Issue with teh Funny Pics thread

Recommended Posts

So the funny Pics thread is currently stuck on a partial view of page 1188, with the last post being this:

Now I keep getting informed of "200+ new replies", but refreshign the page does not actually show anything.

"You complain when you run out of storage space.  You complain when I delete your files.  There's just no pleasing you people."

 

That was a huge thread, and a picture heavy one at that.  I guess it was only logical it would be the first one to get too big to be salvaged.

Picture heavy shouldn't have mattered unless images were being stored on herogames.com.  A link to an image is just text, after all. 

A few things wrong with that:

a) It is considered extremely rude to steal someone elses bandwith like you are suggesting

b) I asume this forum software copies the images to a local storage.

c) The issues in building the thread smells of a database issue. Honestly it is a small wonder the whole site was not knocked out by this isssue. It is apparently a well designed Forum software.

d) This was a thread that had been copied over from at least 2 previous forum softwares

e) this was in the NDG Forum. Non Gaming Discussion.

f) Who even looked at the old entries?

a) Unless it's a dedicated image hosting service that encourages such behavior. 

b) My web programming experience is modest, but I don't see what the benefit to blowing a lot of storage like that would be.  It seems silly to rehost everything. 

c) Agreed. 

d,e,f) I don't see the relevance.  What bearing do these have on the correctness of my statement? 

 

Of course, this is a moot point now that I'm poking around in the page source of the new thread and finding that yes, some people are uploading directly to herogames.com while others are linking.

New users.

New Users were going through 1100 pages of old "Funny Pictures" content?

I rank that between "unlikely" and "figuratively your trousers are on fire".

 

Especially as I was a new user when the thread was already long running and I did not do anything like that.

I was doing my best to catch up on what transpired while I was away, actually.

 

Though technically not a new user, and if anyone was wondering, most of the pics from the first _several_ hundred pages simply aren't there anymore.  You can't even "open in new tab" on them.  Don't know if it's a forum issue, someone took them down, or if there were bad links.

 

Either way, it's not a terrible loss: the internet is filled with funny pictures; It was just kind of nice to have a hand-picked selection.
