    I think I was able to fix Post # 4, even though my current skills in black magic are weak. Please take a look at it.

    BTW, there seemed to be an extra picture, a comparison of a 10-ligne bracelet Riverside with an 18s Riverside.

    Here is another thread where almost every image is gone, and there are not even any dead links to follow.
    Recoil Clicks
    Are they somehow recoverable or do you need me to fish the images out of my own archives?

    I have restored the images, Jerry. There were also a couple missing from Post 3 of the Patrician thread, which I also restored. Please double check to be sure all are correct.

    Thank you Steven. You and the other moderators and administrators are doing a great job attending to these little clean-up tasks for us.

    Thanks for calling that to our attention. They have been repaired. Almost all of those problems can be corrected. The difficulty is finding them in a 9 year old thread.

    The images seem to have been hosted on an external site and either have been removed from that site or that site has been taken down. In any event, they are not to be found, except perhaps by the person who originally made the posts.

    This thread seems to have lost any of the pictures I posted (posts #1 & #8). I am not sure if others are also missing.
    (This seems to happen to me a lot. Am I doing something wrong?)

    I've restored your images as well as a couple by Keith R... . Please double check to ensure all is correct.

    I can't say what you were doing "wrong." More likely something you were doing right. I've had the same issue, and every now and then I restore some of mine. But it becomes disheartening, annoying, and a royal PITA to have to do.

    Are these images that were posted recently?

    There have not been any recent changes that I know of that would cause the behavior.

    We did do an upgrade to the Encyclopedia area, but not to the forum area of the Message Board.

    The thread I fixed was from early 2017, pre-Xenforo. My own images - those I come across - are also pre-Xenforo. The best I can figure is that it has something to do with the method used to add the images in-line on vBulletin.

    Unfortunately, the missing images are also missing from the thread as it appears on vBulletin.

    Those images were posted when we were using UBB software under a different administration. The switch was unfortunately not very smooth.

    I am afraid the story will need to be told again on that one.
