CHRIS CRAFT COMMANDER FORUM ® .......A photo-intensive technical reference file and ongoing newsletter regarding the original fiberglass Chris-Craft Commander series. This is an independent not-for-profit and non-commercial web site, not affiliated with the Chris Craft Commander Club ~~ or ~~ Chris-Craft Corporation. Our mission here is to "have fun and share information" about the Commander series (and those associated fiberglass boats on the Chris-Craft family tree) for your individual personal use, and by doing so help promote the good name of Chris-Craft, and help preserve, restore, and appreciate Chris-Craft boats. The main reference feature is the ever expanding MASTER INDEX File which contains what we believe to be the world's largest collection of documentation photos and technical information on the Chris-Craft Commander line of boats, (like these original brochure scans, featuring the iconic first 38 Commander styled by Fred Hudson, and many of the great Dick Avery renditions that followed) , (a huge collection of Chris-Craft 427 tuning and specification information), and a few words about how to use the forum.

We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".

This is a "sticky" and it will remain at the top of The Forum for awhile until thw word gets out on the demise of Photobucket.



Before we get started I want to update everyone on the most recent tip. It's Fotki, and here is the link
http://www.network54.com/Forum/424840/message/1509159454/Thanks+from+a+tip+from+Hakan+in+Sweden%2C+Fotki+looks+VERY+PROMISING+%21%21%2C

Everything below this sentence represents the original message.




Photobucket (without warning) has changed their policy and now photos that you may have posted in the past will no longer be visible to anyone except yourself, unless you pay the ransom for the upgraded service of $39 per month.

If you are one of many people who have posted really good info here and you want to resurrect the images (free) you can either edit them yourself or just email them to me at ChrisCraftCommander@hotmail.com and I'll do it for you.





Since I have no choice but to pay the $39 per month in order to maintain The Forum, the images I post and have archived will remain intact, but the ones you posted won't unless you pay the price (which is robbery) or change over to another photo hosting service.

It's sad, because there are tens of millions of photos people have posted around the world on a lot of forums that will be gone unless Photobucket management changes their minds.

For now we'll assume they won't be changing their minds.




Things change.
Nothing stays the same forever.
Old computers and programs become obsolete.

The good news is "there are other photo hosting sites"

I will be testing alternative photo hosting sites for our readership and members here, and I will update my findings here on this thread.

For now here are two (2) that seem to work nicely, and fast too. The images below on this thread were posted on these services as a test and demo for everyone. I recommend everyone stop with Photobucket now and go with tinypic.com or postimg.org

Stay tuned,

regards,
Paul










HERE IS THE POSTIMG.ORG TEST BELOW



The next free photo hosting service is postimg.org, otherwise known as postimage.org and https://postimage.io/ (they're all the same thing, just different ways to get there).

(here is how it works)


postimg.org




Kent 12







HERE IS THE TINYPIC.COM TEST BELOW


The two images below wwre tested on tinypic.com (works pretty much like photobucket did in the past with the direct link)
