The weird thing is, I've checked old TRs and my photos are still there. I'm sure eventually they will disappear, but it seems odd that some PPs photos are gone and others are still ok.

Perhaps we really need to know what is the real definition of third party hosting is according to Photobucket? When sharing a photo on Photobucket and clicking one of the links on the right there are several options and we tend to use the IMG one which may be what is known as third party hosting? Other options are available and three other ones which are email and IM (instant messaging), direct and HTML.

Just wondering if perhaps with this dilemma looming over us for the future that it will be a huge a huge concern on this board as especially those of us who rely on this photo hosting will be a big problem. Perhaps, something Jennifer and Dave will need to be concerned about and may have to change things here a bit regarding photos but to no fault of theirs!

If PB does go through with this it would probably be a good idea for the mods on the TR to update other ways to have our photos hosted as we live for this in our TRS or do it some way directly here without killing the board's bandwith and overloading it. Probably time to think about acting now and preventive measures before we all start losing our photos and the many hours of hard work we put into these TRS that we love to share!

Sorry, for rambling on but something needs to be done as this photo hosting is such an integral part of the TR sections and the board overall! This ticks me off so much as we may not get much warning from PB!

I follow a number of threads on another Disney Related site dedicated to us Ft W fans. People over there that choose free or lower cost options are finding their posted pics being replaced by an image that looks like a gauge face advising them and others that their permission to post photos and previously posted photos has been suspended unless they upgrade their account. I am going to see what PhotoShop will do for me.

I think if anyone comes across a good alternative to Photobucket, it's fair to say we'd all love to hear about it.

As of right now (Sat 7/15, 11 amish) my photos are still in my TR's but I too expect them to go away. It still stinks what they're doing.

I just found this with a search. I've heard of this site and think it's pretty legit. Not sure if it will do any good regarding Photbucket's policy but I did sign it.

I hope PB reverses their policy or at least makes it affordable to the average user. Many of us have put a lot of hard work into the TRs with the photos that will be gone soon!

I hope it's ok to post this link here!

The site is definitely legit. I've signed previous petitions on this site before.

It may be legit but did anyone else sign it and then have it ask for money to share with other supporters?

It did ask for money, but I just ignored that. It still registers our signatures.

It does ask for money but you can just sign it and not contribute. It's clearly up to you.

I'm assuming that another host site will fill their shoes, and PB will backpedal like maniacs.

Thanks, Dave! I've signed, and just ignored the request for a donation. Hope this turns things around.

I have been researching other possibilities, but except for Flickr, which has limited storage without a fee, I am not finding anything at all comparable. If someone here has used Flickr, I would love to hear your opinion on how well it works and whether or not you have upgrade to the pay plans.

I remember using it many, many years ago when I was originally picking a photo storage system (which I reckon was at least 2007, that's how long I've been with Photobucket ) and I found Photobucket easier to use, which is why I went with it. If I remember right, Flickr has random names for its photos, so you had to copy the URL for each one individually, whereas with Photobucket, once you knew what the URL was a particular album, it remained the same for that album, so all you had to change was the number of the photo, which was much simpler.

I have not received an email as of yet. I too have been using PB since around 2007. I have some 5,000 plus photos on their site. I pay the upgraded $40 or so a year and acorrding to their blog which no comments are allowed my photos will be available until Dec 31, 2018 if I keep my account in good standing. They claim.they are the number 1 photo hosting site and do they really believe they will remain that way when people start leaving due to this ludicrous pricing? :-(
