it lasted.

In my scramble to backup a few favorites, I've discovered a few galleries I'd never seen.

We will rebuild!

Fortunately I have all my scans on my hard drive (s) , so no problem there, but just a pain to have to re upload them. I plan on doing a few each day, so it won't be too much of a bother, anyway thanks effcup!
