    Breaking News.

    I propose that the good members of Ulthuan.net knock their pointy-eared lordly heads together and initiates an image salvage operation to save the very best Photobucket-hosted pictures from inactive members. The works of old masters are in danger of being lost forever, courtesy of Photobucket! See more here for Chaos Dwarf Online's unfolding initiative on the issue:

    Can't edit above post. Errors will have to stand as they are. Best regards.

    You normally do not want to do this process manually...

    Took a look tonight and found a flaw in their "3rd party" protection system, so got an automatic process running now that parse all of our posts and download images from photobucket. Will write some more code one of the first days, to go through the posts and add same images as attachments.

    I see you guys run a different forum system, so the code would need some changes to run on your site, but if you guys have any developer onboard running the site, I can share the code with you, just send me a PM.

    OK, redundant on Lustria, but just to mention it everywhere:

    Stopgap fix to Photobucket images under lockdown (my emboldening), from Warseer's Captain Brown:

    Those who have not yet replaced their own Photobucket pictures with identical pictures hosted elsewhere, may want to scour their army blogs and other hobby threads. However, adding ~original to the address lines will not make the linked images compatible with more advanced solutions!

    Note however that we cannot consider this a permanent solution, only a stopgap option. It is possible that Photobucket may come to block this fixture, transform itself beyond recognition or go down altogether as a site.
