Why are some pictures missing from threads?

I have been reading all the back issues, and many times the introductory post says "look at this image," and it is not there. Sometimes later in the thread the image will be in another person's thread, sometimes it never shows up.

Why is this.

Thank you.

There are many reasons for this and they each are caused by a separate issue. Here are a few of the most common:

1. A thread starter tried to include a photo, but entered a typo in the URL. A responder to the thread noticed the typo and placed a link in their own post to the corrected URL.

2. An older post that links a photo from the previous portfolio system may find that photo missing.

3. A person attached a photo that showed at the time, but later removed the photo from the original URl or deleted it from g1.

4. A person posted a photo from another URL from a site that does not allow hotlinking (posting a photo so that it shows up on another site, but uses the bandwidth of the site on which it is hosted).

There are others, but these are the most common.

Cheers,
rfs

Thinking answer #2 is the primary reason in this case, and it's two-fold.

When Garage Glamour became Glamour1, all previous links to images weren't carried over. We were notified of this just after the change and the dreaded red "x" appeared. And, as you noted, the change from portfolio system alpha to the new portfolio system beta lost links as well.

I'm not planning to do a head count on it, but my hunch is that around three-quarters of the dead links here arose from those two incidents.

My thoughts on it anyway.

Frasier,
Dave
