I've been using the site recommended by GB at the start of this thread - https://imgbb.com. So far it works like a dream and is FAR easier and faster than photobucket!

See: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2&start=10#p55

I notice that bao-bao's pics have gone, but aussie's are still up and he used photobucket! Probably haven't got as far back in history yet for GB's post (!) or as far geographically as Oz yet in their deletions!

Since I wrote the post below, suddenly the pics have reappeared after an hour's absence!! Please take no notice - unless it happens again!

I can't believe this. I started using this upload site and found it very easy. Yet in one thread where the pics were fine at least up till yesterday evening, five pics have now disappeared!

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8578

They are still in the library. i have absolutely no idea why they should have suddenly disappeared from the thread! They were all my photos of Hong Kong! My concern is not so much about that thread, but I will be really pissed off if they start disappearing from other threads.

I notice the iron fist in GB's first post of the subject had also disappeared.

I have sent a message to the host site.

I have no idea why you didn't see your pictures. I just checked. Now all the pictures are right there - all of them. And so is my 'Iron Fist' pic.

They're there - in all of your re-posts too. None are missing.

Let me know if there is another absence.
