Unhappy

Somehow I feel depressed... it is a more than a decade effort of being sharing ideas worldwide with especially edited photos on different web forums, that is going to be trashed by the insatiable need of money, of the photobucket people...

After crossing some letters with them, I only gained a promise of keeping "some" of my Photos viewables, until late 2018... then I will need to pay their new huge fee, in order to keep sharing them on the forums, when I were paying their old fee, which I paid for years...

I will stop paying them from now on. So my efforts will fade away, soon...

Somehow, I really lost the enthusiasm of keep sharing anything, anymore... you understand.

Loyale, I feel your pain.

I post images directly to the forum because of concerns with this type of thing.

I put anything I want to share on my Google and then link to it...
Never used PhotoBucket and never had a problem...
They are a business and want to make money...
Google makes lots of money with their supporting advertisers and hasn’t had to charge for basic storage space...
They even bumped my free storage space up from 10GB to 15GB over the years...
They must be doing something right as they are VERY profitable...

I've been a Google email account holder since they launched around 1997 and at that time someone had to send you an invite to open an email account, and today they are the biggest email provider with massive mail storage all for FREE.

I also moved from Dropbox to Google Drive, and find it much better.

Lately, also YouTube has blocked the Videos we upload, from being shared as embed content in these Forums ... ...

Hi

I can fully sympathise , I've also had the same type of problem as you - photos now not being shown. Now there is no way I can justify paying that sort of money so that I can have photos on forums covering the last 10- 15 years. What I do do is put a link to either my google drive , Microsoft one drive or dropbox accounts and if people comment about it I can send a link directly.
