Only problem I could find was the original-5 Brad had an alias entry, which he should not have. Deleting that, and all looks good. Yes?

They seem to think so at this page; I have no idea how rigorously they checked, though.

And of course some YouTube uploader of Millionaire episodes has the one after the Ben Wong appearance, and The Jeopardy Fan's recap of the J! Ben Wong appearance doesn't have pictures of the contestants.

Here's Ben on Jeopardy. I don't have video of the episode, but the image of him from Millionaire was taken from the recap at the beginning, where he speaks briefly.

That's good enough for me. When I saw that video in my search, I assumed they wouldn't have footage from the previous episode and didn't bother viewing it. Now that I've seen it I can't deny a striking similarity.

I know that at some point in the past, someone had a bunch of cassette tapes with the audio of unarchived games. I just found an old boom box that works with a cassette tape player at a thrift store. If whomever it is is willing to send me the tapes, I'd be willing to enter them into a spreadsheet that hopefully would be easily convertible into the archive.

You may be thinking of Robert McIelwain (RIP) as the person who had the collection of audiocassettes?

Hello everyone, I'm Jeff Moeller. I was a two day champ ("an attorney, from Anchorage, AK"); my shows were aired June 12, 13 and 14 1991. They are not in the J! archive. I have them in digital format (complete). I also have the other games from that week (June 10 and 11) on VHS only. How can I get them added to the archive?

Here's a link to a still of me Don and Harry on June 13 1991 which is set to public so it should show up

Fixed, thanks. More like that will probably turn up since the OCR did not like the tracking marks covering up parts of clues.

Sometimes the all-in from 2nd works, though not always.
