Photobucket ransoms our pictures

Post by Soulmonster on Thu Jun 29, 2017 6:03 pm

Photobucket has suddenly decided that I need to pay $399 to embed pictures on forums. Until I do that, every picture currently hosted on Photobucket has been replaced with an annoying placeholder. Well, I am NOT paying $399 to host pictures. It's a ridiculously steep price. I can also not download the pictures from their server until I pay, so I will just have to cross my fingers I can find backups of them, especially those pictures that are integral to the layout of the site, so I can use another hosting service.

This is really fucked up. What a thieving, scamming service.

I don't have time now, but I will start fixing things this afternoon. Sorry for the mess. I hate photobucket.

I think it's an interesting coincidence, that the other topic with a new post (just below this one at this point in time) is named "Back off bitch". XD

Hi guys,

Sorry for this taking some time. I haave been busy with other things and haven't been able to find the original pictures. I guess I will just have to redesign them.

I have moved some of the images to a new host and hidden many of the photobucket placeholders. So it is starting to get better. I still need to redesign our banner.
