      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. No. No. And No! The C word is unwelcome in the mod area, never mind the rest of the forum.
  2. Damn thats a shock, had no idea he was ill , as just saw he had Leukaemia ,,,, used watch Batman as a kid , and recently see his character in family guy lol.. Thoughts and best wishes to his Family and Friends R.I.P
  3. But she's the one wearing the white stuff
  4. So if you are not Rob 1, just who are you? It's adorable that you have posted quite a weighty viewpoint but not quite had the courage to identify yourself. Yep, it's true a number of persons have been removed from the site for disagreeing with the Mods. Normally after ignoring a rule multiple times and then being called to task about it and disagreeing vehemently with the Mods before flouncing off. The number who have been banned initially by the Mods compared to those who just flounced off in a huff and tipped up on this and other sites announcing that the nasty Mods had in fact banned them is very different. But why spoil a good story that makes you seem all cool and edgy with the others for peer group acceptance. As as for moderating, we do make mistakes, have made mistakes and will make mistakes but having witnessed some of the behaviour behind the scenes, there are people in the modelling community who really should not hold their heads up high in public and act all aggrieved. The snippet posted before as a screenshot is not the half of it. My favourite comment from another site by one of these people who consider themselves to be a "prominent" member of the modelling community said it all when he mentioned that he was such, and most of his friends who were also banned, were also "prominent members of the modelling community with some sway" was telling, both in arrogance and the fact that he was unable/unwilling to make the correlations between his behaviour, their behaviour and why they were all friends. Birds of a feather? As a point of note, this individual has also been banned from other sites. "Prominent" members get treated exactly the same as other members here, that's what probably grates the most...... On here, you are not judged on your last model build, you are judged on the next post that you make. Because your abilities at sticking bits of your plastic together and painting them together with your "prominence" and sense of self worth are not an excuse for behaving like some have, nor do they hold any water with the Mod team for excuses. Parity.
  5. Really nice build and paintwork!
  6. And just to dot the T's and cross the I's. Please keep any religious/atheist/agnostic rants away from here as well please. It does not belong here in this thread.
  7. Please leave the political commentary out of this thread. It will not be tolerated.
  8. Lady Grey is Early Grey with citrus notes from peel and reduced bergamot. Its pretty good on its own, cold or hot with a large sploosh of rum in it. Normally my tea has to be NATO and strong enough to stand my spoon up in it. But the Grey's are a nice change.
  9. No problems, but to avoid confirming it, please read the rules carefully
  10. Link There you go matey
  11. And the no eBay rule, the no repeat post rule and the no selling items out of the buy and sell area or his own traders area rule, before flouncing off with accusations of being anti French. We don't have advertising on the site as a revenue generator, therefore we do not accept traders advertising their wares outside of their own area on site. Kusti is not Arctic Decals, therefore he is just giving a heads up.
  12. Takes up less space than the mossie though. Length of the mossie is 13.5m and wingspan 16.5m. Versus the Lightning at 16.8m and 10.6m Certainly doable.
  13. From speaking to the Airfix team a few years ago, the gist was it had to be an iconic aircraft. My definition of that would be a type that would be instantly recognisable as that aircraft by the general public. Most people would recognise a Spitfire, a Messerschmidt etc. But a Vampire, Gladiator etc? To that end, I would take a punt at 3, maybe four aircraft that would meet that: For the RAF - Hawk or Lightning. For the USMC - Corsair. For the USN - Hellcat. Much as I would love to see a Bucc or a Spey Toom, I think it would be a pipe dream for a bit longer. Mind you, any of the four I would be happy with.
  14. Happy Birthday
