We are loosing informative threads

Post by xtremesavage » Mon Mar 15, 2010 5:32 pm

I noticed the Ofna throttle mod thread has lost its pic's, Its not nearly as helpfull now.
modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic& ... a+tank+mod

These older threads made by members who are not "active members" Can loose pics if that member stops useing his photo account.

Can we prevent this?

It would suck to loose all this great info.

I agree. I have noticed this myself. I don't think anything can be done unless one of the mods adds their own pictures in it's place because if someone stops using their potobucket, like you said, the pictures are gone. :cry:

Good idea. Why didn't I think of that?

Don't worry guys, I have a solution to this coming. I've been working on it and it will make losing threads like this a non-issue (eventually).

Unfortunately I can't magic back images like those ones we lost though.  :(

I have notcied this being a huge problem. I checked all my old savage central favourites and none of the pictures are working any longer.
Hopefully a solution comes soon. Also we def need a sticky to all other tutorials and write ups so FAQ would not be repeated. Or have i just missed that section?

We have a stickied FAQ accessible from the top of the gen, hop-ups and help forums: Evo-Forums_-_file_-_viewtopic_-_t_-_750 ... t_-_0.html
But like I said, I have a better option coming soon :)
