Re: PhotoBucket Update


Thanks Rick.

Quick question. What is the cost for that site? Photobucket pretty much killed the BOTB last night. I need to reach out to the old Admin (if he'll even respond to me) and see if he can burn all of the BOTB images on a flash drive or DC and mail them to me so I can start "rebuilding" (assuming it's even worth it at this point. I can't seem to get people to come back no matter what I do it seems. Trying to avoid just letting the BOTB, a nearly 20 year old forum, to just die)

Re:


efarrell4, I made an accidental discovery this past week and it may help you. One of my board members had lost her avatar and for some reason, it was one I had not saved. So, I right clicked on her notice from Photobucket and got her real "image address". I pasted it in my browser and her real image popped up. I then, saved it to my computer and was able to use it with a different image host so that she had her avatar back.

You could do that with all of the images on your board, that are not your own. I had other people try it with their own image and it didn't work. You can right click on images to get image addresses and you can get image addresses in your board's control panel. Just paste them in your browser and I bet the pictures pop up, then save them to your computer.

If it is one of your own images you are trying to pin down, I would suggest opening a second browser and pasting your image in there, that way it wouldn't know you are you.

Re: PhotoBucket Update


efarrell4: If the owner will give you the password you could get in and download all of the images that way. The original image will download, even if it doesn't show up.

Re: PhotoBucket Update


Should TinyPic be used? Will they too stop allowing 3rd party hosting?

Re: PhotoBucket Update


Good question, Jox. I wouldn't trust Tinypic, since they're owned by Photobucket.

Ed, I re-created your header background using this svg that's hosted by Runboard, which you're free to use.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

I also found your "New Topic" button on Wayback Machine, but couldn't find the reply button there.

I'm posting this button here as a data URI, which is too many characters to fit into your custom language set, but at least you can save it from here.

Re: PhotoBucket Update


Hi guys, and I'm still annoyed at Photobucket emoticon

Just out of curiosity (and some worry!), any idea why none of my photos are disappearing and I'm still able to upload new photos and link to them with no problem? I haven't agreed to their insane price or anything. Have I just lucked out or should I be worried for the bill to come in emoticon

Re: PhotoBucket Update


Anyone who wants to have gradient backgrounds on their Runboard is free to use this:

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

This will automatically scale to the correct height, whether it's a header background or a page background.

Just change ff0000 to a hex code for the top of the gradient, and 000000 to a hex code for the bottom of the gradient. Three-character hex codes work too, for those who know how to use them.

Brian, it sounds like they just haven't gotten around to disabling your account yet. If you haven't already switched everything over, you really should do that ASAP.

Re: PhotoBucket Update


Yeah, I haven't yet. But everything still works fine for me. Is it just gonna automatically charge me if I don't disable my account? emoticon Otherwise, I just don't don't understand why everything's still up and working for me emoticon

Re: PhotoBucket Update


Several of my boards were fine until a day or two ago, and now they have the hijacked image all over them.

I just need to figure out where to upload my images ... seriously thinking of going image free on my boards.

Re: PhotoBucket Update


No, Brian. They won't charge you. For one, I highly doubt they have any of your financial information. For two, you never agreed to pay for anything, which would make it illegal for them to collect anything from you even if they did have your financial information.

Jox, Imgur still seems safe. Also, there are other free and cheap options that people are checking into as we type.
