Bummer dude. Really sucks that your stuff is no longer displayed. After reading through PB costumer complaints i'm gad  your smart enough not to fall for their scams. Really hope your able to find a new way to get your photos back on sites.

I have a simple account that hasn't been used in a few years. Almost all the sites I belong to allow me to upload images from my computer.  I'd say drop PB and get your own web site. For $8 a month you get 100GB. For between $16 to $20  a month you get unlimited band with and storage. Check out Go Daddy. It's not free. But from what I've read following your links PB isn't free anymore either. And PB doesn't seem to mind pulling their paying costumers though the mud.

general non-furry discussion / Time to dump Photobucket.

A few days ago, all my pictures were fine and were showing up on various model kit building forums. But now, things have changed, and not in a good way. Just recently, I've noticed a lot of my pictures have been replaced by the following:
http://photobucket.com/p500/    :o
Apparently, PB has changed their Terms of Service and a lot of people aren't happy about it as described here:
http://blog.photobucket.com/status/comment-page-1/

I am not happy about upgrading to a Plus 500 plan nor will I give PB money.   >:(  Therefore, I finally decided to delete my PB account. I am sorry to say that all my pictures from various model threads are now gone. Whether I will refix all my threads at various model forums with having the pictures on a new photo hosting service is unknown at this time.

This post isn't just about what happened to me, but I also wanted to warn others too about what is happening at Photobucket and what could potentially happen to your accounts as well.

Kilts! Invented by a people even the Romans found too hard to conquer!

If I remember right Roman soldiers wore kilt type clothing. I always
figured it was to make life easier when nature called..  :D

Being caught with ones pants down could be serious considering the
type of battles they had.

Trump Day 159
Our man Trump had a meeting at the white hous with the GOP members
of the senate. It appeared Trump had them there to discuss the
health bil, but he seemed to have problems keeping on the subject
at hand. Trump should learn more about a bill if he wants to convince
people to vote for it.

Trump continues to call the main media fake news. Sometimes I think he
thinks acting like Russias Putin is a good idea.Trump seems to think all very
rich men are smart even if they steal the money like Putin has. This is how
all authoritarian leaders do. They tell the people what to believe, and not to
believe any one else. Trump has a lot of people who think he is smart enough
to make their lives better, Trump will continue to blame everyone one but his
self for our problems. Hopefully those supporters will see Trump for what he
really is. He only wants people to think he is a Great leader, and if he
fails it will be the opposition at fault.

The GOP leadership gave up on the vote for the health bil, but it's just
a temporary stay. They will be back at it in a couple weeks. So thoose
who want good health care best keep the pressure on, because the GOP
plan will hurt the working poor with a hand out to the rich.


GOP
Our friendly GOP continue to say the ACA is failing, but it's the
uncertainty of what will happen that is driving the insurance companies
away. They want to know the rules before they play the game.

It's true several states never set up the medicaid expansion,, so it is
possible more people might have insurance with the new plan in those
states. The problem is over all the GOP wants to cut medicade and put
limits on the money states can have for medicaid.

The GOP keeps claiming they need to cut taxes to improve the economy.
Cutting services like medicaid removes Billions of dollars from the economy.
Cutting taxes for rich fat cats doesn't put money in to the conomey. They
invest in real estate for the most part due to  tax benifits. That's why
Trump likes dealing in real estate. It doesn't make all that many good jobs
though.

The GOP continues to claim free enterprise is the best way. People should
buy insurance to fit their needs. This is fine for healthy people if they are
in a group plan. Individuals trying to buy insurance pay through the nose
for insurance that gives good coverage. Insurance companies are out to
make all the money they can. Only when hundreds of people or more get
together do the companies offer plans at a better price. This is why the
government should be able to get the lowest possible price.. That is till
a lobbyist comes along crying the blues, and offering money to congress
to get a better deal for the insurance company they work for. This is why
people need to get out and vote. Kick out those in congress who turn
against the people for their own profit.

This is one reason many people feel they have good coverage. They work
for a big business who have good health coverage that comes with the
job. This is fine, but if they loose their job they loose the health coverage.
This is when they find out what it's like to owe thousands for some small
health problem, and end up loosing their credit rating, and in many cases
going bankrupt. It's a shame so many people ignore this till it hits them
personally. Since the ACA started almost 50% fewer people have gone
bankrupt. The ACA needs to be fixed. When Obama worked to get it
passed the GOP made a lot of amendments to weaken the plan. I think
they did this to help the big insurance compainies make more money
and change the ACA so the public wouldn't like it.

The GOP is out to help big business even if it hurts the little guy.

Trump Day 158
Our man Trump sent out a report thata Syeria was about to kill more people
with gas, and he Trump would likely see they paid for it.. I am thinking
Trump made this report trying to devert attention from the health bill in
the senate. I could be wrong, but Trump is capable of about anything if
he wants something bad enough.

Other than that Trumps son n law hired another lawyer. Apparently
he feels he might need legal help. Only thing just because a lawyer charges
a big fee doesn't mean he can get a guilty person out of serious trouble.

Trump and the GOP leadership is twisting arms trying to get the votes needed
to pass the senate health bill. The senate leader is afraid if they don't pass it
now the public will convince a senator or two to vote no.  He and Trump both
should be ashamed trying to rush this bill which could cost millions their
health care, and raise insurance rates for millions more. Not counting those
with health issues will see rates sky rocket. The GOP say they have subsities
to help, but not enough for the working poor.

If they pass it, I think it's only the beginning. They will go after other social
programs next. Medicaid,  Medicare, and social security. The GOP wants to
privatize it all..  History has shown it won't work, people will put off saving
for retirment, put of buying insurance. Then when they loose their job they
are standing in the streets begging. This will lead to more crime, and family
violence.  Free market works fine for many things, but sometimes we have
to help people help themselves.
