Archived Images?
« on: October 18, 2009, 09:02:57 AM »
I noticed how a lot of artwork, to include my own, has disappeared from the site (Artwork and Design); did any of the artwork get archived or was it all deleted from the server?  I have come across several threads with interesting write ups bu the drawings are gone (or, at least, not showing).  :-\

In A&D's case, and a few threads in here I'd imagine, deleted. Server moves can be funny that way. Good thing I never deleted my stuff from my computer.

FLO is correct, servermoves have decimeted a lot of the work that was uploaded to this site. My suggestion would be to use a dedicated image server, like Imageshack. Next to the fact that you'll probably never lose anything on it, they give the added bonus of thumbnailing your image so you can post them inline :)
