Arrrh,,, so ebay had to drop active content because Photobucket (markGreedberg) has just launched his own sales empire within the photobucket network to supply its images within its offerings,,,

Well the test worked so Photobucket is already obsolete for me, I will just be uploading my photos to my own website in future, would have done already, just wanted to keep my bullshit talk away from my business talk.

If your going to be paying for hosting photos you might want to consider www.freesites.com.au
$13 month for unlimited photos plus I think $60 per 2 years for a domain name
Host them on your own website, try there free demo
And this is an Aussie firm which sure beats sending money overseas for such services

I cannot offer an image of proof as such because I may get charged for it,,,

Dam shame,,,I have been using PB as a "cloud host to store images of important documents,,, like a record of purchases of bikes,,, serial numbers etc etc,,,

I think thats OK ...PB wants people to go to its PB site and hit you with ads  ..you see when you use PB and post on a forum PB does not
get to show pop up ads ....

so Mick you  and I still can put Photo on PB just can not put them on hear ...
And Please forgive me as I cant Spell for Shit ...

Yeah I thought the same thing when I first saw it many years ago
Your webpage would be free because you have to build it yourself from their various templates, the $13 is for the hosting
I find them easy enough to use, I built the VERi website through them as well as my own

No, not a scam. they are blocking external linking to PooBucket.

Hopefully more forums will become like Vital MX, and host any pics directly.

Problem is that it costs real money to hold this content. Poobucket were doing it to host ads and we savvied to it and got ad blockers.

Agreed, the price is coming down for storage, but there are still a lot of pics of no real value taking up room and for the forum to host them would be costly.

That will be $0.02 please.

I didn't get round to setting up an ad blocker but if they thought too many people were doing that it was because it's almost unusable with the amount of ads they hit you with, just been looking through my photos and it was hard to do anything with the amount of ads popping up.

Have over 1000 photos with them and along with everyone else our posts are going to look odd without all the photo references

I use flickr and as far as I know it's still free. I also have a PhotoBucket account, but I'll probably just let it wither on the vine in light of this latest development.

Flickr is a much more professional service in my opinion, but it can be a bit complicated to use. I haven't used it in a while, and I'm trying to upload a photo now to remind myself how it works.

I don't have access to reliable/affordable internet where I live though, so I'm about to give up...  >:(

As I understand it, PhotoBucket is making these changes to all users.

Flickr is a free hosting alternative, and is mentioned in one of the articles posted by Broad-Arrow. I just uploaded and posted this pic now.



You might have to have a Yahoo email account to use it, but that shouldn't present too much of an issue. I'm going to check out Imgur too.
