Third Party?
« on: July 25, 2017, 09:26:54 AM »
Will some one please help me.  Where the pic of my boat used to be, there is now a "funny" symbol the says "Please update your account..." and shows a "100% gas gage" type thing.  How do I get rid of that and get my chosen picture back?

Gerry, was your pic hosted on Photobucket ? If so they no longer allow 3rd party hosting...without an amount of cash well beyond what it is worth for the service...IMHO

Gerry right below your post/thread is another that explains and discusses the Photobucket policy change.  Everyone who uses Photobucket and has not agreed to the extortion is in the same boat.

Why are there still pics for most shown.  What is the next step for replacing Phopobucket?

Oh....... I thought you were talking about something else.

I thought I'd missed two parties and didn't want to miss the third one.

I think I understand now. I'm disappointed but I understand.

You can upload your own (saved on your computer) picture for your profile picture as long as it is resized to meet the forum requirements.  With regard to pictures in posts, there are other third party hosting sites and I think there is a way to post using your own uploads as long as sized properly, but I'm not sure how to do that.

Hi Brackish, I refused all along to use photobucket because they require me to sign in to their site and become a member/user. I didn't like the site because it is so full of junk/advertising.
I like the idea of posting my own pics from my PC as you suggested is maybe possible. I hope some one defines how to do that. It's not going to be me cause I am really ignorant about all this computor stuff. In fact I have a hard time spelling computer.
