I will probably be adding a filter to turn photobucket images into blank squares or something because yikes

They are in for a shock if they think they'll get a penny out of anyone. Also, my images still work for some dumb reason?

Now is a good time to move them somewhere else, obviously.

Also if you're curious the "P500" plan is $40/month or $400/year. For image hosting.

It's so dumb it isn't even funny, it's just pitiful.

Eh, I need to find a better image hosting service anyway.

Maybe now's a good time to join Instagram or something. I dunno, what's the Jul socially accepted image hosting site thing? I don't know what y'all use, but that's 'cause I never asked before.

Edit: I'll stop contributing to the problem as soon as I can.

I've recently saved all my pics from Photobucket (which I already stopped using anyway) and closed the account like a week ago. It was a productive day.

On a side note, wow, userbars. I remember when those were the big fad right before the "forum death" event

I honestly haven't thought about userbars or photobucket in years.

The nostalgia is flowing like wine today.

BMF did A Cool so now I only need to worry if rustedlogic goes away.

All my layouts now rely on our host itself, basically!

It's nice.

Maybe we should all migrate back to imageshack, there's no way that host would ever cause anybody grief.

Fair warning, if imgur picks up a ton of hotlinking towards a site, it may block that site. Happened with MetConst, though it was resolved by simply messaging somebody at imgur and requesting an unblock.

I thought the $399 premium price was a crazy joke...

but no, it's real. I have no words for that. lmfao

I migrated over to imgur for now. Only downside to imgur is how it jumbles up the file names and organizing is kind of a pain.

Imageshack really takes me back, it was the first site I ever used for uploading images to share with others. I never really liked Photobucket for whatever reason, so I guess that kind of saved me from having to deal with this whole mess now. I currently use Postimage which is really reminiscent of how Imageshack once was.

Since I don't have my own hosting space, Imgur it is!

Will poke at this as quickly as my schedule allows.

I remember when this happened to Imageshack and now Photobucket is going the same direction. Externally linked images are fickle things, aren't they. There are dozens of other places though and if you can afford the money, I suppose you can still use Photobucket. Don't be surprised if they go that direction though, with hosting getting pretty expensive over time and space.

The biggest reason they would block external linking isn't space, it's bandwidth.

Businesses tend to get the worst side of pricing in regards to that.
