Dumb****s at photobucket
« on: June 30, 2017, 07:52:49 AM »
As you may have noticed, photobucket has recently changed their terms of service. They no longer allow linking of photos from their site to 3rd party websites. This board will soon not have many photos showing as more users accounts are 'updated'.  This especially sucks for me because all the FAQs, HOWTOs, Trinity gun S/Ns, and all my posts are served from there.  We will have to see what other options are available and devide what we want to do. In the meantime, if you come across an admin post w/o photos, that's tge reason why.

Good job photobucket!  hunter)

Meh it's a free site, you get what you pay for. The no notice that things were majorly changing is the crappy part.

Yeah, I agree.  They should have given advanced warning.  Now, its kind of like they are holding your photos for ransom.

Calling all members!

Post up what photo hosting service you use (other then photohostage) and why you use it.

I was using photohostage, then went to tinypic, then went back to photohostage, so I guess now I will be "shopping around" again.  Kind of thinking of maybe Flicker, not sure yet.

I've only used Photobucket and have paid the "anti-pop up fee" which is modest, but adds no storage (sure runs faster without my anti-virus, anti-popup software fighting the Photobucket free account spam-o-matic generator). I've got 100s of photos on PB, and have posted the majority of them, so it'll suck major rocks if all of those links break wherever I've posted them.

Yeah, the links worry me a bit because it has the word 'templink' in it.  I wonder if it goes away after some period of time?

How are people linking pics from photobucket that no longer works? I just checked my pics on various forums and they all still work.

I dunno man..  seems selective.  Like if your account has excessive linkage they can tell?

They are doing it in stages.  Some guys were ok yesterday and not today.  I suspect tomorrow others will be affected.  It's going site-wide, so I suspect everyone will get hit at some point.  Maybe not, maybe it's only the more active users?  Who knows, but with the shenanigans they just pulled, what's to stop them from pulling the rug out from anyone else anytime in the future.
