hey this is the new editor, I'll be honest with you I picked this guy's request because it was the only good picture (plus I'm a sucker for a challenge) that I wanted to edit as I was looking through the thread.
However, I've been lurking round here for years and have seen this behavior many times before, which is why I don't care to finish the request unless he provides me with the images to finish it.
I appreciate, greatly, your will to tackle such a situation, but fortunately the only person this behavior is detrimental is to himself.
As for me, this won't scare me off. I don't really like being told what to do (ask me nicely, different story). Ultimately, this thread will be useful to settle disputes if any arise. So I commend you on this wonderful idea.
