While I understand the "everybody is using our product for free", the way photobucket is going about this is going to destroy them. I give PB a year before it no longer exists.

For about $35-$45 per year anyone can have their own domain + hosting paid for, and have private email, a public or private website, plus host your own photos and whatever else you'd like to have available for sharing. Everything remains in your immediate control that way... you own and manage all content public and private. You eliminate all TPTB exploitation schemes too... Been doing it that way myself since Al Gore claimed to have invented the Internet... :-)

I have no problem uploading pictures to my own site NOW. The issue is the probably couple thousand images I managed to accumulate on PB over the last decade lol

Any major build threads or how-tos you found that are effected? I found some work arounds that might help.

Also, found this: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ifiaedg?hl=enm

Seems to be working nicely for the moment until PB tries to shut it down.

Thinking out loud, and me keeping in mind Im new here, and my opinion carries no weight..

I am a member of metal working forum, that has been around since 2004, the owner and admin, will not allow at any time anyone to post pictures hosted on any other medium. All images must be uploaded to the forums server, for this specific reason. Pics stay put.

Im the admin for a doctors private forum, and Ive carried that policy over and practice it as well. This is not one of those things anyone saw coming, but in the same breath, being free, no on can say they are surprised its happened.

Randomly, I quit using photobucket about 7 years back, only because of policy changes they made and lack of control of privacy.

Anymore, I dont post any images to hosting sites that are free. If I cant post to the forum server, I just dont post.

I just went thru something kind of opposite to Busted Knuckles scenario , another atv site I went to will only let you upload pics from a server or host , you can't upload from your computer , so I didn't load any pics and got called out for it --------- I think it should be as easy as possible for posters , as I'd bet there are a lot of good pics that are never seen because the poster gives up trying to figure it out , every body is not a wiz at it

While the images would be better protected, the issue is that hosted embedding has been around here since the site started, and to remove it now would cause some issues for members.

Just because you are new doesn't mean anything. All opinions carry weight regardless of time in!
