I actually had a paid photobucket account before the Massacre. I don't think I'll bother subscribing again, though. They seem very shifty.

It seems all my ATF pictures are back :) . That's nice but no, I won't use them anymore.
Unfortunately I cannot find DTF v.1 anymore. Maybe those pics are also back again :-\ .
Can someone check this and maybe send a link?

Oh, I accidentally removed the link from the top menu a few weeks ago! I'll put it back...

Those who paid the ransom must be quite frustrated right now. ::)

I'm a bit frustrated, and I'm sure many of you are, that we've invested time removing image links that would now be active if we hadn't bothered. Then again, they could just as easily pull the plug again.

Sadly, I erased most of my photos in my Photobucket account and stopped using it.
Keep The Magic Alive and Kicking! :-)

Question: if we happen across posts that still have broken Photobucket links, do you want us to contact the admin staff or posters to edit them? I still find some occasionally.

No, because historically posted photobucket images are showing again, right? If so, we might as well leave them be for now. I should remove the news item from the top of the forum.

He might be talking about deleted Photobucket links that haven't been replaced (i.e. the ones that say 'Photo not found-Click for Photos) (e.g. http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=4258.msg171306#msg171306)

Ah, my mistake. Sure, please flag them to the moderators and one of us will remove the dead link.

So Photobucket is now forceing those who go over an ex number of bandwith to pay, or otherwise they will blurr your photos and watermark them at the same time, Even if you exceeded the limit before they pulled off there previous stunt.

I get the same Email several times from them saying this. Thing is, i decided im not touching that website with a 10 foot stick.      I Do not care what they do with my photos, they dont derserve a cent from ANYONE after all the ******** they put us through

A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

In other news; Tinypic has closed down, causing quite a few new broken image links to appear across the forum (Since it was owned by PB, I figured I should post this here).
