    Thanks! I didn't know that Photobucket owns Imgur. I definitely don't want to migrate over only to have to migrate again!

    Photobucket doesn't own imgur. They own tinypic.

    Yeah. I am going to go back and do that for some posts. The frustrating thing is that this is not the only Forum I am a member of. Links are broken all across the Internet. There is a custom pistol site that I am a member of. It doesn't get a lot of action, but it contains a ton of shots of custom pistols, which helps people decide how they might want to customize their own pistols. That knowledge base just disappeared. Same with a lot of the older posts here. I am glad we have an alternative method here, but I am crying about how Photobucket has ruined so much work done by hobbyists in a variety of communities.

    Had they priced it at, say, $10 a month. I would be on board. I am not a free loader, but $30 a month is just not reasonable for most users. I am at 2% storage capacity of my free account. But I am beating a dead horse here.

    I'm starting to upload pics directly to TDH. I completed the first "restoration" tonight: my ESB for Jesster.

    Superjedi's MF #6 ESB for Jesster

    It takes a while. . .

    Please don't do this. Thanks to the new process, we have the ability to pull images, even from Photobucket onto the site now. It was one of our biggest motivators. Over the course of the next week, we will be automatically moving your images for you.

    Art, really?! Actually that's amazing. I was resigned to spending uncounted hours re-imaging my threads, but this is great!

    Seriously? That's great news!

    We are working on it. IF people deleted their images (and many have done so in frustration at Photobucket's policy change) then we are screwed. If your images are still on PB, we are slowly but surely moving them. There are 10s of thousands that have to be migrated, so it is going to take some time, but we are actively working on it.

    I just saw some of yours move over last night. One of your posts was our testbed. :)

    This is great. I thought I was going to have to re-post them all.

    Outstanding. Nice to see you are thinking of the community and hearing its frustration over what PB did (y)
