As many of our site members have been reporting problems with their Photobucket hosted images in the forums, we have opted to remove the time limit on editing posts for the time being. This should allow folks to edit any photos and update to other photo hosting if they choose so their photos will once again appear in 3rd party forums.
For those not aware apparently Photobucket has reversed a long standing policy of allowing images to come up on third party sites (like forums) and now only paid accounts have this option (still with limited amounts of bandwidth, etc.). This has left a lot of forum topics across the Internet devoid of the photos they normally would be showing. Of course even in the past some users would exceed their bandwidth for the month and photos were missing, etc.

KitMaker will be looking at some options to fix this issue longer term. Up to and including the ability for users to upload photos to forum topics and have those photos be part of the permanent record (meaning not taken off any photo storage limit on your account). Clearly sites like Facebook, where there are no known limits to photo uploads, are changing this dynamic and driving a lot of users to Facebook to post their work. Sadly this cuts both ways as Facebook is not an long term online resource for knowledge in the way that forums can be. It is not searchable in any meaningful way and each account/page limited to the range of people who are associated or follow that account.

Perhaps this is an option. LINK If your notposting hunderds of pictures it will do fine and if you have more then one email account you can create another album when you reach your limit. Pictures on MyAlbum can be used on forums

I had been thinking that all of us chipping in to buy a big ol, server, ie user subscriptions, would be a great feature of this web site.

There was a problem with some edits. Should be fixed now though. My apologies but the forum code is highly complex so this bug didn't pop up on the account I was using for testing.

Hello Jim, sorry for asking similar question in other thread, but I really curious about for how long the edit button will be available? Since I still busy with another business that still takes longer time (than I already predicted before! ) after spending my weekend with my family and after doing so, I may be available to fix all of my posted thread. I just worried if I return to my PC, the button is already disappear. So many thanks Jim!

I became a subscriber shortly after finding this site so that I could avoid having my threads pics dissapear and have over 1600 pics stored here once you figure out how to post them it's easy. Cheers Rob.
