I'm trying to post an image in the gallery but when I hit the Image post tab it gives an error message about having exceeded my limit - as I have not done anything that appears counter-intuitive !! Can anyone help? Steve
Ah I see, basic members account cannot upload images to BritBike server, only upgraded members can. Basic members can only link to photo that are hosted elsewhere. Upgraded members can upload 6 photos in a gallery thread. I will look into this next week as I am going on a trip right now.
Ok, so now Photobucket want a subscription of $399 PA as from 26/6/17 to upload links on other webpages. Who has used an alternative site? What a load of [censored] this is. I am quite happy to pay a small fee to become a member of this forum, but I feel I am being blackmailed into it, by having to join to upload photos.
Steve, who is blackmailing you? It's not me/britbike. I have nothing to do with photobu... This forum has been online 21 years and would have been long gone If I had not found sponsor help in the past. See this page scroll all the way to the bottom. http://www.britbike.com/sponsor/
The first years was not cheap I payed the same amount that you would buy a decent running BSA A65. Every year.. Familiy was not happy to see holiday money spent on a website. Then members and companies started to contribute and with out that help it wouild have eventually been closed.
Luckily that did not happen. Still there was no way to upload photos but that changed along the way. However there was still an issue that the database and storage was limited.
Still I wanted to offer image upload service and a new member account was created the Premium member who can upload images and documents. You see over the years spammers, scammer and other non wanted creatures will take advantages andpost whatever they like and it will be annoying and we just don't want to deal with that.
The premium members group that pays about a dollar per month is perfect you see a scammer will not likely apply for membership and the pay the 12.95 dollars because it will reveal their identity.
BTW nothing is free.. you may think that this website is free but as I mentioned it is the sponsors that pay for it. As a "free" member you don't get all the benefitsbut quit a few. Cheers Morgan your admin.
there is no way i can express how much i have i have benefited from this website.
like many people, i went through 20-plus years when there were no available suppliers, no available information, no available contacts, and no way to do anything with an old british machine except on your own, badly.
i have benefited immensely from this place and have paid for a life membership.
cheap at the price.
Into the distance a ribbon of black Stretched to the point of no turning back A flight of fancy on a windswept field Standing alone my senses reeled A fatal attraction is holding me fast how How can I escape this irresistible grasp?
I paid and sent my membership in. But I have no idea how to make a pic smaller to upload. I use a Iphone or Ipad. It’s terrible what photo bucket has done to all these sites. If it was a small fee I’d be fine but 400 a year is crazy. There was such a wealth of info with pics. Wish we could get it back. I have no idea what to use to post pics now.
