Well, no more pictures from me then ;(

Postby bic_bicknell » Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:54 pm

Photo bucket haven't responded to any requests I've sent them to explain their massive hike in charges for hosting third party pictures. All they do is send more automated demands to upgrade my account with threats to remove pictures if I don't pay. Each one has a reply button and every time I send the same set of questions. Now they have removed all mu pictures - over ten years worth of images posted to this and other bike forums.

I wasn't making any money from doing this, or trying to sell stuff. All I do is post images for a small number of people to share. They've ruined ten years of forum life for me.


I'm sure my posts will reduce now as I've always been a pretty image based person.

I think you can retrieve them if you don't have then stored somewhere else... let's have a go: right, what you need to do is add "~original" without quotes after .jpg in the url. Then use flickr / imgur or other hosting sites. You must have many though and would be I right pain for you to do. Hope this helps you.

I decided to try this in my "how to do it" posts and it seems to work. I don't know why adding "~original" to the end of the link works but it does, at least for now or until photofucket decides to delete everyones accounts that hasn't payed their ransom :evil:
