Pictures in older posts
Posted by plasticooker on Monday, November 5, 2012 5:58 PM

Don't know if there is a trick I'm missing or what....

Why can't I pull-up the photos in the older posts? In my opinion, not much sense in keeping those older posts around if you can't see the photos.

Out of 300+ posts, I feel like I'm missing alot of good posts.

Can you show an example?

People just occasionally delete their pictures, not much you can do about it (to clarify, most are deleted on the photo hosting site, rather than in the forum). Generally they're deleted to allow for more space in their photo album.

Sometimes it's nothing intentional, either. All of my older posts had pictures that were hosted on imagecave, which went the way of the dodo. That was out of my hands. Bang Head

Yea, it is very annoying and often disappointing to call up what seems like was once an interesting thread, but all the pictures are gone.

Like others said though, there isn't much that can be done about it.

Sometimes you can call it up in the way back machine if you are lucky:

Unfortunately, nothing can be done to bring back the images that use to occupy these old threads.  The Scale Auto forum is not a photo-hosting site nor has it ever been one.  Over time, photo-hosting sites come and go, photo owners change sites or make changes to their photo albums, thus breaking the links to those pictures.  From time to time, I like to revisit some of my old threads and on the rare occasion, I find a picture that is no longer there because I made a change in the photo album on my Photobucket.  Sometimes I add the missing picture back in the thread, but sometimes I don't bother.

Thanks to all for the replies. That clears it up for me. So much great stuff on here! I hate to miss any of it.
