Technical Problems with Images on OLD Forum & Photobucket

Postby Rescue Remedies_2 » Fri Oct 20, 2017 11:35 am

We are currently experiencing two separate technical problems with images on our forum:

Photobucket Images:
In June 2017, Photobucket decided to lock all its users' images and charge $400 (£302) per year for its photo hosting service. As a result of this change, all Photobucket links are now broken on our forum unless users have paid this large Photobucket fee. If you have linked to Photobucket in the past on our forum, and you are not planning on paying the new fee, PLEASE DELETE YOUR PHOTOBUCKET LINKS from all your posts. We will leave links in place for the time being, but at the beginning of 2018, RR Moderators will delete them when we see them, as they take up too much space and are unsightly on our dogs' threads. If you are unable to delete links and wish to have them deleted on a thread, beginning in January, please contact an Admin or Moderator and we will delete the links for you.
For more information on what happened to Photobucket users, please see this link:

THE BELOW ISSUE NOW APPEARS TO BE RESOLVED.
If you come across any pre June 2014 images that have not been restored, please let the Admins or Moderators know.

Old Forum Images:
Many members will remember that we moved to this new forum in June 2014. Since then, we have gradually migrated old threads and images from the old forum to our present forum on an ad hoc basis. Our old forum recently changed hosting ownership and during their migration, all our old (pre June 2014) gallery images were lost. As a result, all present links to our old forum image gallery are now broken. The old and new hosting owners of our old forum are working on this problem, and hope to resolve it. There is still a possibility that the old, pre June 2014 images will not be recovered, however. We apologise to our members for this sad (and we hope temporary) loss of their precious memories.


We thank all members for their patience whilst we sort out these difficulties.
