Photobucket images - not for forum use

Recently the image hosting service Photobucket changed their terms of use for account holders and no longer allow embedded images to be displayed on forums. As a result the forum had many threads lose their photo documentation.

Moving forward we will disallow links to Photobucket and ask that you store your images with the posted text that they were intended to augment, here on the forum.

Forum members can store images posts and threads using the attachment option found in the advanced reply editor or in photo albums set up in individual profiles. There is no cost to store images here and this will ensure that your content is not diminished by an image hosting service changing their minds about how your content is handled. Thanks for understanding.

I have heard lots of complaints about the service. I'm glad I never used it.

Unfortunately, I have almost 1000 images stored on photobucket. Then I found out I could not download the images either. None, zippo. I called them and asked whats the point of your service if I can't download them? I think many outraged customers made them change their policy. Then they said you could download once but not at full resolution. Apparently the real issue is their business model is obsolete. With the advent of the cloud, Google drive etc, a lot less people need only a photo hosting site.

Count on this service being gone in the next six months... Get what you have on this service back on your own equipment - or it will be lost forever.

Evolution takes it's toll to business that do not have a market anymore.

I'm not very happy about the whole PB garbage!!!

If I repost pics in my mods thread, can the awesome keepers of the forum maybe move the new posts so they are the second though x posts of the thread??? I think I have all my mods pics saved again.

It may be. I just logged into my account and the popup saying they will no longer support third party hosting for free has been taken down. Mayhap enough people raised a ruction to make PB rethink their decision (I know I politely told them to stuff it).
