Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hello,

Photobucket.com has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20 images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other third party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Photobucket Terms of Use http://photobucket.com/terms

Thank you

Community Support

I already experience at 75-80% failure rate in viewing images in threads over a year old anyway. No pics = worthless as tits on a bull. PhotoBucket can suck it!

Hey, Shirley. May I call you Shirley? Well I will because "Administrator" just doesn't do it for me. How about granting all users, even the free users, a 90 day pass to edit anything they've previously posted? You can then send out a message to all users AND post a bulletin on the top of the site notifying them of the change and that they have 90 days to edit their posts. Seems like it would cut down on a lot of frustration on the grumpy old men here who resist change or have difficulty figuring out how to send a message. It would probably also lighten the workload on your non-paid summer intern staff. For the tip, feel free to upgrade my membership status to lifetime paying emperor status.

For those thinking about hosting your pics on another "free" site....why? The new site will eventually sell out too. Just drag and drop those mofo pics right from the folder on your hard drive to this site and upload them here. Sure, AutoGuide is gonna crash or get hacked again in the future, but so what? It's F-R-E-E, and that's spells FREE.

Hey guys,

Re: Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hi Kirk

I work helping people with their computer problems all day long at work.

Maybe I can help you.

If "PB File/Folders/Pics" folder is on your local hard drive you can copy those files to a USB thumb drive or as you call it "Stick thing" just fine. You can probably just go to your posts that have the PhotoBucket pictures in them and then "Browse" in that post to your new picture location, "PB File/Folders/Pics" , and choose that location rather than Photobucket.

After saying this, like the Administrator said, contact them if you need more assistance. I do not work for the Chevelles.com website.

Hope that this helps.

Eric

Re: Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Open the album you want o download on photobucket. On the right of the album page is a download option. Click it then yes. After a few minutes it will be ready to download (you will be given a prompt to select) to a folder of your choosing, whether it is on your computer or a memory stick...
