I personally have not been hit by PB's new policy yet.  But I also haven't tried linking to anything new or existing there since seeing these messages.  

lox posted this URL up for another site: https://postimages.org/

I registered there and it was seamless.  Paly mentioned tinypic, but I also noticed they are owned by PB.

Bend over Mike PB are just lubing up.

I got a real email from Customer Services the other day. That was after I fired a big FU to them and got a reply from Robbie the Robot. These fuckers are sticking to their guns to see how many mugs they can find to pay their rip off price.

It's not the finding a new host site that is the problem it's all the fucked up posts that have been posted in the past that are now fucked up. Loads of us used PB, they really screwed up,the content of the forum, something we had to fight to keep only recently. All the collectors threads all the info the photos that made the threads what they are !

Tony, I don't disagree with any of that.  I was merely answering ghandi's question.  And I'm sure it's just a matter of time before they catch up with me and others.

All the stuff is still there, if someone clever enough can adjust the coding for the forum it will all magically reappear.....

I've just started using Imageshack - $19/year seems reasonable, does what PB does.

PB has also now nixed the download feature so you can't get your album(s) off either. Got the usual "we're investigating for you" email, which means, tough tits now get lost.

Google has a $1.99 solution as well which works for getting your albums off. I doubt PB are going to change their policy for now.

Tony, you have pictures of your collection on Flickr.  Is that not a good choice for image hosting?

Really clunky to use quickly. Finding the right code is a PIA especially if you are using an ipad.

Hey Chris, aren't you a lawyer?  So, that's just legaleze used on their site to cover their ass.  Read the terms of use on any site and you'll find much in the way of CYA language from just about every site out there.  
  
Difference being, they're running a typical disclaimer.  PhotoPhucket is blackmailing users or at the very least holding images as hostages for ransom and saying, "Give us $400 or go fuck yourself."

Friendly reminder: Keep your own damn copies of things that are important to you.  Memory is cheap. Buy it and use it.
