Beware Photobucket
« on: June 30, 2017, 17:02 »
Just a heads up to those people that use photobucket, they have changed their terms and conditions for users. There is no longer free linking for 3rd party website hosting.
This means that if you have photos on photobucket and you have linked them to a website such as PA or any other forum/blog they will disappear and this is what you will see

I think they will have some serious legal challengers to this but the average blogger will be forced to pay up the $400-00us to reinstate their photos

It's been long coming, I cleaned all my pictures/videos out some time back and closed the account.

It also mean the pictures/videos linked to this site are no longer viewable.

Pictures can be re posted directly to the forum if needed but not the videos.

I just updated the gold coin posts and had to remove a few pictures that don't show anymore thanks to photobucket.

Photobucket is a nightmare at the moment. Takes ages to load and then not properly. 
Can still manage to post my images on a third party site, but let's wait and see how long it lasts.

I  have posted on site regarding  this subject on site as well ~

What I suggest ~ is pay the $5.99 for  < 30 days> (ONLY pay these  pirates via Paypal ~ to avoid being placed on a monthly  payment con)  and go thru  your posts ands "snip" each  one and replace the  ransom ware photo ~

Or simply  remove the  logo image and replace the photo by standard upload ~ What ever it is going to be  a painful exercise  regardless

I for one will be endeavouring to repair the damage ~

AND I WILL be  closing off my acc. as they  make money potentially from our photos ~ $25 for a glossy print I believe ~

It has never been compulsory to post pictures on Photo Bucket, it was a "free" service.

As always "free" have an expiry date, which can be upsetting to those that live off it.

One forum give you privileges and charges a yearly site sponsor fee, with no complains by those that pay up.

This forum have free membership even to those that only come to obtain free info or sell a few things. Some long time members that have never made a post seem to be here for the free private message system.  ???

John 

I believe they  will keep  'your' ~ and my  PB  collection as they first and fore most potentially can make money from  peeps requesting copies of  our photos @ <$25> a print ~ 

It is up to us as individuals to delete  and or close the PB account ~ I for one will not use  Third party servers EVER again ~ 

I only post  on War Relics.eu  in addition to here ~ I was on four sites but dropped the rest  some time ago ~ 
 
I have read  and seen some other sites which  ONLY  use third party  hosts ~ are in tatters and decimated ~ I feel sorry for the owners/ admins.  

Just image what  would happen if Farce Book went the same way ~ 

My  partner Merete reckons that would never happen ~ but pardon my skepticism ~ in a World  flooded with  money  gouging  afoot galore ~ 

I have begun to  replace ALL the  PB images on site  ~ I did  a few pages yesterday ~  BUT the  important thing I have found so far si that NOT ALL the images are MIA ~ (??)

This makes the process very easy  ~ I merely  snip the  image on this site and save to a folder and then delete the PB l;ink and replace with my snip job ~

The win-win here is that  the Kinbuck Two / AMDRH ~ site benefits as the snips are  in 10's of KB as opposed to  100-1000s of KB ~ so this web site  saves space on it's server !

They got me last night , now i have many pages on the forum with no images , my apologies to all . While i don't expect a totally free service i think the $499 a year they have asked for so that i can show my own pics to other people is pretty steep . $50 would be acceptable to me . I will see if i can replace a few of the photo's but i doubt if my patience will last long .
