Photobucket (2)

It looks like Photobucket have started zapping links to pictures.

Some still work others don't.

I've copied all my images over to Imgur, just in case.


If you find some of your pictures replaced with the 'blackmail' picture and you have an alternative link then please 'Report' the post with the updated link and we will get to them ASAP.

This is a nightmare for forums, especially this one with 10 years worth of informative posts, guides and how-to's heavily reliant on the content within photo's

Especially with older posts where the member may no longer be active so won't be around to move their photos and restore the thread

Exactly the sentiment around the forum and blog world.

They have ruined their reputation and many sites.

We're going to try and develop a way to fix all the PB images posted to the site, but so far we don't have anything concrete.

There is a extension you can download though if you are using Chrome. I've been using it the last few days and it effectively allows viewing of linked in images.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ifiaedg?hl=enm

Probably won't work forever though

Interesting ploy.

Just need a way to grab the images and put them somewhere else, then re-link.

We recommend uploading your images to civinfo.com, that way you'll know the images will be safe in case the other 3rd party hosting sites start to go the same way as PB.

Only supporters have that facility.

One of the perks.

However, some members are having issues with attached thumbnails.

What are your copyright and ownership terms for photos uploaded?

Lee was the last one to jump in there and respond. It was reported up and we're looking into it.
