Photobucket mended?

Postby Daedalus » Thursday June 7th, 2018 4:15pm

I recently noticed some old Photobucket images reappearing in the Xmas Exchange threads. (I had provided Imgur alternates but left in the old links.) So I'm posting one of my old Photobucket images as confirmation:

I wonder why Photobucket changed heart. My guess is the work-around apps made their pay scheme untenable. So our images are back . . . at least for now.

Don't know about photobucket.

Did you create that picture? That's pretty sweet.

A bunch of the images at the Inn are posted through Photobucket, a free file-sharing site. To the Internet's chagrin, after many years they decided to halt free sharing on websites, including the Inn. Several months later, our images are suddenly available again.

The image I posted is from the Hero Quest Marvel Winter Special.

For me the trust is gone.
I also doubt flickr since that happened.
Could we add a TB to yeoldeinn and host our pictures ourselves? What would it cost?

So what...? It's still a subscription service, but all old images are free?

basically, yes, because they promised a service for free at the time and the new CEO does not want to break these old "contracts" in retrospect, which was what they did.
that's how i've always seen it, no matter what was in the sign-in form back in the day. they broke trust no matter if they were in their rights to do what they did.

thinking about this, it could all be a ruse to gaud people into paying up and thus collect some extra money urgently needed and then build up on a new oh-that-guy-is-awesome cult like it's been a weird trend over the last few years in the business world.

This gives me an excuse to go through the entire forum again, board by board, thread by thread, to see what I missed the first time round.
I love this place :D
