    Cell Phone picture uploads

    Not sure if this thread belongs here - so if it doesn`t, I apologize in advance

    I wanted to know if I upload pics with my cell phone, to an exist thread or a new thread, how long are those pictures gonna be visible for? The reason I`m asking is because in other forums, pictures uploaded from phone or computer, will only have a limited time (2 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, etc) after which it is being removed from the thread without removing the thread.

    Should be here for quite a while. Not sure if they will ever do a data dump.

    They usually stay in place for an extended period, based on previous experience.

    Can’t say how long they will last for certain but it’s a long time.

    Re: Cell Phone picture uploads

    Good question.

    I think it's more likely that images hosted outside of WUS would go missing before any that live on WUS (such as when Photobucket changed their terms, for example, and now there's hundreds of blanked-out Photobucket images in forums all over the internet).

    I'd wager that half of the ones I've posted are hosted on Tapatalk, which I'm aware may not live as long as WUS. I'm not too fussed because forums are inherently a terrible resource of information. (no, really, they are, thanks to wonky search [in]abilities and about a 100:1 chaff-to-wheat ratio) If a thread of mine loses its images in a few years, I don't really care, because this is a transient hobby anyway.

    If, when loading the pic, you use the option "From Computer", then it's there forever. If you select the option "From URL", then it'll only be there as long as that link is valid.
