Photobucket.com problems...BIG time!
« on: June 30, 2017, 11:54:43 AM »
Hi,
After more then 11 years as a happy user I, and a huge amount of internet users, today discovered that photobucket.com decided to take action against 3rd party hosting usage as they call it.  :o

This makes all my threads in different forums, including this one.,..... round the world, worthless cause all the pics are gone...  :'(

Photobucket.com demands a fee of $399 a year to let the pics be used in forums, homepages and similar.
How can we act to make photobucket reasonable again, suggests?
Otherwise this act is going to kill a lot of good and reliable forums connected to our hobby...  >:(

Hit'em where it hurts.  Stop using them.  I did over a year ago.

That's easier said then done, I´m afraid!  :(
I've got threads that I started years ago and they still are active and to start to edit the pics, if its even possible, it´s not an option!  :'(

I have a lot of PB photos in my posts as well.

What's a good alternative?
