Repair Broken URLs in Old stickies

Post by Dcdoode7 » Tue Jun 19, 2012 3:30 am

Hi guys,

I'm looking at some old stickies on the engine threads and about 75% are broken :(.  There seemed to be some good info in there that I'm sure everyone would love to read.

If possible, could a mod fix these URLs, and if not, remove the broken ones?

I'd love to see all the old stuff working, as it would make for great reading.


Thanks,

Most of the broken links are to members pictures, we have no way of reconnecting them, as the pics are hosted by the member that posted them. At one point I was gathering a list of all the important threads with pics and having the pics moved to the SC server, but it is very time consuming, and i ran out of time to do it. I wish there was an easy way to preserve 100% of the info and pics, but that is just not possible on a site that has no one "On Staff" 100% of the time to track and save the info.

Yeah think when a link is stickied the pics should be uploaded to the sc server where it can't lost

What if some respected members,,that had the time,,was given a temperary mod?  just to save our data.
Saving anything is better than letting it die,,once it dies its gone 4-ever!!

I'd agree with xtreme. I work nights and would love to help out the community by preserving the stickies if I was told how to.  

That to me, is a great idea, and we can make it a real community effort to try to fix some of these old stickies.

I think that's what they're talking about "saving it to the SC servers" for the pictures.  Instead of having the user's pictures hosted on a user's account, the Admins can save the pics and link them to the pictures on the SC servers...

I think... Kinda sounds jumbled, but I think that makes sense

Whats going on with this?

i just came across a thread that is an epic build,,with about 10% of the pics missing,,eventually it will be 100% missing.

If Information is what this site is for,,Slowly loosing it is like slowly dieing,,
I feel Like its a big deal,,and needs adressed quickly.

I understand what you guys are asking for, and I will see what can be done about it, but I make no promises. The site software is so outdated that it makes it difficult to accomplish this. An upgrade is in the works, but that takes time and money that the site, without sponsors (we all seem to like that, except for the money part.) just doesn't have.
