PostSubject: Photobucket - FYI for viewers   Sat Jul 08, 2017 1:43 pm

Today when I logged on I saw that the saber icons above avatar pics were all messed up due to photobucket doing some stuff on their end.  

I informed John and he is working it out.  If you guys see issues like this in the future please let us know.  Not sure how long it has been that way and for those sabers it I more or less irrelevant but if pics go missing or something from guides or threads it can be detrimental.

John has worked on the issue some but I saw some are still the same way, so please bear with us as we get this issue fixed. Thanks.

Here is what I am talking about:



Also thanks John for helping with this issue. I am about as tech savvy as a turtle so it good to have others who can fix these things for us. lol! lol!

Leave photo bucket for hosting pics. Wildly unreliable

Most everything is hosted elsewhere. The very early stuff from the original owner is setup this way.

On a different subject, didn't you have an avatar photo? Where'd it go?

No I don't think I ever put an avatar photo up.

Hey Bryan,

Thanks for bringing this up...

I noticed mine was all messed up a while ago, but I thought it was on my end due to some prior issues with my browser, otherwise I would have let you guys know... What made it hard to notice the problem too was that it seemed like only my user profile had the messed up lightsaber. It also had a link to a photobucket sign in page which I thought was bizarre...

Thanks man!

Truthfully it may have been messed up before I noticed it for an unknown amount of time. I try to hit every new post to read them for content as well as making sure things are smooth around the forum and then sometimes behind the scenes so when it comes to things like the post counts and avatar pics I really skim, so it can be easily missed.

AFAIK Photobucket changed their terms of use. You know need to buy a subscription I believe to be able to embed pictures.

As many know, recently Photobucket asked their users to pay a fee to continue using their service to host images on places like forums.

This has resulted in some TIG images being forcibly removed. We're working on replacing these. Please feel free to update any of your missing photos and take advantage of our Servimg or Galleries options which are completely FREE to use.
