If we knew that the content stored on some determinable servers is lost forever, that would help to limit the amount of posts that have to be restored (if possible). BTW, the only identifiable server names I know of are those where the thumbnails are stored on examples.

I still hope they will be back soon once the server migration has been completed.

Turboimagehost

Some of us have used the above host as a slight backup in the ib/imgbox wake,and I just found out that all my posts using this host is down.

I checked both adult and familysafe stuff.

If itīs just a temporary server issue or they have been removed,I canīt say,but if any of you have used Tih,you should keep an eye on whatīs happening with your posts.
The worst......,youīll have to reup again.

I will update this post when I know more,hopefully in a few days.

New info
It seems that the picsīre up and running again,and getting some extra info from one of our esteemed members,this is not unsual with Tih,that itīs a little sketchy,to say the least.

Maybe just as a last excuse,not a host to use too frequently.

I thought PiXhost was the answer after the IB mess
I went back to using PiXhost for multi-image posts and Imagevenue for single image posts as it appears that PiXhost was having the most trouble with single image posts. The whole mess is incredibly frustrating for all of us. Oh, and I can't get Imagebam to work at all (it claims that I am using AdBlock Plus [I uninstalled ABP and am using uBlock origin]. (:

I wouldnt be in a hurry to re-up enmass to any outside the existing with a track record
because you dont know how their going to react to the extra load

My only thought till everything settles down is to add a few pics on a different host
and a filehost link - 5 a day

The sheer number of uploaders that are likely about looking to rehouse or diversify
would be huge


The turbo forum has 1 case in May 2017 of someone asking why 100s of images were removed

Image removed due to violation of turboimagehost
answered with gibberish & questions but no real answer
http://www.turboimagehost.com/forum/...p?topic=3421.0



About the only thing they do say is if we receive DMCA notice we remove
but their not admitting to culling or outages


recent Model thread - 490 pics moved from IB / IV to turbo by Mod 24/6/17 - now all dead

Posts ranged from very small to larger but overall only 100mb over 11 posts

Image 0523163852545_012_01363.jpg don`t exist on our server!
Reasons for this may include:

- Invalid link
- The file was deleted by image owner
- The file was deleted (old file)
- The file was deleted because of violating our Terms of Service if its not a offline server

Perfect message to make sure you dont know who removed it

Vicki Roberts (UK) - 4 pixhost pics alive
http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/sho...=vicki+roberts



PS


Galleries on Turbo in above link now re-appear

As we've seen with any number of the newly used hosts they have outages just like the rest

At least their not dead

This saga is starting to mirror a TV show where you never quite know if a
killed off character is really really dead

My thumbs are on thumbnails117 too.
They are back again!!!

Update: (Full) images related to thumbs stored on thumbnails101.imagebam.com are still dead.

From what i've been checking from avery small sample through March , April & May
there seems to be a cut off date

Full sized - 30.3.17 and before for 2017 - Alive

31.3.17 and up to and including 12.5.17 - dead

Rachelle Summers 30/31-3.17 example
http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/t30...ummers-uk.html

Make of it what you will

We can pray for a recovery of the bad server or simply add a 2nd option while we wait for the miracle

Its not the 1st time IB or any other imagehost has had an outage that has promoted the thought of offering a 2nd option

Started getting redirects to rustinger on an android device with imagebam. No adverts show when navigating to imagebam, then the image appears then a redirection after about 5 seconds. Anyone else getting it? Happening on every image

Default imagehosts are annoying

Image hosts are extremely annoying due to the fact that one cannot d/l multiple images at a time using certain browser plugins. It is time consuming to get an image one at a time,especially for magazine scans,pictorials.Also the fact that some posters like to put their images on storage locker type sites and limit download speeds unless a person pays through the noes and with "bitcoins" the right to d/l without throttling the d/l speed. Then 75-80% of the conyent is missing,especiall though image venue/bam or the closure of sites
