    Default Photobucket

    Got an email from PHOTOBUCKET. To access MY Photos on their previous FREE site, they only want $1.10 a day (and I get a $10 coupon). They can kiss my ().()

    Most of my Choo Choo and Diecast photos were on that site. In my opinion, they broke their word, and stole from me. Another Dirt Bag business, that gets a tax break at our expense.

    Whenever you are on someone else's property, they will eventually charge you rent.

    Every photo sharing site will cost money as their costs outpace their pitiful advertising revenues.

    Get off off all of them!

    I've been paying PB for additional space for the last couple of years. It is not as if I was hitching a free ride. I do consider this to be theft of the images I already posted and paid for. You say "Get off all of them. " How does one do that?

    He may have been referring to those of us, including myself, that have been hitching a free ride. I'm still in the market for a paid hosting site.

    PB has always been :POOP:, but this...mm, this should get more peeps off of it, onto imgur. I use a mixture of Imgur and abusing Discord to host my images, allows hotlinking to direct links and no fees to use. I doubt Imgur's ever gonna need a full subscription service, either, as they're propped up by the social media side of the site and the ad revenue therein.

    For the threads that have been affected by this (since most can't be edited) use one of these browser plug-ins. They circumvent Photobucket's hosting restrictions and make all images visible again here in the forums. I use the Chrome one and it works just fine.
