I have them in my picture file on my computer and in the cloud.
I also have nothing to hide.
If they want to use them... whatever. I don't care.
Oh wait.... is that a black helicopter flying around outside? ☺
It's not about hiding anything, it's about retaining control of your own property so it is not used in a manner that you disagree with.

When Pirate went belly up with VS's policies, most of the regulars decided to leave and did not want their content to be used to promote the old site and wanted to remove it but were blocked form doing so for the most part. While I do not necessarily advocate removing content, I do support the idea that pictures and other tech that is posted by someone that was created with their time, effort and expense, should remain theirs. For this reason, I retain the ownership of all pics and do not upload. If VS or any other site owner were to decide to do something I find distasteful and would make me want to no longer be associated with one of their sites, I have the ability to remove my pics since linking does not give them a legal leg to stand on over any sort of license.

And as for things we have lost, it has been brought to my attention that we no longer have the VIN decoder?

How do you delete them after 3 days? Manually?

It took me years to finally figure out how to post pics on the old site (yes I'm lazy in that respect). So I should be safe here with this set up lol

This isn't one of my biggest concerns.
Again... I don't care. :giggle:

I was more concerned with Sam selling a site that was made what it is by the membership. It took a few years, but I got over it. Nothing special about any of the pics I post, that would upset me if they were copied. I figured a long time ago, if I did not want it stolen, do not put it on the internet for the world to see.

I use Gmail for my non critical e-mail, and I know google scans everything I send or receive, including pics. They proudly claim they can track, and identify 90 some percent of the people in the world, even those not on the internet, mainly by scanning our pics, and other stuff posted on the web.

There are probably entire communities in Oklahoma that Google doesn't know exists. And vice versa

I thought this was already resolved. I am checking with the techs again.
