  • Posting OFF SITE photos to the VFF

    With the latest debacle going on with Photobucket and lots of pictures being zapped if you don't join, it's just a matter of time before other off site hosting companies do the same. To preserve the future content of this forum, I would appreciate it if everyone could load the pics directly to the site.
    I actually care about preserving the information here for the future. There is software being developed that won't allow off site hosting to the VFF. As soon as it is ready we will be implementing it. If anyone notices lost pics on a previous thread please bring it to my attention.
    Thanks for your cooperation and as always if you need any help with this just ask.

    I've posted some thumbnails, and some full size pictures here.
    Are they both saved the same way to this forum, no matter what happens?

      As long as your not using a URL from a hosting site that holds your pics and pasting it here your good.
      Thumbnails or full size makes no difference.
      Take them right off your computer, camera or device and they are imbedded to this site forever.

        Photobucket Breaks Image Links Across the Internet


        Want embedded Photobucket images to continue loading in forums or on your website? Be prepared to pay $399 per year.

        Matthew Humphries
        Embedding images on a website or in a forum post is a very common practice, with those images usually living on one of the many well-known image hosting websites. One such host is Photobucket, but a recent change to its subscription tiers means many millions of images across the Internet are no longer going to load outside of Photobucket's own site.



        The key feature of a Photobucket account we're talking about here is called "3rd Party Hosting." It allows you to embed images from Photobucket in another location on the Internet, e.g. in a forum post or on a website.

        As Norvic Philatelics discovered, Photobucket changed its terms and conditions and removed the 3rd Party Hosting feature from the lower subscription tiers. If you want to continue using that feature then a Photobucket Plus 500 subscription is required. It costs $39.99 per month or $399 per year.

        Not only is that very expensive, it means existing Photobucket accounts on lower subscriptions tiers will have any embedded images they've created in the past cease to work. Considering Photobucket has been around since 2003 and hosts over 10 billion images, that's potentially millions of embedded images across the Internet being broken thanks to a policy change. Here's just one example of how this change impacts a forum thread.

            Why this new forum?
            by glentre
            Didn't know this forum existed and found it quite by accident so I joined to see what it's all about. I've been a member on the barn for almost four years with some 325 posts so I'm not a newbee. My handle there is Lona.

            ​​​​​​Seems like a shame to have two forums on the same subject. While I've read many very generalized comments on why this new site was formed, it seems...

            Site Goodies
            by DaWizard
            Hey Mitch, how do I get a "reputation"?

            I see it listed on the "Members List" but don't see anything in and around the posting area.

            I think I want a Reputation.

            While I am on the subject of site goodies, what is the "Tag" and what will it do, or should I just experiment?
