What happened to the attachments in all the threads - articles, pictures, charts, apparatus, etc?  Threads are now empty with small black boxes with an "x".  Much, much information lost.

I'm guessing it's some kind of problem on your PC, not on the website.  I can see everything just fine.  What you're seeing is a placeholder for the picture/chart.  I normally appear when your computer is unable to display the information for some reason.

I understand what you are talking about Mack. I had mention this issue with a few other members recently as well and they too have the same problem.

An example might be if anybody goes into the Firehouses NYC Second Section thread in the History section they may notice some of the pictures are now just a black box. In fact I believe there are some pictures in which guys commented on those pictures, however the pictures have disappeared. I also noticed some videos missing as well going back on a few various threads.

So Mack, you are NOT alone on this

I checked the 2nd Section thread as Willy suggested, and the videos are still there, but no pictures at all.  And I don't have the little "x in the box" either . . . just empty space.

I don't know if this helps, but one idea that mack had was to try and get someone with computer skills who could make simple repairs or adjustments when needed. That person would be as a back up member willing to help if necessary.

There are technical issues that come up and sometimes "tbendick" is really the only one who can take care of things. A backup person with computer skills and able to make adjustments might be a good idea.

I think a well-qualified backup for Tom would be a good idea, Bill.

I think i can see all the pics and video on page 12 of that link. I can open some of the pics to expand them but not all

Correction: I can not see the photos of 234 could it be that there was an error and never fully loaded?

We're working on the issue, just be patient. We have kids and jobs and run several other Facebook and Instagram accounts, so we will take care of it in due time.

As far as any other help- The duo of admins here are in an exclusive club by which we pledged atop an angry volcano, sacrificing our souls to the fire gods for eternity to do so. I would never, in good faith, ask that of anyone else.  :p

Keep up the good work Mike and Tom. I for one are indebted to you guys for creating and maintaining this site. It has opened up a whole new set of friends from the brotherhood.

CFD is right. It is THIS SITE that is responsible for introducing me to so many great guys who are all into the same thing. They come from all over the world and all walks of life. I consider them my BEST FRIENDS.

Tommy B and Mike M., BOTH have done a GREAT JOB putting this all together at NO COST to any of us. I consider it an honor to know them both personally.

Today, I'm very grateful for what I've been given by them. I think it's safe to say that we all just want it to stay as it's been. There's been a few technical issues and if I can help in anyway, "I will". And I'm sure there's others that would too. 

Several years ago some of us got together for the first time. It was a kind of meet and greet thing. We met at a restaurant in the Bronx for just one evening meal. Maybe 18-20 guys altogether. Some of the guys might remember that. That was the very beginning of a much longer friendship shared by many of us today. It has been suggested that maybe we should try to do that again. Just a one meal sit down dinner. 

Here's a Little Blast from the Past:
As I remember we even had a raffle in which CFDMarshall had won the prize. For him it was well worth the trip to come all the way up from Tennessee. And he still comes to visit here once in awhile. 

If I remember correctly, I stayed in the Bronx that night and Mike M told me he would call me if any big job came in. Sure enough, actually it was right over the Bronx border of Boston Rd. A gasoline tanker on fire and I remember seeing Squad 61 pass by me responding to it, along with other FDNY units mutual aid. I think the fire was in Pelham, NY (?).

I just did a "random check" and it appears that this problem has been resolved. THANK YOU to this sites Administrators, "tbendick", "truck 4" and "jbendick" for correcting this problem.

Those pictures etc, highlighted the entire thread and I'm sure took many hours for the individuals to find, then post here for all of us to see and understand better.

In addition to that, a few of us, including myself, were having a problem with the entire General Discussion area of this site. That problem has also been resolved.

Thanks and you guys just "Made My Day".
