Well, it's was a good free ride at the start. Then a frustrating, ad-ridden mess the last few years, and now a way over-priced service doomed to bankruptcy, IMO.

Like most free things, it was ultimately too good to be true.

That's why I'm hesitant to move again to another free service. Just not sure what I'm going to do.

I posted this in the Shout Box. It's a little dated (in that it still includes the Bucket), but lists some other available services. Gonna have to do something.

I deleted my account and told them what semi phallus shaped object they could shove where, sideways.

There are now so many useful threads here and all over the net that are without pictures because of their money grab, and they should be punished for that.

The page on which I clicked 'delete my account' well my adblocker stopped 58 ads, and the ads they ran when I had ad blocker disabled, would lockup my computer and made the site completely unusable.

Rot in hell and bankruptcy photobucket.

My avatar pic still shows up in 'my stuff.

I take it that we are unable to retrieve/download our Pbucket pictures?

Tilesetter Disclaimer: I didn't do it...

Time is money, but hey Pbucket. Ain't no way....

I got the photbuckt app on my phone. As of right now I'm still able to download to my phone. I found the site imgur for photo hosting.So far it has worked to put up a couple of photos here. However I can't figure out how to use the link and make my signature pic show.

It does really suck what they have been doing lately, but I've been paying $2.99/month for the last couple of years to upgrade to 30gb of storage (you only get 2gb initially for free) and I have not had issues with the ads since doing so. I use photobucket for many different things so it's worth it for me, but I can definitely understand the frustration for those that don't.

It does suck that it is probably another few nails in the coffin for regular forums and another step towards everything being on Facebook. Hopefully not too much good info gets lost.

Plus I shudder at the amount of time it would take me to transfer everything over to a new host..

Good info Jason,

A happy ending there, I'll bet you have a lot on there.

Not only the time...

Which I haven't put much of into this, besides a call, so thanks all who have.

So. Lets review, shall we?

Subscribers are ok, but everyone else is being extorted for $400?

I feel bad for people who use websites to actually store their pictures, but I can't say I didn't see something like this coming.
You can't trust anybody with your stuff, and this is a fine example of why.

Fortunately for me, I only had 7 or 8 pictures on that site, and they were just copies of pictures I had stored on my computer anyway.
I only opened an account on that stupid site because I needed hosting for this site.
All the other forum sites I'm a member of allow direct uploads to the forums, so that's how I'd been rolling.

My dad likes to tell a story/joke about a guy in a bar that would always choose a quarter over a dollar if it was offered to him.
They guy gets a reputation for being the fool that doesn't understand the value of money.
Over and over, he gets offered a choice between a quarter and a dollar... and he always chooses the quarter.
After several hundred times he's seen this happen, the bartender asks the guy why he takes the quarter every time.
He replies, "Because if I take the dollar, the game is over."

I think some businesses could learn something from that guy. LOL
