I've noticed lots of threads on here now have broken Photobucket links.

Seems to be a common problem on various forums too. Looks like Photobucket have changed their T&Cs and part of that involves no more 3rd party linking (i.e. to forums) without a paid subscription.

Time to find another photo host I think... :thumbdown:

Use the download album links (it takes a while) then upload to a different location.

They gradualy started to block links to users pictures. Mine were fine until two days ago. Now I am blocked too as you can see from my avatar. Soon all might be blocked as thay changed their Terms of Service sneaky overnight and demanding $400 per year from any user to continue using them. This is extortion. I would be happy to pay $40 or $50 per year, but this much no way. For $40 per year I can bring my own site up with 25GB of space...

I used to have a website too but took it down to redo it. I never did but used the hosting to store images. I may go back to doing that.

Well my links to PB are still working, but guess it'll be a matter of time until they show up as broken links.

Guess it's time to look at transferring them to a different hosting site.

Wonder how many will stay with PB given the amount they want. Typical short-sighted bean counters will probably kill the site with this move.

Well that lasted, didn't it. 4 days later and all my links are now dead.

Will look into another 3rd party image hoster and at least try and redo my "how to's", but no promises on a timeline for when that might happen.

Blimey, so it does. Wonder how long for though 'til PB's tech people ensure it won't.

Hmm, I see my Maestro thread images have now gone. Guess I'll have to spend a lunchtime moving them elsewhere. Seems like a systematic removal process that photobucket are going through.

I noticed also that Stuball's brm thread and Cable guys vi track car thread have also lost pictures. Really annoying as I sometimes goes back to threads like these for ideas and info. :annoy:

The sample I've just done of mine using the hack R-25x posted about are still visible.

Guess it'll only be a matter of time though 'til they're not.

Big loss for the forum.

There will be folk who have posted How To`s, etc that will no longer be active making their hard work all but useless.

Greed always ruins a good thing! :bye:
