Sorry if this is the wrong place for this.
Just logged on to see the Photobucket watermark has been replaced by a complete blurring of the images. Is there any way to get around this?
The watermark was annoying but the images are now completely blurred and impossible to see.

Real-life/Never-were ships are already uploaded to Main Archive:
http://shipbucket.com/
FD-scale Real-life/Nver-were vehicles will also follow there within next several months (it's a very time-consuming process).
Parts and some, but just some AU stuff is in Shipbucket's Wiki page:
http://shipbucket.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

I noticed that unfortunately that Photobucket problem all or nearly all of KimWerner's awesome Coats of Arms (which apparently weren't uploadded to Wiki). :(
(I happen to have them saved - at least most of them, unless I overlooked something - but I have no idea - nor time at this point - how to upload them to SB Wiki, so it would be great if someone reliable and competent could take care of it).

What about just make an temporarily dump folder, with them all in. So they are at least available for now, the "people" can solve out what to do later

Well, it could be a solution for a while. I'll try to do it bit later.

@orionfield was kind enough to point out that there does seem to be a workaround for Photobucket's recent idiocy: replace the leading "i" in the URL with "w", and you get a viewable image without watermark or blurring.

How Photobucket stays in business is beyond me...

eg: http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb21 ... OH-58D.png

vs.:
