As some of you might have read in this thread "An era of storm chasing vanishing", we discovered through building ST's event archive that much of the material from storm chasing past has/is being lost. The probable facts contributing to this are: Roughly 90% of storm chaser web sites from the 1990-2010 era have disappeared from the internet, taking with them many pictures, videos and chase accounts from iconic/memorable events. For example, only a handful of chase accounts from Mulvane exist online today. Post-2010, most of today's chasers only post intercept pictures and brief accounts on social media, which quickly get buried as time goes on. These posts and pictures are usually not indexed by search engines, nor do the social media platforms themselves offer any easy way for a visitor to find these after the fact (the only way is to scroll a very long way down a user's feed). As chasers age, there tends to be lesser participation in the community and little to no motivation/willingness to share accounts and images. So, what can we do to preserve the past? Is it worth preserving? Is there any community-wide desire to see our generation of chasing preserved for those that will enter the hobby in the future, even after we're gone? Blake Naftel's Storm Chasing Anthology promises to be an excellent vehicle to help accomplish this, but I'm thinking we could expand on that here in some way. The Storm Chasing Event Archive might be a start to some future online repository. Right now the Event Archive is a cursory summary with links - I'm wondering if it might be possible to start including images and accounts permanently hosted here on ST. The Reports threads already have that to some degree, but if you go back to the older ones, most if not all of the images and links are broken due the the chaser site being long gone. Any ideas/interest in something moving forward?
