Good day everyone!

Lately it was noticed that images are "disappearing" from our images section (http://www.moddb.com/mods/stargate-empire-at-war/images).
We got worried in the first place that images might be deleted after a certain timeframe but it turned out that you can still access images if you have a direct link.

(Currently) last accessible image in our section: Moddb.com

Example image which is only accessible via URL: Moddb.com

As we have planty of images shared during the years of development here on Moddb we would like to have them accessible again.
Would that be possible?

Best regards,
Klon

None are disappearing, but because galleries load all images at once, we found the javascript was crashing some browsers. So we load I think the first 500 or so images, rest are housed in your archives: Moddb.com

We don't delete content unless requested by our users. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the quick reply and the clarification INtense! :)

Is it planned to enable the galleries to load all images again at some point in the future?
I can of course share the link with everyone asking about older images now that I know about it but I guess it would be nice not to limit the user experience there in the first place.

Well, there is an "Explore Browse archive" link there, you could just point it out when adding any new images. Though, agreed about that, or maybe load them in smaller chunks, or replace the "Add media" button at the very end of gallery with some big "View More Images" button? (For the mod profiles that have got over 500 images added.)

A "View More Images" button would resolve the issue entirely from my perspective. :)
