Old forum pictures.

Does anyone know what has happened to the pictures and albums that were posted on "meet my kitty" prior to having to use photo bucket? I had quite a few pictures posted of my cats, and since I don't use photo bucket, I was wondering how I could go about posting recent pictures of them.
Are we going to be able to have access to the photos that we have previously posted? Any answers would be appreciated.
Thanks,

Jacquie, aka: cat1963.

Some are missing, Jacquie.

PS I still miss you! And I'm betting I'm not alone!

Awww thanks Jeanie.
I miss being on here as much too. I have been very very busy looking after
my disabled husband, and teaching income tax courses.
Is there any way to find out if my photo albums were lost? If so, how? If they weren't lost, can I access them somehow?
Thanks again,

Jacquie. aka Cat1963

Jacquie, perhaps it would be best to ask "administrator." I think a lot were lost. I wish I could help you.

They're still somewhere; the question is whether they're accessible. If Yung didn't transfer them to his host, then they're still on the former host's servers. You guys might have some luck contacting the former owner/administrator and see if they can be made available for awhile to the members that want to download them. There might be fees involved if backups need to be restored.

So, they're probably not lost (as in the sense of gone forever); most likely they're lost (in the sense you don't know where they are and can't get at them)

ETA - this new owner/administrator purchased the forum, right? No doubt that means all content. And if the images that are "lost" were part of the forum before it was sold, then ownership of those images now belongs to the new owner. If he doesn't have them in his possession, then by all means he should get them before the previous owner lets his hosting contract expire.

They deleted the CatForum up-loader and I lost loads of my great pictures... This upsets me really as I had a lot of important photo's there. I'll probably get a warning for saying that but w/e >.>

The administraror's COMPANY bought the forum. And I lost my pictures, as did other mods and members. We're all hoping he can locate them. He's the man to address. There's a special forum for that. https://www.catforum.com/forum/68-fee...ggestions.html

Or send him a PM. We're hoping they can be found. If you're getting a warning, I guess I will too. I think we've have our fill of negativity. No one is doing anything but trying to make a smooth transition. That doesn't always work perfectly.

The administrator is the expert in these matters, and the only person who might be able to help. If Catman can help him, I'm sure he will. They are the good guys. They don't want to sabotage the forum. That wouldn't make sense.

I wish someone would address the issue of how we were continually told that it would someday be restored and I for one believe that was never the intention in the first place. The mods were misled into misleading the membership. I lost a lot of photos there, too that I do not have anywhere else.

We asked often enough. We hoped a lot. That's all we could do. I don't know what happened to them. The gallery disappeared after the update to phpBB.
