I check here every now and again, and would agree that its much more quiet than it use to be. But I think a huge part of that is Facebook and the night hunting groups on there. One of the group I'm in has 20k plus members.

Much easier to post photos and videos there.

ya... since photo#ucket went all hostage taker on everyones pics.... venues that offer easy photo hosting have gained a lot of popularity. their little stunt destroyed 10+ years of user created forum content on the web with just that one policy change. thats sour'ed many on content creation and i believe started the real platform shift away from this classic forum format. if you think about it.. thats about the time that the FB groups really started exploding. people were looking for options... and fb is one of the largest on the planet.

i know PM has its on hosting option, but uploading a pic on someplace like a FB group is 2 or 3 clicks and its embedded.

on forums that offer hosting - you have to upload an image first, then insert it to your thread/post, etc. fb's offerings are WAAAAAAAAAAY simpler than even using photo#ucket was.

and the number of web forums like this that offer hosting are very small (due to the cost of hosting space, and bandwidth cost concerns) especially with the average size of photos going up every year.

i mean sure, not all firearms/hunting forums are tanking - but lets be honest, bARf.com has always been as much about a being a fanboy (and hateraid!) user base as it is about knowledge base site. :p

Donít know about you guys, but ďPhotobuckedĒ has been swamping me lately with e-mails wanting me to subscribe at $6.95 a month in order to unblur my photos and take off the watermark. I have probably received 8-10 emails within the last month.

Yeah, they keep telling me I'm over the limit, and I haven't uploaded anything since they went off the tracks.

Reckon I'll stick around here as I don't care much for FakeBook.

well according to the new rules, pretty much all of our accounts are "over the limit"

i think the new free account is something like 250 photos or 2.5gb of data.


when they changes the rules - and made them retroactive - of "free forever" accounts most of us signed up for, i had several thousand images uploaded, the majority of which were 3rd party posted on various hobby forums.

i had (like a lot of folks) 10 years of content i spent my time on destroyed by that little stunt. even if i were to port all those images to a different host, i dont think i could go back and find all the image links to fix... or if i were able to... it would take MONTHS of my life at a full time work schedule to do so. Not worth it, so i've just considered it abandoned at this point.

which from talking with others - a lot of folks did the same. [beeep] shame.

I think Photobucket now realizes their big mistake and is desperately trying to coax people back. Itís obvious by their numerous e-mails lately. I received one that had a deadline to respond. I didnít, then the next thing I knew they were flooding me with mail trying to get me to sign up. I have something over 1,000 photos there, but to my knowledge have copies of all except one. I can live without that one.

I'm back to hunting now, hogs and coyote. It's just been too darn hot... but things are getting nice now.

I use Imageshack for my photos...to heck with Photobucket.

You have to have at least $10k in night vision or thermal optics to be interesting here anymore.

Here in Ohio I find that the action is just starting to pick up. I haven't hunted a lot this fall. It has been spotty when I do get out. I'd say the little ones are starting to venture out on their own these past couple of weeks. I seem to have developed an affliction for missing. [beeep] it's driving me nuts.
