I`m not sure its worth fighting this antiquated system. A lot of bank time can be spent trying to keep up with the
boneheads.

Parker +d, ordinarily--and it is very rare since fly fishing people are respectful people--I just delete rude, thoughtless, ignorant, disrespectful comments. Often these are made by digital babies with the attention span of a 4-year-old and the persistence of a 1-year-old filling his diaper, which is about what the digidiots produce.

I suppose Photobucket, since it doesn't flash on you every time you check Facebook or your device of the week, is antiquated.

This is not a social media site. You can get a lot of trivial, moronic ideas and pictures from those, and there are plenty of them, so we are not. Go to one of those if you want to sprawl carelessly taken, poor-quality, unedited photos everywhere. Tell everyone to "like" them.

We are thoughtful, knowledgable people who respect and learn from tradition. That makes us antiquated.

We are also not an advertiser-supported commercial site trying to sell new stuff to anybody who will click-to-buy, giving up half their personal identity for data-miners in the process. That makes us antiquated.

So we do not have a paid staff--and you darn well did not pay a membership fee to support one--to implement every tech-craze. That makes us antiquated.

If I were part of a paid staff, I would not jump on every tech craze anyhow. Like most antiquated people, I am too lazy and too set in my ways. I prefer to spend my time fishing. Also, I can read, and I don't allow someone else to do it for me and reduce information to acronyms LOL. That makes me antiquated.

If something isn't broke, we don't fix it. That could be why a few of us still get to do a lot fishing with fiberglass fly rods. That makes us antiquated.

The photo posting process doesn't need fixing.

Any bonehead can do it, but he would have to know how to use his own device.

Even an antiquated guy like me can open an account, load a pic, and post it in maybe two or three minutes. After that, it's 10 seconds apiece. You could try to learn how and then you could do it in your sleep. I do it half asleep quite frequently because I have been around long enough to know better than to spend all my waking hours dealing with technology.

I also routinely help new members who run into a glitch posting pictures. Usually I just straighten out the attempt, which displays the photo. I send a PM to whoever asked about it, and after they see the revisions in the edit mode, they let me know they are all set, saying thanks in the process.

This I have to be awake to do; it might take 7.3 minutes added up from a few focused work sessions. I know that would be a strain for some, but a joy around here is that a lot of people can still manage it. Antiquated people only have a few lucid hours in the day, but if we are lucky, we can still remember how to work smarter, not harder.

I am glad to help because I enjoy the pictures members post and other members do, too.

Perhaps you have found some pictures here that suit the new-age eye, and there are thousands to view. I bet you even liked a few. Imagine, they were all posted in the antiquated ways described above.

Perhaps you have a photo you want to contribute, which would be much more welcome than complaining about how your hosts at FFR should receive it before it is even given.

"Seek first to understand, and then to be understood." We welcome posts with pictures, from new members or old. Like anything new worth doing, it takes a little getting used to. Then it becomes a habit.

The prevalence of smart phones makes downloading tapatalk app an easy method to manage multiple forums like this one plus post pictures from the cell phone photo album.

If photo from a camera then email to smart phone.

Welcome to the forum. A lot of great wisdom and knowledge on this forum.

Respectfully,
ARR

I'm a tech moron who just recently learned how to text. However, even such as I can, sometimes with great difficulty, and do post pictures from Flickr to the FFF. Oh, and BTW I do have 3 college degrees, but they are antiquated. Don't you just love "spellcheck"?

Seeing Past Photobucket Hotlink Block

Unless the OP deleted their photobucket account, every old photobucket image is still linked on this website (and every other place on the internet). Photobucket has chosen to show you a block image instead of the original image.

There are Free Add-Ons available for both Chrome and Firefox, which will let you choose to see the original photo instead of the "ransom block" image, both on this bulletin board and every other internet website.

For Chrome - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-hotlink-fix/kegnjbncdcliihbemealioapbifiaedg?hl=en

for Firefox - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... ket-fixer/

After installing my add-on, I called up an old thread thread, and I can see every photo
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=47227
And of course, I can also see everyone else's old photobucket images in context on every thread and every website.

Uploading the patch, you're not doing photobucket any favors, giving them any money, agreeing with them - all you're doing is restoring your old knowledge base to where it was before the photobucket ransom

If you want to remove the add on later, go to Add-ons and remove or disable it, or with Chrome, just right-click on your toolbar.

I hate being the Forum Idiot - but I can no longer post photos. I have searched and read all the posts about Photobucket and their changes. I have a photobucket account I can go to by itself but when I try to access it through the Forum the photobucket box is blank with a little pic and it says the connection was reset??? I have the photobucket fix at the top of the page (using Chrome) but not sure that is connected to my problem. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Doug

I have been using Picture Trail since Photobucket went off the rails. Is there any reason why I cannot continue to use PictureTrail?

If your images are a reasonable size, you never move or delete them, and you maintain a local copy of them, there should be no problem.

PictureTrail has disappeared in the past... a few times... and this is what the fear is. But, if you keep well-filed originals, we can always replace these when PictureTrail falls by the wayside.



My research so far shows that the reason approximately 50% of the images are missing on this forum is because the user has moved them, deleted them, or deleted their account.
