Hi,

Apparently photobucket wants $500 a year to continue hosting the smilies and rank images on this site. They can fuck right off, I'll be uploading the images to my server in the next few weeks (lots of work and it'll take some time). Please bear with me.

Indeed they can. I've seen quite a few people complaining that they've ruined years of blogs and other resources due to a recent change meaning photos are lost. Updating all that past content to new storage and links will be a phenomenal effort. Many are choosing not to bother.

They can ram their new attitude where it doesn't shine. They'll probably go under with a few years now.

Have you considered just removing the graphical rank images? Surely they are nice to have rather than need to have?

Yeah, but I like them!

Trying to decide whether to upload all the images to my current server or finally get round to moving servers and do it then...

As it turns out, I can't just disable rank images, I have to go through each one and delete the image url. This is slightly less work than uploading the images to my server, then going through each rank changing the file path.

As I've said, bear with me and I'll have it fixed within the next few weeks (it's school holidays so I have even less free time now the kids are always here).

OK, got rid of the rank images for now. They will return before too long, just very time consuming and tedious work so I tend to put it off!

Ohh no. Thank you for informing Because I am the active user of Photobucket and didn't know about it.

Restored most of the rank images by uploading them to the server. Just need to fix the smilies now!
