Talking about Photosuckit in Gooney's topic, I'm going to try recover my pics from the website and close my account.
Recovering my pics might not be possible though, there are some comments on the net that they are holding everyone's pictures to ransom.
But I will close it down anyways.

Raffles, I tried to download my pics but could never get past a certain step.

I then just said stuff it and closed my account. Done and dusted with Photophucket.

We upload images to a sub-domain of this URL and then post the links as normal - voila :champion:

Took me a while to do it but I have also reduced the number of attachments down to almost nothing. Attachments are also uploaded to the sub-domain and images posted that way :whistle:

This has drastically reduced the size of the DB and made the site more manageable overall :good:

I eventually told Photosuckit to get lost. I'm using servimg.com by virtue of a previous forum platform https://www.forumotion.com/
