      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. Hello, i have a Wallace and Gromit motorbike and Sidecar I'm about to start building. I've read that the plastic is hard to glue. Does anyone have any suggestions/advice/recommendations of a suitable glue to use. Also any suggestions for vallejo, gunze or tamiya shade of red to use? Thanks in advance
  2. Hi, I've been offered a sparmax Dh-125 by afriend and wondered if you can fit a smaller nozzle from the sparmax range to it as it comes with a 0.5mm.
  3. Hello, I joined recently as I'm getting back into building models, it beats watching the TV. Currently got a 1/32 e type on the go using some of the tips form Roy matt Blacks lightwieght conversion thread eslewhere. In recent years I've built a 1/24 airfix imprezza fro my eldest son, red arrows gnat for my second son and the red baron and an Armourfast sherman firefly with my 3rd son. I have an anti pestovan , wallace and gromit motorbike and airplane and shaun the sheep tractor to do along with the shaun the sheep landrover in the post. They will keep me busy and I have been banned from buying anymore until they are done, I'm wondering which to do first. I'm looking into getting an airbrush and compressor to help with painting them, I've used rattle cans for the subaru and the jag, not a great fan of them, they throw loads of paint at high pressure with mixed results. ttfn John
