    Default I hate photobucket

    From day one I have never liked the idea of putting my pictures for my posts on a service that I didn't control.

    If it's free then how do they make their money? How long will they be around? Perhaps they are doing the Internet thing where they get millions of subscribers so they can sell the company for 21 bazillion dollars to Apple, Amazon, or Microsoft. But then what are they going to do with your FREE service?

    Now if you upload your pictures to the site you have to worry about them disappearing if something should happen to me or my mood.

    I guess one good thing about using a service is, if you get pissed off at me or you can take your pictures with ya. If they're uploaded to the site they'll be there forever...

    There was one big advantage to using photobucket. After I pasted links, I could just copy and paste the post to another forum. Fast and easy

    Yep, that's actually what I did when I moved my build thread over here from another forum.

    I guess we all learned a lesson with storing pics. Glad I only used it for sharing, I'd hate to have pics completely lost if they decide to make you pay for access.

    The sad thing is, there are people that will pay the ransom for their pics

    Fortunately, I guess, you can still get to your pictures for free, you just can't see them anywhere else. So it's download, upload them somewhere else and change EVERY POST ON EVERY FORUM use ever used them on.

    any word on a new hosting site? I was hoping google drive would do 3rd party, but they don't. I wonder if that'll change in light of PhotoPhuckit's snafu
