Extreme Kites has been around for more than a decade, that's more than 3650 days, 87,600 hours, 5,256,000 minutes, 315,360,000 seconds. Somewhere along that vast timeline many people have contributed knowledge to the community, they have increased the wealth of information we all share and reference. This is what makes communities like Extreme Kites amazing places to contribute.
I see content and knowledge shared as part of the journey of this community. Reflecting on this, something that has been bothering me recently is small holes appearing at times in very old content, here is one example. This was a great post back in 2008 and it could of been useful to one of our members recently, unfortunately the images are no longer part of the post as a "remote image" service was used to host the files.
From today, because history matters I've implemented a new solution on Extreme Kites. When a member decides to use a "remote" file or image in their post our system will automatically create a local copy of it and treat it as an attachment. This enables us to better preserve useful contributions so the community can continue to experience, read and enjoy those contributions in their entirety for many years to come.
