Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hello, 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

Thank you

I've been hearing about this, but I've still been able to use Photobucket images. What I've had to do, though, is change the way I put them into the message. Instead of copying the entire "link" for Direct, I use the IMG link, and after clicking on the "insert image" icon in the message, I remove everything except the last "http..." to the image, and take out the ending [IMG] and [URL] from it. The pictures will still show this way. This is the way I have done the picture in my signature on other forums, which seems to still be working, along with other pictures that I have put into messages here. Hope this helps!

Thank you for the advice!

PhotoBucket has been pretty good with squashing plugins and other workarounds over the last couple weeks.
Let's hope this one floats around for a little while before it get's flagged.
Also, they have been taking member's photos in waves, so be wary.

Thanks again!
