Editing Threads To Eliminate Links To Photobucket?
« on: June 24, 2019, 09:08:47 AM »
I've been getting regular emails from Photobucket claiming that my photos and linking exceed the free limit and demanding that I subscribe to a paid level of membership.

Not liking their tone, I logged on to Photobucket and deleted all my photos.  Even then, I still regularly receive such emails from them!  I haven't yet attempted to edit my posts on Mad Modders so maybe it is the links to which they are still objecting?  Another thought was that maybe these emails aren't from Photobucket at all but from a scammer?  I'll look at the source address on the next one.

I don't like my posts having non-working links - is it still possible to edit those posts to replace the links with embedded photos?  I remember that Steve edited all his.  I do still have all the photos, resized and with captions on my computer.  It would be a slow job, though!!!  I'd be happy to make a donation to the Tip Jar towards the extra server space.   
Best regards,

Pete W.

I put Photobucket on my spam list months ago so their emails go down the drain where they belong  :clap:

Sadly, I see photophuket has now defocused my old images, as well as the intrusive banner they put on some time back.   I guess itís only a matter of time till they expire completely.

Just get doing and make swarf, you can decide what its going to be later.   :thumbup:
