Hello Oblivion Staters!

A note regarding photobucket images. If you have a PB account you may have had communications regarding it already.

They seem to have made some pretty hefty changes commercially, looking at this blog post


In short, they ditched the chief who thought it would be a good idea to slap users with a $400 fee to share their images, and replaced the pricing structure with a "fairer" one.

Don't be fooled. Yes they don't replace your image with the dreaded icon - but they do throttle your photo bandwidth to an unusable amount of 25MB (for our purpose). Once you exceed this (in about 1 or 2 reports) ALL of your hosted pictures go blurry for that 30 day period.


They are also increasing their prices.

A lot of you will have had your threads moved to the "threads for fixing area" - this is a reason why for a lot of the treads in there. It doesn't seem to affect everyone for some reason, possibly due to caching - but this is the most likely reason.

If you are one of those users - please get in touch with me if you have the originals on your PC. It can be solved quite easily.

One would hope that anyone with an ounce of common sense would have left when they started charging $400!
