The majority of my photos have been removed. There are perhaps a dozen left out of all that I loaded up in the last 5 years or so.
Vince - you have 308 pics in your gallery or are you referring to regular forum pics.
All my posted uploads are deleted, four years of posts ruined. I guess partially my fault, but it should never have been allowed to happen:
When I relinquished my club membership, the disc space allocated to me for pics was drastically reduced and was all used up by my previous posts. I noticed that I had the facility to delete pics from my allocation. It did not seem right, to be able to delete posted info, after all, you cannot delete posts, in fact you cannot even edit posts after 15 minutes.
I assumed that the deletion was just a reference in my file, but the pic would remain as property of TU
, so I did a test deletion of an old pic, for which I still had the original. I then pulled up the post and the pic was still there. "Success" I thought and deleted all my pics, opening up space for more posts. A few days later, all the pics were gone.
Jerry did offer me edit privilages, to allow me to rebuild the posts, but nothing happened about that. Besides, the thought of spending hundreds of hours, rebuilding 3000 old posts that nobody reads, was a bit daunting. If anyone wants to see pics from my old posts, just pm me, as I probably still have most of them on my computer.
Now I only post links to photobucket. But even this is not safe. My previous photo hosting site was bought out by another company and they wanted to move all the pics to a new location, so I lost all those links too. This is all very frustrating, after investing so much time and effort. Make sure you keep backups of pics and text that you do not want to lose, because TU
will not helpt you.
Jerry - I hope you plug this gaping hole, as posts are rendered useless without the pics.
