Photobucket users take note !
on: July 09, 2017, 09:03:46 AM
If you are a Photobucket user then take note:

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/06/30/photobucket_charging_400yr_3rdparty_pgs/

http://www.laurenwayne.com/2017/06/photobucket-phail-how-to-ruin-host-site.html

Currently we cache PB images for "up to" a month so many images on the site are still showing.

However when this expires then you are likely to see the now "infamous" image below that is appearing all over the net on forums and similar sites:



Because of this we ask that you do NOT use Photobucket images in your posts on the forum. Unless you have the $399 account at Photobucket then your images will eventually disappear and be replaced by the one above. They might be showing at the moment but this will change.

The forum has it's own image hosting and Photos Gallery area which exceeds PB in many respects. It is fast and secure, with images backup up instantly to secure cloud servers.  Images are delivered by CDN edge servers around the world so they also load pretty quickly wherever you are viewing them from. Links are also automatically generated for use on the forum.

You can sign up for the Photos Gallery HERE
