We are aware of the problem, but in two weeks it's absolutely impossible to download all the images from those two hosts and upload them on another host... It would take too much time (many years  ::) ) and terabytes of space on hard disks...
If you go to other forums you'll see that noone is trying to do so, and after all, this has already happened with other hosts, Someimage a few months ago and Imagehaven some years ago.
There are more than 100.000 topics in this forum, in two weeks it would be impossible even to check which topics have images on those two hosts and which don't...
The only thing we can do is saving some topics, maybe a few hundreds, but even this is very, very difficult...  :(

The problem has been solved, as you can read on the front page of the two hosts:
