    Well, that's terrible. I put a ton of work into uploading, naming, tagging and linking those images.

    Damn it.

    I quit Photobucket years ago but I'm still beyond baffled by this. Who in their right mind is going to pay $300-$400 just to embed their images on other sites? Has to be something I'm missing here.

    Unless this is their way of just waving the white flag...

    Businesses who have invested the time in uploading and linking to hundreds of images on the site.

    Spend the money on them, or spend the money doing all the work again somewhere else.

    From what I see around the interwebz, your sentiment is universally shared. At the moment at least, you're one of the temporarily lucky ones. It probably won't last long. Save your favorite shit homey

    Yeah I don't get it, you can link from imgur, tumblr, sites like this for free... not sure why someone would pay .. I'm sure big companies have there own servers to host pics on. I think photo bucket just wants out

    Whatever happened to emailing or texting photos?

    Are these sites really necessary for sharing photos?

    You are doing something the wrong way. IMGUR is fine. Use the link with .gif or .jpg

    There's just too much, and PhotoBucket has always been incredibly slow.

    I'm talking thousands of PhotoShops I've done over the years.

    It's a total jack move.

    And another fine reminder of the precarious nature of all this 'cloud' type shit.

    To quote Goodfellas:

    Shitshow deluxe. At least you have a little heads up now to save what you can.

    You don't use them to share pics with friends or family it's more for posting pics on sites like this . You can't share an emailed or texted pic to sherdog unless you host it someplace like imgur or tumblr

    Doesn't this site offer an album to post your own photos, which you can later retrieve for use?

    Yeah you can trust sherdog, this site would never just suddenly delete a bunch of old ...

    Photobucket has been irrelevant for years. Can't believe people are still using it. I was using Imageshack for a few years before they changed their site. PostImage still works.

    Is anyone able to comment on your pics on Imgur. I uploaded one and people start rating it? is there a way to make it public for hotlinks but not for ratings or comments

    Used to go on there looking for fap material and to fusk private accounts looking for some win. Last time i went on Photobucket they'd put a cap on picture resolution, and i can't fap to low res pics.

    RIP Faptobucket
