Testing

kathycf's picture

Is Photobucket still being stupid? I was just now checking my albums to see about downloading them and noticed that I can post some pictures and others not. Some of them have been given the "upgrade your account' crap treatment, even in my album.

I suppose the crap image is from the pictures I had previously posted here. Hmm. I'll guess I will find out when Photobucket updates itself. Stupid fricking Photobucket.

Update: Yes, Photobucket are still being jerks. I need to hire someone to "take care" of them...if you know what I mean... How handy, a candidate for the position has sent in his resume.

Glad I have a new image host that works, at least for now.

Damn, I have to get my screenshots and stuff off of PhotoBucket

Image site

The website I use is ImgBB. It seems pretty good and I have had it since mid-July. The only thing I don't like is their stupid "social media" BS about what pictures were liked, how many likes, who is following me and that sort of thing.

I had posted a blog entry sometime back in July about PhotoBucket's new (at the time) policies and that I would have to pay like $400.00 ( Shock ) per year to get the same functionality that I had enjoyed previously. meh. ImgBB provides the same service and it's free, so...yeah. I can't host videos there but that's not a big deal.

I posted this particular blog entry because JerkBucket had put the little posting snippets of code back up with each picture in my albums. I thought they had maybe changed their policies, but nope.

While this is true, please keep in mind that not only do we not have a way to filter out "NSFW" content - Dungeon Siege is rated T for teen. I don't want to have to be forced to put disclaimers on the site that we have "adult" content.


I know this is a teen site and would never post adult content on it!

Did you ever get those sorted out? I'm not suggesting that would be an alternative hosting site, but you were concerned that they might have been deleted (instead of just disconnected).

Changes in the laws mean that the hosting site has additional liability for the content, even if they don't control it. Techie may have to reconsider being the host for this board, too, just in case we write anything naughty.

so do I a hat and shoes is

What image host Kathy?

Yes Photo Bucket like a lot of other image hosting sites are not working for me either. I thought it might be the browser I use or that I was just stupid. There should be a place everyone can use to host things. I am also pissed that some of the social media sites have deleted my images as being porn. Naked is not porn! I was just jogging in one of them, I was just wearing hat and running shoes, So What! No one I saw in real life that day complained!

I hate image hosting sites and social media!!!
