    Yea alot of DIYs that I've been wanting to try have been ruined buy the photo bucket bull. I'm more of a picture learning kind of guy so it messes me up. Wanted to do the v6 hood strut on a 4cyl. One day it worked and the next no more pictures

    got a new email from good old photobucket today. one part says...

    i can only guess that one of those services is the look at your own photos that you've uploaded here function :lawl: :rolleyes:

    they've started blocking me out of looking at my own photos. not all of them, but a few i've been blocked after i've clicked on the image to view it :boo: i'm slowly going through my stuff on there though and deleting it. phuck fotobucket :lawl:

    There's a Chrome extension that works around the block so you can still see PB photos. Doesn't always work but it helps when you're browsing and a bunch of old photos get blocked.

    I don't think they'll be around much longer. There are a lot of big E-journalism sites flaming them for this cash grab. Reddit community and forums seem to share the same dismay but probably because we relied heavily on photobucket. I feel like soon EVERYTHING will have either ads, subscription based services to use it at all or some kind of monetary system that requires you to pay the company to use any service. Even just basic information and articles. :shrug:

    Interesting that some the pictures, that I couldn't see before, I can now.
    Not just on this form, but others as well.

    That's funny, all mine look to be visible again. Maybe Photbucket realized they phucked up. :lawl:
