[sticky post] Apparently Photobucket doesn't share any more

So apparently, if you want to use the 3rd party hosting cabaility of Photobucket (is there another reason to use Photobucket?), you now have to pay.

I'm afraid I'm not prepared to do that.

This means that all the old posts I have, with trillions of icons, wallpapers, demotivators, LOLcaps, and pretty much EVERYTHING will no longer display.

But hey, I don't have weeks to trawl through everything and put it all back - or use my own hosting and repair the links, ta very much.

And so it goes.

Yeah, photobucket are right asshats. I won't be surprised if they loose 90% of their users who had older paid accounts (that don't exist anymore) will loose third party hosting by the end of next year.

Yeah it's funny - why else would you use them? I mean cutting off ALL 3rd party hosting is just weird. Limit people to 10 pictures, linked, or something like that, but... *shrugs* People will just start to use their own cloud storage, I guess.

Using DreamWidth's image storage now for my banner and backgrounds (my LJ's now just a mirror site) and any time I want to put a photo in a post but yeah, my image blog is toast unless I want to spend a boatload of time re-uploading and -linking. Since my images were all amateur anyway, that falls into the category of "I don't think so."
