Photobucket just kicked us in the junk.

Wow.
I cancelled my account with them because of this crap, but I didn't know we were using it to upload here.

Is this gonna kill G3GM?

I don't fully understand how all this works. I've used Photobucket once or twice...maybe have 3-4 photos stored on it. Otherwise, I'm attaching photos from my computer files on this site.

Me too. But a lot of my post photos from the past have disappeared. I'm guessing that somehow when we uploaded, something had to do with PB.

I suppose when Dan set it up years ago, he used PB for most of the graphics.

Appreciate it, Dan!

Can't believe Photobucket thinks it's good marketing to plaster their "Upgrade Now" bulletins all over a site like this to the point of disruption. One of the biggest reasons I never used them is all the pop-up ads I had to wade thru when on their site. Good riddance is all I can say...

Based on what I've seen in the last week, I'd say you can kiss PB goodbye shortly.
Lots and lots of REALLY mad people.

I only had about 75 pics there. I used it sporadically, mostly just to post stuff to forums.
Fortunately, nothing was there that I didn't have saved elsewhere.

Plenty of Amazon and Ebay sellers are in deep trouble and will probably have to pony up the $400 at least for a while.

I have a couple thousand and pay them $6/mo. I guess I'll start moving photos over to snapfish. My wife uses them for all her photos.
