Pictures not showing

Question

Hi

Is there a reason why on some threads there is just a small picture icon rather than showing the full picture? 

 

Thinking about it, perhaps it's due to the original picture being deleted by the poster? But some topics have loads of posts/pages with just these icons. 

 

Cheers

Here's a random example. It's a very old post but has a picture and non-picture. 

Thinking it really is because people have deleted old photos, poss to make up more space for newer photos

In the case you showed, they are external links to flickr photos that no longer exist. The top post is photobucket, which is there, and the bottom are flikr that obviously aren't.

There was a big event with photo bucket a decade or so ago when they went from free to not free and half the photos of the internet went missing which caused a lot of problems on the internet. More recently we ran out of disk space so had to ask people to delete a lot of images unfortunately (now sorted), although this is just an account going away.

Sadly any photo hosting service on the internet that starts of popular either dies because they don't make any money, or dies because they start charging too much money.
