    Hi All
    I was just looking over my old Tracking posts for an image of a deer track and most of my images have gone what’s the point of a sticky thread like this Links thread for tracks and sign if the images time out so to speak, What have I done Wrong.

    Have you deleted or amended any of the pictures where you had them stored?

    Not as far as I’m aware I used image shack originally, but it’s not just my images it’s happening to if you have a quick look through the thread. Cheers

    IIRC (and I could be wrong :eek: ) there is / was a habit on at least some of the picture hosting site to give precedence to keeping more recent links active ~ in essence some older links can become archived and inactive :( .


    And it can be a real pita when you locate a thread only to find the pics gone ~ I like spiritburner.com's practice of having to load pictures through the forum rather than an independant server :approve: (once they're loaded onto the site they're there for good ;) )

    Image hosts delete files after a set time if nobody has viewed them. Check with the image host you used to see what their policy is.

    Alternatively get a premium account with a host and not worry about them been deleted.

    I doubt very much its a bcuk issue. More likely your end. all bc uk does is reference a link.

    go into image shack and see if you can find it

    Sorry mate was talking about the OP. Not sure with yours then, maybe the recent update to the site culled them :dunno:
