Yes, the current choices are limited.  But not only for this forum, - for all forums on the www..

1. Use our uploading function, its the best way to secure your pics on our server, but its limited ito flexibility wrt reports as explained above.

2. Take ownership of your own cloud based digital content and make sure you use a reputable hosting partner.

In the meantime, we will look for alternatives.  Feel free to investigate and make suggestions.
Whataboutism . When Cold War criticisms were leveled at the Soviet Union, the response would be "What about..." followed by the naming of an event in the Western world. It represents a case of tu quoque (appeal to hypocrisy), a logical fallacy that attempts to discredit the opponent's position by asserting the opponent's failure to act consistently in accordance with that position, without directly refuting or disproving the opponent's initial argument

Was PB not a reputable hosting partner?  Die moere, hulle het ons 'n lekker miellie gerol.

Ek is ook klaar met rr's.  Om 300 / 400 fotos te download op die huidige trant is 'n fookup.   :deal:

From Imgur website terms.

"Stuff not to do
If someone else might own the copyright to it, don't upload it. Don't upload gore, "hate speech" (i.e. demeaning race, gender, age, religious or sexual orientation, etc.), or material that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, or that encourages violence or crime. Don't upload illegal content such as child porn or nonconsensual ("revenge") porn. Don't hotlink to adult content or to file-sharing, gambling, torrent, warez, or Imgur rip-off sites. Don't impersonate someone else. Also, don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network. If you do and we will be the judge or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on Imgur.com. We mean it."

So, can we or can't we use this site?
Old, grey, crafty...

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.

Dropbox is a viable alternative it seems.

Post pics to be publically viewable.

They are also more of a market player. You used to get 3GB for starters and 500 gb free for each successful referral you do up to 15 GB

----------

Google drive give you 15 GB free

--------

Microsoft Onedrive might work have not tried it.

--------

Facebook public pictures might also work - have not tried it.

It appears that the RR's are showing the pics again. Still getting the blackmail image on the top right of WD home screen.

Perhaps they are rethinking their plan?

My old ride Reports were all done on Photobucket and none have been affected.

Don't know why.

Photobucket new rules kills free third party hosting.......
« Reply #77 on: July 26, 2017, 10:07:57 am »
Incase no one noticed recently photobucket just changed their free third party hosting of all our pictures unless you pay $399.00 per year for a plus 500 package

so there goes all the pictures from all our old posts and I'm guessing all others that used the early free photobucket
