I'm willing to sing at a benefit concert to save it.

I'll submit my picture but you got to sign a waver in case the gallery is damaged.

I'd like to see it stick around. I will admit that I've not posted my picture there and I should have by now. It's just that 99.999% of the time, I'm the one holding the camera, and I have few Bike related shots with me in them.

OK, the results do not seem to be overwhelming for keeping it. At least 50% is not in my book, at 80% or so it would have been. I was considering putting up a site for the gallery on googlepages and maybe even expanding it a bit. Maybe like so:

Opening page with latest news of 50+ers
The Gallery
Best quotes from the 50+ forum
2007 Accomplishments
The 2007 crop of new bikes
Best Tips from the over 50 crowd
etc

But this would be alot of work that I don't really have time for but would have been willing if the interest was high.

I don't read the stats the way you do.

Of 33 voters, 7 said let it die.

All others were for keeping it, "make it better" or "I will contribute content."

A person may have voted to "make it better," while not voting to keep, but meaning to keep, since they voted to "make it better."

Unless otherwise instructed, many foks think you can only vote once.

In my book, that makes 79% positive, 21% negative.

Maybe you are right. If I look at it your way 78% want to keep it around. Dnvr, start thinking about how you could get the files to me. Just in case this pans out. Also, if anyone has objections to me doing this please speak up.

Duh! and I work in this field, what a dope. It could take me a couple months with my schedule to get that accomplished. Will the site be around that long?
