    I'm not really sure how to respond to this post. I meant no offence in requesting that some pictures of a boarded up pub, should be repressed. I was just thinking of what users of the main site would think, if they clicked onto The Greyhound Inn page and saw old photos of a pub, that may look different after the refurbishment. (I've seen a current representation of the pub, on their Face Book page, the pub does look different). Once again, sorry if I have caused offence.

    If it is any comfort to bcfczulluarmy, I suppressed my own photos of The Umbrella in Cheltenham, after he had posted new photos of the pub.

    I understand your motives, and indeed I can remember suggesting something similar to Conrad after a pub I knew had completely changed its external paintwork so that old photos no longer represented the modern appearance. He didn't feel the need to suppress the old photos (expressed rather more strongly, as I recall, and not terribly diplomatically) and I have latterly come around to his view. As long as the old photo is a photo of the pub as it was, there's no need to suppress it. My only exemption from that would be, as expressed above, if the pub had been disfigured in some way - scaffolding, fire damage, completely boarded up (not the single boarded window of the Greyhound, in my view). I don't know what the other admins with powers of suppression think about this, as they haven't joined the discussion and there are no written guidelines.

    Again, not necessary, in my view; but they're your photos, you can do what you want. Again, I understand your motive in wanting the main site to present the best aspects of each pub, but knowing the quality of your photos I don't think a minor change in appearance would justify suppressing them.

    Thanks for your detailed clarification of the situation, I will make no further comment on the matter.

    I always supress old photos of a pub where the frontage has materially changed and will continue to do so.

    Not much point having the past on the front page.

    As long as there's a present of course.

    Indeed it does/is especially as the antennas on the chimney stacks were removed in 2013 and Streetview is 2012 as the building was due to be demolished after being acquired by ALTIN Homes Limited.
