For anyone who cares, Photobucket has reversed it’s “extortion” business model and fired the CEO who banked on it.

I just found out when I looked at one of my old posts a few minutes ago. I probably won’t be using Photobucket for NEW hosting, but at least I won’t feel the need to replace the photos in my older communiques.

I won't be using their services again after the abrupt let down they pulled last time around...with the millions of people using the service for an avatar or whatever, you would think they could sell advertising and continue some free access for those that do not really need or use the subscription service. I wish them luck in trying to put humpty dumpty back together again... cool


Take care, Larryz

I wonder if all my old stuff is now gone. I've been using Imgur instead but I had a ton of stuff at Photobucket.

All my stuff is still there but only accessible by mobile phone, only because I stayed signed in during all the BS. I can export whatever is there to anywhere I need it to be.


Same old surprises, brand new cliches-

Years ago, PB was fast-n-easy to use, and then in recent years it became S L O W as a snail. That's when I abandoned using it. I'm surprised it's still around.

In order to fend off accusations of being a shill for Photobucket ( wink ), I have Imgured myself.
