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

Why the ban?
If a member , like me , has paid for an advanced PB account why prohibit it?
Did they just irritate you & it's a tit for tat thing?

I ask because I have around 30,000 photos there and my PB pics post just fine on the other 6 forums I'm on and I'm not downloading & moving that amount of content.

Understand your point. The mods are not interested in photos working on another forum, just this one. The Photobucket photos that have stopped working are destroying this forum. So who can trust PB anymore? Glad you paid the big bucks to make your PB work but why would a forum trust PB? Even the posters that paid for their service may get another "fast one" by PB and photos disappear again.

Why would a forum trust PB?
Why would I trust a forum to handle my photos?

Seems like someone got pissed& took a " oh yeah, well we just won't permit your sites photos on our site" attitude.
Which is a bit juvenile but I suppose to be expected in this age..


Destroying the forum... that's a bit melodramatic

I cancelled my drop box account when they decided I could only share
my photos with other people on drop box.
I had some posts here in the forum that also lost their photos due to the new drop box policy.

Apparently it's a trend for previously free photo hosting cloud sites to move to
a fee based service.
I'm sure they're trying to make a profit and this new policy is aimed in that direction.
The ominous discussion was that some photo bucket members received unwanted and unauthorized charges on their credit cards so if you're a photo bucket user you need to keep a very close eye on your credit card statement.

I've placed a few photos on google drive and they seem to work but when
you're using a free cloud service it's always a gamble.

If you're wanting to share photos with other FRF members it's just as easy
to include them here as attachments or imbedded in the text.

If you're wanting to share these photos with the world at large then I don't
have a great suggestion other than google drive as one option.

Russell, try again.
The link works for me as posted.
It's 2 pages of photo bucket discussion.

If you can't get it to work you can go to the search box at the top of the
page and make sure the FRF has the dot in it.
Search for photobucket
The discussion I'm talking about is the top result of the search.
