Having a forum host images blows your disk space real quick, and space is money. So I can't see it happening any time soon.
One of the things I am considering is moving to a purely overseas host as the one I'm looking at offers much more disk space than our current Australian host. The downside is the whole site would slow down. And then there's the download limit, which when Speed Week is on we blow every year.
Being able to host all our own images future proofs the whole thing.

Hey that chrome extension works good , Thanks RGV

While i like having no spam on screen is it worth thinking about limited advertising to cover any money needs and getting the faster speeds and space on the current host ?

Both these browser add-ons work to view and save Photobucket images from threads.

Good news. Photobucket have reversed their policies and all your old photos are back.

Here's the media release :

Photobucket has new management, and we are liberating your images!

As of today, your hosted images are live.

Photobucket has a new management team that wants to do the right thing. We are committed to earning back your trust and offering comprehensive and flexible image storage and hosting options for our customers. We’ve taken your feedback and made some changes to our pricing model that allows us to offer competitively priced plans that fit the needs of all of our customers.

Today, our current customers’ hosted images have been restored and Photobucket is introducing a new pricing plan that is built around everyone’s needs.

For a limited time, we are offering a new, competitive subscription package that includes ad-free storage and 3rd party image hosting for just $1.99 per month, or $19.99 per year - which is 95 percent less than the previous pricing model. A free subscription option will still be available to customers who do not require 3rd party image hosting.

In an effort to improve our customers’ experience, we’ve also moved away from an advertising-based model and have eliminated a portion of ads from the site.

Photobucket pioneered the image sharing and hosting market 15 years ago, and our new management team is committed to returning Photobucket to the premier imaging service people had come to know and trust.

There are more positive changes on the way, but for now we are excited to share this new compelling subscription option, as a testament to our dedication to you, our valued customers.
