Hey GASRians,

Photobucket has changed their Terms of Service which is affecting a lot of our members currently.  As of now, hotlinking (displaying an image from another website) requires you to purchase a subscription via Photobucket called "Plus 500".   This subscription costs $399.99usd a year, which is an absolutely ludicrous amount to be asking just to link images off the website.

Users who have a free account on photobucket will not be able to upload and link images from their website on forums or blogs without upgrading your account.  We realize this is a huge inconvenience as this is one of the most popular image hosting websites, but we urge all of you with free accounts to check your shops and posts for images that have been replaced with the photobucket warning message, and correct them with new links from another image host.

The replacement image looks like this:







We have some alternative image hosting sites that are made specifically for use in forums/blogs:



We do not recommend websites like imgur and the like.  They are also constantly changing their services and are disabling hotlinking on several websites due to bandwidth issues.

I find it's best to use DA ; n; for that kind of thing. I've been using DA's sta.sh for hosting my images/refs etc. Photobucket is so slow these days </3 used to be good.

I was gonna say they're shit but I didn't want to be seen as a big ol' meanie head.
Leave it to Chelly to take care of that for me. ;'>

Not like things were already irritating enough; I think I might need to give up my odd hatred to sta.sh after all.

I haven't used Photobucket in years

Assbucket.

Bless.

I'm shocked they haven't shut down yet. I haven't used it in years since its so slow and just no -- I should delete my account if that is even a thing.

I wondered what going on when I saw that image everywhere.

I have been using crapbucket for several years and not just for GASR, but for banners and product pages on IMVU as well.

This crapbucket "update" broke over 2,500 of my IMVU product pages, some of which had been up without issue for almost seven years.

I'll be switching to another hosting service, and I will never use crapbucket again even if they go back on that update. $400 is outrageous and I'd rather re-do all of those product pages twice over than pay that.

Well there goes all of the organization I have for my shop.. And I litterally have 500+ pictures for my art on there. This is such bull shit. >:C
This litterally broke every single thing that I have. On every site that I use. :^) About to just give up on life entirely :DDDDDDDD

:^) 
Spoiler:
 
I can't even save any images from there anymore. they're all this stupid image now wtf.

also another thing that postimage.org. I just tried to sign up, entered my email and then i said a pasword was sent to me.... been waiting her since I posted for that email and nothing tried sending again and its not working  sketch

I had an account for Photobucket recently but that app make it slow down while I viewed its image recently. Then, I need view my image that I uploaded recently but it is slow down to view its image. (Whats wrong with Photobucket?! Its slow like a turtle lmao.) so I decided to delete my Photobucket account then I started create new account in sta.sh (DA account).

Ye, this change really sucks.  I had to change all of my shop images earlier today and there's probably still a few people who have a broken support image link in their own somewhere.

Maybe they're trying to save themselves from bankruptcy by making this change, but I don't see how it benefits anyone who uses them solely as an image host.



If your profile background is broken, please PM me with a new image link and I'll update it tomorrow when I get back online.

I use funkyimg a lot haha it's the same as servimg though ^-^
Also I can't believe people still used it as their main source for hosting.
It's so slow how did y'all do it?
Not to sound rude ;;;
