      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.

Critiquing rules.

If you are planning to offer up a critique of a build in here, please bear the following in mind:

'Critiquing' current, or completed builds

The critiquing is limited to the build itself, not the accuracy of the kit or the subject matter. If the paint scheme is out, or the original kit/aftermarket accessory for example a cowling or spinner is the wrong shape, so be it, point it out politely but its not a big issue if the builder cannot get the right paint colour etc.

The critiquing/advice is meant for the skill set of the builder, not the accuracy of the build and is meant to encourage development of those skill sets and the sharing of ideas.

For those posting their builds.

1. Well done for posting your build here. :thumbsup:

2. You have the right to expect fair and unbiased treatment, likewise if a fair piece of advice is given, please accept it. :smartass:

3. The criticisms if any are not meant to personal attacks, if you think they are report the post. :bobby:

4. If there are any specific points of the build that you require help with, highlight them and describe your issues, otherwise you might get something unexpected! :winkgrin:

4. We'll be looking forward to seeing the next build! :popcorn:

For those persons offering Constructive Criticism or build advice.

Thank you for taking the time to encourage or offer advice to someone. :goodjob:
If you are going to criticise someones build publicly the following guidelines will apply:

1. Be Fair. Is it the fault of the kit :deadhorse: or the fault of the builder? :dunce:
2. Be Constructive not Destructive of the builders skill, offer up the good points as well as the bad. Remember we all started out somewhere. :frantic:

3. Give a solution to your perceived problem to how either you would do it with examples preferably from you or a link to another person who tackled the same problem. :pipe:

4. You help one another as adults on an equal basis, no personal attacks will be tolerated. :fight:
5. If you critique someone, you are open yourself to prove you know what you are talking about :pardon: . Armchair critics are not welcome! :shoot:
