For the admin, please do not take this as a malicious act. I see that all of my threads are now pretty much advertisements for a certain vile ex-useful site. As sorry as I am to say this , I must ask admin to delete ALL of my threads here. I almost said work, but , that would not be so.
Krow113 has numerous kits on the go and the response here , especially to the Hillclimber thread , has been marvellous. I will be returning as soon as I can sort out the photo posting work. I won't have time for a while to do that.
Thank you ,Steve

Steve: we cannot do that as it would effect every member who has posted in your threads.

Is this about Photobucket?

Thanks,

@Jim - yes.

Steve - Jim has recently allowed users to edit older posts so they can update their images based on the change of policy by Photobucket. So you should be able to go back and update the images.

Thanks but I wont be doing that. Way too many pics and no time for it. I thought it would be doing the forum a favour, getting rid of useless threads. I don't think anyone will miss it, since there are no pics, - no pics = no thread.
Also all of these threads are ads for pb now with their name all over them.
Is PB giving anything to KM for this free advertising that has been forced onto members and threads?!

p.s. There are fewer than 10 members on the whole Hillclimber thread. the thread is from 2009 - 2017 , there is NO WAY I will be going back and changing at least 100 photo's.
Let it go...
p.p.s. I have gone onto a number of my threads that are undeniably useless and asked for deletion. If you wish to do so I promise not to start crying or any other reaction! Thank you.

When the publisher makes a decision I will follow his instructions on this matter.

Hi Steve

I sympathise with your frustration in the current situation but, turning things around, far from working as "adverts", the thumbnails you're objecting to could actually backfire and deter people from using that photo-hosting site.

All the best

yaya merlin, I am unable to see any worth in the threads at all , so if the admins wanna dump them its ok by me.
I also thought that when I do come back on here , my new threads may be ignored , the thinking being they are like these , useless.

Hi Steve,

I think we all feel your pain - the recent PhotoBlunder change has hit everyone's threads. But before you ask the publisher to pull the plug, you might want to take a look at TacFireGuru's Ratte scratchbuild thread for an option on how to revive those crappy clock-faces. He found another image host, and then posted a few "re-cap" messages with a selection of the images to catch readers up with the story so far. It's really brought life back to his build...

BTW there's lots of folks singing the praises of Imagur at the moment.

Thanks for that.
I don't have time for effing around like that.
I was thinking that in 6 months or so things will have settled down.
I also think that pb has set a 'standard' now ( if the bar can go lower, let me know) , I think alla the other hosting sites are gonna follow suit.
Imagine chasing your photos all over the internet for a year or so.

No, thanks. I'll wait and come back to a clean slate if admin agrees.
