      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.

Whilst on a Easter break to Edinburgh, I was allowed to call into the store by SWMBO.

 

What a treasure trove! It was a delight to find such a wonderful selection of kits and such a wide variety of manufacturers along with a wide selection of ancillary items from paint to filler to varnish and everything in between (or so it seemed!) I was thoroughly spoilt for choice. In the end I decided to get the Airfix 1/48 Meteor (which I had been after for a while), the new revel 1/32 Mk IX Spitfire, and an Airfix 1/72 Martlet.

 

Anyone visiting Edinburgh - GO AND VISIT THE STORE!!!!!!!! You won't be disappointed! Even SWMBO enjoyed going in!

 

Edit - Forgot to mention this - the better half turned round to me and asked "do these guys go to Telford - I recognise the signage above the door?"....

Seems my little trips to telford are starting to rub off on her - sadly no sign of her picking up pieces of plastic or tubes of glue yet.......:hmmm:

Do you mean Wonderland models ??

Yes Wonderland Models, why?

I know exactly what I was saying when I made my post, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the actual store, not enough money and too much choice. Would have bought more if I could, only issue I had was that I was visiting by train and not in the car so I could only buy what I could carry and not any more. If I had more funds available, I would certainly have bought more than I did.

Depending on how you're viewing the site, it isn't always immediately obvious which forum a post is in. As you don't mention any store by name in your post or subject line, I suspect Panzer Vor!!! missed that you'd posted in the Wonderland forum.

As you're bigging them up anyway, an extra shoutout for them in the subject and post wouldn't do any harm :-)

There is but one Wonderland models sub forum on this forum - I posted my comment in the correct area - therefore I can only be making my comments about the physical store and location in Edinburgh about Wonderland Models. I cannot magically make another sub-forum up out of thin air. All the devices I have to access this forum - phone, tablet, PC, laptop clearly show that this is the correct area.

 

No other topic within this area mentions Wonderland models by name, they don't reference Wonderland by name because they are all in the Wonderland models sub forum!

 

I personally do not see any reason to amend the subject title - It was a visit on 15-014-17 - and it is in  the correct area of the forum to which it relates.
