No more photobucket pics PSA

Postby Duhjoker » Sun Jul 16, 2017 8:58 pm

Just wanted to drop a line about posting pics and using pic hosting from photobucket. Photobucket a site created to store and share photos has now started to charge a fee for hosting photos. The fee is pretty ridiculous and not worth it unless you are like a pro photographer.

What this means is that any pic that you've posted inside a forum or other element, the links will now be broken. The worst part is that I cannot download them back to my E-device. I've posted quite a few pics on this forum and plenty other and now they will not show. I apolagize for any inconvenience that this has caused on my forum threads.

I noticed and was about to comment to upload the picture direct to the forum and not use any img service.
Many forums do suffer from using external services that in a few years disappears and some super nice content goes boom.

I'm gonna replace as much as I can when I can. I've been a lil busy so I had not noticed. It really sux as I have had that account for many many years and never received any warning or notice about the change of practice. So many posts on so many forums. It's gonna prove to be a nightmare.

If you run across a post and need the pic, please message me and link me to the particular post/s and I will get to it as fast as I can.
