Change of Policy???

Appears Photobucket has either responded to pressure from users, or forgot to turn the switch off on embedding images....

Well, don't know about anyone else, but I still see the "update your account blah blah" icon where an image would be in all the threads I've looked through lately.

Are you seeing something different, Hack?

Above pic was embedded from my photobucket account. I checked a couple of old threads and the pics are all back on them.

Weird???

I got an email from Photobucket 3 weeks ago that stated
WE NOTICED THAT YOU HAVE BEEN USING
PHOTOBUCKET FOR 3RD PARTY HOSTING*


* this is what you do when you imbed a pic in another site like Jeep Forum. The email went on to say I should upgrade to a "Plus 500" account which of course has some charge.

I've seen other posts on this forum that had pics at one time, but now only show the Photobucket icon for 3rd party hosting.

Well, this is weird. I checked a bunch of my old threads where the images had all been replaced with the PB (update your account image), and the original images were back.

I really hope they did change their policy, because not being able to see pics on a lot of different historic posts was a real bummer.

The easy way to avoid future photo hosting problems is to upload pics directly to JF. That way they will always be here, as long as JF is still here.

Btw, the OP's pic shows up on my phone, but not on my computer. Not sure what that's all about.

IIRC pics are getting blocked based on bandwidth used. probably blocking high use websites at this point and the forum app accesses photobucket differently than the full site/mobile site and hasn't been blocked yet.
