[Solved] Disappearing Pictures

24 posts in this topic

Hello Saru/Mods/Users,

I am puzzled by pictures that disappear shortly after being posted.

I posted 3 pictures of cars in this thread:

All 3 pics were there, then the last one (the punchline!) later became a black cross. A similar thing happened to Manfred's helicopter photos. They were all there, then all gone.

Does anyone know the cause of this?

Sure. It's the CIA. They're onto  you !

Jesting apart... the post seems to have converted the third picture into a link, rather than rendering it as a picture ?

Do you have the option available to edit this post, or has that gone ?

The option to edit has long gone.

They seem to last for a few minutes, then turn into a broken link.

Hi acute, You posted two pictures,  Morris Ital and Ford Anglia. I can see both of those in your post they are still showing.

The third picture didn't come out, it just says matra-simca-bagheera-6.jpg, but no picture.

Then Manfred quoted your post and it's showing exactly as above, he also added an image of Matra Ranchoa to his post. Are you able to see any of that?

It's curious... the page shows the "alt text" of the picture, rather than the picture itself.

F5 (or right-click/show image) DOES reveal the image... sometimes.

The image IS rather large.. slightly over 500KBytes... so it is POSSIBLE that the website that hosts the picture is struggling to serve it in a timely fashion, and our browsers are 'timing out' on it ?

Perhaps the site hosting the image does not support hotlinking.

Good morrow, SW!

At the time of posting, I could see all three pics, then Manfred (who could obviously also see them all) quoted the third one and added his own car pic.

Within about 20 mins, the third one of mine had gone.

As I say above, a similar thing happened to Manfred's helicopter pics. All there, then all gone, and I assume (because he took the photos) they were uploaded rather than linked to.

Images can also be removed due to copyright - especially news images or images with watermarks.

I can't find them. 

Maybe Manfred knows where he posted them.

Ah, I think we're getting somewhere!

Are hotlinked pics with a watermark deleted by the Mods, then?

Well, on MY screen, your car picture is behaving itself again. Possibly because I've been to the thread several times, and the picture is now "cached".

I really don't think you've done anything wrong, nor is UM misbehaving.... it's the website that hosts the picture. (Plus the picture is a trifle big).

I can't see the Matra-Simca Bagheera.

Just as an experiment, can you see this one? You're missing something if you can't

Image result for matra bagheera

Yep! A 1970's-style hippy chick.

I'll post the Bagheera that I posted before, and see what happens.

If we feel they are violation of copyright, then yes.
