      PhotoBucket are no longer permitting 3rd party hosting   01/07/17

      As most of you are now painfully aware, Photobucket (PB) are stopping/have stopped allowing their members to link their accumulated years of photos into forums and the like, which they call 3rd party linking.  You can give them a non-refundable $399 a year to allow links, but I doubt that many will be rushing to take them up on that offer.  If you've previously paid them for the Pro account, it looks like you've got until your renewal to find another place to host your files, but you too will be subject to this ban unless you fork over a lot of cash.   PB seem to be making a concerted move to another type of customer, having been the butt of much displeasure over the years of a constantly worsening user interface, sloth and advertising pop-ups, with the result that they clearly don't give a hoot about the free members anymore.  If you don't have web space included in your internet package, you need to start looking for another photo host, but choose carefully, as some may follow suit and ditch their "free" members at some point.  The lesson there is keep local backups on your hard drive of everything you upload, so you can walk away if the same thing happens.   There's a thread on the subject here, so please use that to curse them, look for solutions or generall grouse about their mental capacity.   Not a nice situation for the forum users that hosted all their photos there, and there will now be a host of useless threads that relied heavily on photos from PB, but as there's not much we can do other than petition for a more equitable solution, I suggest we make the best of what we have and move on.  One thing is for certain.  It won't win them any friends, but they may not care at this point.    Mike.

Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness

This announcement is no longer active


Deja vu all over again.  Due to yet another a Denial of Service attack from a well-known dodgy subnet of crims for hire.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software, and the one we experienced recently after a small system update. 


DDoS attacks are seldom random, but instead have an agenda, either to ruin a competitor, leach traffic because people can't be bothered slogging through the treacle-like sloth, or just pure malice.  They're usually commissioned by someone with a motive, which makes them worse than the random "scrawling on your site with a crayon" type attack.  It's probably by now pretty obvious who feels it's a good idea to mess with Britmodeller (aka, you the members that want to be here), but I doubt it'll stop them.  They're just a small group of small people that take delight in destroying the work of others to make themselves feel good.  If you listen to them ranting about us on their favourite haunting grounds, you'd think they were referring to a different site, but then they've never let the truth get in the way of a good story. :dull:


Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".  At the end of the day, they're just spoiling your enjoyment of your hobby.  Isn't that nice of them? :fraidnot:
