My pictures have gone, Thanks to photo bucket. Sorry.

We have always advised on here to use photo bucket to host pictures & link to them to cut down on storage costs etc.

However this last month photo bucket have decided to stop 3rd party hosting as a free service & to charge for it.

What this means is the thousands of pictures I have on photo bucket can not now be seen in any of my posts making the guides etc almost useless.

Some may still work where I have not used photo bucket.

Basically photo bucket want 399.99 dollars a year to restore the pictures, no chance of that so they have gone. I am Sorry.

Photobucket are not very popular at the minute.

Imagine all the forums the world over now suddenly pictureless

I've got my Lambda sensor wires/plugs left over after a bare shell build up and I don't know where to plug them in -  getting it sorted with pictures to hand would have been so much easier!

Nice one Photobucket  :2tu: :2tu: :2tu:

I might as well delete the photobucket account as it's now useless. 😡

it is indeed a royal pain in the rear with their sudden change of policy  :-

However, the pictures are still viewable if you click on the warning and view it on photobucket I believe  :-X

That appears to work depending on which brower you use.

Internet explorer will take you to the picture folder if you click on the warning.

Where as safari does nothing for me.
