Maybe this already got posted somewhere but thought I would post it here since I just got the notice. Obviously if you look at a lot of guys signatures there are a ton of Photobucket error messages. Well today I got an email from them stating the only way their service can still be used for "third party hosting" is to upgrade to a $400/year account.

Chris, it could be this was the plan all along, to build up a user base that now relies on Photobucket for image sharing, then "monetize" the site.

I haven't been over there in awhile but, if this is accurate, my guess is they'll see a whole lot of subscribers tune out.

I'm done as well. Between the constant pop up ads and now this, its crazy. I can just use my own company's website to host any images I want to use. I can still access all of my images but I am about to delete them all and close the account.

Chris, I posted this on my thread with pictures and results from Lavon in the Clubs section.

For those of you that got screwed by Photobucket who took a free service and decided to try and charge us 400 bucks a year to post photos here on TFF, we have found an alternative! And it's free! Thank you to

We've always used www.flickr.com. Never used Photobucket.

I started having hosting problems a few weeks ago. Just for fun I just tried to log into Photobucket and was able to do so. The only problem is my computer got loaded up with ads and out of the kindness of Photobuckets heart they offered me a pop up ad allowing me go ad free for $2.49 a month. roflmao

Probably plenty of suckers out there paying them too.

You can still get your pictures from Photobucket if you need them. They just will not host them unless you pay.

Yup another tech company is gonna bite the dust. Too many others that are still free and $400 a year is ludicrous

I only had 5 pictures in my account. I only used it for my sig file on here. Downloaded and shut the account down. Posted an update to my sig that day. Time is elapsimg, I may be off by a month, but my prediction still stands:

...and down goes PhotoBucket with the new Terms of Service... I predict they will be out of business or begging for forgiveness inside a month. 6/30/2017
