Just created an imgur account. It's actually quite a bit smoother than Photobucket. This was a fucking dick move on Photobucket's part tho, they just pissed off half the internet in one swift move with no warning.

Fun while it lasted I suppose, 13 years of phorum photos soon to die...?!

$400 per year is hilarious. I would rather go back to ASCII art for free. :smashed:

I'm convinced they're going to undo the new policy any day now. I can't imagine the backlash they must be getting.

Anyway, I always felt tolerating the onslaught of offensive spam popups paid my rent. Damn happy they have competitors now that offer superior services for a reasonable amount of ad exposure.

I thought it was a joke with Photobucket. I went to Flickr for an experiment but I think I am going to transfer everything to Imgur. I can imagine if Photobucket doesn't change course it will ruin them. Maybe all the Cork Sniffer magazine readers will pony up the cash for a PB account but I can imagine people will leave in droves.

I don't get why they turned it all off. It is basically blackmail. They could have simply said that they no longer would allow future postings. Why screw up the entire internet?

I can't tell you how many amazing gutshots I've tried to open up on Google Image for a closer look at part values, and been directed to Fuckbucket, where I get that "give us $400 or you can't has" icon. :mad: :mad:
