Gentleman, I was just looking once again through the Mannlicher forum and noticed that since this photobucket business as well as some other third party photo sharing sites, has happened we are loosing photos at an alarming rate from our forums. Many of the post now have nothing but text where there were many fine photos before. We are going to have to do something as many of these photos are needed (as well as wanted) for article illustration purposes. I am no expert on this topic but we must do something, there are so many photos missing now it is really bad.

Waidmannsheil.

I started working on a photo forum hosting programme for NE as a measure to replace the extortionist photobucket site for members.

However it appears the photobucket site won't allow their own users to access photos at all without a fee. So all those photos are effectlyely lost.

I would be wary of using photobucket at all. Their "tactics" may well kill off their site completely. IMO.

Preventing third party site display is one thing. Forcing people to view photos ON their site allows advertising revenue. BUT forcing users to pay to RETRIEVE their own photos is extortion IMO.

There was another thread on photos somewhere where an alternative site was suggested. Trying to find the thread.

Free? Really how can any one realistically provide you free photohosting. Somebody has to pay for those hosting servers.

I pay $23.95 a year for a 8 GB fotoshare account.I have had this account 2001.

Here is the stats on my account.

Pictures in account:7462
Disk Space:8 GB
Average space for each picture: 418.9 KB
Disk space used:2.98 GB
Disk Space Remaining:5.02 GB
Monthly Bandwidth Used: 2.33 GB
Monthly Allocated Bandwidth (5 times disk space):40.00 GB

Here is the info on the them:

https://www.fototime.com/pages/features_fototime

Simple to use, no ads. Easy to generate links for posting on the various board, and how I have posted all my pictures here for years. Lots and extra services, T-shirts and coffee cups as well as reprint services.

I agree with what you are saying however I posted a photo on the 275 Rigby thread from Buckstix and it all happened with no exchange of money. When you click on the link in the above post it even states that it is a free service for forums etc. Maybe they have ads somewhere.

Anyway it worked.

Last month's Kodiak goat hunt. Hardest physical activity I've ever done. Notice that he's tied to the rock above and the trekking poles are also holding him in place.

Gentlemen,

Please DO NOT CANCEL your photobucket accounts. As even if you do not pay any subscription fees to pb the images seem to be viewable periodically and sporadically from time to time.

At these times, if the opportunity is available, thread images can be recovered, located elsewhere and the threads restored.

All takes time to do however. But if the account is deleted, your images shared on NE will be gone for good.
