    Photobucket Stops All Posting

    This is a heads up for everyone, as it has hit me personally hard. Photobucket has decided to start charging obscene amounts of money to link to images, or to display images on other sites, referred to as 3rd party hosting. They now want $99 dollars a year just to share image links, and $399 dollars a year to Display images. My old gundam games have been decimated of their images, and all the links to photoshops I have done for people over the years are now broken.

    Anyone who has them, beware, your images are still on their servers, but no existing links, or [img type pictures work anymore.
    "What do you mean it's OUT OF STOCK/BACK-ORDERED!?!?!"

    If Newtypes can predict the future, and feel their opponents intentions, how come none of them were ever able to dodge the Bright Slap?

    Thats basically what I'm doing, their service has been trash for a long time and the only reason I kept using the site was because I had a ton of pictures there but to heck with them, I'm downloading what I don't already have, deleting everything else then sending them a e-mail that they can stuff my account up their ass

    Hmm I have not been charged for anything yet.. and if they ask for money I will go with imgur lol. Their mobile app is actually pretty stable and useful, the PC version is terrible.

    Re: Photobucket Stops All Posting

    Welp, F)C* Photobucket. I have a couple of thousand pics on different forums hosted there. No way am i reuploading them to Imgur, Flickr, etc and editing them. Been using PB for over a decade now, and then this happens. :/

    Luckily all the pictures I have on PB I still have on my computer, so no need to try and down load them off the sight. But I have been using tapAtalk with my phone lately. But I guess I will have to get something like imgur also for when I get my real camera back up and working.

    Re: Photobucket Stops All Posting

    This is screwed up. I noticed this last week when I tried to post some pics on another forum. They are friggin' insane if they think people are going to pay 400 dollars a year to be able to link the pics on forums and sites alike... it sucks because everything I ever posted on all forums (a frequent a lot of different ones) now no longer work, but at least all the pics I have on photobucket are uploaded there with the only reason to link them to forums etc... I'll probably close my account and use flickr

    Re: Photobucket Stops All Posting

    Have you guys successfully downloaded all your pics off photobucket? I've been trying to do it for the past 2 days with no luck.

    I moved all my pics to one album so I can download them all at once with ease. I keep getting "hmm something didn't click. Want to give it another shot? Try again later"

    Seems like I might have to download each pic individually...smh
