PostSubject: Photobucket and a few other things   Sat Jul 01, 2017 9:31 pm

Hey everyone and sorry I haven't been on Embarassed 

I have been pretty busy learning how to recolor and create walls/Murals...it's kept me so busy I don't even play the game anymore sad   You can find them at Bloom@CherryBlossomSims..I am very proud of what I have accomplished and all the help, support and patience from everyone over there has given me to even start all this..

Anyway..I didn't see a post on Photobucket boy they have really messed up..and no warning to anyone

Photobucket Here is the post on Bloom@CherryBlossomSims..you can read about it there..I have already gotten all my pictures off of PB..

Cinda..I have a problem as well..as you know it took me forever to learn how to put the links from Photobucket and the Affiliate Buttons together..now I started using Serving.com for my host with the Affiliate Buttons..

How in the world do I get the links together with Serving.com and buttons.. scratch

And last..I can't read any of the topics..I don't remember if I ever told you or not I am color blind and all I see is black, white, red, and grey..and the background and the print looks all the same and I just can't see them..

I love the July look sunny 

Have a great day everyone..

lilrose

OhMyLands, I've just noticed they have done this to me too! This is horrible! I'm with you that Servimg is the best way to go but what a pain it's gonna be to transfer everything! Thanks for letting me know!



Hilda, linking a pic/ is the same for all photo hosting sites so it's pretty easy to do:

Thank you so much Cinda..

As you read over at CBS a lot of members can't even right click on some of there pictures in PB..to save them..so a lot of pictures for years are gone for good..

Let your members know about that..before it is to late..make a post on it and sticky it..

I was using the Image Url and direct links so that wasn't working..I will try the other one..

Now I forgot to mention this is for the widgets that I have the Affiliate Buttons on..
I still don't have an Affiliate Button from you girl hug

I hope everyone gets this fixed..I can't believe they didn't even give a warning..

I'm gonna post over there see if I can give them a few ideas on how to save their pics.
Aye, carumba!

I sure will post a global about it; thank again hun for bringing this to my attention. thankyou

The direct link won't work for linking pics, you have to use the image url.

I know hun, I just get caught up in so many other things I never get one made. lafflol

Good grief, I hope everyone can, too. This is so devastating to the Simming Community!

Thank you Cinda and your very welcome..I wasn't sure if you had heard or not and I needed to come and say hi lol..

What really makes everyone mad is there was no warning, no email not even going to spam because I check my spam mail daily..

I know, it's really down low dirty, isn't it? So far I'm able to download all the pics posted here on SG but I lost all the pics in my personal account. Well, that c**p move won't get them any more subscribers than what they already have. I hope their stock hits rock bottom...

I agree with you 100%..

I hope it was ok..I gave the link to CBS for that Global Post you put up so they can read it..

There are so many people that have used it for their personal pictures..I bet a lot of them lost those as well..since they probably posted on Facebook..that just tears me up..and omgosh I would be devastated if that was me..

I am also taking everything off of tinypic..they are associated with PB..I'm not going to take a chance so am taking everything off of there as well..

Oh it's going to be a very long week lol..

Have a great day Cinda..and enjoy your 4th of July..tomorrow..

Oh I forgot to mention..I got my Affiliate Buttons moved thank you for the help with that sunny

Wow, for some reason everything is back to normal and that change of policy they implemented is gone. They must have had so many people delete their accounts with them already that they got rid of that 'pay for play' attitude. I don't even know how they thought they could ethically get away with it. Still, the fact that they pulled this stunt shows that they can't be trusted with our pictures...

Oh really..I didn't know that..but birdgurl's pictures are still gone..

I still wouldn't trust them and as soon as I move everything off of tinypic..I am deleting both accounts..they are not worth the time of day to spit on ..

I have made it my top priority for finding a 3rd party hosting site..now tilly has a list of several and I sent an email to Imgur and they do, do 3rd parting hosting..

I am waiting on a response back to them asking how I can share that email..it has a lot of information, links and pictures so it would be hard to copy and paste it..

I will let you all know when I can get that email to you..

UPDATE:

I will just be adding some links to CBS instead of me copy and pasting everything again..

Photobucket

Photobucket Alternatives

I hope these posts will help in deciding on where to go for 3rd party hosting sites..

Just seeing all of the post, but I don't seem to have a problem.  All of my pics are there - at this time.   I will pop back on to read more, but I need to get ready for my workout session with my daughter.  Thanks for the info ladies.

BB, I'm just going to use ServImg, Forumotion's own hosting site, as all the other hosting sites either don't allow third-party linking or say they have a right to change their policies and delete your account if they want to. Even though ServImg doesn't allow subfolders which I prefer, they are pretty reliable and they don't unlink your pics if you move them around between folders like PB does. Most Importantly, they are specifically a third-party hosting site for Forumotion forums. If you run out of space on ServImg, you can make extra accounts with a different email address like I have done - I have three different accounts.

Cinda how do you go about getting more than one Servimg.com account..how do you sign up for it..because I got mine though having my site..is that even allowed


Also, I found out that Servimg.com is unlimited to pictures but if you have folder your only allowed 32..with 25 pictures in each..I like to have folders..lol so I don't have to dig through all of the pictures trying to find something lol

I am also using Imgur..they assured me that they are a free 3rd Party site..so I am using them as well..

Yes, you do it through Forumotion by changing your email address on SG or your site. It must be a different email address than the one you currently have, by creating a new address through HotMail or another email service. Once you change the email address, simply log on ServImg and you will automatically have a new account apart from your other one. They will send you an email with the login password which you can change once you've logged in. You can change your email address back to your previous address on SG or your site (depending on which site you created it from - they are both Forumotion.) if you want to. There's nothing in their policy that states that you can't have multiple accounts, so that isn't an issue.

I may look into IMGur and see if I like it.

Ok thank you for this information..

I emailed Imgur..and we passed emails several times with them insuring that they have free 3rd party hosting..so that is what I am using for odds and ends that isn't related to my site..so may do another one for my Sims2 creations and all that..
