Photobucket

I looked around real quick to see if anyone had addressed ideas to remedy this issue. It appears that photobucket has gotten greedy and I know a lot of people are not going to be willing to shell out the money to host their images. I have a whole build thread here dedicated to my truck with 100s of images but don't have the ability to go back and edit posts to update picture links or even just upload straight to compd as attachments.

What would be the best way to go about fixing this?

Thank you,
Kris

I've been using photobucket for years and years to host my images. I've never had them ask for money. I still use it on here every now and then.

Yea. They just now came out with this crap. I have seen quite a few people that have been hit with it. Something along the lines of "we have noticed that you are using your account for 3rd party hosting, if you want to 3rd party host like on a forum; you will need to upgrade to a "plus" account". Only for a low low fee of like 600 bucks a year!!!! ridiculous. What the hell else do people even use photobucket for?...

He's spot on....

All pics when you go to click them pops up 100% full and now using 3rd party host. I wasn't able to post parts I have for sale for this very reason!

I have my Willys build thread posted to 4 different forums, using photobucket for every single image so I didn't have to upload to individually to each site. Then I have multiple threads in those 4 forums plus 3 more where I have shared images to help other people with their builds, or get opinions on other smaller projects I was doing, etc. ALL uploaded with photobucket and all of them replaced with a "stock image" now.

It would take me forever to try to get every single link fixed in every single forum. Right now I was just brainstorming on how I could even think about tackling the job for at least my current build thread. CompD's post editing policy is a little bit of a hurdle if I was going to consider relinking every single image.

Yeah I'm having the issue now with all of mine saying something like we have noticed that you are using your account for 3rd party hosting.

I haven't used another site similar to photo bucket so I'm in need of suggestions on what site I should go to.

Looks like my image above has changed overnight. ^^^^^^

Screw 'em. That's the first time I've ever seen that.

I'll not be using their site anymore. The only reason to use their schidt it to host 3rd part images.

It is due to traffic across your profile. According to someone else on another forum. Most everyone I know is ditching photobucket for another app. I will be shortly.

The funny part is they provide the links to use as a 3rd party!

I stopped using their crap long ago. So much click bait and pop ups when I use it.

I have been using postimage.org for the last couple years. Got tired of the stupid computer killing adds on Photobucket.
