Photobucket images in Reference Gallery

Post by Amor Vincit Omnia » Sun Nov 17, 2019 6:24 pm

The Admin Team has noticed recently that Photobucket images which have been made visible, albeit with a Photobucket announcement across them, are now being rendered as blurred images.

We decided a long time ago that it was too big a job to delete these impaired images across the forum as a whole, but we intend to do so now in the Reference Gallery as this, in conjunction with the CW Archive, is a key resource area and needs to look attractive.

Please therefore read the announcement in the Reference Gallery. If you can update your own images that would be brilliant.

Many thanks.

To assist in finding images, it's possible to use the "advanced search" to specify:

Keyword: Photobucket

Author: Your user ID

Search in forums: Reference Gallery

This will return a list of posts (if you have any). For example...

search.php?keywords=photobucket&terms=a ... mit=Search

For my part, I will attempt to re-host the above images and change the links.

Despite the permanent sticky that is requesting Reference Gallery photos, I want to take this opportunity to remind everyone that we do still need a lot of photos posted.

The Reference Gallery has many models that have none, or only one photo. A list of needed photos can be seen here.

The Reference Gallery is more important than ever as it is linked to every model in the CWArchives. If you have the watches and can take a few moments to take and add the needed photos, it would be greatly appreciated by potential buyers and collectors of CW watches.

Thank You.
