I migrated some of my content to an alternative answer, but the image links inside the post are not resolving.

They are listed as things like:

![japanese mon][3]

In the text, and then at the bottom, literally

[3]: http://i.stack.imgur.com/tcm7O.png

Surprisingly, the images are loading fine here. I'm not sure what the problem is there.

There must have been a problem with the copy-paste you used. The spaces in front of each of the numbers [3] and so forth were not normal spaces. Deleting them and adding in 2 spaces again fixed the problem.

Adding spaces back isn't necessary btw. –  Mat Jan 1 '13 at 20:04
I like to add them because the image auto-uploader thing adds them. And it looks nicer when editing. –  animuson Jan 1 '13 at 20:05
Copying the exact source and pasting it here on Meta works though, oddly enough. –  Asad Jan 1 '13 at 20:07
Interesting. I actually used CTRL+X, CTRL+V on this here Windows machine in Chrome. –  bobobobo Jan 1 '13 at 20:07
