I've noticed while browsing through some threads posted in the past that some threads no longer contain the link to the images originally posted - usually because they were personal photographs and the links used originally are no longer relevant - shouldn't threads like this just be deleted altogether?

I don't think so. References in valid threads could be made to those "dead" threads. I think continuity in a forum is a good thing.

I agree. Although dead links are certainly a problem, the archive needs to be maintained as far as possible.

True to some extent, but some posts which comprise basically nothing but but dead links to photographs are a bit of a waste of space......ie: http://www.walkingmelbourne.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4790.

I have fixed up every single image linked to my threads.
I hope others do the same. :idea:

I even fixed others where it was possible.

It took me awhile.
