Missing Trophy Guide and Supplement Images Reporting Thread


Terminator

Recommended Posts

Note: Where-ever I've said "Trophy Guide", I'm also referring to the Road Map. Also, all the screenshots in this thread were taken by Terminator and Ryukori.

 

As people may or may not know, ImageShack and Photobucket have changed their hosting policies and are either no longer free to use or want extortionate amounts for more bandwidth. This change means that many critical and not so critical images have vanished from Guides and Supplements all over the site. The problem has gotten so bad that our talented artists have requested a way for people to report such images so they can be replaced ASAP, therefore this thread has been created.

 

The following image hosts have either closed down, become unreliable or introduced un-gamer friendly polices:

 

Photobucket

I minus

Imageshack

Photostevo.co.uk

static.zooomr.com

gfxuploader.com

imageupload.co.uk

image.dealoz.co.uk

Tinypic.com

Google Pictures

Drop Box

postimages.org

Hostingpics.net

 

If you have/had any images hosted with the above sites at the time they shutdown/introduced their new polices/became unreliable, then please re-host your images elsewhere ASAP!

 

Some Guides and Supplements have already been fixed by the people involved but now we need the help of the rest of the community to get on top of this problem :). Before you report a missing image, please make sure it is actually missing by doing the following:

 

- Trying to view it in several different browsers.

- Ensuring you have any and all ad-blockers or other plug-in/extension turned off that may be interfering with it.

- Clearing your temp files as sometimes they can get corrupted and glitch out certain images.

- Checking your browser and Firewall settings as sometimes these can mess things up.

- Ensuring you have all necessary permissions on the computer/network you're trying to view the problem image on.

 

Once you have proved an image has disappeared, then please attempt to contact the author of the relevant Guide or Supplement before posting here.

 

Examples of the missing image icons you will see:-

 

Example 1:

Example 2:

Example 3:

Example 4:

(This one is caused by using a link shortening site to save on characters when posting the image).

 

Example 5:

Example 6:

Example 7:

Recommended image Hosts:

 

- Imgur

- Flickr

 

If you know of any others then please let us know :).

 

 

Things you should report here:

 

  • Missing custom button smileys e.g. of the sort used for fighting games like Street Fighter, Dead or Alive etc.
  • Missing Screenshots.
  • Missing Guide/Supplement Title and Section banners.
  • Missing micro images e.g. of the sort used in the Guides for The Last of Us, Watch Dogs etc.
  • Missing Smileys.

Things you should not report here:

 

  • Missing Avatars, Signatures or Trophy Cards.
  • Missing images from the Game Info boxes - We know about this problem and the Admins are working hard to fix the problem.
  • Incorrect or missing trophy tiles or values.
  • Anything to do with adverts.
  • Links to broken images in Guides or Supplements on other sites.
  • Missing Trophy Tiles - 9/10 times this is caused by using an adblocker, turn that off and the tile(s) will reappear. All other main site trophy list issues should be reported here: LINK
  • Missing Trophy tiles in forum side Guides - These should be reported to the author of that Guide or a member of the Guide Team if that author is AWOL.
  • Missing images in locked Guides and Supplements - If it's been locked then it's not important any more.

If the original images or their backups cannot be located or suitably re-hosted, then any registered member of this site has permission to create suitable replacements. Any replacement images that are used, may qualify the author for the Jack of All Trades award :).

 

 

Post here if the following applies:

 

  • If the author or authors of an affected Guide or Supplement has/have been AWOL for more than 3 months.
  • If you don't hear from an author or authors after 2 weeks from the date of first contacting them.
  • The author(s) is/are unable or unwilling to correct the problem.
  • You are the creator of a missing image or images and wish to help replace any you created.
  • You are an artist who's willing to help replace any lost images where the original or backup file(s) can't be located.

 

When reporting an image, please use the following format because it will make them a lot easier to track :):-

 

Name of affected Guide/Supplement?:

Which part(s) of the Guide/Supplement is/are affected?:

What is missing e.g. Screenshot, custom smiley, banner etc?:

 

 

Notes to authors and artists:

 

To prevent images going missing in the first place, please use an image host that has a good reputation for not screwing up e.g. Imgur. Also, please do not use your on-site albums because any images hosted there will not be visible to people who aren't signed in.

 

Due to the sheer volume of missing images that we deal with, it has been decided that we will be deleting all non-essential missing images after 3 months of them being on the pile. If we are not familiar with a game, then we will be PM'ing the resident experts who have detailed knowledge of those Guides to determine if certain Images should be scrapped.

 

If you are an author that has recently replaced any missing images in a Trophy Guide, then please post here: LINK so the Guide Team can update the Main Site version of your Guide :).

 

It is strongly advised that all Authors and Artists subscribe to this thread, if you have used or provided any images to a Guide or Supplement in the last few years.

 

We will deal with future image hosting issues as and when they appear so there's no need to panic about the other image hosts just yet :).

If I am ever unavailable for some reason and an update is needed, then please PM the following staff member.

A list of missing images will be maintained here so please check this out before reporting an image as someone may have already beaten you to it :).

 

Key:

 

MIA = Missing in Action: The original and backup files for this image have been lost and can't be found. This tag is used after an image has been on the list for 2 weeks or more without progress (Staff use only).

C = Critical image: Without this image, the affected trophy is harder to obtain and the Guide/Supplement is less useful or crippled because of it.

M = Medium urgency: This image is important but not so much that you can't work out the trophy without it.

L = Low priority: The Guide/Supplement won't look as pretty but the info is still understandable.

Just thought I'd mention before someone else does: I'm well aware that all of the screenshots from the GTA V 100% Completion Supplement are gone. There's over 200 images in there and it'll take me many, many hours to fix. I'll pretty much have to match the screenshots up with the written description, since all the numbering I did when I uploaded onto ImageShack is gone.

 

I'm pretty busy right now, but I'll get round to it when I can. I 100% promise this will be before the PS4 version is released as I anticipate it will get a lot of sudden traffic for obvious reasons.

 

I went through the rest of my guides the other day and fixed all the banners and sub-headers; I think I got everything, but if there's anything I've missed then either post in here or let me know personally. Thanks guys!

Not sure how you want to include this in here but for most of Setsuna's guides all of the images for translated button inputs are missing due to being uploaded imageshack. He* did post on a couple of the guide threads that he* will be working to fix them though: link

 

If you want I can go through them and see what exactly is missing on which, because I know for a few of them the banners and text are fine, but all of them that have the alternate button input images are missing because they're all the same link.

For those looking for a good place to host images, I highly recommend Flickr. You get 1TB of free space, which is more than enough for all your hosting needs. I made the switch from Photobucket last year when I had bandwidth issues, and I've never looked back. Imgur is good too, but they delete the image if it doesn't get at least one view every 6 months, and this could affect the graphics on some of the guides for the unpopular games.

 

EDIT: I have some free time until Wednesday night this week, so I can try to replace as many of the images as I can for the authors that are no longer active. I'll be checking the front page of this thread periodically, but if someone feels like I've missed something, feel free to shoot me a PM or VM.

Images from 11 months ago and apparently no views are still available in my gallery :think:

Strange. That's what they claimed on their site. :think:

Link: Frequently Asked Questions - Imgur

 

EDIT 1: I just noticed it said "may be removed to create more space", so I'm assuming the storage on their end hasn't been filled yet. :)

 

EDIT 2: This guide has a broken banner:

Honestly the best way is to have someone upload the images right onto this site so they never go away and there are no more worries, but I didn't want to bug the staff over that many images at the time. :wall:

My supplement guide for RE5 does not have a banner. I have requested one and still waiting. Thanks.

 

I've got someone working on this now. Thanks for being patient.

 

Just remember that this thread is primarily being used to recover broken/lost images that had existing previously, and not for simply requested an image for the first time. If you would like to do that, please use the http://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/user-generated-content/94971-image-request-thread.html.

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't think any file/hosting site is completely reliable. This is the first time that a closure or policy change has really adversely affected the images in trophy guides, and indeed the forums as a whole. Also thank you for offering to help people out with their graphics and missing images. Any designers, please feel free to jump in on this thread and help to get as many of these images back or replace them. Thanks.

Any and all help from our art community will be greatly appreciated in getting these Guides and Supplements back on their feet but if anyone can provide replacement screenshots where needed, then please co-ordinate with the affected Guide/Supplement author(s) if they are still active (if they're not then we'll work something out) :).

I found some more guides with broken images:

 

Supremacy MMA | Guide Banner | Unknown | L

Alice: Madness Returns | Guide Banner | Unknown | L

Army of Two: The 40th Day - Chapters of Deceit DLC | Guide Banner | Unknown | L

Quantum Theory | Guide Banner | Unknown | L (The first image is the broken guide banner, the second image has been removed from the artist's account.)

 

EDIT: I found one more:

 

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch | Guide Banner | Unknown | L (The banner for both the NA/EU guide and the JP guide are broken, but they were the same image.)
