Old Sticky threads with no pictures



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm new here, so I'm looking through a lot of sticky threads to learn new things.

Why are there so many threads with obsolete, photobucket pics?

Either get the pictures back by contacting the one who posted the thread, or get rid of the thread entirely. They are just a waste of data space.

Our admins and moderators are volunteers Marv and we don't have summer interns. Unless you're volunteering for the job I don't think you're going to get much play on this one.

It's the Richard Heads at Photobucket who caused the mess.

This forum is run by Vertical Scope.... just a big Canadian owned company who really doesn't care about firearms in any positive way at least. The admins are doing it for free, otherwise it's largely on free fall.

Vent thy rage at the morons at PhotoBucket (and never use them)

Some of the posters have gone back on their threads and replaced the pictures.

Some of the pics came back on their own with an added PB watermark in regards to the Photobucket debacle, but it's been an ongoing problem even prior to that with folks letting paid accounts lapse or no longer owning a domain that they were hosting from. We've gone through picture threads in the past and pruned the posts that had failing links, but unfortunately it seems to be a never ending battle.

Thanks to all who have done so!

Tit for Tat

There are workarounds for different browsers also. This is the one for Chrome https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...bifiaedg?hl=en

But, and there's always a but...more than a few guys deleted their Photobucket accounts in exasperation and that kills the pictures forever.

Life is complicated

Thanks for the explanation. I get it. Sometimes you have to be thankful for what you got.

If you use google chrome there is a download extension that will bring back the photobucket pictures as long as the person did not close their account.
