photobucket

well it looks like photobucket.com wants to commit suicide. like some of you, i use it to upload photos i take so i can show them on other sites such as this one. that in itself has always been free. now i get a notification that this will no longer be free, and the cost to upgrade my membership to be able to do this again is $400/yearly. that's $400. and until then, every photo there i've linked to another site is now blank. think i'll pass.

Tried photobucket but gave up after waiting for the ads to load. Can't see paying $400 for a service I wouldn't use for free.

I am still able to "image link" with my free account, but it appears this is about to change. For years Photobucket has been so ridiculously slow as to be pretty much useless, and I am curious as to what other freebie sites might be out there for sharing pics on this forum. Honestly, Photobucket has such poor performance that I just cannot imagine anyone paying five dollars for its use, let alone hundreds... that's insane! To start making people pay handsomely for such poor service... well, I'm guessing it's going to be the end of Photobucket in the very near future.

*Update*... As of this hour all of my vast amount of images that I have ever posted on this forum (and others) have vanished, thanks to Photobucket's new terms of service, which means that the cost of their third party hosting just went from FREE to... wait for it... $400 per year! Huh?? Is PB actually foolish enough to think that anyone would ever pay that? It's extortion, plain and simple! Imgur, here I come!!

I'm trying to get the hang of Imgur, now that Photobucket has just committed suicide... Does anyone know of an easier one to use?

make this forum capable of accepting photos from users libraries, like ebay and craigslist does, no outside venders needed

dumb bikers don't get to be old bikers

Yes, I second this! (it can't be that difficult to do) This has been my one and only pet peeve with this site. With other forums that I frequent, I simply click a button to add an image directly from my files. Sheesh, when I think of all the photos I have posted on here, and 20 times that many over on sister site CBR500Riders.com, and now they have all vanished forever...
