Changed their policy: no more third party hosting. IOW, the hundreds of links I created are now busted.

Fuck them.

Yeah, I got zapped too. Shame. But gave me a fun weekend project to set up a diy image host.
It's "pea-can", man.

Well, to be fair, you could pay the annual ransom and then the links will work again.

But yeah, they really screwed the pooch on that one.

You are NOT getting a free service, that is what people don't realize.

The millions of people that use services like PhotoBucket provide a valuation for a company that basically sells vaporware. Without people coming to their site and using them (for no cash I might add) there is no PhotoBucket.

Assholes. They should get washed away by Irma.

They're just panicking because Instagram is eating their lunch.

Facebook is actually pretty good for image hosting. If you want to link to an image at a place like here and don't want everyone else to see it, just "share' it and set the privacy for that pic to "self only"

I do not like using Facebook as image hosts as they can track you by those images on other sites.

Pyrryhoy should right a script to retrieve the data and save it to his own server in a transparent manner and redirect all the img data so it shows up fine so we don't have to be bothered by this. It is his job. That's what we pay him for.

Why are we even having this conversation?

By You do you mean phrrrrymughterfucker?

I'm sure you did.

Not my fucking job to do pryshhros's job. He should get a better name, btw. We pay him upwards of $0 to take care of these situations. I think he should earn his salary.

Are you sure it's not your fucking job? Have you read the T&C of posting on this forum if your name/alias is Rob*?

You raise a good point. I'm not actually sure. I shall PM pryyhrow and ask him. If it is my fault, I will fix it.

INteresting add to this. I used a photocapture service, I don't remember the name, for years. All the sudden they (he really) decided to shut down. I offered to buy it. He quoted a price of $100K or something.

In case pyrrho actually does write such a script:

[img]"); DROP TABLE IF EXISTS images;--[/img]
