Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hello,

Photobucket.com has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20 images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other third party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Photobucket Terms of Use http://photobucket.com/terms

Thank you

Community Support

Re: Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

I got this message from them a few weeks ago. They want something like $400-500 a year just to be able to host images.....no thanks! And photobucket serves no other purpose for me. The ads and pop ups on their page were getting ridiculous anyway, there goes ad revenue from me. And I'm sure many others are the same.

For those looking for another hosting platform, Imgur works well. I believe with it, you have a certain number you can put up before new images start replacing the old ones, but by the time that happens, the old thread would be dead anyway.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

There is also no limit on the number of attachments you can have in threads here on the site, so feel free to upload as much as you like

is it still the case that only logged-in FiN members can see attachments?
(just in case someone expects them to work hotLinked elsewhere...)

Good!!! Photobucket sucks. Imgur is my personal go to if any photo bucket people are looking for a new, user friendly host.
