If this one of the Flyhawk USS Ward kits?

I just "accidentally" bought one for $11.

Hi Matthew. Yes, Flyhawk. That is their luxery kit with resin bits which are a little nicer than the plastic parts, but worth it. Excellent accident for $11!

Yes Jose, go to one of those posts and edit it. You should have a file upload option. Once you have the new images in place you can delete the Photobucket code in that post.



Thank you sir! I'll get to it this weekend for sure.

I had a sleazy impression of PB from the first taste, years ago. I'm glad I never fell into that trap. You always get a great dealer from the crack dealer when you're a new customer. Then.....

It was a dirty trick. All sites should block Photobucket from here on out. It would prevent them from substituting their own advertisement for free instead of the intended content, and deter anyone who might be leaning towards paying their ransom. Photobucket should not profit from their extortion in any way.

There are plugins available for Chrome and Firefox that circumvent the current third party block. I don't know how long they'll work once Photobucket figures out what's going on, but it's at least a temporary fix.

They're offering a new option, now. $99.99 billed annually

I clipped the text of the offer posted to post it here, I hope that's OK.


Store up to 300,000 Photos
Unlimited 3rd Party Hosting (Non-commercial)
Unlimited Forum Embedding
Unlimited Sharing
$99.99 BILLED ANNUALLY

Still seems expensive, to me.

personally I'll never go back to PB...their treatment of the community was disgraceful...I logged onto their site for the first time in some months today as someone asked for a link to pictures that I had posted on a forum (now broken) to help them with an engine build, I also run a classic Porsche as well as making models and someone needed help with his engine rebuild. The site was awful, too damn slow and adverts galore...I hope that I don't have to log back on any time soon.

Pete

I opt'd to pay the ransom last June rather than have the over 1,000 images I have posted on this website go dead. I had planned to use the time until the renewal to find another image hosting website as easy to use as Photobucket. I have not found one doesn't require more work at "sizing" my images for posting, or otherwise is a pain to use. At $100 a year it is worth my time to stay with Photobucket and NOT have to attempt reposting everything. I'm NOT happy with them in the least for now they handled this, common curtsy for their "customers" would have been an explanation and notice a couple of months before the change date. I understand that their service costs something to provide (the days of everything on the web is free are ending), but explaining why and what they need to do is good customer relations. On the plus side, not having ads and things working on their website is better than what it was.

I'm still confused just how "Plus100 Premium" service at $100/yr vs "Plus500" service at $400/yr differ. Depending on which link you hit, it shows Premium as coming with or w/o 3rd party hosting???

I switched over to postimg.org only to have all links on that site break as well. I guess they are now switching everything to postimg.cc but I'll have to go back to all my posted images again and put in the new link. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes I have tried IMGUR. I don't like it, it is more of a social media website than a good platform for posting images. They assume that your uploaded images are for sharing with only the Imgur victims. With Photobucket, I upload an image at whatever size I have it or downsize it to speed the upload and select the IMG address for that image and I can post an image quite easily. Photobucket automatically sizes the image for use on the selected website (I suspect there is a standard sizing). I don't know how they do it, and frankly don't care to know, it just works ... aka ... a good tool. With Imgur I have to spend a lot of time getting an image SIZED (pixel width and height, plus MB size) to work on say Modelwarships so I can post an image from Imgur using their IMG address (if you can even find the selection). AKA Imgur is something I have to do extra work with to get what I what to accomplish ... bad tool. Imgur aggravated me by pestering me with E-Mail messages for months on silly stuff they offered. It has stopped after my E-mail began ID'ing them as SPAM. :smallsmile:

Hi all.

There is a plugin available on several browsers, Chrome for sure, which actually allows PB images to show through on the computer where that browser is installed. So if you are looking at an older thread it's worth a try as you may be able to see the pics that way.

For those who have PB accounts and want to download all the content so they can bugger off elsewhere.. PB themselves have made that very hard/impossible HOWEVER there is a paid plugin on Chrome (I think it's all of about $2) which allows you to download ALL of your albums/photos content without any laborious manual intervention. We all know we should have backups, but I couldn't find some so for me that was $2 well spent.

As an ongoing solution I have a hosted piwigo gallery. It's great but requires some tech sense to get up and running, so not for everyone but may suit some really well.

I have a blog post for those interested. Please note that I have made sure this isn't a clickable link, as I don't think as a new member that'd be too cool, and I'm unsure of the rules around here on that. :)

Anyway if you cut and paste this into your browser bar it has more info on how I went about my solution. :thumbs_up_1:

I hope that's of help to someone.

Cheers all
