Image hosting problems

Postby Mark Finley » Fri Jun 30, 2017 10:04 am

As you may notice, photobucket has totally lost their minds

For any of you (including me) that have used them for hosting images in the past, that means every image you've ever posted has been replaced by an ugly grey box begging me to upgrade their account. Sorry PB, not going to happen.

When you experience an old thread that has these ugly grey boxes and you are interested in seeing the actual picture, right click (or long press on a mobile device) and open the image in a new tab. That will let you see the image. I have no intention of trying to restore hundreds of old threads. I have better thing to do

As for now, I'm going to try Imgur for image hosting, if you know of something better, let me know

I have been slowly pulling all my images from PhotoBucket. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. It has sucked for years now, but this is the final straw; I believe we all should consider this camel to have fractured vertebrae...

I greatly prefer Imgur over Photobucket. It is really easy to use and there's no need to create an account.
