Broken Image Links

Postby Teknon » Mon Mar 25, 2013 10:09 am

I've noticed that many of images linked to on the forum are broken. I believe that this is due to changes that ImageShack made to their urls. I've fixed several of them so far, but each one must be done individually.

If you come across any of them, please let me know so that I can fix the issue.

Thanks

Tactical maps and initiative counters in the DoD IC thread look forbidden to me.
Thanks for your prompt observation: I was beginning to think it was my fault, somehow... :lol:

No, for some reason, all the images are missing from my ImageShack account now.

Let me see what I can do . . .

I've restored all my images, but the URLs have natrually changed. I really do not wish to go back through almost 1000 posts to correct every URL of every image I've ever posted.

So . . .

If you come across one that's broken, click the PM link below my avatar for the post in question. This will include a link to the post to me in the PM. I will then be able to fix the image and let you know. I do beg, however, that you not go through every single post I've made requesting I update images if you don't need to. Thanks.

So, it happened again. I think it might have been because of either the mobile app or the local app on my computer. I'm somewhat loathe to uninstall the local app, since that is what has allowed me to restore the pictures with some semblance of speed.

I've uninstalled the mobile app, and fixed the broken links for the current encounters. If it happens again, I will uninstall the local app, and go from there.

So . . .

Uninstalling the mobile app didn't seem to make a difference. However, installing the mobile app caused ImageShack to upgrade that account to a premium trial account. It could also be a problem with the desktop app being connected.

To verify if it's one of these, or something else, I've created a new imageshack account, and attached the desktop app to that account.

This image is hosted on my old account:

Let's see which breaks . . .
