As a provisional measure of preservation, would it be a good idea to reupload the Al-Khabir's old faction signatures to the Metropolis Dawn FTP? It would be better to get a proper permission from him before taking action, but it seems Amazigh had left the forums already long time ago.
I noticed the same. Photobucket may have changed their policies, but it's also possible that the account has exceeded a bandwidth usage limit or something (see the gauge in the placeholder image).
edit: Yes, they have changed their policies. Maybe they are having problems with funding...?

Anyway, there are many reasons why I like and don't like Photobucket, and this is definitely an addition to the "not" list.

Imageshack changed their stuff a few years ago too, leaving many old links broken. It seems that not many people use it nowadays.

Having those and other important files on the same server as the forums would be a good idea.


AlKhabir's old UA signatures are here anyway, for those who are interested:

Thank you Ormu for providing the valuable inputs as well as the readily available materials! ^^

Aye, that's annoying.
Not sure if there are still some that used my stuff, but I'll drop a link to a temporary collection of them here, https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bwyd3 ... WVMci12T2c
Mostly just userbars & a few of the models I did yonks ago.

Yes! I missed out for some time but now it's time to embrace the blacksect userbar!

Great! Good to know that yet another portion of UA art survived Photobucket's revolution. It seems that their radical change has become permanent. Soon it's time to delete my photobucket account, I guess...

I remember those userbars. Thanks for uploading them again, they are all looking great!
