There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

I've registered with Dropshots but I get this message when I try to post a link here

 

"You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community."

Lenny - does your image location look similar to this ----https://storage04.dropshots.com/photos7000/photos/1417679/20171117/172213.jpg

 

Can you see any difference in the type of directory structure - and I presume you re using ordinary jpg files

That is BOV's test photo

Postimage still does it for me.

I am better organised too. I set up folders and name them before uploading to that particular one.

I saw Capricorn's link but as my it skills are near to non existent I didn't understand what it was about

I just went there ie followed the link and the site co-operated...I saved the new site as my image hosting site in bookmarks and got rid of the old one.

Ok, thanks munter. It seemed dubious and I wondered if the new site was some kind of bait for something dodgy. But have just seen that it is working and my images are there.

Good, the problem seemed to be one that Postimage had no control over....ie ..it was unintentional.

I guess for any old posts - you'd need to edit each image with the new location - e.g swap .org with .cc


They are only toys .... until you pull the trigger.

Looks like Photobucket has had a change of management and a change of heart.

 

Unless you did the Haka and removed your pix, your Photobucket images are back.

Looks like it's now $19.99 per annum to keep them there though. That works for me. I always thought the free service was too good to be true.

Yeah, same here, I refused to pay $400 a year just for photo hosting or forums (although I was able to use them for my personal website), but $20 is fair and reasonable, and I have subscribed at that rate.

 

Guess they must have lost a shedload of customers to other sites, and had to rejig their plans. And thank god all their annoying ads have gone!
