      PHOTOBUCKET CHANGES WILL AFFECT OUR FORUM   07/13/2017

      Photobucket has changed their rules of usage. They are not allowing embedded photos to forums with the simple accounts all of us at GALS have. The mods are really annoyed - Photobucket wants $39.99 A MONTH which has to be paid in advance in one sum of $399!!! Can you imagine? Some of us have an account that should allow us to have our photos 'hot linked' as they call it, through December 2018.   There are alternative services, but they all are charging, too. This will mean the end of our avatars, signatures and images of Gerry that we're so fond of sharing in our posts.   Image Shack will still allow sharing, but they are charging for that service, although not as much as Photobucket.   The images cannot be hosted by GALS as that would drive up the cost of hosting, which we already struggle to pay.   We're looking into alternatives.   To find out more about the issue:  http://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/categories/200056995-Sharing-and-Linking   http://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/articles/115010128088-What-users-are-affected-by-the-changes-to-our-3rd-Party-Hosting-policies- If you were a Plus Account subscriber in good standing as of June 1, 2017,

Hollywood Icons Gather for the Tenth Annual "Night Before" Fundraiser in Support of the Motion Picture & Television Fund

BEVERLY HILLS, CA, Feb 26, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- As Hollywood prepares itself for its biggest night of the year, Academy Award® nominees and presenters joined some of the most powerful and well-known industry influencers for the tenth annual "Night Before" party to benefit the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF). Funds raised during the evening support the numerous programs and services the MPTF provides to more than 60,000 members of the entertainment industry every year.

This year's presenting sponsors were AOL, HP, L'Oreal, Relativity Media, Target and Variety. The sold-out event was held at the beautiful and historic Beverly Hills Hotel, with featured chef, Gregorio Stephenson of Nobu Malibu, providing his trademark cuisine for guests.

"For ten years, the 'Night Before' has been a celebration of so much that we as an industry can be proud of," said Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation and Chairman of the MPTF Foundation. "It is extraordinary year after year to see the selfless generosity across our community that makes it possible for the MPTF to continue to be there for those who need its outstanding services."

The "Night Before" benefit brought out the world's biggest stars from film, television, and music, including: Amy Adams, Jennifer Aniston, Jack Black, Kenneth Branagh, Gerard Butler, George Clooney, Glenn Close, Bradley Cooper, Bryan Cranston, Chace Crawford, Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise, Ted Danson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Hudson, Kristin Davis, Viola Davis & Julius Tennon, Laura Dern, Zooey Deschanel, Michael Douglas, Kirsten Dunst, Anna Faris, Colin Farrell, Fergie, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Tina Fey, Morgan Freeman, Topher Grace, Jennifer Westfeldt & Jon Hamm, Tom Hanks, Salma Hayek, Katherine Heigl, Elton John, January Jones, Diane Keaton, Taylor Lautner, Rooney Mara, Julie Chen & Les Moonves, Matthew Morrison, Gary Oldman, Timothy Olyphant, Amy Poehler & Will Arnett, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, Octavia Spencer, Kate Capshaw & Steven Spielberg, Ben Stiller, Taylor Swift, Channing Tatum, Sofia Vergara and Harvey Weinstein.

"What is extraordinary about the event is that it has raised over $50 million for the MPTF charitable services over the 10 years," said Ken Scherer, CEO of the MPTF Foundation.

The "Night Before" was produced for the tenth consecutive year by Robyn Leuthe Norris, with Silver Birches creating the decor for the party.

The event has been held annually the night before the Academy Awards® since 2003 when it instantly became one of the most coveted invitations in town and kicks off what is now a much-anticipated awards season tradition.

Event sponsors provided activities for event guests and support to the MPTF, contributing to an evening filled with entertainment and fun.

AOL "AOL is proud to support the incredible work of the MPTF and the artist community," said Tim Armstrong, Chairman and CEO, AOL.

Having helped millions of Americans to get online, AOL Inc. AOL -1.14% is on a mission to inform, entertain and connect the world. The home of a world-class collection of premium brands, AOL creates original content that engages audiences on a local and global scale.

"Our newest consumer Ultrabook, the HP ENVY 14 Spectre, commands attention with its unparalleled use of glass and stunning performance, and we are excited to showcase it to attendees at the 'Night Before' event."
