Facebook is great for a lot of things. You can post pictures as much as you want which is great and everything imaginable is on there but don't try to find that post you found interesting ever again because it will be buried in a thousand other posts. A forum like this is very easy to navigate. Searching posts, adding to a post ect is very easy . If the picture storage thing could be improved upon this place would be perfect! I'd much rather have this place like it was a few years ago with lots of members posting builds and useful tutorials. Facebook is great for showing what you ate for dinner...

Maybe the Photobucket-thing is good for the forum? Now it's time to have build threads again

Problem is , I posted those pictures as I was building these machines, when I came to a stop is when I decided to spend another 45min to an hour resizing and uploading pictures. That in it self was a chore , I don't even know where to start . I don't even know how many pictures I've posted in here of the years I've joined. So sad, I wish this was simple and easy to fix, people have nothing to look at anymore.....

You need to use Google Chrome on a computer or mac not working on i-pad and such.

For the gents having trouble posting pictures on here I put this little tutorial together using the free easy to use service www.postimages.org

Select the Choose Images button



Choose which picture you want to upload by clicking on it and then press the button Done




Click the button with the red arrow next to it. It will automatically copy the link when you click it



Then you type in [img] before the link



Paste the link you just copied directly after the [img]




Type [/img] after the link you just pasted. And thatís it your done! You can always preview your message before posting to see if your image shows up properly

Thanks Northern Farmer for taking the time explaining all what it would take and I'm in agreement with Mikem with all the PC work. I can copy and paste an address and upload images but that's it.

FB makes it easier OR maybe a group photo sharing website that can be easier than the once user friendly Photo Bucket? Can we use FB images here from the page the group has?

The lack of newer images and the ease of having them here certainly has reduced traffic and cut the participation down. How much does an upgrade for the website cost? Would a member yearly tuition go over with everyone due to the price?

I haven't read the whole thread so if it's been discussed, my bad.

I honestly don’t see a difference if members were posting pictures before with Photobucket on here why it would be any more complicated to use another image hosting service. It boils down to the same thing.

Even with photobucket it was a pain and I did not enjoy it at all . Mario talked me through it so that helped , but to redo it all, not happening . Then Trent and Dwayne had fb sites and it was so easy to post thatís why I went there . And whoís to say all these other photo hosting sites arenít going to do the same as PB did . Thanks Panther F I thought I was the only one who hated this method .

Im just getting back to forums after years away and its a bit sad to see how dead they are now. I too lost all my pictures in build threads due to photobucket and have since started fresh using imgur.com

Sure it's a bit more work to post builds on forums but at least they are easier to follow and search. Like others said about FB, stuff just gets buried so quick. Plus everyone just starts new FB groups and now you have to join like 20 groups all for the same subject matter.

It would be nice to see people return to forums.

I used to come on here many times per day to see what was new. Now I might look at it every couple of days or once a week. I don't post build progress pictures here anymore because it's a pain in the a$$ and I know many feel the same. I've been paying to have a photobucket account for the last few years just to keep pictures here on this site but now my account is going to close like others already have. I'm not going to take the time to start up an account at another hosting site, upload, then repost all of my pictures only to find out in a year that they pull the same $hit as photobucket when this is the only place that doesn't host photos. I happily pay a small fee as do all of the other vendors on here to help support running the place. I would happily pay a bit more or even pay a membership fee to upgrade this site but I think it is already too late. I hate Facebook but they make photo sharing and viewing a breeze. Uploading photo's to the Heavy Equipment Forum is also very easy and they host them for free. You can even embed videos on there. I understand that the membership of these other sites are much greater and that they run adds to help pay for that. Is that not possible in this situation? Clearly we have way less members than the Heavy Equipment Forum but that also means that a lot less photos and videos would have to be hosted. Would this not also reduce the cost of it? I don't know anything about running a website but I do know that this place is on the ropes because of the photo deal and it makes me sad.
