Photo bucket just committed suicide

As I am sure people are seeing, they change their rulez

No more linking pictures to forums, after 11 years of using them...POOF, all my build threads and advice pictures etc...gone....and there is no way to fix all 5000 pictures out there

OH wait there is a fix!! $399 a year for 3rd party hosting....well...well

Edit
I guess when I remove my 10k of images they will have more room for paying customers.

I am not doing anything right now, they have got to revert back once they realize their mistake, otherwise millions of people world wide will ruin them

It is getting some people more than others, I have build threads on 5 different type of sites so I get more bandwidth movement than say a person on just 1 site

399 per year for this? Get real. I wonder what exec thought this was a good idea. As if the obnoxious amount of ads wasn't enough. Lucky for me, I only have a few dozen pictures.

Anybody have an alternative that doesn't have a bazillion ads and is easy to use?

Updated terms from Photobucket:::::

Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min. The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time.

Well I'm so frustrated that I cannot edit old picture posts on my thread and change picture links that I'm pretty much done posting on my thread... it's not skoolie.nets fault but the two years spent updating the project are pretty much wasted now. I got a broken thread with no way to fix it.

Pretty clever strategy. In the Mafia it is known as extortion and/or kidnapping.
