Hi members. Don't know whether those if you using photobucket have received the same message...
It states that they have noticed that I mainly use photobucket to host/save photos displayed on forums like, fir example, e30clubsa.
So in order to continue using photobucket I have to register again and pay an amount...

I am only going to save all my photos on my computer harddrive before photobucket blocks my file...

Anyone who received this message...and suggestions as photos/pics currently displayed in our posts (those using photobucket) will not be visible anymore...

Everyone is getting this message sooner or later.

Every forum is filled with DIY's and other threads with no pics showing.

It seems that you will not lose your images according to their blog, where they say "...Photobucket users who elect not to subscribe to the Plus 500 plan are always able to access all of their photos and migrate to alternative solutions if they so desire..."

Most of the images which was previously posted via photobucket will now be unavailable die to their new structure.
The pics which will now be posted will have to be posted via an alternative platform which allows free 3rd party image hosting.
There is a few other alternatives but you would need to check which one suits you.

Thanks! Thats makes a lot more sense, but still sucks that a person now cant see those pics anymore.

There seems to be a fix for the Photobucket problem. Please try installing this Chrome extension and see if that helps. I can see all my media after installing this.
