Photobucket extorts $400 from users to show images

Posted by Tollyman (Admin) at Jul 16 2017, 12:20 PM. 3 comments

From now on anyone who has their own images hosted by Photobucket showing on any other site (including forums) will need to pay $400 a year. :rant

As you can see at the top of the forum 2 odd looking 'rev counter' images where once there was a real image.

Also all images posted by users on this forum (including all of mine - except banner thankfully) will now show this image.

For example:


I had always thought that even though FCF is not very busy it was a great source of information on football cards since 2008, loads of images and info that will act as a great source of knowledge.

Sudden removal of a lot of the images is really poor, seems Photobucket is extorting cash from small users.


Happy Christmas

Another packed year comes to an end. Lots of great collections were released both premium and pocket money. I hope you managed to finish a few sets and picked up those elusive last cards!

Thanks to everyone who has posted on the FCF over the last year you all make it the place it is :-)

And of course my thanks to the Mods & Admins who help keep this forum a fun & safe place to visit.

I wish everyone a merry Christmas & a happy new year!

Unfortunately due to poor trading practices we have had to exclude Motorlux indefinately.

If he completes his side of some trades which have been outstanding for over 2 years he may be allowed back.

Anyone in the middle of trades that were being conducted by PM please contact an admin who can let you have the email he registered with.



A big thank you....

I should say it more often but better late than never!

This forum has become a great resource for collectors around the world and while I created it back in 2008 it is all our amazing members contributions that have made it what it is today.

When I look at all the posts regarding all aspects of card collecting I'm very proud of what we have all created.

For example the adrenalyn xl limited edition posts each year is an excellent resource created and maintained by members dedication. This is just one great example of the wealth of information contained in members posts

We have lots of checklists posted for not just major collections but all sorts of obscure sets! While it's not just one person we can definitely pick out Alan's contributions for special mention.

The forum is a great library of info and it's grown beyond my wildest dreams

Thanks to everyone who has contributed, admins, mods and all our members. Long may it continue!

Footballcardsforum reaches the 5,000 members milestone!

Posted by Tollyman (Admin) at Jan 30 2014, 01:37 PM. 3 comments

Took a while but we have hit the 5,000 members milestone. There are bigger forums but this is quite a significant figure especially as the forum is completely open and people do not have to register to read posts.

Normally forums especially ones as big as this can be quite a handful to moderate but tbh our members are so good there really is very little to do apart from add sections etc. That said my fellow admins and mods do a great job keeping an eye on posts and generally helping out members, so a massive thanks to them for all there efforts.

A huge thank you to all our members for contributing to the forum and hopefully we can keep growing and continue to provide a family friendly place for collectors of all ages to discuss & trade football cards for many years to come.

Nice that it happened in our 5th anniversary year as well! :cheers :clap

Footballcardsforum is 5 years old today!

This thread was posted (to the minute) exactly 5 years since the first post was made on FCF 5 years ago.

A massive thanks to all the members, mods and fellow admins for all your contributions to the forum over those last 5 years, it's your hard work that has made this forum what it is today. I like to think the forum provides a great place for football card collectors to meet and exchange info in a safe and family friendly environment.

We have nearly 5000 members with over 200 online everyday which shows what good health the forum is in.

A big thanks also to Futera, Topps & Panini for their help and contribution to this success.

Here's to the next 5 years!

:cheers :clap

Advertising & Linking to other websites on FCF - Important

Posted by Tollyman (Admin) at Oct 27 2013, 08:44 PM. 6 comments

FCF is now selling limited advertising space on the Forum.

Money received goes towards running competitions (prizes & postage) plus a few incidentals.

It is unfair to those that advertise with us that other websites can advertise completely free of charge and in many cases contribute nothing to the forum or provide links to FCF.

As such, all websites who create a thread in the 'Links to Football cards shops/websites' section must have a prominent link back to FCF. All current threads and new threads that do not meet these requirements will be moved to a non visible area until the conditions are met.

Members that prominently advertise websites in their signatures must also provide links to FCF in the websites being advertised.

Please Do Not Send First To New Members

Posted by Tollyman (Admin) at Sep 12 2013, 07:24 PM. 0 comments

This is a reminder to exercise extreme caution when trading with members that are new to the forum and have no trading history.


Even if the trade is tempting please ensure you get your items before sending to the other person.

This is most especially true when dealing with people overseas.

Take care!

For defrauding at least 10 members of footballcardsforum.

Good riddance.

Contact info is in his signature. Please write to him with details of your trade if you are still awaiting cards or money.

Shame that idiots like Naveen take advantage of members trust and goodwill, don't worry though what goes around............

Naveensachdev account suspended

Posted by Tollyman (Admin) at Jul 22 2013, 09:32 PM. 62 comments

Naveensachdev has had his FCF membership suspended due to bad trading practices. He cannot read any posts on the forum but can send pm's.

He has been asked to complete all his trades straight away.

If you have trades outstanding please post them here.

Just put the details of the trade and how long it has been outstanding. Please refrain from name calling and abusive remarks.

Any other comments will be deleted.

Referral site - www.laststicker.ru

Posted by Tollyman (Admin) at Mar 15 2013, 10:17 AM. 8 comments

FCF is always looking for websites to work with in order cross promote. If any member can think of a popular site we can work with please let me know.

From the stats I get from Google analytics it would appear that we get the most referrals from www.laststicker.ru

Anyone know anything about this site?

Do you feel that the forum is independent or has our relationships with the manufacturers comprised the integrity of the forum (as another forum has alluded).

Please post your thoughts and vote in the poll.
