PHOTOBUCKET ALERT !!
« on: Sat Jul, 01, 2017, 11:20:AM »
PB is starting to force you to pay for 3rd party hosting .

Check your threads if you are using the free 2 GB storage @ PB -  anything other than the 500 GB service - ,  it is likely they have broken the link and are requiring $$

Happy 4 th !!    ;D

K  --  Phreeek Buscket wants 40 bucks a month to allow 3rd party hosting .
       
         I just upload that Panther to Google +   ,,      see if I can obtain higher resolution




  ..... I guess I switch to Googly Plush  !  ,

  Create " collection " and set to " private " and just use the new photo URL   ...
( this seems too easy and cheap a fix   ,,,  fingers crossed    ;D  )

Have used Fotki for years, and while you can have a free account, it is only good for X amount of space. I pay for subscription, but it is peanuts.

I just have the 100GB account, which I have been on for 13 yrs according to them, and don't even have half of it used up.

$24/yr, but if you buy multiple years, it gets cheaper. 5yrs is $92, so $18.40 a yr.

 Currently rebuilding some threads    :P

 Using Google +   ,,    working fine  . For now  ??? , don't know of any limit  .   Really big pain in the Keester .
 I was about willing to pay some ransom to PB  .   
 But 400 a year ?!   
No frigging way  . That's absolutely nutz .

I'm referring to this as the  Peanut Butter Apocalypse
Some older pix from an older PB account are still showing  ; I assume it is only a matter of time before they are hit also

  Aight   --  I see my older PB pics are not showing now   --- so that's happened .

  And   -- more disturbing  , the 2 pix on G+ here are not showing  ,,,,,,,  ??  (  maybe I delete them ,, can't find 1st pic in G+  ::)  ... so hopefully that is what has happened  . Hopefully )

  I got better stuff to do than play with this crap .

 Pix in the WIP threads that I moved to G+ are still showing . If they break I'm not replacing them ...

 EDIT   -- some are showing some ( most ) aren't  ( in the older PB account )  ?
              Wait and see I guess  :P
