Thanks to photobucket, my build thread photos are now just fuzzy pictures or gone completely. Orange did a similar thing to me 10 years ago! >:(

 Is it possible to:

1 Edit old threads
2 Directly insert photos without (again) being held to ransom by a third party hosting site
Where are others storing their pics for use in threads?




I have always directly inserted photos into my posts by selecting "Reply" (not quick reply) and using the "Attachments and other option" button bottom left in what I hope is the attached image.

I don't store photos on the web so can't do it any other way.

Grow old disgracefully


The ability to edit your posts was given a time limit many years ago because some people were editting posts to change what they had previously said, and then flaming others for misquoting them.

There are no shortcuts on the long, hard road to success. But if your dad's rich there could a limo service...

Just testing  (thanks DickW) ! Thinking of rebuilding the thread without the aid of photofukit.


Editing old quotes?

Wasn't that Winston Smith's job in 1984?
