So Photobucket now wants to start charging me $10 a week for 3rd party image hosting. If they think I'll just pay because they're banking on me being too lazy to change providers then they don't know me.
Can anyone suggest an alternative?

Awesome, bro!

I've been using Postimg.org. myself.  I used to use TinyPic, but it's been acting up for months.

I'm looking at your avatar....is that an IRON MAIDEN thing?

I finally went to check out what was going on over at Photobucket. I couldn't get anywhere... my screen was covered with pop up ads!

At least I figured out I'm on the free plan. I used to pay them  Smiley

I'm not worried about saving my pics as most of them I've already got stashed elsewhere, it's the broken links that will annoy me.

Well done mate.

I've started an IMGUR account and will start migrating my pics over from Photobucket. I think they're counting on people paying up as it's easier.

Yeah, it's pretty damned difficult to keep a Photobucket page on screen long enough to save a pic to my hard drive with all the ads that plaster the site.  Definitely going to snag some of my favorite pics, but I've got several thousand pics spread out across 4 Photobucket accounts, so they'll be keeping most of my shit.  Gonna just mainly go with new stuff on Imgur for now.
