      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.

  1. practicing his ventriloquistic talents
  2. James Heriot creeping around
  3. I find that it is often as much about the decals as it is about the solutions. Some shrivel into melted goo with the weakest solutions and some are invulnerable to the most vicious attack. It is good to have an arsenal of choices for each occasion.
  4. the fizz has gone
  5. well here mainly BS (and I don't mean British Standard )
  6. red purple or brown? (I only like compliments I can take to the bank ) (Just kidding all compliments happily accepted) Drat beat me Frank but I guess it still works)
  7. hark at Max Hemingway
  8. snotter in a helmet
  9. keep his wheel rolling
  10. a self help book
  11. all frogs are crackers
  12. having their battle orders
  13. though galloping's more likely
  14. horse needs tidying up
  15. Thanks all. they are lovely kits although I do now recommend checking online for builds to watch out for whatever slight pitfalls there may be. The Snipe is a cracking kit, and one that I suspect will be 'Sold Out' in the not too distant future (Early model at least). The only thing I found to watch out for with it was that the lower part of the cockpit frame is meant to be exposed slightly between the wings and fuselage sides so at least the root of the upper wings should be painted prior to assembly and the lower part of the outside of the cockpit framing should be painted up. I didn't realise this myself until it was too late on my first one meaning some careful work with fine brushes to rectify the situation.
