Photobucket Issues--Very important--Please read!


Hello All.

Susa has asked me to post this because she is so busy right now trying to straighten out all of the problems that the Photobucket changes are causing her.

She has two main requests:

1. Please do not delete your picture threads. Susa will eventually move them all to a "PhotobucketDestroyedThese" forum. That way, if Photobucket ever changes their mind, the photos will come back.

2. Please do not to add on to your old picture threads with new pictures from somewhere else. Instead, please start a new thread. That way, all of the new pictures will stay in the Photo Album.

I know that Susa will appreciate your help in these issues.

Re:


Edited to say, this site may not be allowed on Runboard, so don't use it until we know that it is allowed.

I have spent the day hunting for a new hosting/sharing site and I think I have found one I like!!!!

I signed up ]HERE. I haven't uploaded too many pictures yet, but it is super simple!

WOT likes them and Malwarebytes has not complained.

Their name is Postimage. I am going to do some bird pictures after I read awhile.

Re: Re:


Hubby is working today, and he sent me this link about the Photobucket issues.

]Photobucket Issues

Some of the comments are quite interesting, for example, this one:

quote:

"I was one of users affected. I found that any newly uploaded images were also struck with the same problem.

However when I opened a new account for free the newly uploaded images link fine.

Hence this really is "blackmail" because they're not saying, "Moving forward we're charging users for new uploads and linking." Instead they're NOT charging new users for new linking. They're only charging their existing users for images they've had for YEARS! They're saying, "If you want years worth of work back you have to pay $400."

Re: Re:


Yes, I really wonder, too.

I wonder if those accounts will be okay for now, but later will be subject to the same rules as older accounts.

Not a good way to do business! At least, not a way to keep happy customers!

And as we now [sign in to see URL] you are willing to pay the extortion price of $399 per [sign in to see URL] the photos and graphics that were on your photobucket albums are slowing disappearing on EVERY site you ever put them on! emoticon

I [sign in to see URL]'ve read on other places (not Runboard) how it has affected people who are collectors, or [sign in to see URL] horrible! On one china collection site I ran across, it was preserving history, not just china patterns. And some of the contributors have passed away, now those photos are gone, and that part of the written history has less meaning, and can never be replaced. emoticon

Re:


I did discover, on a destroyed picture, that I could right click on it, get the image code, paste it in Google at the top of the screen, hit enter and I got the picture. The pictures are still in Photobucket, unless the person deleted their album. No one should delete their album!!!

[sign in to see URL] did not know that! I tried the view photo but of course that said...'check the url' or something.

I think some [sign in to see URL], maybe Lesa, have their own server things. Isn't that where the RB stuff is stashed?
I wonder if it's expensive to buy our own? emoticon I mean I was spending [sign in to see URL] a year on photobucket!

Re:


I have been trying out how to get my own server and then photo sharing to go with it, but I have no clue what is the best to buy and then once I get the server, I don't know how to get the addition to do photo sharing. It is a two step process. I asked Lesa if she would help me and she did not answer me. That was on Sunday. If I ever figure it out, I will let you know how to do it.

Re: Photobucket Issues--Very important--Please read!


I brought this idea up to hubby and he said we ALL need to be careful. Because most internet providers would NOT allow us to host servers.
He does not know how to do the photos and such here, but he knows [sign in to see URL] sell and install CISCO servers, but for company's that pay hundreds of thousands for them!
He does not think our internet provider, Cable One, would allow a server on their service for private customers. AND if they do, we would pay through the nose for the extra bandwidth. WE would pay what BIG company's pay who have hundreds of computers hooked up! emoticon emoticon emoticon

THERE just is NO easy answer! emoticon

Re:


I have been reading tonight. It sounds like what we would really be doing is renting space on a server, not hosting a server. I keep getting led to one specific place. After I do more research, I will let you know.

Re:


OK! I did it! I have my own hosting site. [sign in to see URL]

I have HostGator Cloud. It cost me $[sign in to see URL]. That is with the sale price in the article I just posted the link for. (Yes. I know. I ended with a preposition.)

It will cost me [sign in to see URL] per year after this.

I talked to them on the phone and they assured me that I can use the pictures on my message boards. There is a limit of pictures, but the limit was much more than I have ever used on Photobucket. I can have 250,000 inodes, whatever that means, but they will only back up 100,000 inodes.

WHOA!!!! You took the leap!! emoticon

Right now, I'm using the German one pastor linked to on Facebook (auto goggle translate).
But I'm reading up on using the Microsoft Cloud [sign in to see URL]'s confusing though.
I may need to bite the bullet and ask hubby to look at it. I hate [sign in to see URL] got very grouchy when I brought up the whole photobucket thing and where to go!! emoticon

Did you try Gifyu? It is so easy. I saw that German one, but did not explore it extensively. It looked like a pain.

I have Gifyu book marked to try. I've not done it yet. So much to catch up on before getting to my photos.

The only pain part about the German one is, making sure Google/firefox is set to auto translate. I just had to find the Google Translate addon in firefox. The first page, was making a profile. It took the longest to translate. After that, as I upload photos (I did Sues Bday picture there)...it took a mere second to translate and change pages. emoticon

Congratulations on your own server! Well done!

I think the yearly cost is too high... but as long as it's okay for you and you can handle the uploads, it's all good.

Re:


It seems pretty simple. However, I did not know the true cost in the future until after I had signed up. I think I am going to drop Ancestry and that will more than pay for it. I had no clue what company to go with. I could only go by the ads I read and this was number one.

Now, I need to figure out how to make folders. However, to find things, I can put in the picture name and do a search. Right now, I don't have enough pictures there to bother with that.

[sign in to see URL], since you do not have a physical server, you are using "the Cloud" by some company.
I just sent off a Service desk question asking them (Microsoft, since the "OneDrive" cloud) is already in stalled in Windows 10)..if they allow 3rd party linking. emoticon

Yes! That is basically what I have bought. It uses their bandwidth, not mine.

If it is like Google Cloud or Amazon Cloud, there is no way to make a picture show in a message board.

And if it [sign in to see URL] don't get why one would use "the Cloud". I guess as a backup to your computer, so if it crashes you don't lose everything.....
