What you put in, you'll get back ten fold
Members and searchers please be aware that some of our 'how to' guides do not currently show the intended help photos. This is because photobucket wants to charge a monthly amount for us to view our own pics. The photos are currently being replaced. If you need one of our guides and it is missing pics please let one of the Admin team know and we will make that one a priority for you.

How to guide Pictures,,,RE Photobucket ransom rip off

Postby Mazda Mender » Thu Jul 06, 2017 10:35 pm

Some may have noticed that some of the guides that we have built are now missing the pictures, this is because of a third part host,,,Photobucket which are holding people at ransom That have used them and stored pictures to be used and shared on the internet and now they want between $400 to $500 per year to make them viz able on the net, now it is not just us , everyone that as used these con merchants are effected by this rip off, lucky for everyone the pics are still easy to get to, so i have personally spent 3 early mornings downloading all the pics into a folder 1.500 to be saved so i can remove their links and remove them one at a time with our drag and drop system, so they are locked in to the site and no where else, as you can guess this is going to take some time on my jack jones so please bare with me as i go throw them trying to guess at what is missing as some were built a while back, if you spot pics missing of mine , please let me know as the site is centred around pics in a big way to help, so if anyone else was using Photofudgedya you better check your pics that you have shared on line.
As i say it is a major head ache and more work that i really do not need at the minute so bare with me please.
In the mean time if there is a guide that you need but does not have any pics let me know and i will make that a priority for you to get sorted,sorry about this as it is out of our control , but we will get it right asap.

AGREE - this is a total RIP OFF, I hope folks move away from Photobucket asap rendering their site devoid of traffic and therefore limited income from advertisers. In short can't wait for them to go bust!

I will update my links this weekend.

Thanks MM for all your efforts :obscene-drinkingcheers:

Let me see if we can waver the edit rule for you John so you can sort it out bud, i'm personally not looking forward to resorting it all to be honest.
