    So I've noticed that all of my Photobucket images are still in my account but on the posted sites they show up as a notice to see new third party hosting regs. Go on their site and it appears they now charge you to post to third party sites like the 'fuge. Is this what all of you are seeing?

    I got an email from Photobucket. We are 3rd party hosters, and they are no longer allowing that to go on. They want me to update my account for a $300plus annual fee, in order to continue posting photos like we have been doing here and on other forums. I went back and deleted every photo I had with them (hundreds).

    I wonder why they decided to do that. I'm sure they lost a ton of users like us.
