Photobucket user warning

No more third party hosting until you pay a ransom.
(I call it a ransom because the amount is so ridiculous I thought it was a scam!)
Internet bulletin boards will not show pix hosted by photobucket without payment.
Photobucket sucks.

Time to move online images to another hosting site...or simply post pix to your fb wall to share with friends

Photobucket User Warning
Hi All,

Photobucket have changed their terms of service and you now require a $399.99 USD/yr subscription (P500 account) to allow 3rd party sharing of photos (using the IMG code). If they haven't already THEY WILL replace all your shared images with a Photobucket message advising you need to upgrade to a P500 account (The actual image stored on your account will be safe).
As my photo links are currently broken and I will be removing all photos and closing my Photobucket account and finding another host. I would recommend others do the same


Quote:
Types of Accounts, Pricing and Limits

Visiting : There is no cost to visit the Site or to register as a Member.
Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min. The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time.
Ad-free Account : The Ad-free Account offers Members the ability to use the Site without seeing any third party banner advertisements when logged into your Ad-free Account (note, viewers of your images within Photobucket will see ads unless they, too, have Plus accounts and you will continue to see Photobucket offers and announcements). This account level is available for $2.49 / month, payable by the Member on a monthly recurring basis.
Plus Account : The Plus Account offers several paid options that may give the Paying Member more storage, bandwidth, 3rd party image hosting, image linking and/or other services as outlined below. Once and during such period of time in which you subscribe to and pay for a Plus Account, we will consider you a "Paying Member." Please note that all Plus Account subscriptions are billed annually at the commencement of the service. Photobucket may also offer a monthly billing option for its Plus Accounts (see terms and restrictions, below).
Available Plus Account Plans : Photobucket offers the following Plus Account Plans:
o Plus 50 Plan: 52 GB of Storage for $59.99 / Year. The Plus 50 Plan does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 100 Plan: 102 GB of Storage for $99.99 / Year. The Plus 100 Plan allows for unlimited image linking but does not allow 3rd party image hosting.

Time to finally move to imgur, I guess.

This is really unfortunate. There are probably millions of threads on various internet forums that are now going to be useless.

the option for myself is simple

Start an album on my fb wall for aquarium related stuff- including the new build.

Probably trillions. My other major hobby is cars, and I use write-ups on forums all the time to figure out how to fix something. And a write-up post is basically useless without pictures. This is gonna be a big problem

I read that and thought about your threads. For now, Tapatalk appears to be working?

What options are there out here for barely literate hacks like myself?

10 years worth of photos. Poof.
