Default Old Photos - Gone?

It appears that any photos posted around 5 years ago or more (8/2017 or so) are no longer in the threads. Did you do something to them?
I frequently direct people to a build thread, only to find out it's no longer valid because the photos are not there.

i believe it was a legitimate question looking for a legitimate answer and not unwarranted sarcasm
Many members here including myself would like to have an answer to that very question.

For sure. One of the biggest benefits of this site is as a vestibule of knowledge from the older build threads. If that is gone, the value of this site is diminished significantly. I would have thought we'd have heard from a moderator by now?

I saw this and forwarded it up the chain for investigation.

My understanding:

That happens often, in older threads on web forums all over the place, when the pictures were linked to some photo-hosting company (like Photobucket). When the hosting company ceases to exist or do funky stuff (like Photobucket did, IIRC), then the photo ceases to exist in the old thread.

It shouldn't happen if the photos are uploaded directly from a user. If it does that, then I think it would be a problem with RCU.

They were not on a hosting site. They were uploaded straight to RCU.
