I’d love to be able to get the PC forum back, but for now as @fixmypcmike notes, you can see images, links, etc., in the old forums using the Greasemonkey/user script in my sig. (Works for Chrome and FF, but you have to install Greasemonkey on FF first.)
They’ve got a pretty clear priority order that they’ve stated… They need to get the store sorted (it’s getting there!), then fix up the forums, then add back the galleries, and then they’ll probably have some time to try and make the old forums work. (That last part is a guess…there may be other priorities along the way.)
So…for now, we work around it. Give it a try and let me know how it works for you!
