PSA: Photobucket

So…Photobucket has changed so that now you must enable 3rd party hosting in order to see embedded images that you have uploaded. And the only way to do that is to select the plan that costs $399.99 a year, which there is no chance on this planet that I would ever want to do.

So far as I can tell, it hasn’t bothered the banner for Wrap The Cloak of Night Around His Shoulders over on Ao3, but for all I know it may have for others. Is anyone having issues with seeing it (or the book cover if you go to just before the deleted scenes)? If they are replaced with that image for anybody, then I’ll come up with somewhere else to move them faster.

Aren't AO3 images uploaded to AO3? I'm probably remembering incorrectly. Anyhoo, I can still see the banner.

I can't believe they didn't give people notice. Sheesh.

I'm not having problems with your images, but I was looking for some Doctor Who icons earlier today, and I saw some users that posted their icons with Photobucket have the "Please upgrade your account to enable 3rd party hosting" error message.

I'd say to back any artwork you've made and/or any artwork received as gifts through Photobucket just in case.

Yeahhhhhh. I only occasionally use PB for posting infrequent images to DW these days. And now that DW has image hosting, that's all I need. I have decade-old posts on LJ with images in them, but I really don't care about those any longer.

I'm not paying $400 in order to display my measly megabyte of bandwidth. In fifteen or so years, I haven't even used 0.1 percent of my storage space. Ain't happening. I'm slowly saving the images I want to keep and just deleting the rest. I might keep the account on the off-chance they determine they made a mistake, but I'm not counting on that.
