      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.

BBC ident cards

Posted (edited)

So the BBC has decided to replace the swimming hippos with 'various group activities demonstrating oneness' - what a waste of licence payers money on PC poppycock. Could have saved a fortune by just bringing back the spinning blue and yellow globe !!

No , I'd have been happier if they'd not bothered wasting license payers money on an unnecessary change just for the sake of change.

If it ain't broke....

They can't keep the same idents forever - the ones they were using have been in use for quite a few years.

The BBC is one of the main drivers in one of the most important industries we have left in the UK, the Creative Industry. They need to be innovative and update their image every so often otherwise we'll still be watching 405 line black and white TV. Its a perfectly valid use of the license fee I reckon - much more so than more episodes of Eastenders! (See what I did there?)

Be grateful for what you get.  Compared to the TV available in the antipodes, its worth its weight in gold. Apart from soaps, antiques and home make over stuff of course ;)

I read Gregs post & was just about to reply when I scrolled down & saw your reply, exactly what I was going to say, apart from the Andy Pandy bit.

The RSPCA may have something to say about it, and a lot of little old ladies wouldn't be very pleased to hear how their £3 a month is being spent :unsure:

My beef with the new idents is that the groups are all 'mainstream'; no more uncommon pastimes. How about a group of model makers behind their club display at a model show?

I record all my tv on sky box and skip through all the adverts, opening titles and everything that isn't part of the programme I want to watch. So wasted on me.
