Jim has a LOT of works that need to be restored/reuploaded to his revised account. There's no 'easy' way to do this.....whether it's done over a very long time bit by bit...or as quickly as possible all at once there will be the effect of 'flooding'.
In this particular instance it is both necessary and approved, so as he says....please bear with it for a little while
What Jafo said. Normally, we want to discourage flooding of galleries, but this is a special case and we permitting it as we want his gallery to return as soon as possible.
Can't disagree that this is a special case but since Jim's site issues have been well known about for the last year, IMHO, a heads-up to the community that this was being done would have been nice.
We have his previous history and download counts, so any revisions will be made at a later time.
Just curious, does this include original upload dates that will be reset if/when download counts are.
Again just IMHO, if download counts are reset as ID's statement implies the upload dates should be.
