I noticed this a lot in "Post pictures of" threads. Most recently I was looking at the Sig box thread and noticed well over half the pics are gone because of broken links. When Photo Bucket started charging I like other dropped them and went to other hosting sites. I then would when I noticed, update my pics. I think it would help the forum if everyone would take the time to do this.

Isn't there a cutoff time after which updates to threads aren't possible?

I believe, as long as a thread isn't locked, you can edit indefinitely, on here.
Some other forums I'm on, it's something like a 15 minute window to edit.

That thread is over ten years old. Do I understand you correctly that you’re suggesting that people go through years of their old posts to update broken image links with newly hosted pictures? I can’t speak for everyone, but I surely don’t have time for that.

What you’re complaining about is simply the reality of the internet since it began, and what you’re asking is unrealistic, at best.

Well I am not actually "complaining" not sure where you came up with that? I am referring to the tacked threads to update photos. It's really not that hard, I did it in a few minutes. What is the point of a tacked thread with all the info missing? Yes that thread is old, but if now useless then it needs removed.
