Probably too little, too late, but I thought I'd pass it along.

Wow. I'm surprised they realized they screwed the pooch and went back instead of doing the typical thing and doubling down.

I wonder if the 3 or 4 people who paid the $400 ransom for their pics will get a refund?

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

No thanks, Photobucket. I had to go rescue my photo's which was a pain in the ass and then I had to set up a new account with another photo hosting place, which was annoying. And now I'm just using that one... Which actually works better... So thank you, Photobucket.

Source? I just tried an Internet search for an announcement (or an external report), and all I came up with is reports on the prohibition.

Goto photobucket.com.  They announced a new 3rd-party hosting service for $20 a year or $2 per month.  Not sure what you get for free.

Free Accounts
When you sign up for a Photobucket account, here is what you get for FREE:

2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min.
If you had a free account on the previous version of Photobucket, you will get an additional 2 GB on top of what you've already stored. So, if you had 1 GB worth of compressed images on the Original Photobucket, on the new Photobucket you will have 2+1 = 3 GB of total storage available on the new photobucket.
If you need more storage, upgrade to a Plus account! With a Plus account you gain features such as increased storage, ad-free site browsing and more.

That doesn't say anything about free third party hosting.

Looks like it costs $39.99/month for third party hosting.
http://photobucket.com/pricing

But here http://photobucket.com/plans/ it's $399.99/year

They're so screwed up even they don't know what the cost really is.

Thanks, but no thanks.

They've had a couple glitches, but for free, I can handle the occasional issue.

Yes, but I use the Firefox add-on, so for me your monkey never stopped dancing.

They now have a personal premium plan that's $99 a year that offers third party hosting. It looks likely they've not fully updated their site yet to reflect that information, though.

"For a limited time only."

I saw a reference to a $1.99 personal account on another forum site -- again with no indication of the source. I'm not going back. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."
