... Have just made third-party photo hosting a paid feature and have broken all Free Account links to photos on this forum! Without warning! Express your outrage; I have!

Saw a similar post on CGN. The consensus seems to be delete account, start a new one a Imgur. I haven't done so yet, but that's the plan.
I'm no tech genius, but without any traffic, I don't see how they can stay in business. I think I saw that they want close to $400/yr to allow 3rd party sharing, good luck with that.

I agree that it sucks for forums and such, looking at an old thread and seeing the photos are gone is frustrating. Lots of knowledge and information will be missing.

I had a look on my old forums and everything is still posting.

but I had my wedding pics hosted on PB and I think that is gone.
and I have no back up.

I downloaded the pics of some of my project. thanks for the heads up maybe I was in time to save a few car projects.

Dont delete the old photobucket account. Leave the photos up to make the money grabbers use server space to store your dead account. $400 usd, what a joke. They will be bankrupt soon.

Yes, if they continue with such a ridiculous idea ($399 US per year for 3rd party hosting), my account there will sit in limbo, in order to punish them by taking up their disc space.... I won't add to it, but all the pics, charts and graphs I have already posted in threads on various Forums will go blank.... I will also stop paying the $30 a year I do currently because I was over their free storage limit.... something I was doing so that I could continue sharing my knowledge and projects....

I have all the graphs and charts on my own computer, but it would take, literally, hundreds of hours to move them to a new service and change the links.... so that is NOT going to happen.... I feel sorry for the impact that will have on my threads, but I simply don't have the time to move them.... In addition, some Forums block any editing after 1/2 hour, so I couldn't change the links, even if I wanted to....

They already went to war with anyone who uses ad-blocker or ad-blocker plus, now this. Classic example of how to very quickly make yourself irrelevant.

Dont like me using ad-blocker? Then stop spamming every page I visit with garbage, malware infested, 3'rd party ad-servers. Need revenue? Present a business model that appeals to me, maybe I'll bite.

I think even when they backtrack, the damage is done. The Internet is very unforgiving place and who would trust them now.....

I can see yours fine. I think mine are still working also. I posted a picture near the beginning of this thread and asked if any one could see it but I didn't get any responses.
