What's wrong with this site?

What's wrong with this site? Hundreds of coin pics have disappeared, comments have been lost, and I can't replace the missing pictures. Does anybody know if this is going to be straitened out?

Disappearing Thumbnail Images

I have posted a number of requests to the administrator to seek a resolution on this issue - the only response so far has been a deafening silence. What on earth is going on?

Are we the only ones who have noticed this loss of function? Surely this cannot continue.

I've noticed also... many of my images have disappeared, comments also; don't know what's up.

I believe ancients.info was moved to a new server about 10 days ago and some of the links need to be updated. I'm looking into it. Unfortunately the person who know is on vacation until mid-week.

Barry et al,

Thanks for responses I was beginning to think it was just me. Re change of server + vacation effect was what I suspected had happened. So hopefully all will be restored in the fullness of time.

Oh how dependant we have become on modern IT. Still wouldn't be without it as the hobby has been greatly enriched by the ready availability of comment / images etc etc. this current impasse just serves to remind us what we perhaps take for granted.

Cheers

Duncan Russell aka Jotapian.

The dead links all have to be updated manually so it will take some time. At the moment it's not a high priority so it may take a little longer.

And the vacation just ended last Friday so the person doing it just discovered the dead links on Saturday. If there is something specific you are looking for let me know and I'll track it down.

It's been almost a month now and I don't see anything being done at all.

Unhappy I cannot administer my site

It has been overdue to update my Illyrian home page since 2013 but now I cannot access the server vweb2.vhobbies.com. Are you experiencing similar difficulties?
