Just a quick note to say that nosing through our reference section Ive come across a few broken links to images in Photobucket. If we are going to use PB and post thread in the reference area please bear in mind if you delete an image or change its name, it renders the reference area/thread useless. Ordinary posts are not so bad but the ref area needs to be kept for the duration, bit like getting a reference book and the pages you want are found to be missing. Can we remember this please.

Very good point Mike. If posting something in the ref area, it may be best either uploading using the MFF system or maybe allocating a special folder in PB so the image isn't deleted accidentally.

Or get a pro account with PB. It cost $25 a year and I have unlimited space and albums.

I'm not using half of my free space yet!!!

I agree though, $25 is not expensive.

My 'Mamod only' album has in excess of 2,000 images. I cant exist online without PB.

Or if you're cheap like me, you just create another free account. :lol:

(you do need a new email address to do this though, but those are free too)

A very good point Nick :wink:
Just had a look at my PB account & i've only used 36% of it's capacity in 4 years, so there's plenty of room before i need another account.

Very importantly if we see a dead link to a pic, we could ask the poster (politely) via PM to try & restore them.

Most are probably unaware of any dead links & it's easy to mess things up when tidying our folders up.
