    OK, I guess you can disregard my email I sent earlier asking why I couldn't post any attachments.

    Me neither and yesterday a pic got refused or at least it wouldn't upload at all. I hope it gets solved.

    It will let me upload now but no pictures show up after I do? And the pictures I uploaded in the past don't show up, all you see is "No thumbnail" even pictures from other users only show "No thumbnail"!

    The upload functionality has been fixed but we are still working on getting old images back. It will take another day or two.
    Thanks for your patience.

    Good to hear you are working on it. Maybe the No Such Agency has politely cached the pics for us and can send them??

    I can't seem to upload any pictures. Well, I take that back. This morning I uploaded 3 but only the first one works. The 2nd and 3rd pictures are not uploadable. I've tried going to the test section and separately uploading the 2nd and 3rd pictures. Still not able to.

    I sort of get the feeling that the images are lost forever. It's a terrible shame seen as the forum has several picture threads that have been running for years and contain some amazing photography.

    I just noticed my pics are gone too from a thread I started a couple of years ago. Are you guys going to be able to fix this?

    So, from the silence, I guess we're not getting our pictures back?

    First we lose all our private messages, and now we lose all our pictures.

    There's a way around this current 'Attachments' problem.

    Upload the photos to http://gallery.mtbr.com/

    With a PC, right click on the photo you've uploaded and select 'Copy Image Location'
    With a Mac, Control click on the photo you've uploaded and select 'Copy Image Location'

    Paste the 'Image Location' into the window that comes up when you click on 'Insert Image':

    Don't upload the photo using 'Attachments':

    Photos will always show up when they are inserted as an image from the gallery.

    Or you can simply host them off site somewhere like photobucket and post them here. It's free and not subject to the whims of the MTBR photofairy.

    I used to love MTBR. I would spend most of my "PC time" on it. It has changed. It is very sad, but it sucks a bit now.
    Used to love accumulating rep. Can't do that anymore - or if you can it doesn't count cos you can't see what your score is relative to others.
    All my old pics are gone - I go back for reference and can't find out what I need to. Why the **** do you need to "fix" something when it aint broken?
    Very sad. I'm crying into my beer on a Friday night...

    I just spent about half an hour looking for old threads I started, and all of my pics are gone, but some others are there. I guess some were singled out for persecution. I had posted a lot of pics over the years. How did this happen? And why didn't it happen to everyone?

    Where are all the images?

    It is awful that the site admin haven't replied recently about this... seems that everything is gone and they can't fix it, or?

    Has totally ruined all the old threads. So frustrating reading posts with people referring to pictures, but the pictures not being there. Makes the forum useless and I'm sure has lost a lot of peoples trust that the admin know what they are doing and care.

    Yep, I am super bummed about this. Working on a new build and several threads have pictures documenting what I need, and guess what. NO PICTURES. SO LAME.

    GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER MTBR!!!! I am a web developer and I would never be able to get away with this. I would be up non stop working on it until it was resolved.

    All the pics disappeared when they changed to a new far crappier forum software/server, all the pics posted after the change is there and all posted before is gone. remember it took ages just to get the old threads back, and thats only text (and small size). Since this has not been fixed by now its safe to assume the pics are gone forever or at least that its such a hassle to get them working on this new crappier software that no one involved thinks its worth it. I'd say its a 95% chance they are gone forever, at least for viewing by the users.

    Well thats my guess at least.

    I'm sure the nsa has them though, maybe try giving them a call and have them email the good ones?

    I actually don't know how much work is required to make the pics work on the new forum, but i have a feeling its A LOT since they have not appeared yet.
    I can imagine the problems associated with doing that to what, 10-15 years of pics.

    When the new version of the forumn software comes out, please keep this old saying in mind... "If it ain't broke, DON'T fix it!"

    I much preferred the old version, and it wasn't broken. I believe the old version looked and worked kinda the same since like 2003 or so or even long before that.

    Hey All! Good news....old images are back now! Please check. I checked stumpnerd's thread referenced in the original post here and I am seeing them all.

    If you have any threads that are still missing images, post a link to that thread here.

    Thanks for your patience. Took us longer than it should have, I know.

    My old photos seem to be back.

    Many appear as "Attached Images" links in the old threads. The links open the photos OK.
