Just got this:

Verrry interesting... I used Photobucket for a few years before they decided to charge people for photos they had uploaded on a free account, but I wouldn't have a clue how to host photos, let alone what a "free tier" account is. So I'm wondering if it's a scam. I'm going to contact them directly thru their web site and see what happens. Obviously, no way I'm going to click on the links.

UPDATE: I tried their web site, but there doesn't seem to be any way to contact them directly. So the heck with it.

It just seems like the next logical step. First it is free, then once you like it they charge a nominal fee. THEN it goes up.

A puppy sale as we say in the trade.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Hasn't photobusket died yet ??

1000's of images vanished in forums worldwide and many on here.

People got ****ed off and left photobusket. Including me. I tried imghur but that can be dodgy as well.

Company who holds its user for hostage should be left far and wide.

Exactly. I had a paying account with them years and years ago, then they changed their format and made the same thing I was paying for free to everyone.

I haven't thought of them in years+ and thought they must have gone the way of AOL by now (considering the image hosting available elsewhere).
