    Photofucket.

    Quick community service announcement - if you have photos hosted on Photobucket, download the albums now and transfer it to another hosting service - Photobucket are disabling what they're referring to as "3rd Party Hosting" - so if you're using it to host pics for a thread, your images will be blocked from hosting. They're charging people in the uk 400 *pounds* to allow the linking. Rumour has it this is a last ditch attempt to get cashflow into photobucket before it goes the way of imageshack...
    So download your shit, host it somewhere else, edit your threads and delete your Photobucket account - fuckem!

    Likely too late for many people.

    This is a big problem for forums like this everywhere - it will render many build topics, how-to guides and trip reports virtually useless. I'm admin on www.patrol4x4.com and we are scratching our heads about how we can best deal with it...

    Another smack in the face for the forum. Facefuck is going to get the monopoly of everything before long.

    Yeah, Failbucket, in the press of a key (ok, well, probably a whole fuckload of keys), has fucked over Forums the world over. Every forum i'm on has lost photos in ~90% of it's threads - some guys had only just rebuilt threads after the Imageshack debacle... and now they'll have to do it again.

    There's a couple of theories - 1 is that they're not hitting low bandwidth users yet. The other theorey is that they just haven't rolled it out to everyone yet.

    Had been waiting for Failbucket to fuck me over, just to see how long it took for them to get around to me...
    Copped this in the email this morning. Time for PB to upgrade their account to Eat a Dick.

    Yep, all my photos are now gone from my R1 build and what ever else I have here. This is the only forum I link pictures to from PB.
    When I get home, the deleting will begin. It will take me a while to rebuild my thread.

    I'm on five different forums each with there own build threads on vehicles I've owned over time, they'd all be stuffed now! I have moved all my pictures onto my hard drive and am now using imgur (how long that will last?)

    I have a strange feeling that the Brand specific streetfighter photo section of this forum will soon become a bomb site.

    Probable that it already is, unless directly linked from the websites they would all be missing. Sucks arss big time.

    Yeah, it was pretty fucked up after imageshack broke everything... I imagine it's proper fucked now.

    ...and indirectly, this again all boils down to Facebook taking over. Say goodbye to all the small fellas and bow to the new god. It's Bunnings all over again.
