      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.

Work in Progress and Ready for Inspection Threads in the WW1 Aircraft Area

Having spent a good few hours moving threads from here in between a forum upgrade and move, and with a good few more hours to go trawling through this section tidying up, it is disappointing to find yet more work in progress threads and ready for inspection threads cropping up that are squirreled away here.

WW1 Aircraft builds belong in the work in progress or ready for inspection sub forums of the aircraft area.

Any further build or inspection threads found here will be locked off, as it is wasting time for the mods.

As another offender of long standing can I seek further clarification. On the 1/72 conversions thread I asked if anyone had carried out any of the earlier suggestions. A member replied in the affirmative with a couple of photos of his converted BE12a. Is this permissible or is there a different procedure to follow ?

In general, and only speaking for myself, I find there is far less interest in eras removed from WW2 and the jet age. Personally, I would prefer WW1, Interwar for example, to be all encompassing and include WIP, RFI and Research in the one sub forum. Just my opinion but I have wondered if there is a technical reason that would prevent this.

Regards, Steve

Aviation work in progress one sub section, ready for inspection one sub section = Two sub sections. Simples!

Personally, I find the layout just about perfect, but you will never please everyone with the possible exception of Windows 8 which pleases no-one, well no-one I know. But I digress. I am just great full we have these sites to admire, question and find things. I can't imagine a more thankless job than moderator.

I fully agree Robin Windows 8.******* and having moderated a forum its an absolute pain at times so, like you, I am really grateful to all involved in putting this site together and keeping it current so we can indulge ourselves in this great hobby. For our part I guess we should be mindful where to post stuff to ease the burden a little.

:banghead: Okay, I suppose I have an apology to make. I'll start my WW1 WIP over again in the Heavy Metal forum if necessary. No worries.

Just seemed like the place for all WW1 postings. Should have done a little more reading.

I'm glad I read this - I know it's been here quite a while (2013) but I don't spend much time in the WW1 forum and I might well have done the wrong thing otherwise!
