I have also noticed that my older threads and post with images linked to my first photo bucket account still work ok. There must of been a change in the T&Cs in my newer account which allows them to start charging.

The slow conversion to flkr links goes on (and on...)

I think they allow a free allocation up to a certain file size and then start charging beyond that so old photos uploaded before that limit was reached should still work unless you have closed your account down.

Slowly repairing my old posts and bike reviews with new picture links....a real pain in the bum! Got most of the bike trips done and some bike reviews. This will take me months!

The links seem to be working again! I wonder if Photobucket have backed down when virtually nobody paid for hosting?

That is a bummer

This is an example of a post where the picture links seem to be working ok again...

Nope, apparently the CEO of Photobucket has been fired

AWESOME, I think that person (if they were the decision maker) singlehandedly broke the company by greed. My faith has been lost with them now though, and their actions have lost me photos I can now never see again because they never sent me the copies of them all they promised. I wonder if they will get sued by folk for the loss of data.... I just hate them now. They had 14 years worth of my photos stored where I thought they were safe. It is how they acted that has 100% put me off cloud storage. I'd rather have a wedge of hard drives with stuff archived that are my responsibility to keep safe.

I am so gutted for you about those photos. I have a huge archive on various hard disks and so glad I did now, it did feel a pain at times. If they had asked a tenner I might of paid up, but the amount they wanted was absurd
