Just for an update this still works for anyone trying to re install or recover their photos from past threads
I would love to get my stuff out of the hands of the Russians, close my Photobucket account, and put the stuff elsewhere. The problem is that some of my public folders contain images of my favorite comic book character (see icon to left) and I'd hate for Love and Rockets fans to find dead links instead of the images. Is there anything to be done about that, any kind of redirect I can set up?
I think a lot of my earlier pictures were on the photo thingy above and have since disappeared due to them now charging a subscription. Am I correct in thinking that if I paid the subscription would they all appear again ?
Does anyone know how much a month it is?
Is the answer in this thread ?
Just logged in and all my pics and vids are still on there. I'll try and download them to see if it works.
Initially the price they wanted to charge was RIDICULOUSLY high but they have dropped it considerably. You'd have to go look at their website for the exact amount though.
Personally, I'd download anything you might want to save from PB.
They've had to appoint an entire new management team after this debacle, and I wonder if they will survive as a site. The web-wide loathing being so strong now, and the place still being riddled with spam and pop ups like something from 2001.
I wouldn't give them a penny now.
Drew, you did indeed have PB images.
(You may have denied it at the time, but I spent a fair while fixing your Wormhout etc. threads. Deffo photobucket there.)
Trouble is, you also used imageshack quite a bit. And lots of image shack images seem to go tits up after a while.
I think photobucket hosted images may have reappeared anyway.
If not, check the post you want to restore is definitely photobucket before paying anyone.
And to reiterate:
The irritation at photobucket has nothing to do with image storage.
It is all about image hosting.
Not about losing images, but losing connections to images and the difficulty of putting the right image back in the right place.
You can, and probably should, have pics backed up as much as you like. None of which has any bearing on the PB thing.
Apologies if I've already mentioned this (I don't recall), but somewhere down the line they also reduced the size/quality of the images I uploaded, which is irksome as I no longer have the (now superior) originals.
Trust no one!
keep the buggers backed up on cheap ssd drives
really the only way to save lost effort
trust no one
Why SSD? More expensive per Gigabyte than a HDD, data degrades faster, little chance of data recovery in case of failure.
Either way whatever media used, multi copies, in multiple locations is the key.
trust no one not even your storage facility
