    Has anyone heard of this mod before?

    Let's say for example. A user links 10 images to a thread. It becomes a popular thread.

    2 years later. The images are deleted. And now the linked images are gone from the Thread.

    So the thread becomes worthless without the images. Which is sad.

    Is there an add-on where everytime an image is linked. It makes a second copy for backup. And once the orignal image becomes broken. The 2nd copy would be replaced.

    This would be good because often i go to forums and after a couple years old thread the linked images get deleted and the images are the best part of the threads, usually.

    Does something like this exist?

    If you set the image proxy to never expire, you have this behavior out of the box.

    This is how I have it setup and it works well, the only problem the URL apparently becomes rather long. @AndyB has an add on that will download hot linked image
