    Learn from this guys, don't just move to some other on line storage facility, or facebook etc.

    Create your own website, store COPIES of the pictures on there and link to them.
    I don't even trust the hosting providers and have a full copy of my website stored so I can move it where I want.

    Even if you change Hosting providers your links still work, so your not tied to any one company, I changed mine a few months back.

    Costs me 2.99/Month to run my site with Best Web Hosting and I get unlimited storage.

    You can run a blog or whatever on your own site and you get email addresses attached to it. Which are again, fixed to your site and you can keep if you change hosting companies. eg myname@myname.co.uk which is what I have, amongst others.

    I don't think uploading to AoS is a good idea, but I'm not sure what the storage capacity is with its hosting service.
    Don't want to grind it to a halt.

    I don't seem to be looking at this from the same perspective as many of you folks.

    Yes, I used Photobucket.
    Yes, my forum images are gone.

    But I've always regarded posts and threads as transitory things of the moment,
    A thread is active for a while - folks follow it, contribute, see what others post .... and then move on to the next thing.
    It's like a conversation - you say something and it is gone, with no permanent record left.

    Yes, it's a bit sad that the historical images are gone and the threads often fatally disrupted for viewing now.
    But they served their purpose at the time.

    I can see that AOS's technical databases being corrupted is a bad thing, a lot of people put a lot of work into compiling them as a resource for others to use.
    But the regular threads, well, they served their purpose at the time.

    On most, probably all, of these sites, if you read the small print, THEY own everything on their site.
    It's a cover all, so no one can take legal action if they loose something.

    In some ways what Photobucket is doing can be seen to be little different to criminal hackers with ransomware attacks. I too refuse to pay the $400 ransom Photobucket are charging.

    I have written many articles for The Knowledge, and as 'Fount Master' the responsibility to maintain this facility for the benefit of Members is mine. Many, if not most of the images are hosted by Photobucket. The original images taken by me are stored on the hard drive on my PC, but having been downloaded at different times over the last 10 years are in as many folders, along with holiday snaps etc. To re-install them in a 'safe haven' will be a long, tedious and protracted effort - not one which fills me with any enthusiasm.

    And as one Member has already stated, the action of Photobucket now makes me reluctant to post here with any regularity, if at all.


    Grant, as someone who is a real numpty when it comes to software matters, could you describe in words of one syllable how images stored on my PC can be directly posted here? Thanks.




    Method to upload photos to site...

    Click on your username at top. On next page down left hand side there is a section called albums. Click on more, then on create album. Give it a title and description, leave it public and save.
    Then click upload pictures, the add files. Add files which should show in a row below. Once you have the ones you want in that row, click done at bottom right. Then save changes button.

    Now when you click on that pic, you willl receive a bb code at bottom.. post that directly into your post( no brackets are needed at they have been added).
    Done...

    Anybody wishing to experiment with this or other image uploading can try it out by sending themselves PM's with photos added. That's what I do when I'm testing something.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    I have found them to be better than most at support, online support chat can solve minor problems, if you take out a support ticket they get back to you pretty quick. You can even ring them, which I tried before subscribing just to check. I've used 4 services and these are by far the best.

    Avoid Yorhost like the plague. Impossible to contact, they just ignore emails, even about billing and their telephone number does not exist.

    In that case I shall delete everything I have on PB once the images used in The Knowledge are secured. Photobucket won't remain viable for long if every user does the same.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    they still hav'nt removed any of mine. I didnt have many tbh but afaik they are all still up. I did some tests recently and all were there last I looked. But yes I will be deleting my account as much as I can there too. its bad form what they did. I think they are only interested now in business types using it. they are bound to know the average Joe is not going to stump up 400 a year.

    All my photos on Photobucket are in folders which are "Private" yet they have always been visible on AOS and still are.

    Is it just albums which are set up as "Public" on Photobucket that are been held to ransom?
