Janet,
Will we be able to go back through and edit post in order to fix the dead images/links?

Links to other image hosting will still be a viable option as well as links to images hosted here at skoolie in the albums section. When the dust settles on this we will look at edits on existing images; but please be a little patient as this is new territory for us.

In the meantime; limits on image attachment sizes for forum posts are being raised.

Thank you for being a wonderful Admin, Janet!

I started just uploading straight from my iPhone through TapaTalk... it's like uploading to facebook, easy.

I see all my pictures are now showing in my old posts but I received an email from photobucket telling me to upgrade so I assume the links will be cut again at some point.

To get ready for that I downloaded all my forum pics and marked them with the post number and position in the post so I can add them back if editing is allowed later on.

Photobucket sucks.

I don't *think* I have any Photobucket links on this forum. Most of my photos (here, at least) should be hosted on other platforms.

I feel the pain, heck the whole internet has been burned by PB, this does go to show that all it takes is 1 flick of a switch and the whole shebang is gone *poof*

well its the progression of storage.. many years ago forums told you *NOT* to place images on their servers and to use whatever 3rd party hosting you wanted.. back when cable internet first came along alot of people hosted picso n their own servers.. and of course those links broke.. so then came along the likes of photobucket, imgur, and many others..

now storage is cheap.. virtual hosting can get you many gigs for not mich $$ per month.. or if you maintain your own forum servers in a colo somewhere you can drop a couple terrabytes of RAID in for not much $$ these days..

now that PB renigged back on the nazi-ism for a bit, someone needs to go and write a program that will crawl every thread and pull the images down and host them here..

i could probably build the program if I had direct access to the Database back-end that this BB runs on...

It could be worse...
At this time, they're only limiting 3rd party linking(the pics are still on their servers). But, if they really wanted to stir up a hornet's nest... They could have just denied their users all access to their pictures! Or closed shop and said tough boobies! Then turned around the next day and use all their equipment for paid subscribers.

Fore those of you too young to have seen it first time around...

Here's my take on PhotoSuckit...
