They kept posting a pop-up that said I was running out of SPACE.

Well......stupiEd me.......I thought that it meant I would not be able to add any more photos to my Photobucket site.


W R O N G !!!




What happened was...............................................................................

They confiscated all my posted pics!

Even worse......they won't let me re-post them in this Forum!

But......for $29.95 a year......they'll turn em back on for me.

LIVE............................AND.......................LEARN!

I got an e-mail from imageshack. They are restructuring their business model in that you now pay $1.00 a month for I think unlimited personal use instead of ads paying the upkeep. I deleted that e-mail as I use photobucket but now will have to think about switching.
MORE RESEARCH....AARGH!

Why would the confiscate your photos? Just to make you pay for your own photos? If that's the case grab a gun and err never mind.

To be fair, you are using their service to store there photos which takes up space in their servers, but $30 bucks is way to much. As for confiscating your photos...Wtf? Do you have them saved on your comp at least?

To be fairerer, they advertise it as a FREE service for me to store MY photos which THEY make a lot of money off me in advertising since nearly 250,000 people visit MY photobucket site, which I wouldn't have been mad about the $30 if they'da told me up front and that they'd lock my photos eventually cause it really WASN'T FREE which is why I have them stored in my computer, but would take me a month to go thru my build thread to repost all the pics using a different photo site!




W H E W !!!!!





But thanks for pointing that out.

250,000?! Wow, you are pretty popular on teh internetz. I can't even get like 100 views on youtube lol. I've only used 11% of my storage which is 174 photos, so with that math you have almost 2,000 photos, wow. I usually keep a folder in my pictures with all the photobucket stuff, and is probably a good idea for anyone wanting to post stuff on the web.

Mastuh, you should check out DG's build thread if you haven't already. it is epic, and well worthy of the 250,000 views in itself :)

Hopefully DG can get them straightened out.

Everything seems all normal with my Photobucket... :icon_confused: :dunno:

Must be because I'm not as "popular" ? lol. (All my pics are of some technical truck crap)
