Photobucket and image threads
« on: January 29, 2017, 09:27:51 AM »
I've noticed that photobucket has stopped playing nice with image threads in the last day or so. Image links won't load which keeps the page in a loading status and so all the beautiful pics users have so kindly thumbnailed won't embiggen.

Yes, it seems to have issues the past day or so.

Photobucket is going down the drain.

Does this mean we shouldn't use images from Photobucket?

What would be another site that one would recommend if Photobucket continues to act up?

I too would recommend imgur, especially for its privacy options. You may not realize this, but if someone gets a link for one of your photobucket images, they can easily browse through your entire collection. I don't know why they didn't fix or make an obvious point to their users about this issue, but it's been there for years.

That's only true for Photobucket if you don't mark your albums as private, which is easy enough to do with the "Album Privacy" setting in the "privacy" section of "settings" for the whole account, or on each album separately.
