Hello,

When I looked at some old pictures, I noticed that many pictures in the old forum (fractalforums.com) are no longer displayed. Is that intentional or a mistake in the old forum?
Is it better to upload all old pictures here?
My english is not good, here the question in german:
https://fractalforums.org/deutsch/41/bilder-im-alten-forums-verschwunden/1455

Best regards

it looks like FF.com is very badly broken :(
Fragmentarium is not a toy, it is a very versatile tool that can be used to make toys ;)

Hi!
Could you give us a link to a page where images are missing?
The gallery still seems to be online. Maybe the images were hosted externally?

Since yesterday, all pictures are gone. Since today, part of the formatting is gone. The forum now looks like this:

yep it does look very bad indeed.
I asked him to clean the logs 2days ago to help recurring, known issues caused by overflowing logs. that didn't help but seems to have made it worse.
I fear he has lost interest in spending time with it.

But not all is lost: we have a full backup of the archive and could restore it here (or better at .com, if Christian gives us access to the domain).
Problem is, that it will be a huge effort and take a lot of time, which we currently just don't have. But it's on our radar.

Regarding images here: I can assure you they are stored safely, backupped regularly and we will take care that everything stays online as long as we are able to maintain the site, hopefully infinity. (notice that sweet new donation button? ;))
