Photobucket WARNING
« on: July 07, 2017, 08:25:55 AM »
Photobucket is no longer allowing you to post YOUR pictures in third party sites. :bdid: LIKE THIS ONE. They now want $400.00 per year upgrade to allow this. :bash: This is creating havoc all over forums throughout the web. Tutorials are lost as well as ride and hunting/fishing reports that have pics attached.

I say GOODBYE!
Now hosting my photos in google photos.

That really stinks. It's the only reason I ever used it. Thanks for posting this.

Free to $400 a year is pretty steep. What changed? They get bought up? Loose a bunch of add revenue?

Original removed.

More likely that they are simply looking to monetize the platform a little more after growing it user base.  I suspect they'll pull back a bit with ad supported freebies.  Or die.

I just tested cubeupload and it worked for me.
https://cubeupload.com/

Upload images, copy the "Direct Link", and paste it between the img delimiters.

I've always hated PB


I used to use imageshack, not sure what I'd use now.  A lot of images are going to go to facebook stories which I hate that idea they get enough crap we don't need a single source multimedia megagiant  :bash:

They will disappear as they make their way through all the users. Mine finally went down yesterday. Hours and days of work building picture threads here and elsewhere all down the drain. screw you Photobucket. I hope the business fails and the decision maker of this gets their balls slammed in a metal door over and over or their overies pierced with darts thousands of times.

Weren't they making a fortune off the annoying pop-up adds that made me hate using what used to be a cool place to store photos? I'm out.
