    Photobucket Block and Solution

    Photobucket Block and Solution

    So by now, you have all noticed the image block placed on Photobucket hosted images...which to put it bluntly makes your hard work in posting your PLOGs feel a bit of a waste. Fear not there is a way to get your images back up.

    Saving/recovering your own pictures is quite straightforward (and fairly quick rather than trying to save each one individually). Log-in to your Photobucket Account and visit each Folder (including your main page which is a folder on it's own) and on the right hand side of your page there is this list:



    Download your whole folder and then you have your image on your hard drive again and either move the images to another hosting site or use the upload function in the forum. You can do that my "Edit Post" at the bottom of each post and then select "Go Advanced" and from the menu above your post select the "Insert Image" icon (that is the little picture with the tree on it) and upload your image.

    Special Thanks to member Karak Norn Clansman who provided this information and the image.

    Sincerely,

    Captain Brown

    Thanks Captain Brown. I'd like to add that once anyone is done salvaging his or her own images, please consider salvaging images from one or more inactive logs of particular quality and/or creativity on display. After all, inactive members can't save their own treasures, but some of them are very much in our interest to preserve nonetheless. The Hall of Heroes would be a good place to start.

    If direct download from another's Photobucket albums is unavailable, consider copy-pasting into MS Paint/saving pictures to your computer, then post the salvaged pictures into the inactive member's thread or hear with staff members if a re-upload could be arranged. (Individual post-restoration is tedious, and a big photodump in first or last post without textual/log context is much better than nothing preserved at all.) Should anyone salvage the work of others in this subforum, please report here to avoid double-work. To anyone willing to help out with salvaging something from others: Some confusion and threadomancy should be expected, but we'd rather have that than a complete loss of Warseer's inherited treasures.

    Thanks for the heads up, appreciated.
    Nonetheless I cannot download my whole photobucket "bucket": it runs into a reproducable error.
    Tried it with Firefox and Internet Explorer.
    Any ideas?

    Would Love to get my old log Up again hence the effort.

    Regards,
    Noc

    Nocturn,

    I had a similar experience. For some reason some of my folders downloaded and others would not, no mater what I tried. Since I had some backup's I started loading those to Imgur and when I found some images I did not have I went to Photobucket and manually moved them across. I just went to my non-downloadable folders, visiting each image and did a Save As to a folder I set up on my HD. I had shared and unlocked all the albums before I did that (I also tried downloading after unlocking and that did not work either). It happened on my Necromundian Guard (which had about 1000 images) and my Orks (which had 166), other folders downloaded without issue.

    Sincerely,

    Captain Brown

    While browsing the other day I came across this:

    http://www.network54.com/Forum/14967...This+Thread%29

    It's a link to a Chrome and Firefox add-in that somehow completely bypasses Photobuckets ransomware attempts. Tested it with an older thread or two that used PB and it seems to work - albeit that I have no idea how long until PB catch on and close off whatever exploit it uses.

    Thanks ModernKiwi for finding that option. Members who are using personal devices can make that, but if you are using a work device you might want to hold off.

    Cheers,

    Now that WarSeer has the Gallery working and you can start your own folders to store images again. This should also help protect your images instead of using third party hosts. You can even upload your images right from Photobucket over to WarSeer.

    Cheers,
