« on: May 21, 2018, 06:11:40 PM »
I've just had an email from Photobucket who are now under new management.

"Hello,

All of your hosted images across the internet have been restored for a limited time under your Free Account.

We are also offering a new, competitive subscription package that includes:

Continued use of 3rd Party Image Hosting services
10GB of Storage
 No Advertisements
All of this for just $1.99 per month or an option of $19.99 per year. 

Hurry, last day for this offer!  Prices increase to $2.49 per month or $26.99 per year on May 22nd, 2018!
"

A bit late now but much cheaper than their previous offer.

Too late I'm afraid, they've shot their bolt as far as I'm concerned, I'll never trust them again.

I agree Andrew - I spent ages moving mine to another host (who doesn't charge anything - thank you friend if you see this!) and I won't be going back.

Took mine off and hosted them myself, a major effort to rewrite maybe a thousand links. Naturally won't be re-posting them there.  :loco:
