It's definitely a good idea and I am sure everyone will do this.   For example, just imagine how much it would cost to get the things done with photographs that our experts do out of the goodness of their hearts.
The photograph restoration is the first thing I read when signing on!
Kind regards

As one of your appreciative 'clients' I'd like to offer a suggestion.  Would it be more obvious and helpful if a heading re scanning were typed in BOLD CAPS and maybe even underlined or in different colour, as the last item of 'stickies'?

Hope you don't mind me adding my two cents' worth.   :)



Hi Kathleen

Sorry I misunderstood.  Yes, it would be a very good idea, the trick is though to get people to visit there before posting.  That's why I thought at the bottom of the profile was a good idea as while not many people read the top of the board before posting, I'm sure most view previously restored pics.  So if every restorer had it in their profile, you would see it a number of times per pic...(a bit like brainwashing  :P :P :P)

Well, I can do part of it for you  :)

I will now sticky this topic so that it does not disappear down the list.  I will also lock it (if you don't mind).

As far as the bold capitals is concerned - can't do that I'm afraid.  The main reason is that notification e-mails for any topic with a title in capitals tends to get bounced as spam.

But I'll try to make the topic noticeable.  ;)
