BTW: We are making good progress with our own 'in house' image server.
         It's already up and running.... sort of,  just setting up security, admin.... stuff like that.   :-)

Is there a possibility to reload the blocked photos (Photo@ucket issue) into the Cornelia Marie and N. Loredana topics?
I have all photos from the build (Loredana) on another server and have plenty of time to "repair" the topic ....

Well done Martin.

We have just looked at the N.loredana topic and noticed it's 25 pages long and runs for 4 years. It is now spoilt by the picture provider's stance.

It would be a mammoth task indeed to replace it with new pictures. Our system does not allow for inserted pictures in the text as you may be aware, so the effect would be different should it all be re-written. 

We really feel for you at this time as it would really need  'plenty of time' as you say, to re-write the topic.

Martin is working on a solution.  please see here....

Just tried following Martin's recommendation and downloading my albums from PB. I clicked the "Download album" command and a window appears apparently preparing the album for download.  I then get an e-mail saying the album is ready for download with a "Download" button to click.  I click on it, it takes me to the PB site - and a message saying "This download is no longer available"!  Perhaps they are already denying users the right to get their own photos back?  >>:-( >>:-(

No big deal, I do have all the originals, and if Martin cracks the MBM hosting site I will try and reconstruct the build logs.  But in future I will probably attach directly to the message as I have worked that out now. 

A plague on the operators of PB!  I hope they end up really miserable.

Ken...I am sure Danielle means to re-open the time slot for her [with her ownership sigh in] to allow her to add the images

Not just the system one hour default limitation......maybe a day or so...I am sure she could confirm a requirement with a PM

Sadly, the reality is that they are probably laughing all the way to the Bank.
We will never know how many nor how much was actually paid.
The bigger fish, such as Amazon, fleabay, etc, etc, would have made commercial decisions and paid up.

You are correct in your surmise Derek.  I did explain, however that the same result could not be achieved due to the picture location problem.

We are working very hard to overcome it as it affects all members with this type of picture storage account.

I've been paying $29 a year since 2005 to Photobucket for over 7000 photos and my linking hasn't been affected, it's a grandfathered deal on a plan they dont even offer anymore. You don't get somethin for nothin lol.

Thats very good Brian.
I've been with SmugMug for many years and no such treat.
However my latest bill with UK VAT added was under 45. I get unlimited everything and I've many thousands of photos across the web. I feel I get value for money and unfailing reliability but it will all end with me or if the money runs out  {-)

Luckily I only have 1 WIP thread on here, although many more have been ruined on various other forums.

But as such it wouldn't take me long to reupload the images.

I'm a member of the Flory Models scale modelling forum and they made the decision to temporarily enable editing of any of your previous posts so if people wanted they could go back through and reupload photos.

Would it be possible to do something like this on here? I'd quite like to fix my thread as it's about the only one out there regarding building the Model Slipway Conserver.


Also, regarding downloading photos from Photobucket, I too have been having all sorts of problems doing it. I've been trying the download button for a few weeks but never had much luck other than being able to download the odd smaller album.


However, the thing that worked for me was to download the Photobucket App to my smartphone and download it all via that. I know it's not an ideal solution for everybody, but it will download the photos to a folder called Pictures/Photobucket on your memory card or internal storage, you can then connect your phone to your PC and copy it all over. The only issue with this is that it doesn't seem to download them in their original resolution, but rather a slightly smaller compressed size. This isn't a massive problem as they're perfectly adequate for posting on forums and it means they download super quick. I also went through my 'bucket' and moved all my photos in batches of around 100, into separate folders, though I'm not sure that was entirely necessary. Considering I have about 2500 photos on there it surprisingly didn't take very long.

We did contempalte that but for safety / continuinty / the 'Great Forum crash of 2012?*', we've desided to go a different route.
We'll be asking Mayhemers to use    Quote (copy and  paste)  from their old posts ammend them and the Mods will reincert them back into the original posts.

NB: ModelBoatMayhem Image site will be ready for testing in a few days!   :o

That's still $120 per year, as I read it, if you want linking.
