Unfortunately the photobucket blackmail has completely massacred our gallery section. Thousands of pics have been broken and Ive been trying to clean up the area but to be honest the place has been destroyed.

@Louis has been doing some cleaning to but the task is monumental and I think we may have to just white wash (delete) the area and start again from scratch.

Any opinions or ideas gratefully accepted.

Having just had a look through the area I'd agree with it being a disaster. (Like Zinzan would dare to disagree with Bootie/Shane :) )

Good job by @Louis, might be an idea to give him a week or two to sort it
or could we shuffle the galleries - start a section called "OLD Galleries" and a Complete new section - with instructions "NO Photobucket links"

The majority of the images hosted are photobucket links.... so at one point or another they will drop of and need continual updating... I believe it is to big a job to maintain.

Of course we should wait and see what Louis can do, but a fresh start for images wouldn't be the worst thing. It's been a very long time since I went waay back on an image topic to see what was there.

However, the landscape is so volatile I am concerned it could easily happen all over again.

We will be storing them on site. If 2 of us kept open a photobucket account it would be $800. There is now way I would get charged that a year for holding extra content.

Bootie/Shane, excuse me, it may be the translation, but I do not understand the message.
I continue with the cleaning?
Yes continue... if you start at the top I will start at the bottom... update what you did in here so we dont look over the same galleries.
