Due to the latest photo bucket crazy fee implementation we would really appreciate your views on this topic... viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1841
Martin & PaulEDIT,
Unfortunately we've had no option but to implement the banning of third party inbound links from photo storage websites due to the mess left behind with spoiled/missing images.
As most of you will know, photo bucket muppets got a little greedy and decided to charge account holders to allow outbound links from their site to a community/forum/facebook etc etc...
By uploading your images directly to this forum, they are backed up daily and should never get lost/deleted. This gives all members a better experience and helps keep the forum productive and alive.
We have no issues regarding storage limits anymore, we increased it some time ago as the forum got a little busier, bandwidth and storage are no longer a problem.
You may or may not have noticed the F&Q (frequently asked questions) button on the menu bar, looking at that page it does explain linking is an option... Re-writing that instruction is totally out of our control unfortunately as that help page is stored on the forum software suppliers website and linked to here.
Should you require any assistance on uploading images, please refer to the "How To" guide on the main index page. There you will get advice on videos, images, subscriptions etc..
YouTube. We have no issues with you linking/embedding video's via youtube, The video content is considerably less than the image count, so should a situation arise with video linking we can probably fix that easily.
Youtube make a great amount of revenue from account holders input, the likelihood of them charging for outbound links (In our opinion) is pretty much zero.
Thanks for your support and input on this guys,
Martin & Paul
