      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.

They weren't so happy when someone did it to them a number of years back when they ran their own forum.

The trouble is, that when it does happen to them, they don't stop and think “maybe I was wrong doing the same thing to 'A'”, they just think “poor me, how can anyone do this to totally innocent me”. They won't see it as the same thing, because after your perceived evil deeds, you deserve it, but they, the White Knight's of Absolute Righteousness, don't. The Adam's family have got less bat's in the attic than this lot! :mental:

I am glad to,see the site up and running this morning. Missed it yesterday when it was down. Mike, I am with the others, if it is affecting your health, walk away for a while. You need to live a long life so you can become a crotchety, old, curmudgeon like myself!  You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Incidentally, that's libellous, rottweilers would object to their name being associated with these bods.

Indeed I rather like Rottweilers and you could never find a spineless Rottweiler they are brave and noble. These chaps are invertebrates from the worm family and, as far as I am, concerned the worms will only get me when I am dead.

I apologise unreservedly to all rottweilers for my unnecessary comparison with... :shrug:

 

Support have come back with some new configurations, so let's see how those work, eh? :)

I think we need a new word for it

 I can help with that, I've got lots of good sailor words B)

 

PS: If it does become a bit much your Mikeness, I'm quite sure there'd be those of us who'd put a 

hand up to assist in whatever way shape or form (Bags not the Rottys though, awful dog)

Age doesn't necessarily bring maturity.

Thank goodness for that!

I was worried that I might have to get serious when I get old (next year!)

 

Regarding slowness,I noticed that when submitting a reply it is sometimes taking up to half a minute to complete and that if I am on for short visits there is no problem but the longer I'm on the slower it gets. I usually abandon then and start again.

I've only just sat down at my desk myself, so I can't comment on the speed today yet.  I'll keep an eye on things for the next few hours, and have a mooch about the main control panel on the server to see if there are any symptoms of someone making a bid to take us down.

Lol.

I feel sorry for Mike and all the hassle he and the support and whoever else involved is having. However, I even feel sorrier for those :swear: causing the trouble, how bad and miserable must their life's be? 

Keep it up Mike and Co, :thumbsup::clap2:
