Yep, happened a while back, not sure what caused it.
The pictures are apparently no longer on the server either. Not sure where they went.
A friend of mine recently had all his pictures disappear off his website after his google account asked if he’d like to clean up his storage in order to make some room. He managed to find the “undo” buttom buried about three layers down and behind a door saying beware of the “Beware of the Leopard” but he was able to recover them.
Well they are not anywhere on our site that I am aware of but don’t have full access to it either except for just the new babbage portion.
sounds like an evil Plot!…………………….. oh and it wasn’t me
Looks like the Gallery is working again! At least, for new pics :-)
I think the gallery itself is fine, it’s just the images from before have been deleted.
We can rebuild them, we have the technology (steam powered, of course!), we have the resources…. errrrr…….. where have i heard this before? heheheh
That’s kind-of my plan >.>
i recall that there wasn’t a file size restriction on the photos, which might have been a mistake. maybe put a upload parameter on it so it doesn’t hog the server we’re wedged in on?
I was also thinking maybe just making a new babbage flickr account and have it load the images from there.
That would be so quick and easy. I wish I could tell you how to do it. :o)
there is a flickr account. i think i’ll go back to putting my images there and linking.it will be easier on storage
Can you put the link to it here? Also who manages that? We may be and to link it and show the images in a gallery.
Rafael Fabre is the Admin for the group. Though it might be worth contacting him about adding additional Admins as he seems to be online less now days.
I see that we can still upload pictures and that people are starting to do this again. It’s good to see some graphics around.
Is there a way to delete my dead photo’s in a single go or am I faced with one-at-a-timin’ here?
if you still have them you should be able to edit and re-add them. But I’m pretty sure if you edit you can delete them as well.
I no longer have most of them. But it’s a lesson to me not to upload too many, or to dump them after a time.
I must admit, I am a bit of a complusive tidier. I deleted all my dead photos (and the stories that they appeared in) and am starting afresh. I didn’t find a way of doing it in a single go; I deleted them one-by-one. Thankfully, I only had a small handful to tidy away.
