Photobucket Picture hosting is now no longer free. This has caused a number of issues within the forums.

Da Management are on the case, we ask, please have patients while we test and adjust.

Some of you may have had signatures and/or avatar's hosted and back-linked/hot-linked to photobucket. These will have disappeared.
Equally, some of you may have written ride reports or kit and equipment reviews, again with back-links to pictures hosted with photobucket, which will also have disappeared.
This is our hosts blanket solution to a system wide issue with literally thousands of their customer/users (the likes of us), and not the administration here. As mentioned above, where there are gaps, we are working to restore and plug holes.
Please bear with us  Thumb

I gave up on Photobucket at the beginning of the year, when it just got too clogged up with ads to work at any sensible speed.  Fortunately I wasn't relying on it as the sole repository of any photos, and I still have all the originals.

I opened an account with postimage (postimg.org), which seems to work quickly and hassle-free.  I don't have many pix on there as yet, but this is one sample:

And a Mighty fine Sample at that sir [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] green smile


.. .. by the by, I was in the process of transferring all the stuff we had on photo*uckit when the proverbial hit the fan. I too had noticed quite some time back how slow and clogged that photo hosting platform had become.
As it happens I also have all the original stuff to, but on an older and much, much slower machine, making the process of updating a gruelling and toilsome task. But , hey ho , we're getting there

great

Btw, that's not a termite's nest in the background, it's a sort-of compost-cum-burnable rubbish heap. Some of which got bonfired this spring, but I think I'm fighting a losing battle!
