Seems to be when you get an email from photobucket, then your pictures stop showing

Still working for me put I've downloaded all my 2000 odd images onto a cloud and closed the account with Photobucket.

Just wondering if Forum policy now allows photos to be loaded to it, or is it preferred to find another pic hosting site like ImageShack?

Attachments have now been added, there's a tab down the bottom.

.png files are usually too big, but .jpg seem to work properly so far.

No point in going over 800 pixels wide though, to cut down the size.

And in one fell swoop Photobucket made millions of forum posts utterly useless.

Bunch of c*nts.

I've had 3 emails so far from photobucket.

30 June titled "Some features on your account have been disabled"

followed by all my forum photo's being replaced by their avatar.

Then ...

12 July titled "Some features on your account will be disabled."
and repeated
20 July titled "Some features on your account will be disabled."

Funny how I get the "will be" before the "have been" - tossers!

Still a ridiculous size though - I can't get my Avatar pic to be accepted despite making it smaller than the demanded size in both pixels AND Mb

Ditto with the Avatar since I joined the Forum.
