Photobucket

Just venting, but photobucket has me so frustrated.
They have stopped allowing linking pictures direct to their site.
Means when you go view old threads on sites all you now see is the " This image has been blocked"

Suck everyone in then tell them to pay a horrendous amount of money to see the pics.
Can you just use the forum uploader?

I used to use imageshack "premium?" for around $40 a year - are they any better?

Working on a fix for this issue across the pond for ozdat.com (phpBB specific solution), happy to share it with you guys when its ready, if whoever is the IT guy for nzdatsun wants to PM me for more details.

But in the mean time, you can use some browser extensions that fix the issue for any website
Google Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... jjgj?hl=en
FireFox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... dl-updated

Because forum threads should have pics

Also, found this image hosting site via one of our members on ozdat from portugal: https://postimages.org
They offer free 3rd party image hosting and have been around since 2004.

Hey guys, I've been absent from the forum for a while and have come back to find that Photobucket now want $$ for their image hosting, and all their hosted images have added a stupidly large banner across them so you can't see the image properly!

Does anyone have any suggestions for image hosting?
