      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.

Greetings from the Fens

Hello, well I got back into modelling about 4 years ago after a hiatus during which I served my 22 years, serving Queen and country, and then had another career as an IT engineer. I enjoy AFV modelling mainly with a bit of a dabble in the other genre's when the mood takes me. I am the webmaster for my local IPMS club, Wisbech, (www.wipms.co.uk) and I am normally on their table at any shows we go to. I look forward to conversing with fellow members :D

Welcome aboard. It's great to have another AFV modeller as we are a little bit outnumbered. But you'll find the ones on here a very helpful.

Hi, Holdfast.  I am also from Wisbech, or very close by, anyway.  I didn't know Wisbech had an IPMS group.  I was only recently aware of the West Winch group.

PM me if you like and we can chat.  OK, I'm not an AFV fan, but I was a professional modelmaker, so any help I can offer, please ask.  Good work is good work in the end and Fenland is generally a wasteland for enthusiasm.

 

Cheers,

Martin
