Yeah, the avatar would be easy, but I have lost hundreds of pictures on this forum that were loaded from my computer. Supposed to be THE SAFE place from which to post photos!

I am working on this. Please be patient. Nothing  is lost. There are 14,000 photos and for some reason, less than 1000 were transfered.

Lots of links not working. Also, not all of my pictures have transferred as well as no avatar. Did you have to use PhotoBucket to transfer pictures?! I spent HOURS transferring pictures from PB to my computer to post here and now most of my pictures on the forum have that UGLY PB logo on them again. Not too happy about that, but better than nothing I suppose. Same thing on the Colt forum....UGLY PhotoBucket logo across the pictures!

 This issue is temporary. I can not do anything about pb. What links are you referring too?

During the process of copying files, it looks like part of the pics wound up in a subfolder. With at least 14,000 pics, it is not so easy to resolve, especially with a phone.

I will likely resolve the pic issue when I have computer access,  I have 7 gigabytes of pics on this forum alone.

 Bad things can happen on a website that can cause data loss. For secure image storage, Google drive is a better option, but even Google can not be held responsible and guarantee there will not be data loss.

Links that people have posted referring to other sites.

Interesting. The content of the posts would have to altered. Migrating a website will not cause an alteration of the links.
But then again, a lot of weird things are going on on this server.
Again,  the pictures are not lost. They are just in the wrong location.

Hi Tim,   seems that everything is fine from my end.  Login problems are cured, Avatar is present,  my photos and links seem to be OK from what I've seen.    Thanks for working on it so hard.

No, still missing some. Most of the ones showing have the Photobucket logo running through them. I just don't understand why the majority of the pictures have the PB logo and some others don't. Will any new pictures I post have the PB logo? Still no avatar.
