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 :serious:

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 :mad:

Exactly the sentiment around the forum and blog world.

They have ruined their reputation and many sites.

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.

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

What are your copyright and ownership terms for photos uploaded?
All your questions should be able to be answered by checking out the Terms of Use : VerticalScope - Driven by Enthusiasts

Let me know if you have any more.
