  1. Well as of today you'll now have to pay $399/yr for the priviledge. :mad: Untitled-1 copy.jpg

    I noticed that and wondered if we had turned a setting off on the forum :(

    what a PITA!
     
  3. I just resize and post direct from my computer ... Photobucket had already become a PITA with all the pop ups and adverts etc.

  4. All of my images have gone too :(

    I will look in to pricing or moving them when we're back home!

  5. oh no :(
     
  6. Looking at the costs, the $399 per year is for 500Gb storage, you can get 50Gb for (I think it said) $59.99 per year
     
  7. I had to stop using it anyway. It seemed to be too much of a pain and too slow.
     
  8. wow, it isn't even very good!

    I now use the tapatalk app and just post photos from my phone...no idea where they are stored and don't care
     
  9. That doesn't allow for 3rd party hosting or linking either though. The $99 a year one allows linking but not 3rd party hosting.
     
  10. Facebook it is then :)
     
  11. That's going to work well for them $40 a month for 500GB space as opposed to £6.99 a month for unlimited space from someone like 1&1 - let alone all the free webspace you get with most broadband providers that most people hardly ever use.

  13. Is this a scam
     
  14. Don't know. Sounds a bit like it. Ransom your piccies and not release until payed.

    That's how I do it since photobucket stole all my photos and demanded money for me to access them :mad:

    I upload them to FB in a private setting then copy the image address to my post on here via the square up there ^ :thumbsup:
