    The gallery is gone for the moment. Until we sort things out it will remain gone. It was not used that often anyways and was easily gotten rid of for the moment.

    I don't think it is coming back anytime soon. You should not have been using it for online storage because you had to move them off your comp.

    You don't need to apologize to me. We just are not taking any responsibility for the fact you need images that we are not retrieving.

    Well I have a problem with the missing gallery too. When I am at school I can't upload an image off the school computer there is no "my pictures". So I have saved several avatars and sig pics in the gallery that way all I need it TFF whether I am at home or school, I don't have to worry about which PC it is saved on. Plus the one I have in my sig now is hosted inthe gallery, and without that host the pic is not showing. If we weren't suppose to use it for online storage, then why were there member folders, private folders, and avatar folders.

    Well I managed to reinsert the pic into my sig by coping it from google. But I still ahve a lot of pics inthere that were not saved on a home or school PC. And I would like them. But if nothing can be done then I won't worry about it.

    If it's not too much trouble, can I ask why the gallery was done away with?

    EBM.

    You should not have been using it for anything that was crucial to you and your life outside TFF. What would you have done if the server crashed and everything got wiped? We also do not condone anything being done while at school. You are at school for a reason and that reason is not TFF.

    Secondly as I stated before I am not being held responsible for anything that might have been lost there. It is not my, or any other admin or mod here's problem. I am sorry but its not.

    I agree that people shouldn't have been using it for storage, but awhile back you guys were suggesting that instead of us posting pics in threads themselves, that we put them in the gallery and post links. I know many others were doing that, and now there are many threads that reference a pic for some pertinent reason (ie: sword tang construction, etc.) but there is no link to go to now. Boom, you said it wasn't being used much, but it seemed to be used alot (at least in the costuming and weapons sections, where I frequent). I think it's a huge loss, especially for newbies looking at older threads with links that no longer work...

    Yasmar.

    It is not a huge loss and I will tell you why. The average thread here has a shelf life of about 2 weeks. There are a lot of duplicate threads as well when someone does not go back far enough. People are more than welcome to post attachments now if they so choose to do so. I am not worried about it. The gallery is not being brought back until somethings have been straightened out. We need to raise money for certain licenses and one of them is the gallery and the other is the forums.

    Well it certanly wasn't anything crucial to my life, move on whatever, if there was a pic in there that I want I can get it again just as easy off google as before. I am glad that you support study while at school, but at home right now I have no internet and therefore cannot participate in TFF, either as mod duties or member, so I have to be on at school, plus I am work study which leaves me at school during odd hours inbetween classes, so I will be on at school. But don't worry it won't interfere with my grades, I am a good student. So its cool Boom no biggie, I fully agree that funds are important and if fianance allows I will donate to the cause. But I do agree with Yasmar on the fact that now with no gallery people wil be posting huge pics in threads where before we simply had links. But if your cool with it, I'm cool with it. TFF Rocks and so do all the great people that make it possible. :banana: :banana: :banana:

    No, this is a new gallery. Everything was deleted when the old gallery was deleted.
