I have relocated 15 pages of the chain that were lost in the mishap, and I have posted them here . . .http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34242,

Are there any members of the chain that can help advice me on how to reassemble it :) or do we need a mod to do it?

JAlpha, you're tops!! :Trophy: Thanks, and let me know what I can do to help (if anything).

JAlpha, you don't need a mod. People restoring lost posts are copying what they find cached, editing it in different ways so that it's easier to read than the raw form it comes in, and posting it. One way is to add the php "quote" and "/quote" codes, in brackets, around posters' names to show who said what. You can combine a whole page of posts into one new post or make a separate new post for each old one.

Thanks Reph,

I've gone ahead and followed your suggestion, cleaning up an entire page, which is now ready to be reposted.

Seeing how there are 15 pages though, I'm going to need some members of the chain gang to step up and help me prep the rest of the pages for reposting into the original chain.

So ATTENTION all members of the chain gang, if you can grab a page from the list I have cached and clean it up and then repost it here on this thread, then perhaps we can get a mod to merge the two threads. I'll create a new haiku for each end of the missing chain, and we'll be good to go!

Claim the page you want to clean up and repost it, thank you in advance :)
