Update on Photobucket

Post by Ike on Sun Jul 23, 2017 8:27 am

So this morning Georg and I were looking around at what all still needs to be done.
There are a lot of things still messed up from photobucket. The main thing now is that we are no longer seeing their Hostage Image on everything.
They have managed to replace all of them with another code now that doesn't let you see anything at all.
Best thing we can do now is just tackle each one as we come to them, but most of them are in member threads.
Most noticeable is in the Nomination threads for HHR Of The Quarter. Since I only store pics from the winners on my computer for history, I cannot replace those pics.
All of the award threads have had the pics replaced (I think) with my history folders for the winners.
So now we have come down to deciding that the remaining pics that are missing we're not going to try to replace.

Example: These are the pic replacements photobucket put in in the Winter Nomination Thread.

Bill Hot Rod pics:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

BTW, that coding has the [ img ] and [ /img ]  tags on them, but as you can see, they have all been replaced with the same code.
That makes it impossible for Georg and I to identify what they were, especially on the member threads.
For now, we're just grateful that photobucket has removed their hostage pic from the forum.
The problem they have presented to us now is that the img coding they put in renders any pic in any thread effected as invisible.

Since photobucket is hell bend to anger all their members, we'll just have to wait and see what they do next.
For now, Georg and I will continue to look and correct anything we can, but member threads that are missing pics will have to be edited by the member and corrected as we don't know what those pics are.

I just had a thought so I went to look. In the forum, "Milestones and Casualties", we have a thread that is 6 pages long. All the pics are missing. I can replace mine, but not everyones.
And I went into edit mode on a few of them and they have the same coding.

Hopefully the next "Hostage situation" from photobucket won't be so bad.

Hmmm, I haven't tried to get into photobucket now in over 2 weeks. Wonder what would happen if I tried?

IDK  Ike ?   But here s the message I got tonite from the bucket:  Only kicker is I still can't log into the bucket.  Lost cause there.


WE NOTICED THAT YOU HAVE BEEN USING
PHOTOBUCKET FOR 3RD PARTY HOSTING*
PLEASE UPGRADE TO A PLUS 500 PLAN.

Our Terms of Service does not allow 3rd party hosting with your current account level.
UPGRADE NOW

*What is 3rd Party Hosting?

Photobucket defines 3rd party hosting as the action of embedding an image or photo onto another website. For example, using the img tag to embed or display a JPEG image from your Photobucket account on another website such as a forum, Etsy, eBay auction listings, a blog, etc. is definitively 3rd party hosting.

Why Photobucket?

Photobucket is the global destination for linking and 3rd party hosting. In Photobucket’s 14-year history, the Company amassed over 100 million registered users, over 15 billion images stored, 2 million daily uploads and 10 billion photos accessed monthly.

Easy to Use – Upload a photo from any device and copy the embed code with one click to host a photo with no development or technical knowledge required

Competitive, fixed pricing Offers the only unlimited 3rd party hosting plan (Commercial and Personal Use)
Are my pictures still safe?

Yes! All your photos are still available by logging into your Photobucket Account. Photobucket has only restricted the ability to view your photos on 3rd party sites.
Can I download my Photos?

Absolutely, at any time. It is an easy four step process:

Step 1. Login to your Photobucket Account

Step 2. Navigate to your library page

Step 3. View a photo and click the download button

Step 4. The picture will be saved to your computer

Yep, I got that email last night, just saw it this morning. It appears they want to run off all their members.
I was telling Georg Sunday that it appears to me that photobucket has changed ownership and this is their big plan to make money.
Yep, just logged in and it appears they have changed a lot of stuff. Well, it's starting to look like their 14 year history is going to be the end of their history.
I got in and can get around. The most noticeable change is their links box. All the sharing links have changed.
Well all I can say is I hope the greedy bastards are happy now. I've been using photobucket for nearly 10 years now and sharing images on forums for that entire time.

I hear ya Ike, I joined the 'bucket 1/28/10 so I could share photos, w/out using my own website.

I agree seems like new greedy owners. I'm done with them. I bet they lose a lot of members.

According to what I've been reading on search engines, photobucket has really made a lot of people mad. Our remarks here have been rather tame to some of the ones I've read.

Interesting, thanks for the 411, never thought to research that. They went about this arse backwards Imo.  Lesson I think they are gonna learn is, this is NOT how to line their pockets. I feel it's gonna have quite the opposite effect.

As far as I'm concerned, the 'bucket sleeps with the fishes'. bricks

I was out doing some research today and stumbled across this. Boy o boy are they ever trying to piss off the world.

Photobucket messes up Amazon, eBay and other sites after introducing charges for third-party hosting.

WOW!!, they are really rocking the net world with their new greediness.  Those are 2 serious players, + others. I expect things to get much worse for bucket, if it ever gets better.  The hole is getting Deeper.  

Thanks Ike..

"introducing charges for third-party hosting." I wouldn't call their new policy implementation technique an introduction, more like a steam roller hitting us.

I can only wonder how they are going to try to recover from this. They have angered so many people and big names companies. I can only see them as history after all this. Serves them right.

Couldn't find where or how to delete my PB account so I just deleted the 600+ pics I had there and blocked their emails. The desktop icon and link went into the trash.

Dan - when you logged into Photobucket you see a piture beside your plan on the upper right corner. Click on this picture / silhouette and you can choose settings. It oppens personal informations and you see several tabs. The last one is the account tab - klick on it and it opens your account settings. At the bottom you find the possibillity to delete your account.
I deleted my one today, after i found out they stopped supporting download of albums. I only can download single pictures and will not download 1700 + so I decided for me  what lost is lost. I am so upset about them and spent so many time on this, that i am really decided to end it up.

Thank you George, that was well hidden. Account deleted with a VERY clear explanation on why it was deleted.

Good job Billy. I would think that there have been many, many more former users doing the same thing.

Thanks Dan, & you too. I agree, I bet many others are dumping them as well. Maybe that is what PB wants, to get some paying customers in there. Something I had been pondering, since their implement strategy was so non-professional.

Hmmm, I didn't get any email from PB. Logged in just now with no problem. Except the pop up ads are maddening.

Will figure out what pics I want and I'll be done as well.

Lizzy - we already repaired and relinked your avatar and signature to our new storage otherwise you would see the problems they caused in here. Looking to some older posts you can see that they destroyed all.

Most noticeable right now are the old HHR of The Quarter threads. I relinked everythig in the winner threads, but just don't have the pics to do the others.
