Group Description

Prompted by a blog post by Barbara Sierman, this space is a staging area for collecting visual examples of digital preservation challenges, failed renderings, encoding damage, corrupt data, and visual evidence documenting #FAILs of any stripe.

You can contribute just an image. If you want to tell the story behind the image, that's even better. If you'd like to share the original file (or set of files), so that tool developers can learn from digital damage and test out their code with it, we'll be eternally in your debt. Contribute the files here:

If you'd like to contribute to some other community digital preservation initiatives check out these ideas:
