My pictures are back?

Post by Craigallot » Sat Jun 23, 2018 6:20 am

Looking over old threads I posted, it seems not all of my pictures are broken anymore. Is this a temporary thing and are they just going to break again or has Photobucket changed its policies again?

They ousted their CEO and claim to be going back to their older model. That said, you should probably ditch them and go to Flickr to be safe, but you have some time before they nuke you again (hopefully).

I remember not being able to put Flickr images directly here on the forum. Did that change as well?

Not sure, ever since they cut my band width once in 2015 I changed to imgur and in late 2016 to Flickr so non-BW members could also take a better look at my stuff.
Barely bothered with replacing my older PB pics myself since most of them are far too outdated to merit keeping them around in my eyes.

I just realized I started using Brickshelf last I was here. It wasn't perfect 'cos you couldn't bulk upload afaik and sometimes it was pretty slow as well, but it might not be a bad alternative. I don't need to make heaps of pictures after all.

First I've heard about that. I've been using Flickr for the past year and it works like a dream. Possibly there was something before that that I'm not aware of, but it works great now.

They somehow stopped you from being able to directly display the image elsewhere, it was always just a link to the image on Flickr even if you put the [ img ] [ /img ] brackets around it. This was years ago though.
