Photo hosting
« on: January 20, 2018, 06:04:44 PM »
 So we can avoid the photobucket black box  issue . Anyone have free  hosting site that they are happy with  ?
Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

right now photobucket worked yesterday and the image is still there on the post a picture topic. Also  my photobucket hosting never went away on the 428CJ forum. Only on the SAAC forum. Here is a pic I just posted. I wonder if they will shut it down again?

I'm testing this now.    When PB had the $399 fiasco some months ago, I couldn't sign in and couldn't access my pictures.   Now, for whatever
reason, I'm able to sign in and access my pics.   So, as a test, I picked this picture (screen shot shown) but any url 'copy' doesn't seem to
work.   Maybe on on the wrong page.    Shelbymann1970,  what did you do to get your picture shown here, ie, where do I go from here?

Photobucket could have been laughing all the way to the bank with a $29 or $39 per year fee.

It was obviously a disaster as they came back asking for $119 instead of $399. Still too high and most users have already  sworn them off. Even using their site has been miserable for some time.

Good lesson on how to NOT transition your free site to a paid service site.

Photo bucket did screw up ....... all my saved photos are  still there and will be backed up to safe place  they will never get a nickle  from me after that fiasco .


at this point they block me from hot linking the 12000 photos

I don't know if it is all the spam on the site or what, but I can hardly get my pictures to even come up on screen.

I tried to buy a membership before the whole debacle and could never even get that information to go thru due to flaws or spam etc.
