Sticky's, My threads and Photobucket.
on: 19 August, 2021, 03:02:12 PM
So I get a notice saying pay up or you will only have 250 pictures available.  They are not making it easy to off load all of them.
Making the time frame I have to off load anything NOW. 

Now is the time to look at the sticky's and any thread I created and you think keeping the pictures would be good please let me know. I don't have the time or will to spend days fixing it all considering the number of threads I created.

Also anyone else who has a bucket account, take notice.

Has to be an all-time fail from those fools at Photbucket.

Taking no action at all and just waiting to assess the damage.

Agreed.

My letter to support was how is it one company can host video's and make money but those who host pictures can't keeping in mind one company needs an order of magnitude to store the data.

Bright side, the prices came down.  Also asked is there a quick way to off load pictures like the tool used to UP load the pictures.

I know when they first started their  :172: there was a rush of people writing scripts to download all their content. May be worth a check on github.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

This got me wondering if I could use my OneDrive account to host photos to be shared here (since OneDrive provides 1TB of storage with an Office365 account that I already have).

Sure enough it seems to work fine.  If interested check out the instructions in the Test and Tryouts section

The forum has solved the storing issue. My problem is the amount of pictures.  Hence what threads would be worth the hassle.
