96 posts in this topic

hi guys, 
i have just noticed looking at some of my threads, my pictures are gone, and a message where the picture should be telling me that i need to update or upgrade my account with photobucket to allow 3rd party sharing? WTF is this?

Same, my images on Botophucket are still there and are still showing on this forum, but that may not last for long.

An alternative is Imgbox, as I mentioned in a previous thread (were due to close down at the end of the month, but a new hosting partner has come to their rescue). It might be an idea that existing Botophucket users start to migrate there instead.....

From LTD083 in the general discussion thread...




Fyi Dean and others.
Absolute crock.
Taken from a thread on Ford Forums:

Photobucket updated their Terms of Service, effective June 20, 2017.

Most of us using a Photobucket account to display images on this (and other Forums) were probably using Free Accounts. There's even a sticky thread in this section showing how to do it (using PB as the example)

The new ToS now states "The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time."

To re-enable 3rd Party image hosting, you need to sign up to their highest package at $400 per year.

Looks like it'll cost $400 a year to allow third party image hosting on Photobucket. This change was made w/out announcement, apparently.  "Shock and awe" - typical of the Yanks. Hopefully they (photobucket) disappear up their own poo-holes.....there's gotta be an alternative.

I don't mean to be a smart arse but I wrote about this 18 months ago, it was bound to happen sooner or later. 'Dartosmobile' by 2redrovers appears to be intact using tapatalk, but SMIKXF's build photos are all down. My bottom lip is trembling and I'm going to shed a tear........

all my photos are gone, at 11% storage used. 

how can they pull this on users with no warning. i wonder if there are any big enough corporations that use it, that its affected that could get on board and fight them lol
