    Question What's the "etiquette" for re-hosting pics onsite that have already been posted

    I've been looking through some of the older NSFW pages, and we have quite a few now closed threads out there where the pics are still hosted "off-site" by a third-party service.

    Most of these are still working, though I occasionally run across some that aren't.

    I'm going to have a little free time this weekend and I thought I might move some back on-site, as it would be a shame to let them be lost if the third-party service decided to take them down for "inactivity"

    Hence this post...what's the "etiquette" involved in re-hosting already posted pics. Normally we'd just re-up them in the existing thread, but now all of those old threads are closed down :what:

    I don't want to just create a new thread, because I'm not looking for credit for the re-post

    Should I create a new thread and then alert the mods to merge? That would work, but that seems like a labor-ntensive burden on the mods :(

    Wisdom and advice from the mod/admin team is appreciated on this one, before I jump in and make a mess that no one needs :thumbsup

    Also...if I find a thread with non-functional pics, do you just want me to flag it so you can delete it...or ignore it because it's closed?

    Hi, good luck with that. I have been banging on about this for a while and one particular mod has shown great patience with me I started to reupload offsite pix and then report to have orignal removed but then came up against numerous, and there are lots, of closed threads with offsite pictures. I was advised to just report them, so be aware that some are 'reported' for having offsite hotlinks, typically the oldest ones around June/July '06.

    It is a shame that the threads do not have clickable "reported" flags, which when clicked explained reported reason or ... and ...much better still, willing individuals with a little spare time e.g. you and I etc, be given the ability to a) unclose thread, b) re-up pix & delete off-site thumbs/links and c) to close thread again. I certainly do not want to be a mod, never have, but would like to help out a bit and simply free the mods to do more worthy tasks. Obviously once all off-site links are dealt with then the special ability would be taken away. I expect however, this is too radical. :(
