I have discovered today that Photobucket has disabled my account due to the fact that I share my images here at Bloom@CBS.

The problem can be solved, but to a huge cost, which I am not willing to pay.

I had to find a new image host, and it will now take some time to get all my posts up and ready again.

I ask that you be patient with me, since to my dismay I also discovered that I do not have the original screenshots anymore.
So I will have to get new ones, and as I do, I will get all my posts ready again.

OMG Anita! Does this mean every item you've every posted a screenshot of you need to replace?

Please don't worry about rushing, just take your time and not stress about it. I'm sure that everybody will understand and be patient until you get it all sorted out

Yes, but I still had an account with tinypic, so I read their terms and conditions, and it does not seem as if they have a problem with third party hosting.

TJ: yes, I have to reupload each and every image again. Some of them I did not save after uploading..... who would have thought that it would be needed again..... some was able to retrieve, but not all.

I am quite upset..... but will get it done somehow!

I had lots of trouble with Tinypic in the past Anita .. better not use them for a lot of pictures..
they are changing image -url's from time to time .. and suddenly ANY other picture will be displayed here in your post. So better not use that ..

Oh no Anita..that is soo ridiculous I hope you get them all straightened out quick..

I have a lot of pictures over at Photobucket.. I guess I better get all my stuff off of Photobucket..

Tinypic is just as bad with ads and I have had some very Rated X posts when tinypic gets messed up..

I would use.. Servimg.com now I'm not sure how that works..I was able to get it because of my site..so not sure if just anyone can use it..also I have no ads at all..not one..

The problem is .. you can't even save the pictures which are still displayed ..
so I have to search for every single picture on my computer again .. for tons and tons of pictures ...
I could cry .. that is unbelieveable .. so much work .. pull hair out

For a long time I was keeping all my photos but then I just started deleting them...omgosh I shouldn't have done that..I think I will go back slowly and resave the photos and then put them in a folder and put it somewhere..

Shoot I just reread you post Crissi..what do you mean you can resave your pictures..that are displayed..

I use Photobucket for family pictures and Affiliate Buttons..I better go check my site..and see what kind of mess that is in

Thank you Anneke .. hihi bighugs

Sam - it seams as if Photobucket changed the rules for everyone ..
so no kind of "3rd hotlinking". What worked for years - is no longer possible ..
I am having a great amount of pictures on Photobucket .. but they are no longer
useable for our forum. I just can save a few of my stored Photobucket Pictures - but some of
them are no longer displayed (just in form of their note) and so .. no longer useable for us.
You better go and save all your Photobucket Pictures elsewhere ..
Thats work for over a week for me .. to change all the picture here .

I checked my site and all my Affiliate Buttons are still there and working..that's a good thing..and I went into Photobucket and all my pictures are still there..so that's a good thing as well..

But I am going to move everything..but the only thing is I don't know how to use anything else for my Affiliate Buttons..so I will keep those on there until I find something else that works..

I am glad that Anita put this post up for a warning to everyone that uses it..

Anita, Crissi, Tilly can you put this as a sticky..so it don't get lost in all the other posts..please..

Sam .. Lisa is using imgur .. and does not have any problems with it ..
I guess its better you are looking for an other picture hosting site instead of Photobucket .. since I guess they will
add these kind of changes to all members step by step ..
I've started using imgur too .. and use the serv img to host pictures here

Hi All... same here for me with all my DOTY pics uploaded to simpearls...

Everyone (and I do mean everyone) who uses Photobucket for image hosting is in the same boat. The internet is truly abuzz with people aghast and discussing this!!!

I don't know too many people who can afford what they want to charge for third-party image hosting will be able to pay the price ($399 per year is truly ridiculous!)...

(I'm going to talk with my brother about space on his server for image hosting and what the cost might be. He does web design and hosting, so he should be able to do something reasonable for me. If anyone else is interested, I could ask about that, as well.)

...I'm concerned that other image hosting sites may decide to do something similar.

...I use Imgur for my pictures here - so far, that doesn't appear to be an issue and I hope it stays that way :D

I have been downloading all my albums from Photobucket and reuploading them to my OneDrive for safe keeping. I will be deleting everything except the DOTY album for now and then be deleting my Photobucket account as soon as I figure out a way to host my images elsewhere.

I'm as disgusted and upset with Photobucket as anyone else. Seriously, no warning about deciding to do this? Just an email that went to Spam for most people... and that weird image in place of pictures...

...all over forums everywhere :(

I have imgur..but for the life in me I don't know how to use it..when I put a picture link on here it takes it straight to imgur..I hate that..

I may just use that for family pictures..and use the serving for here

Crissi, for me as well, I was able to get a few of my pics from the bucket, but not all of them.
So I will have to recreate scenes to take pictures of some of the sets..... so it is going to take me a while as well.

I have started with tinypic, but as Sam pointed out there are ads as well.... so I have not done a lot.... may be I should try out imgur.

Suzanne: If one could afford it I will support your brother as well. But in the meantime I will upload to imgur.
They did not even pay me the courtesy to send me an e mail....not even to my spam.
What surprised me more, was that I could see the pics, and only after I went to the photobucket account did I see the clock thingy..... I was very upset.

My account is also gone and I guess all of my photos are gone now because I have not saved them anywhere else. I thought the photobucket was ready to share pictures but it's not just here as there's a problem it's the same on Simpearls
I created an account on Imgur when I would upload pictures to Doty and it is much faster and better.
Can I get my pictures back in any way? Without having to pay.

Marie, I was able to retrieve some of my pictures. I clicked on the image in the photobucket account, and on some I was still able to see the image. I then left clicked and saved it my external hard drive.
I do hope you will be able to do so as well.

May I then ask that someone head over to my sims 4 meshes thread and just check for me whether the pictures are no all showing up right?

What a mess! There are sooo many artists that use photobucket to post their creations. I can't imagine the impact this is going to have on the Sims community.

I went into my account and saved all my photos to my hard drive. I can't believe they are springing this on so many users after years of use.
