I get the square box but as far as I know, the photos still show up on the forums. Are you saying it will stop and the photos will disappear?

The photos will remain stored on the photobucket server (until the company goes down anyway), but no, the photos will not show up on the forums, and this is what is pissing off thousands of people on hundreds of forums (and that is just the ones who have noticed).

Nearly every thread with pictures on every forum will end up looking along the lines of this one - topic3164.html - where images stored on photobucket is referenced are replaced by the PB box. Not very handy for a pictorial build thread.
Our photo gallery is pretty ravaged as well .... topic5-20.html#p1274
And the pictorial how-to guides .... grab 'em before they all turn into something like this ... topic4768.html. (almost all will as almost all use PB hosted photos)

I edited this How-To Thread - post51362.html#p51362 - just now.

It is quite picture-heavy with 17 photos linked to images stored on my Photobuck account, but it took less then 5 minutes to update the thread so it points to the same images hosted on Flikr. So not too ardous a task.
All in all, including taking the pictures off photobucket, then uploading to Flickr and creating a new album and then editing the thread we are probably talking around 20 minutes.
The longest and slowest part of the task is pulling the images off Photobucket, so if you have the pictures saved locally (maybe on a apple Photostream folder?), then looking at halving that total time :s_thumbsup

I can understand if people don't want to bother to update their posts, which is fine, but it would be great if any "How-To's" were updated as they are a valuable resource for club members and RAV4 Owners in general and without the pictures, they will be hard to follow :(

I intend to apply a word censor to photobucket images at the end of the month in order to remove those massive square replacement pictures they have decided to provide instead of their users own pictures to make the threads as tidy as possible. the chances are by that time, no PB images will be viewable anyway unless someone has paid $400 for the privilege (in which case, that will be unfortunate in terms of their pictures still not viewable here)

Took a while, but I have removed every single image from my main photobucket account. so now there is not a single picture there :Y

Which means, of my 10GB allowance, I am now using ...... wait for it ........


7% :s_scratchhead

So with no files whatsoever, I am using 700MB of storage :s_scratchhead :s_scratchhead

Was on iPad but what do I need to do to? It just seems to copy a link instead of showing the photo.
