Thanks Jay. Meanwhile, they got to me and sent the email today. I guess they heard me talking about them.

Photobucket got to me as well. Some of my photos were disabled because of 3rd party hosting. I've started the process of removing my albums from their site. It's a slow process but I figured I better do it before everything gets blocked or held for ransom.

If your Photobucket account is listed above as one of the blocked ones, and you want to fix the blocked images on CCC, you can give me your Photobucket account/subdomain, and I can give you a list of all the images used here on CCC. It will include the album names in the URLs. Once you have downloaded those albums, if you put them somewhere I can get them like Dropbox or Google Drive, I can fix process them and fix your images on the CCC site.

Hey Jay, while you're making improvements to the attachments feature, do you think we could get more than 3 attachments per post? Like, say... 10?

Done.
10 was the number over at the other site. It was unlimited here at one point, wasn't it? That is my recollection.

Unlimited would be cool too, but probably impractical. 10 seems much more workable than 3 anyway. Thank you!

I don't remember if it has ever been unlimited here. Setting it to "unlimited" makes me feel a little uneasy since we do occasionally still get spammers. People had to make mulitple posts before to include more than three images, which uses more resources than putting all the images in a single post, so it makes sense to increase it to something you as a community feel is practical. Why don't you give 10 a try for a while, and if there are issues with it, let us know.

I kill a spam account about once a week, so far two this past week. They seem to know enough to answer our Cougar quiz questions.. Yet I still get at least one legitimate person a week that can't tell us how many lug nuts are on a Cougar wheel. It is all about finding the balance.

I was just saying because I distinctly remember that here I could include more than on the other site. No complaint whatever has been decided!
