Dear ATS members,

I need some information please.

My gallery is so full. It has old pictures I used for threads years ago, avatars I created for people, etc.

I was wondering what would happen if I started cleaning out my gallery closet, and deleting a good part of my pictures?

Would those pictures also vanish from the threads I posted them in ?
That is my main concern.

Happy Monday.

Yes.

ETA: You are aware that you have multiple galleries, right?

Hi RW.

I often like to have a good clean up and when deleting those pics by clicking on the little red cross they of course disappear.

BUT the ones in your posts don't.

Have no fear.

Erm... Saying that, I have just seen Heffs response... (I meant when I get rid of pics from my upload part of the account)

*gulps* hope it's not too late?

HEFF... You should be in bed?

Kindest respects

It may have changed since last I did cleaning, but my last experience was that deleted pictures did, in fact, disappear once one cleared their browser cache.

I've not been around the past year for this upgrade - so I could be wrong.

Yes, I know about the multiple galleries. I guess I'll rearrange those then, should be a fun activity.

It's just everything looks so cluttered, not like me at all.



Thank you.

Hello dear Rodinus,

(I'm loving your new avatar!)

You know what?

I will try it out now.
Delete a picture, and see what happens.
Throw caution to the wind.
Will report back with results.

Hi Heff,

Just deleted a picture in my upload browser and then closed it and went to an old thread with the same picture (after refreshing ATS). The picture is still there... *breathes a hugs sigh of relief*

Kindest respects

Rod

*Blushes* Why thank you Rainbow.

If you still see a pigeon as the first pic here www.abovetopsecret.com...

Then it has definately worked for me as I have got rid of the pigeon in my upload browser...

And the Stinky killer kitten from the gateway of hell got rid of the pigeon real life... but that is another story.

Kindest respects

Yes, it works!

(And yes, I saw your angry pigeon.)

I deleted a picture I posted 2 days ago, and then went to that thread, and the picture was still there.

Thanks Rodinus.

You are right.


I cleared my browsing data and when I went back to the thread my picture was gone.

So, I'll just rearrange my galleries instead.

Thank you for your help.

After a period of time, the pictures you your gallery will disappear from the thread you posted them in. Of this I am 100% certain.

Just to kind of echo what has already been said, in addition to your local browser cache, it can also take a while for removed pictures to be completely cleared from ATS's Content Delivery Network (CDN), which has its own caching systems.

Once that happens, though, they do eventually disappear.

Maybe.
