The end is nigh for any photobucket images on the site using img tags. No more 3rd party without monies.

Big issue at a bunch of other forums. :cry:

I second imgur. Photobucket is the worst website/software I have ever seen and I can't believe it is so popular

Photo bucket used to be very good back in the day. But they went down hill hard 4 or so years ago.

To ask a silly question, does that mean the clock is ticking on any photobucket-hosted pics that i've put on my build thread an on other threads around here?

I've switched to Google Photo recently, but earlier stuff would need to be manually replaced with Google Photo-linked photos if photobucket is about to throw its toys out of the cot.

And that's the main issue, photo's in older threads were the user is no longer about.

Wowsers. We've actively encourage people to use photobucket over the years, and now we're pretty screwed!

I have two separate photobucket accounts (one mainly car stuff, and one mainly audio).

There's no way in heck I'm spending $800/yr reactivate third-party hosting abilities for my pics via my two accounts.

These go back 12+ years too.

I'm gobsmacked - thousands upon thousands of OzFoz threads (and millions upon millions of threads on other forums across the internet) are now photo-less.

Oh FFS. I switched from imageshack to photobucket because they went paid, now photobucket do the same. I don't think I could be arsed uploading everything to a new hoster and fixing threads!

Imgur the suggested alternative then? Until they go paid too. :roll:

I dont think its not unfair to request a fee for the service of hosting images. They have to have a bazillion gigabytes of hardware space to host countless selfies and other such crap for people. Most of which probably is never used. It costs to buy the hardware. It costs to store the hardware. It costs to maintain the system and keep it running with competent staff. And with an operation as large as photobucjet. Its probably a very significant operating cost. Probably massive wharehouse full of servers and AC keeping it cool aswell.

And i have no problem with that. But when the fees are so much more than what would be expected as reasonable upkeep costs, given the number of users its spread across. Which means its clearly a cash grab. Then it is offensive.
