      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.

My apologies spaddad - my irony detector was not switched on.

My irony detector gets worn after a bout of surfing the interweb, it's hard to tell who's being ironic and who's being a moron nowadays. :rolleyes:

Well, after finding fault with the December issue I have to say that, having just finished the January issue I have to say that, in my opinion, this one is very good! I haven't noticed any faux pas - but you may have! Anyway, I am happy to be even handed in my opinions about magazines so I am pleased to be able to be positive this month!!  Wondering if I need to buy a FLY Wessex now !! Very interesting article about Special Hobby and their relationship with CMK and MPM. All I need to know is the relationship between CMR and CMK - are they part of the same group as well?

No, as I understand it, CMR are stand alone (although they had a historical relationship, with each partner taking the Czech masters name when they split)

Thanks Dave

Well, that's straightforward then!

I like the idea of having decent reviews/previews  of model ships as they seem to be a poorly served section in modelling magazines that usually do stuff with aircraft.

 

Just bought the November edition of SAM to see it's quarterly section of Ship models and noticed that the same section is the November edition of Military Modelcraft International also word for word. Whilst supportive of the inclusion of the article on ships, I find the duplication in a sister magazine quite disappointing, especially in the same month !

 

Bad move Gary ( and David Grummitt ) as the duplication is highly annoying !
