This will negatively impact forums everywhere. They think people will pay $400 per year to allow their photos to be viewed by 3rd party hosts, what a fricking joke.

I have a bunch of photos on there from years ago, is it too late to save them off there without paying?
Photobucket used to be good but they got real shitty. Now I think of it like AOL. No need for it. Who the heck is paying money in 2017 to store pictures?? Just go away Photobucket.

I had an account since '06 and deleted it last night. Lots of people used Photobucket and their change broke all the links to the photos and sites like forums. Anyone who posted photos on this site with photobucket will now have to pay $400 for them to still work or transfer the photos to another site and redo all the links. It's going to have a bad impact on forums everywhere.

I don't care about forums or breaking links, just hoping some photos are still there because that might be the only copies left of them.

Now they force anybody who has there storage to get there wallet out. This should be illegal. Point being. It was stored there for no money before under there terms. They should only charge for any storage that is used moving forward. Old data should have no charges & be accessible...
This is literally extortion. They have you exactly where they want you.
Once again a perfect example of

End of the day it's their storage and they can do whatever they want with it. No guarantees with this stuff, they could just as easily shut their whole thing down. I won't be buying my pictures back though, they can have them I guess, meh. Lesson learned.

I know this is an old thread but maybe someone will be able to answer.

There are a lot of topics or posts where I cant see pictures and I get the message that says its from photbucket:

"Please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting"

Why do I need to update my account to see pictures other people are posting? Also how do you do that Ive got a photbucket account and am no where near my storage capacity and Im not sure how it can relate to a forum for viewing others pictures anyway? Anyone have any information on how I can see these photos?

The ones that posted the pictures need to update their account and start paying for it. You can't do anything to see those pictures. It's only tot do with the pictures you would post from Photobucket.
