    Are our photos lost forever in the annals of the TD webserver?

    Looking back at some of my posts from 2017, I see no photos that were posted in those threads.

    I do know that with a previous server/forum software upgrade, some/all of thread photos could be located via a roundabout route through the server directories.

    Is that solution now dead and buried? I would love to locate some of these old photos (strangely, my threads from around 2012 still have their photos!).

    How did you load the images into your posts? Did you load the picture into the TD gallery or did you just load a URL with the image stored on a file sharing platform elsewhere?
    A lot of old threads don't have pictures now because posters used file sharing platforms that were originally free but then started charging a fee so they stopped and the pictures disappeared from their TD threads.
    At least that is what I believed happened.

    I always uploaded them to the TD server, never used fileshare. I note some old threads have some photos displayed, but then in the same thread some other photos are not displayed....

    Some were saved to the TD gallery and some were hotlinked to a webpage that no longer exists.

    Mine and many others were linked to photobucket. Which I now call FuckBucket as all those photos are gone and disabled unless you pay now. Regardless of how many you had stored. I simply count them as gone.
