    Thinking about this. Photobucket used to attract customers by advertising free third party hosting and storage. Recently I have had a email from them saying my storage facility is full and I need to pay to access my account. In effect my photos are being held to ransom. Then the latest thing seems to be this third party hosting ban and demands for money. I think it is a bit of misleading selling by them, getting people to sign up all that time ago as a free hosting site and now asking for money. They should at least honour their promise or let me have access to my stored photos.

    I would imagine a lot of restoration threads and how to's are affected!

    I have been using photo bucket for 10 years at least, not had an email etc asking for money or limiting my access
     
  13. Everything from me was posted from Photobucket. I'm downloading all my stuff now (44% full) and then I'm shutting down my account. The ads and popups have already made the site effectively unusable anyway.

    The mobile app doesn't have any issues, the desktop version is hard work
     
  15. Photobucket just signed their own death warrant

    My resto threads have all gone !!!!!!!!!!
     
  17. Lots of posters on the carp fishing forums are up in arms about it as well. Seems genuine, people who know more than me saying it's not a scam.

    So,after holding people's photos to ransom, they expect you to pay a load of dosh to access them again. Wasn't there a virus recently that did this to the NHS? Seems photobucket have adopted the hackers business model.

    I'd say they are finished.

  18. Check your email spam or junk folder. Received my email from them at 5:30 this morning saying i needed to upgrade to P500 at $399/yr to continue to use 3rd party hosting.

    mine too, all the pics I've uploaded on here have been from photo bucket

    surely as the photos are your property, ou shouldn't be stopped from making them public from photo bucket?
