To everyone

How do we combat picture links being broken. This is quite a problem and a major inconvienence to elaboration of forum posts.

I mirror articles and 'older' media, but the growing use of linking Facebook/Twitter/Instagram images make things a bit difficult. I can't really copy the pictures over to the server space and mirror them. The user posting them might be perfectly happy for the pictures to vanish after a few days/weeks/months.

That's just the nature of how things are now. More fleeting and transient. Copy what you enjoy from those platforms and save it locally. I can't really offer a better solution for social media, sorry. If you see something that has not been taken by a user on their phone, an article or photo from further back, on the forum, contact me, with a link to the post/thread, I'll see if I can mirror/refresh it for you.

Cheers Syl, may I ask do you have a La's archive? If so how much have you collated.
