Why can't I see all the pictures posted? some pictures show up and others don't. It will just say image where a picture is supposed to be. Please help me if you know how to fix this.

They were embedded from other places on the web and those links are no good any more for whatever reason. This tends to just be an issue in older posts, unless someone tries to share something that has protection on it to prevent embedding.

Thank-you for the speedy reply. I am new to the forum and I was just reading up on the old threads and some (not all) of the pictures that were clearly not loaded off the internet were not showing up. I found this frustrating and I was wondering if there was a way to fix this. (like updating a drive or something like that)

give me a link to where you are referring to.

when pictures are uploaded, they should stay on the post. obviously, if it is a link, it could be outdated.

Not quite sure what you mean, but i can give you an example: when I go to http://sybilsden.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13527#p128477, I only see the last picture no mater how long I wait for the rest of them to load in.

Yeah those are linked elsewhere. All the first were one account and the last was a different account so they may have deleted that first account.

OK so it's not an issue with just my computer, that's good to hear. Thank-you both for helping me figure this out (just a little sad that I can't see those pictures :icon-frown: )
