    You're reached your free-account bandwidth limit for the month. Wait until tomorrow and see what happens.

    According to PC Magazine they've changed their policies and will require $400 a year for 3rd party hosting privileges.

    Photobucket and $399 a year? LMAO!!!

    Holding the 'Net hostage...a sure way to curry favor...NOT!

    Postage Stamp Chat Board & Stamp Bulletin Board Forum • View topic - GB Illustrated Special Event Covers & Postmarks

    LOOK at what the stamp collecting forum above has been turned into thanks to Photopbucket's greedy, unannounced ransom demands! What, have they been taken over by former Adobe executives? lol

    NOBODY likes a MASSIVE price jack-up with ZERO announcement ahead of time!

    Photobucket...what? Six months before they're bankrupt?

    Yeah other sites I'm on reported this and it sounds utterly mindblowingly stupid. Either someone high-up pushed this through because they don't know anything; or its a means to an end to shut it down by making it so unpopular that everyone leaves so they can close it without issue.

    PBucket has kind of floundered for years now and its interface became more and more unprofessional in how they displayed ads. Plus I've found its interface very laggy in the last few years when uploading or doing anything. I suspect that its death is soon to come unless they have a huge policy reversal.

    Charging is one thing, but hundreds of £/$ is nuts.

    Or just start your own PB clone site. You can buy the software that will set it up, plus the hosting, for the same money.

    Perhaps we here at TPF can pool our resources (as well as minimal funds each) and start a PB clone site of our own. I'm in. Who else?
