Photobucket

PostPosted by Hoovie » Wed Jun 28, 2017 9:59 pm

People may have noticed that images posted by themselves or others have been replaced by a Square Photobucket image saying "3rd Party Hosting has been temporarily disabled"?

It would seem that Photobucket (PB) have decided that they don't want people to be sharing the photos they posted without paying now. So if you want to use the [IMG] tag (or [ResiZE] with a photo on PB, you need to pay $39.99 a month. A bit of a hike considering it has had no charge for the last 10+ years and this change introduced without warning a couple of weeks ago.

If you are not seeing this problem on your images either here or on other forums, be sure you will within a short time. Some of my images are showing, some are not.

There is nothing we can do on the forum to fix this as it is an external issue. Please also note that uploading pictures to the forum itself is NOT a solution. Our storage here is limited.

Ri ght now I don't know what the best alternative is, but you can be sure if you search on "photobucket 3rd party hosting" on the internet a lot of suggestions will be being discussed :s_howdy

My bucket account has not worked properly for months so they won't be getting a dime from me.
I thought they made thier money from the bombardment of adverts on the site ?

Is there another imaging hosting site ?

There are others around.

I have been getting more and more frustrated with them so certainly will not be upgrading my plan with them to allow this linking

That's disappointing as I don't plan to pay $39.99 a month !
Update...
Had a look on my account today and it says upto 10GB for free and I've only used 15% of my allowance so guess won't be getting charged anytime soon.
Then the options are ad free £9.99
10K of photos ..no ads ...£22.99
25k of photos...no ads ...£39.00
Past Rav4's owned......
1996 import 3 door RAV4 J type.

The key thing is not that people are running out of room (I have used 18% of 10GB) but 3rd party sharing is prohibited unless you give the theiving b*****ds $400 a year.
I would not pay them any money at all now and am looking at options (trying Flickr right now) and do not intend to upload a single new image to PB now and if most others are of a similar opinion, PB will be dead in 12 months and even if they do see the folly, they are a Dead Man Walking already as the relentless adverts and terrible website experience when uploading was bad enough. no linking allowed is the final nail in the coffin.
T
he vast majority of people use PB as a way to post pictures on forums and websites and just use the IMG tags and don't earn money from their pictures, so they will just use another service, it is that simple

Posting a pic hosted on Flickr...

ImageRevell_07076_VW-T1 Panel Van by David, on Flickr

I have shyed away from Flickr previously as I wasn't that keen on their ToS requiring you to have the label at the bottom. i.e. the
"https://flic.kr/p/V2uThMRevell_07076_VW-T1 Panel Van by David, on Flickr" but if that is needed to have a reliable hosting service, I'll give it a go :)

(Finding the interface a bit weird, but hopefully just as it is new as I was so familiar with Photobucket)

What are others looking to use?
