Photobucket Third Party Hosting

Post by danp3man » Sun Jul 16, 2017 2:34 am

Not sure I understand what's going on with Photobucket and their "update to third party hosting" deal. Is this something the person posting has to do so their pictures can be seen, or something I have to take action on (i.e., pay Photobucket for the privilege of viewing the posted pictures!)? Either way, it kind of sucks that I can't view so many pictures fellow forum members have/are posting.

I just went back and looked at some of my old posts and low and behold, there was the "Please Update Your Account blah blah blah" message where my pictures should be, so I'm assuming I have to update my Photobucket account somehow so my pictures can be shared. Is this correct? I'll log on to Photobucket and see what is required here, but I agree, an interesting business decision by Photobucket- great way to piss off a bunch of people who have been fans of their service up til now! :squint: >:( :wtf:

there's a thread on this in the Misc section.

most people are switching to another service...
