mine won't let me copy the links anymore
How can you put a video on here now??
Never used anything like that just upload from me desktop
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!
All of mine are affected Malc. The Gusbus threads, the type 4 build and Majors restoration thread & that's before any camping threads
Scandalous mate. Gutted for you!
And my old resto thread!
I'm not gonna lose hope in getting the pics back on here. I'm not on my laptop (we're on holiday) & will do some research later!
As with many other superb projects no doubt. Gutted for the ones which have been affected
Yep all I uploaded was from photobucket, utter Marmites
I have been using photo bucket for 10 years at least, not had an email etc asking for money or limiting my access
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
Photobucket just signed their own death warrant
My resto threads have all gone !!!!!!!!!!
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.
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.
They are just about as bad as the ransomeware hackers, they want boycotting they do!!!!
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?
