Photobucket Bus photos gone

Postby Skexis » Thu Jun 29, 2017 11:26 pm

Just a heads up that the photo hosting site I've used for the last 12 years, Photobucket, changed their t&c's which resulted in all my links breaking and I cbf reloading them all again.

That is strange - we have a lot of users with photos in photobucket and we have links to such photos and they are still working - an example is viewtopic.php?f=10&t=28821&p=313453#p313453

These were Venturatiger photos - I have been moving quite a few of his photos from photobucket to our photo gallery as I have been doing wit 2MSJ, Centralian and Windy Khong photos.
All of Venturatigers photos have gone which is a big loss to me as I still had hundreds of them to move..
I have looked at photos from the other three and they all still appear to be there - maybe they are disappearing progressively. I will need to keep an eye on this .
See how long this one will still be there

I have moved this to Australian Transport Discusion as it effects all users.
System Improver and Mr OC Benz have also been noted as having their photobucket photos lost.

It would appear the Photobucket has stopped "Third Party Hosting" on free accounts. The cheapest rate appears to be $US5.99/month to get the facility back - and you have to buy a minimum of 12 months.

The alternative would be to upload all the photos as attachments - which would be a bit of a pain.

I use the site www.imgur.com to upload photos, you don't even need to have an account to upload photos there.

I was also using a lot of old Windy Khong photos but they are now also gone so it is going to become harder to find some variety for the Photo Gallery.

At least I managed to capture 672 Windy photos before this happened.

About images hosted on Photobucket

Postby BanksfielderIdiot823 » Wed Jul 26, 2017 12:38 am

I'm a new user here, but I just want to get straight to it.

I'm sure some people will know about this already, but just in case, I want to give a heads up to anybody uploading images on the board, please be careful if your image is hosted on Photobucket.

A recent change to their conditions makes them have to pay or something like that to embed images onto a third party site like here. What is already happening is the image is replaced by a photobucket graphic, reading:

"PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ACCOUNT TO ENABLE 3RD PARTY HOSTING"

I'm not familiar yet with the whole photo uploading game (I'll get there later) and at least we can already upload an attachment here, but considering that we need to upload photos to, say, the photos thread obviously, or on a reply to explain or show something, I just felt the need to speak out on it in case it hasn't already been done before. If it has, sorry.
