Due to photobucket deciding to try and con people out of $400 a year to view their pictures on other site (3rd party) a lot of the threads with match results on here are pretty much ruined.
There are a lot of sites, blogs and forums which are affected by their greed. I was already paying to use their service but it was the middle tier and you can only put your pictures on other sites with their top tier package.

We can only hope they change their mind. With the amount of people complaining in their twitter etc it may happen but who knows. They put their pay to view system in place on the 1st July.

I have lots of affected pages on various forums, blogs and site. So angry but what can you do. I am not the only one by far. :rage :rage

It's a hosting site which everyone is using now https://imgur.com/
Make an account and away you go. Less ads than photoripoff and a faster site too :thumsup
Just a shame all reports with pictures hosting on photobucket are now ruined.
Not just on here all my blog reports are ruined and other posts on other forums are also ruined.
The amount of people affected by this is epic. :facepalm

Most of the Marsh results are affected. Was going to try to use my pics of the results as attachments but assume it will affect your costs for the forum.

No Dave we have unlimited package. I have loads to do but you cannot see which picture was where.
They have ruined millions of people's blogs and forum posts.
They thought they could get rich quick from holding people's pictures hostage but they were wrong.
I have a paid package for rolfslake but they have blocked that too, then yesterday they emailed me trying to offer me some kind of deal because I cancelled the payment, assholes, I won't be using them anymore. :evil
