There's many superb pictorial on the forum with broken links to external stored photos - just rearranging your Photobucket files destroys the value of pictorial.


Quality and not quantity counts.

Well, I've Twelve Years uploading photos to PhotoBucket, arranged in Albums; the reason is that I share them not only here, but in various other websites and forums, as I've been active in different forums since 1999.

Reupload them to another photo hosting web site and rearrange all the thousands of links on thousands of posts in different forums, is not an option.

Back on the Photobucket's Subject, I found disrespectful from them, to allow an automated response done by "Robert the Robot" (as they call it), to answer my queries with off topic arguments. That makes me feel upset. So I already answered them, asking for a Human interaction.

I'll update here as somethin' new on the subject, occurs.

Kind Regards.

I still pay an annual fee to Photobucket, in order to let you all, see my Photos on my Posts / writeups.

If you find my posts / photos, useful; please hit the "Like" button on them.

I ask this as motivation to continue sharing my experience and photos with all you...

Kind Regards.

Arrow (Quotes from another Forum, in same subject)

Quote:
They stoped hosting 3rd party pictures so everyone who uses a free acount with them no longer has any pictures on any forum or web site and want $300-$400 to host them


Quote:
Ha - They must be getting desperate for funds

Wonder how long before it goes under completely? ( or untill someone buys them out )

I promise that I will save my Main Writeups, and share them in individual files that can be readed in offline mode; preserving their integrity and all the Photos, Animations, etc, in the Best way possible; in fact, I've been working in such thing since last year; however, meanwhile I could complete that task, I already paid for yet another Yearly subscription fee to Photobucksh¡t, once again, few days ago...

Kind Regards.

I have the same problem but mine has always been the free version. The only reason I set it up was for the 3rd party hosting, now its a bit pointless,
