More and more images go missing. Can the cooked HTML be rebuilt?

I just noticed that the uploaded images in this answer are broken. Images with this text are being shown instead:

The image you are
requesting does not exist
or is no longer available.


Curiously the images show up just fine when I clicked "edit".

Apparently the correct URLs in the markdown start with http://i.stack.imgur.com, but stackoverflow rewrites these into broken URLs that start with http://i.imgur.com.


Well, firstly they didn't look broken to me; here's one - looks fine:

old url

However, just to make sure, I've edited it to force a re-render, and it now has the stack urls:

new url

  • The first image you post here is broken for me, see screenshot. I guess we are not seeing the same thing.

  • @Marc, now that you made a dummy edit to that post, to enforce the stack to make it into the HTML: you're aware of More and more images go missing. Can the cooked HTML be rebuilt?, right?
