      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.

How to get rid of pinned topics?

Hi everyone,

 

I tried to find an answer through the FAQ and other forum areas and didn't find it... Did anyone come across a pinned topic (from old version)?.. I still got some of those pinned topics and can't un-pin them. Are there any solutions? They always come first on top with a green pin symbol... Help me please :wall:

You can't get rid of pinned topics, the moderating team have pinned them as they are deemed useful to the membership. It doesn't take much to scroll down to the other topics.

Interesting, 

I spent ages one day trying to get rid of the ones at the top of the aircraft WIP page as I thought I had somehow inadvertent pinned them. When I went to another forum that I had never before visited and their were already pinned topics the penny dropped and I realised that someone else had pinned them. Are the pinned topics there just as examples of the sort of things that should be in each forum? Is there anything special about them?

We're working on an alternative system to pinning useful threads to the top of a section, as eventually you'll have to scroll pages just to get to the new stuff if we keep pinning things.  We've not yet thought it all through yet, so you'll have to continue looking at them for a bit longer, but we will get around to it eventually :)

It's not really an issue now that I know what they are. As I say, they initially worried me as I thought I had done something to pin it there (and obviously I assumed they were only pinned on my log on not everyone's).
