I have started to manually restore some of the images for the forum, therefore these will slowly start to show up, and should make the site a little more usable.
I'd just like to say thanks to the Internet Archive Wayback machine http://archive.org/web/
which is where I am downloading each image one by one to the server to restore them. Obviously this is taking quite a bit of time lol.
I got the forum images manually by saving each one, then got 50 screenshots manually and used that to make a script to pull the rest down and save them to the right place automatically.
I've managed to restore 2,130 images that were missing from FTV, 2,098 were screenshots.
Thats no where near everything, but its enough to make some of the front page and the anime pages have images again. Unfortunately, that is the best we can do in terms of a restoration without any backups.
All of these 2,130 images were retrieved from the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, without them this would not have been possible. I will therefore be making a donation to them on behalf of FTV.
I found another 9 forum/site images... 2,139 now lol.
Manually added another 90 screenshots which the script couldn't handle on its own.. 2,229 images recovered!
Note: It will take some time for the content delivery network to update, so you may find more images start to appear over the next couple of days.
