Upgrade to Photobucket Pro ? Empty Upgrade to Photobucket Pro ?

Post by JTatCMTO on January 19th 2009, 3:06 am

Hello,

After creating my own Free forum, today I notice that huge banners are stretched across my forum, telling me to Upgrade to Photobucket Pro...

What gives ?? I never used Photobucket before - why is my forum SPAMMED with this huge "Crime Scene - DO NOT ENTER"-like tape across my Forum ?

How do I get rid of this unsightly and and unappreciated SPAM ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Thanks,
John.

i think you're using Jalokim's theme perhaps?
it means the bandwidth exceeded.

Do a search and look for "jalokims skin" and look for TODAY because this has had many many topics.

Try using a new / temporary skin

Yes, I have this problem too...it is awful...and I am using a default skin !

I would expect more easily found advice to be forthcoming from the Forumotion techies about this.

Hello,

sorry for this issue, we just noticed it on our issue and are doing our best to re-upload this image elsewhere.
These themes were made by Jalokim, and actually I need to figure out why it didn't host them automatically on our servers.

I invite you to try out another of our themes for the time being.

Hello,

I've tried other themes that you speak of, Typlo, and it refuses to go to the new theme that I select. No matter how many times I try, it won't go to the new theme.

This is really annoying ; how is it allowed that the Photobucket Spammer was able to access our forum with their trash banner ?

Please give all of us a REAL method in how to remove this SPAM from our forums - PLEASE !!

Thanks,
John.

Hi

There is no spammer. Jalokim the creator of the skins we use is having a problem with his photobucket account which he is sorting out.

check out this thread https://help.forumotion.com/manage-the-appearance-of-your-forum-f45/only-topic-jalokim-themes-image-bandwidth-problems-merged-t34703.htm

I was using a Jalokim theme and I also have this problem (our own photobucket bandwidth is only at 2%). I contacted the Photobucket people about this and they are investigating.

I just changed our theme (we now have Avril Lavigne. Woop.) and it made NO DIFFERENCE at all! Surely this means it's not Jalokim's photobucket that's the problem?

Queenie check out the main thread about this >>> https://help.forumotion.com/manage-the-appearance-of-your-forum-f45/only-topic-jalokim-themes-image-bandwidth-problems-merged-t34703.htm

You can change your theme temporarily until the problem is resolved. If you use a prosilver theme your forum will be ok. There is a post about this on above thread
