I agree with Andy, it's the loss of the links. Countless threads that were chock full of information and were available to everyone are now made worthless in one fell swoop by the greedy scum suckers at the Photobucket Site.

I knew this day would happen sometime. Now it has. I am done with all internet forums. It has been a nice experience till now. Thanks all and good-bye!




TR6Ray -

Now how come the slimy tactics of ONE photo-Hosting site is a reason to be "done with all internet forums"? I mean, there ARE reasons to just drop the internet; on balance it can be as much of a useless time waster as it is a useful communication tool, but I wouldn't think that losing some photo links would be one of the reasons to drop it?

I've got many hundreds of photos of bikes, work-in-progress, travelogues, dogs, etc on PhotoBucket, and every one of them was loaded there so I could share it on an internet forum somewhere, so there are many hundred dead links now on BritBike and other sites I inhabit.

But I can just use a different site now, move forward, keep on posting pics, and away we go .... ! Now if SmugMug does us this way, I might have had enough ... !!

Well you get what you pay for.
Running massive servers full of images that are continually downloaded to places like this forum for free costs money.
They recoup that from selling your images and some data to ad companies .
I would guess that Farce book has probably eaten into their profits quite a bit.
There is o suck thing as a free lunch and that applies just as much to the web as to your local diner .
I have no problems with the bucket either but Drop box has done similar.
They froze my account unless they got money for extra storage

Hi, I just joined and used Postimage ... it is much easier to use than Photo bucket, works great, and is totally free?

Yes this sucks. Mine were still here yesterday. Get an upgraded membership and post images directly here. Much simpler. That will have saved my most recent image posts. Doesn't help with the dead links. Only things I have on chuckbucket are images I've linked to.

It looks that PB is making their restrictions in waves. I just got hit with their ransom post yesterday. Won't be paying the $399 fee either. It's the loss of the links that hurts. Countless threads that were chock full of information and were available to everyone are now made worthless in one fell swoop by Photobucket. No advance warning either. Maybe all for the better. Their site and my images were always very difficult to get to load.

I'm giving postimage a try.
