    Todd, happy to use your internal one, but assumed (1) the problem you note is limited to the PhotoPirates site only, and (2) we helped reduce bandwidth that cost you money by using an off-site host.

    In my case, that is SmugMug.

    Are you saying that no one can see those, e.g., this disgusting item (that cost me 39 Euro last week in Germany)? :giggle:

    Best,

    I'm paying a small boatload now for web bandwidth, and server size is huge, so I'd prefer to have them here so they don't go missing in short order. I can see your lovely & expensive shirt, but my bet is it'll live there for a short time period and go missing unless you are paying significantly for your Smugmug account.

    Hi Todd,

    I host my photos on a paid "pro" account with flickr.com. I've posted over 4000 photos to all my photography forums and mailing lists from that site since 2008. None of them have ever gone missing as far as I can tell; in fact, I regularly see viewers favoriting various photos I posted almost a decade ago when I monitor the account activity. :)

    Hi Todd.
    Kudos for all you do for the Guzziholics of the world.
    Just wanted to know,...... I've slowly been going through my posts that now feature unseeable photos from Photofuckit on other Guzzi forums and updating them, replacing the ransom note images with (to the best of my knowledge) the relevant pictures. On Guzzitech, there doesn't seem to be an "Edit post" so I can't replace the images. Am I missing something? How can I - we upload replacement photos on old posts?

    Not sure about that. I know as a moderator I see the edit post button. It is near the report option. Take another look and let me know if you see the edit option for your posts. Be sure you are signed in when you look.

    Most threads I check that I've posted to allow me to edit a post still. However, some others ... like this one ... do not. It must be a matter of message server setup.

    Not much I can do about that. Perhaps you could reply to that post and then add the photo.

    All there is next to the report button is the poster's name and date/time. No edit button anywhere.

    On posts you create, there should be the edit button. Moderators and Administrator can edit any post.

    Thanks John, that should be a true statement. User posts should be editable.
