Game ribbons

Postby Chomley-Warner » Sun Oct 15, 2017 12:09 pm

Photobucket has changed it's hosting plans and now don't allow linking with free accounts, resulting in ugly place holder graphics on this forum.

Many forum users have used Photobucket to host their forum signature graphics and game medal ribbons, and this has resulted in is horrible mess in their signatures.

Could I ask that forum users please address this issue, replacing with graphics hosted elsewhere.

Game medal ribbons are easy. Every game that has ever had a game ribbon created are hosted on this forum server and so will always correctly appear - they can be found here:

Sometime soon, probably from Christmas, I will be deleting the Photobucket place holders

Dave I've noticed that quite a few medal ribbons in signatures aren't displaying correctly when people post (broken image link). The individual inks seem to be fine - I tested three individually but cutting and pasting the urls, but when they are part of the signature on a post, they don't display. It seems a bit random as some work and some don't. Any ideas? It may be something to do with the entire strings of [img] tags but I'm stumped if I know what it might be.

Make sure the URLs begin with https rather than http and all should be well.
