Photo bucket issues

I have noticed I have lost my avatar and then checked some old posts and seen all off my photos are blocked, check my photo bucket account and all seems OK there.
I have seen a few other photos with the same error message from other posters, problem here or in photo bucket end???

It looks like its a photo bucket thing trying to make you pay....
go to www.photobucket.com/p500
The only other option is to use one of ours avatars or move all your images to our image hut..

I went to read the updated terms of service and its still free to a certain level.. Heaps of annoying pop ups though, and slower than constipation.

Types of Accounts, Pricing and Limits

Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min.

Dont have a problem yet but this is going to bugger up a lot of old posts if the great pics are missing. Damm they need their  arses sued.

The internet is alive with comment....  they actually want $us400 a year if you want to post on third party websites...

YEP, exactly, I have been reading a few blogs, a lot of unhappy punters world wide by the looks

from your link

•Available Plus Account Plans : Photobucket offers the following Plus Account Plans:

o Plus 50 Plan: 52 GB of Storage for $59.99 / Year.  The Plus 50 Plan does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting.   

o Plus 100 Plan: 102 GB of Storage for $99.99 / Year.  The Plus 100 Plan allows for unlimited image linking but does not allow 3rd party image hosting.   

o Plus 500 Plan: 500 GB of Storage and unlimited bandwidth for $399.99 / Year.  The Plus 500 Plan allows for unlimited image linking and unlimited 3rd party image hosting


looks like a minimum of $399.99 per annum for 3rd party hosting (if that is required) and to restore images/photos by the looks, the only reason I opened an account was to put photos on this forum.

So Alan,
1-do we need image linking or 3 party image hosting??
2-can we edit old posts to update photo/image links if we change hosting sites??

Im working on it

From here on in It would be good policy to write all your posts on your normal word processor.. Word, Docs whatever with the photo links included and then copy and past the whole thing here to post a new thread.

Important would be to store the original photos you posted in your thread not only in your third party provider but also on you computer (backed up  Roll Eyes and/or onto a portable hard-disk or other backup medium. The cost of a terrabyte backup unit is now so low its worth buying one and connecting it to your compi for permanent backups.

If anyone need photos reposted in a thread  with new links talk to me.. Only important threads please, because although not diffucult, if everyone wants to do it its going to be a Monmouth task.

Can I transfer my hundreds of pics on photobucket back to be saved on my computer? A lot of them are only saved on photo bucket, and I don't have copies.

Also, I understand that you can only upload through here on f&h if you are a donator (of money). So its not too dissimilar to what photo bucket are doing? Yes?

I don't donate money to f&h and am reluctant to. It might sound precious but I figure I (and most) donate plenty through my contributions which in turn make the site attractive to advertisers.

Looks like you guys may be "Photobuggered".  Roll Eyes
  Never ever trust getting something "for free", I did that once, and ended up paying maintenance for years n' years.  Grin Grin
Thank the Lord, I suffer from 'Technofear', can't post a pic' on here to save myself, but I do have all my pic's and other important info saved x 3 times. External backup drive, USB  sticks and CD's / DVD's.  Wink

And you say you suffer from 'Technofear" Some of us have no idea how to back up any of our data but then I suppose that is more 'technocantdo'  Smiley Smiley
