Default RCU is gone

sad to find out that attachments/photos from older post are missing.
RCU was a good "library" of knowhow when you where searching.
Now most of this attachments/photos have disappear .

Rare building pics that should have been kept as a treasure dont exist anymore.

R.C.U. R.I.P.

Always host your pics external on a trusted source such as your own server space or equivalent. Uploading photos to a local forum is always a risk, specially when crosslinking to other forums from the first forum. I agree it's sad, but not unpredictable. I use imageshack, probably not 100% safe either, but way better then local forums with more or less noob administrators.

The new owners are not worried about wht we want or hd. Only the dollar. It is sad. Wish Mike still was at the helm.

This had me scampering to the Savex F-16 thread & saving all the relevent information
& pics.

I suppose they can't store the info on 'dead threads' forever. - John.

That's what I've been doing for years also.
I keep saving on my NAS all the relevant pieces of information I can gather here on RCU.
It has helped me several times already, as pictures were no longer available when I needed to refer to them.

It´s a serious problem, not only with RCU:

don´t throw away your old printed pictures, mags and books!
