It would have been on the old Server and I believe this information is still available so if there is willingness then maybe it could be restored, as they say every little helps.
Thank you Ken and Stan.
I have asked Henrik for his advice on this and particularly whether, if there were to be general agreement that this would be helpful, it would be technically feasible. No doubt the same information is available, since every image is currently associated with a member (past or present). There would be some aspects to be considered carefully - for example, the sizeable number 9though small proportion) of images legitimately added where the uploader is not the copyright holder.
Do you recall whether there was any comment or discussion when it was dropped previously?
