    my dad works for nintendo.
    several times i come across "ancient" gbatemp tutorials\reviews\guides, for old flashcarts or old devices with the pictures down...
    heres an example
    Code:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/ez-flash-iii-1gbit-review.24569/
    if you use the reply\quote buttons you can verify that there were pictures in the review, and theese follow an old method of uploading them..
    Code:
    [IMG]http://gbatemp.net/opium/ezflash3/cartandbox.jpg[/IMG]
    could please if possible, get back those pictures (they should be somewhere in gbatemp servers leftovers trash lol) and edit the guides with the new links, or maybe put a plugin which redirects into the new place where the pictures should be?

    So interestingly enough, we used to actually have a gallery built directly into the site itself. The feature was lost when our site was hacked and there wasn't a gallery plugin for the new forum software at the time. I recall the staff at the time mentioning that all of the pictures were still on the servers, they just needed to get everything figured out. But it seems focus moved to the "upload" option added to posts and Filetrip.
    I wonder if the pictures are still on the Temp's servers? :unsure:

    you can check an archive site to (maybe) find all the missing images.

    Everything that was on the old webserver was ditched, since they got hacked and there's no telling where the hackers might have stashed a backdoor.
    The images might be safe but I don't know if they'd have the time to go through everything to make sure.

    They could have ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    No one was too bent out of shape over it at the time. Either that or they are buried deep in the server. Hopefully a member of the staff swings by to help.
