Photobucket

Postby Joe Baxter » 13 Sep 2017, 10:15

Is anyone still using Photobucket? Because I haven't been posting on here and on Mojo, I haven't used it for ages. It seems there have been ructions.

It is committing suicide with a bunch of policies (charging for linking mainly) that will kill it off overnight.

Yes, I am. But I'm fully paid up for at least 18 months.
You're better off now linking from https://ctrlq.org/images/ or https://postimages.org/ for low-level usage (me, I have several thousand 'third-party' links, so I just paid up).

Incidentally, anyone who wants to third-party their avatar or something and not pay charges, give me a shout and I'll put it on my account – I've got a lot of capacity.

Been a few nights since the policy change and it's still going.

I don't know it for a fact as I've never used it, and like everybody else never read them, but I read in several forums after photobucket decided to enforce their terms and conditions, that a ban on third-party linking is also in the those of Imgur, but not necessarily in those of the two I linked to.

I used to use it a lot, but with Dropbox and other cloud storage sites, who needs it.

Plus, they deleted my whole library like three years ago, so I said a big, "Fuck you," to them and never used them again.

My wife used to use Shutterfly (same thing) to make photo books for the grandparents on kids' birthdays.

I almost worked for them when they were ramping up, because they're close, but I would bet they've downsized a lot. When they do have job openings now, they're only for contract positions.

I've been playing about with both Flickr and Google (via Picasa).
I prefer Flickr so far.
