Photobucket images - not for forum use

Recently the image hosting service Photobucket changed their terms of use for account holders and no longer allow embedded images to be displayed on forums. As a result the forum had many threads lose their photo documentation.

Moving forward we will disallow links to Photobucket and ask that you store your images with the posted text that they were intended to augment, here on the forum.

Forum members can store images posts and threads using the attachment option found in the advanced reply editor or in photo albums set up in individual profiles. There is no cost to store images here and this will ensure that your content is not diminished by an image hosting service changing their minds about how your content is handled. Thanks for understanding.

Yes, you can but remember that if the images are ever removed from their server (or held ransom in return for new subscriber fees) they will no longer display here.

No problemo. I wouldn't blame this site for the misdeeds of another site. I can't believe folks were mad at you admins over what photobucket decided to do!
THanks!

Thanks Janet and I sure hope none of us sounded like we were blaming Skoolie.net for pb's action!

Would it be possible to post a tutorial for those of us like me who can barely turn on a computer--let alone figure out pic posting?

I'm game to try it on my own but I'd sure hate to crash the whole site in the attempt!

Hi Janet,

Kind of continuing from Christopher's note... Saying that PhotoBucket "no longer allow embedded images to be displayed on forums" is not accurate. It is only true of the FREE PB accounts (and I think it is actually a bit more complicated than that...). So, it is still a viable image hosting service (whether one agree's with their fee is another matter).

Kind of reading between the lines of your post - it hints that ONLY images stored here on Skoolie.net will be allowed/displayed. I hope that is not the case as many of us have our own image hosting and, either because of property rights or simply added effort, will not change our approach.

Regardless of all that, thanks for your efforts and the great resource that Skoolie.net has become!

A simple case of extortion by the good folks at PB (Puke Bucket). Reminds me of the drug dealers who work school grounds...

"Hey kid...try this...it's free".

Then once they are hooked...the price goes through the roof.
