Why do Postimg photos ...

work just fine on this site, but on your sister site, AK files, the URLs are zapped. Inquiring minds want to know.

Just look at page 3 of this thread to see the zapped URLs http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=272513

Now see that an example URL works just fine here.

Photobucket has issues there and here.

Beyond that the account those pics were based in looks like it was deleted or suspended.

Comparing apples to apples would help ie you would most likely see that the same photobucket links won't work here either.

Use Imgur but understand their terms if you use their mobile app, as in the past they like to get real nosy in your business and want access to a lot of personal info on your phone that they don't need in my opinion.

The postimg is my account and active. I moved all my pics from photobucket to postimg when they wanted $400 to host the pics. So, I went back and either changed or supplemented the threads with the new postimg URLs.

To eliminate any confusion, I just removed all Photobucket URLs from the above thread. Now, only postimg URLs are present.

Look at this last zapped URL in my posting #59 on page 2 of the AK thread referenced above:

By changing the asterisks to postimg.cc we now get:
