Exclamation PHOTOBUCKET 3RD PARTY IMAGE HOSTING

For any and all forum members I happened to see Photobucket is right now doing a special offer where 3rd party picture hosting is available at $1.99 a month or $19.99 a year. Considering what all I have on this forum I might be inclined to give them $20.00 if that means all my links update and the community can see them. DIYs would hands down be worth their weight in gold again!

If it was $20 for life, then I'd agree. $20 a year is still a ripoff IMO. I bet they are doing this deal to try to get more customers because all of their customers left when they did what they did with 3rd party hosting. If people hold out long enough, maybe it will go back to being free.

How does this work?

Does it allow only the subscriber to view all previously posted photos on this forum, or does it allow anyone to view only photos previously posted by the subscriber?

If you subscribe, can you then easily move you photos to a different hosting service?

the problem is having to deal with using the photobucket buggy, ad filled, glitchy website. If i'm gonna be paying them, i want a nice smooth innerface with out dealing with a hassle. but at $20 it might be worth it for people who have alot of imgs worth restoring or post alot of photos. i haven't posted any photos really of my new coupe here or even the wreck of milano due to the photobucket fiasco.

It would be a painful process if possible, but is there not a way to host all of the images, that are currently on photobucket, on the same server the rest of the forum information is hosted on? I don't really know how or where everything gets stored, but can the pictures not be stored in the same way?

EDIT: I've been going to random threads (including my own on here and A-L.com) and can see all of the photobucket hosted pictures. Why is that? Did photobucket possibly go back to allow free 3rd party hosting, and all of the pictures are now restored??

Looks like as of today they reversed their decision. No big announcement I could find. They must have realized how stupid of a move it was, unfortunately for them they have permanently lost a lot of revenue.

All my pictures that are on Photobucket I still have on my laptop. The problem I would run into without the 3rd party hosting links is what goes where. My build thread alone is probably a hundred or more pictures alone. I have no problem giving out my Photobucket user name for people to check out as none of my pictures are blocked/restricted or some even still valid. As discussed the issue is where on the forum especially for DIYs would a picture properly be placed so context is restored.

I am NOT surprised they would terminate the special offer.

Well Eric my posts in THIS forum are now showing my pictures as well. I'm not going to look a gift in the mouth! The fact that I can see my OWN build thread pictures alone makes me
