All Pics in threads gone.
#1
Anyone else having trouble seeing pics in old threads? Every pic i have ever posted seems to be gone on all my threads and posts.  I use tinypic to post pics.  Even my Signature pic disappeared.  But i did get a new one to work.

I lost all of mine too, but that may have been because I had used up my 1 gig allotment and, thinking I was only deleting from MY file only, I caused all my pics in post to be lost to everyone else. 
I am still having issues attaching pictures, but not it seems, file attachments using the "add attachment" button. I have reported to the admins and I don't think they really know why. Maybe we're just overloading the system. The "add image to post" button at the bottom of this page seems to work ok.
Perhaps we all need to contribute a bit more money to support the infrastructure to make sure there is enough capacity. Just sayin'

A lot of sites have changed their 'hosting' policies to block requests from sites outside of their realm.  For instance, I have a lot of 'early' pics sourced from my Facebook photo albums that are now broken links as a result of Facebook being stingey and not allowing outside sites to call up pics from their servers.  I try to fix the links when I can, but I still have a lot of broken links to go.

TinyPic and other sites might be doing the same thing.  Fortunately, I also run my own website and just link from it (with no restrictions on hosting), rather than depend on other sites for this.

I'm as dumb-as-a-stump when it comes to computer "stuff". All double-dutch to me!!
That's why I need it all to be simple. From what Eric posted, I guess not anymore. I'm screwed!!

I'm not saying that's exactly what happened... I'm just saying that I've noticed that becoming a trend with some sites.  I have no experience with TinyPic, so I'd check to see if there's been any changes to policy (i.e., if they no longer allow hosting for outside viewers, or no more direct-linking to photos from outside sites, etc.).

Yeah, we are at the mercy of third party image hosts...they can decided to block hot linking at any time or simply delete hosted pics when ever they feel like it!  The best way to upload photos is to use the built in forum upload but that burns up your allowed disc space pretty fast.  You can get more disc space from the various VIP donations including unlimited but server disc space is expensive and I just cant give unlimited to everyone!
