"Where have all the graphics gone .. long time passing?"

Been away from SU for a month or three and looked back just now at a topic/question I asked in 2015. All graphics/imagery has vanished.
My topic from May this year seems intact.
The 2015 text thread is still there but no graphics. Is this SU pruning ?
Can I retrieve the imagery content ?

Moved this to the Meta Category for discussing the workings of the Forum itself. I have notice there is a cut off age of posts beyond which posted graphics are no longer saved. I don’t know what that date is. I would guess @DanRathbun knows something about this.

There was a post about this from Discourse devs.

I think it was a server issue and the old images were just “lost” somehow.

EDIT: It was apparently due to a switch away from serving image
resources through Amazon CloudFront via some other repository.

@sam explained what happened at the bottom of this topic thread:

Thanks both.
Had a read through. Much of it over my head but I get the idea that some problem has made it vanish. My stuff is generally fairly “low level” so no great loss to the universe just slightly sad for me :cry:


At least I’ve learned that forum problems get called “meta” :slightly_smiling_face:
… if I remember :thinking:

No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as any manner of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
