Well it could be that whoever posted the images have somehow broken the links by moving the images in their image hosting accounts. But I agree, proboards are not the best free forum software out there. They have lots of issues with how easily the sites can be hacked. Myself, I prefer Zetaboards. It is a free forum software that is an improvement on Invisionfree forum software. They have tons of built in security. But with that being said, most hacking and spamming could be stopped or greatly reduced by changing the permissions to not allow guests to post.
He still allows it in the advertising forum. Everyone of the spam attacks have been in that forum, that is because it is the only place they can post. They aren't members, the mini profile even have them as guests.
The most logical explanation is that who ever posted the images have done something to the image hosting account like delete them or moved them to a folder or something and this broke the link.

^You, myself, Leon, and Pancakeman (though he hasn't been online in a while---work, I presume, as he does supposedly work for Capcom) are the only ones I recall right off hand that stuck around through the dead spell.
Yes it does. If you guys want, send me the links to the posts that have dead links for images, and if they aren't in a thread that is active I can delete them, or just edit out the link for the image in question.
