If you have been hosting your photos on Photobucket like I have for the last 14 years, then you are in for a surprise. I have thousands of images hosted there and they are posted on this site along with my Geo Metro Forum. Out of the blue, every image (14 billion+) hosted there by millions of users are no longer allowed to be used on their forums , blogs, Ebay, Craigslist, and many other sites and have been replaced with this image.........

Going to the link allows you to upgrade your account to allow 3rd party hosting for a fee of $399.00 per year :bananaburn

So basically every image I posted here and on many other sites are gone. I have 3 Photobucket accounts so this makes things even worse. I understand this was a free image hosting site and all good things must come to an end, but you think they could have warned there millions of subscribers via E-mail of the coming changes.

$399?? WOW... what a hit. Maybe something a little more reasonable could have been tolerated, but for cripes sake, $399!! I seldom use Photobucket and have little stored there but what I do have they can keep. Nothing much seems to be free anymore.

I do see that they have a monthly option in the event you can't pony-up the $399 all at once. At $39.99 a month, for 12 months that come out to $479.98, so screw that as well. I'm going to try to move some of my pictures to tinypic.com. At least they're still a free service.....for now.

You can upload ppics right here on the site, so that is a plus. I need to fix all the broken images.
