      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.

Airliners.net and copyright

Gents and Ladies,

 

This was posted in the Airliners area but we have noticed it is spreading over the whole site now regarding copyrighted photographs. Airliners.net have not allowed direct linking to their images for a while now and have been known to legally pursue those sites which do link to their images. 

 

How does it affect you on Britmodeller? Quite simply, post a raw photo from Airliners.net and it will be removed.

If you continue to post them you will attract a warning and a suspension followed by removal from the site reserved for the very hard of understanding. If you decide to edit out the Airliners.net tagging along the bottom, and we find it (we do check) then it will be an automatic ban.

 

Airliners.net have a lot of money, they are subscription based to use their forum, they also sell the photographs for stock images and rely on links to their website to generate traffic for further sponsorship and advertising revenue. Therefore they can afford to chase down websites and individuals who do not follow this simple requirement and we are not willing to put BM at risk over this.

 

This also applies to any other sites who share the same policy. Therefore please think before you post any picture that has not been taken by you.

 

Regards

The Britmodeller Moderating Team.

Its as easy, maybe even easier, to post the link than a copyrighted image.

If in doubt; do it the safer way.

Here is the legal requirement from Airliners.net: LINK

 

Hello Julien, thank you for the useful heads-up. And Black Knight as well.

 

I just clicked on your link and got a 404 not found error - a transient?

 

Cheers,

Alex.

This is how I understand it:

 

Don't: Upload other peoples work to Photobucket, Flickr or other hosting services, and then post it here.

 

Do: if you don't own an image provide a link.

This may be aimed at me after I posted a picture of a Surya Kiran, Kiran on another thread for reference purposes only.

 

I clicked on the picture in question,  then clicked again on 'copy image address' thinking that only the linked address would appear, however it seems that since the BM site has been updated it now opens up the address therefore displaying the image in all it's glory.

Not aimed at you, it is happening more and more. If you post the link in there should be a dialog box which pops up and gives you the option to post as a link.

That's always been the way, even back as far as V.2.2! :shocked:

Don't click on the photo; copy the address line as the link.

 

This is the way :)
