I am enjoying Walking Melbourne website, but you should check the links as some of them are "dead"

I'm glad you are enjoying the benefits of Walking Melbourne, and welcome to the forum. :)

I'm sorry to say you are right about that. Of course, Walking Melbourne doesn't actually host the pics itself, but instead outside host sites are used by members. Many links are very old now and some members have moved on from here and aren't keeping them updated, and some links were hosted at websites that, for various reasons, haven't maintained the service as was intended and the pics have disappeared.

If there are more recent examples of failed links you have in mind perhaps you can point to them and maybe the original poster might go back and fix the problem.

I agree it's regretful that some of these useful resources are not still available.

I expect a large number of my threads are now rendered pointless by the change in the links to photographs I used from the state library website - it would take a hell of a lot of work to see if I could find the same photos and change the links.
