Accessing old forum images
« on: Feb 21, 2021, 11:45:58 PM »
Hey y'all. I was trying to find an old post from 2009 and remember seeing the images and none of them load on the page anymore. I don't know what i'm doing wrong. Thanks -Nolan

Most images were linked to another site (photoshop, etc)

If the other site doesn't exist anymore,  neither will the image.

The images may exist with the person that posted them. :dunno:

"As of June 30, 2017, Photobucket dropped its free hosting service, and requires a US$99 annual subscription to allow external linking to all hosted images, or a US$399 annual subscription to allow the embedding of images on third-party websites, such as personal blogs and forums. This policy change, enacted with no advance notice, has been highly controversial. As a result, users who previously relied on Photobucket to freely host content embedded on forums, blogs, and websites must either pay the annual subscription (previously there was no charge), or switch to another 3rd party server (many of which are also shutting down or going to pay services; Tinypic, which remained free under Photobucket ownership, was shut down in 2019) and recreate every link (potentially thousands) for every photo previously linked to Photobucket.[4]"
