I just checked my PB and it is fine, could it be that your storage is full.

Just a thought, have you logged out and logged back in again to see if it clears?

Thanks Les I think I have found the problem storage is ok but apparently there is a limit on my ability to share ? Looks like I may be switching to Flicker all though the picture seems to have appeared now

They have just made changes to their Terms & Conditions, I wonder if that affected it?

I haven't checked my PB account yet however from what you have said it appears all "free" users of PB now have to pay.
I knew I had to ditch them anyway as it has become near impossible for me to use.

However it appears the worst thing is it may have affected all those who have posted and have a free account.

I just saw this thread

http://modelsteam.myfreeforum.org/about96593.html

Whilst people have commented on the pictures, none are showing for me. Just the symbol that you have posted

It looks as if Flash has had his account disabled.

Just checked some old posts of mine, and PB pics are showing up.
Went to my photobucket account and started reading the updated terms of use and saw this

Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min. The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time.


Just posting one of my last uploaded pictures to photobucket as a test

EDIT: Pic Removed. It worked but I removed it to reduce bandwidth


I have a free account

I wonder when all free PB accounts are held to ransom and suspended, will this effectively kill many many forums?

Boxman can you link to any older pictures you have uploaded?

I'm just wondering if any pictures uploaded since the new terms came into effect are subject to the new rule. But pictures uploaded prior are still linkable.

A while back there was a thread about many having issues with using photobucket and suggestions for other hosting sites.

I recalled one of the members in the thread and they moved to flickr.
I haven't tried it but have been meaning to set up an account there.
I think that is the only choice/or pay.

I picked this off their website.

Quote:
Photobucket

3rd party hosting.

Photobucket defines 3rd party hosting as the action of embedding an image or photo onto another website.

For example, using the tag to embed or display a JPEG image from your Photobucket account on another website such as a forum, Etsy, eBay auction listings, blog, etc. is definitively 3rd party hosting.


What is linking?

When we use the term 'linking', we are referring to use of an image link from your account. More specifically, the action of sharing or posting only the link (not image) on a 3rd party website that redirects back to Photobucket when clicked.

An example of linking is sharing the link to your image with friends to view on Photobucket.


It looks as if it will affect not only forums but Ebay as well.

That's for sure.
Going to photobuckets homepage it took 22 seconds for it to fully load. A split second for flickr.

I just signed up. I don't understand the need for a yahoo account but that was easily enough sorted.
