    it seems many images that had been posted no longer parse out. You can see the url of the image if you quote the person who posted the image but unless you actually quote them, you won't even know they posted an image.

    this thread shows that cosmictraveler was able to post an image but AlexG and myself were not. I had to just post a url link to the pic that AlexG attempted to post.

    edit: I have been reattempting to get that pic in many times and it finally went in, but it is typed in identically to how AlexG has it and it posted for me after several tries, I have no idea why it would work for one of us and not for all of us. Or just seemingly at random.

    In other cases pics that had previously been working are now not parsing.

    When you use the dialogue box for posting an image from a url, there's a check box that says Retrieve remote file and reference locally. I wasn't able to get the url for the image accepted until I unclicked the box. That might be why it doesn't show up.

    I always unclick that but still couldn't get it to work the first couple of times. and typing it in manually should still work, but didn't.

    Pictures were not showing on my screen. Now these ones are- I haven't checked for others that were unseen previously...

    This link isn't working that you posted... this thread shows that

    Possible that the domain impawards.com is blocking any other domain from hotlinking its images. Has it happened with images from any other domain? or when uploaded from PC?

    Whenever I try to upload images, I get an error, number 2038. Is that just me?

    As long as that box is checked, I can't load from photobucket.

    I can see that image, but that may be because it's in my cache. Can anyone else see it?

    seem to be missing (they were uploaded from my PC and were fine and visible before the server change). Other pictures in the thread seem to be still there though...
    Post number 49?

    ETA: Post number 54, as well...

    Hmm. I think while transferring the files, some of the images didn't transfer completely. We still have all those images on the old server, so I'll transfer them again to the current one. Sorry for the inconvenience. Looks like it's affecting only a small percentage of images though.

    I just looked at my post from May 24 in Big Bang Big Schmang. I was sure I'd posted the wmap graph, but it's now gone.
