We need your help fixing the Photobucket fiasco...

Postby mikeschn » Sat Dec 23, 2017 6:40 am

We need your help fixing the Photobucket fiasco. Please use the gallery here on the forum to recover from the Photobucket fiasco.

I know there's a lot of broken threads with broken links to Photobucket pictures. Your options, besides doing nothing, are to 1) Pay $399 per year to Photobucket or 2) use the free gallery here.

If you don't know how the gallery works, read the help here: viewtopic.php?p=911290#p911290

If everyone chips in and helps, we could get a lot of the broken photo links fixed, making this forum a nice place to browse again.

If you know of anyone who is no longer with us, PM me and I'll try to fix those photos... all I need is a topic number and the user.

Thanks,

Mike...

There is a fix....If using PC and real browser...

Chrome:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... n?hl=en-US

Firefox:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... 4129981591

Opera:

https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/ ... 4130201305

Might be good time to recover your images from Photofail (Photobucket) and repost (link) them in gallery here...

Thanks Dale,

Unfortunately, that's a temporary fix. If Photobucket finds a workaround to the workaround, the photos will disappear again. Even worse, if Photobucket albums are not touched for a year, they get deleted. Last but not least, how many others will follow the example set by Photobucket?

Reposting your photos in the gallery here is definitely the best idea.

Found a few missing from my build threads - in the process of uploading to build images from photobucket to the gallery. BTW - a way to download an entire album from photobucket DOES NOT exist on their website - however there is a workaround with your mobile phone

The android version of photobucket allows you the option of downloading full albums to your phone. Then I download from my phone to Computer to upload to gallery. 8)
