Is there anybody who can check and update the picture links? None in the stickies are showing up, and that makes it really difficult to make anything that would end up being accurate.

Most likely they will never be updated. They were mostly hosted on Photobucket who overhauled there user agreement and now most of the links are broken because nobody wants to pay monthly to host their photos online.

I've been having this struggle too. The best luck I've been having so far is actually on pinterest. A lot of people have "pinned" photos from here and if you click on the photo it will take you to the thread but the photo links in the thread are dead. I've been working to collect some of these on my pinterest board: https://www.pinterest.com/mindputtee/x-wing-pilot/

You still have to do a bit of detective work to figure out where the photo on pinterest matches up with the words but I've found it to be a lot better than nothing!

If anyone is looking for a host comparable to old Photobucket, ImgBB has been serving me pretty well. It's not as organized as Photobucket was, and you can't have albums within albums, but it's easy to get direct links, HTML and BB codes, and it's easy to upload to and manage. And it's free. I've been trying to slowly move all of my Photobucket images over there but Photobucket doesn't make it very easy to download your pictures from your account...
