...but too late?

https://www.denverpost.com/2018/05/17/p ... ing-plans/

I've made a partial switch over to imgur - meaning I've posted new pics there instead of PB - but I never went through and resurrected photos in some of my favorite threads, like the JCA one and my studio & shop builds. It's a total PITA to reconnect pics when I'm not totally certain which one went where.

I might just pay the $1.99 for a month or two, which would make it easier to identify pics and then spend some time rebuilding things with another hosting service. I'm just having trouble trusting that imgur or some other site won't suddenly change the rules just as PB did last year.

Also painful to know that many other threads in many other forums will sit trashed because the posters won't or can't put up the $.

Them.


The site will surely still be completely bloated and damn near unusable due to the obnoxious ads

So they completely and utterly alienate their entire potential customer base by being greedy motherfuckers, and now they think people are going to come back and give them money? :lol: :facepalm:

Douchebags can go fuck themselves.

The sooner Photobucket disappears into the anals (pun intended) of cyberspace, the better.

Luckily, I only had about 60 pics on Photobucket when they went retard... never going back.

That's great news. So many forums have lost value because old threads are full of dead photobucket links. Any change there would be positive.

And my old links are working again!

Fuck 'em. Imgur is easier to use in every way and just a generally better service.

Wayne is right - old links have been restored. Prob short term, but its great being able to see my old studio build thread again.

Not gonna defend PB, but I totally get their need to charge something for their service. What they did was go from one extreme to another, and it was wrong, but saying "fuck them" and pretending another major service isn't going to do the same thing is lunacy. I need to bite the bullet and set up my own (paid) host for image posting. Then, it's "fuck all of 'em'"

... and yeah, I probably will pay the $20 to this new Photobucket management for a years worth of having my shit working again.

Is it a one time fee or one of those "auto renewal unless you jump through a thousand hoops to cancel" rip offs?

Not sure - it says $1.99/mo or $20/yr. I'm guessing it has auto-renewal.

I think I will pay $20 for the annual plan. I don't mind paying for hosting etc... Actually, I don't really expect these services to be free, but their $399 price was ridiculous. $20/yr is reasonable though. I liked photobucket before it went crazy. Good to see they're coming back to their senses.

:hi5:

Haven't paid my money yet, but planning to this week. I'm loving having my Studio and workshop threads back up, along with the JCA and related DIY threads I put together. Had several people asking me for pics of JCA mods during the year Photoshop went missing.

Like when I got buyer's remorse about the BlackStar ID:

or when I tested out Pablo's Aquavibe:


Image

or when my son texted me some bullshit story about why he needed condoms:

Image

or when he tried to eat all my amazing Italian meatballs:

Image

And my old Ford Ranger!!!

Image


Chinchillas!!!!!

The memories!! They're all back!! :love: :lol:

fwiw G-space all your photos are still displaying on your studio thread. I saw that thread yesterday thinking it was recent at first but then saw the date stamps. Great project btw! Loved all the photos.

@Bill - how could you leave out the Laney cabs, lap vomit, and the CEOwLP?

...and, gatdam - have I now had that guitar longer than you did? :eek:

Thanks Mort! I'm having a hard time believing those dates, too. Already have had some good times in that room, lots more to come. Really hoping at least one of my kids gets the bug and starts asking if he and his buddies can try jamming in there.

Oh yeah... I guess pain often comes with pleasure. Maybe some things are best left behind :lol:
