Photobucket now wants $399 a year for third party hosting
« on: June 30, 2017, 11:50:40 PM »
I saw this on another site. Photobucket is breaking image links and demanding users to pay $399 for third party hosting. I've checked a couple of my old threads and so far so good for me. However, I did notice Rollguy's signature has his pics blocked by Photobucket. I'm downloading all the pics I have on Photobucket in case they lock me out. I have pics all over the net and it would be next to impossible to fix the threads I have linked pics from  Photobucket.

Just for the record. At the den you do not need a third party service. Just hit attachments and other options button and choose your photo. That button is right below the box you type your message in.

Wow, I have like 400 photos hosted on Photobucket. I hope they don't do this to me!

Found this article in today's Denver Post about Photobucket and their new policy plus all the backlash they've taken:
