Isn't my new Avatar awesome!
« on: July 01, 2017, 09:38:31 PM »
Photobucket is apparently unhappy that I share my images on other sites - although I kinda thought that was the whole point. Right now it only seems to be affecting my avatar.
Can anyone recommend a better image host?

Oh, I don't know, I think your new avatar suits you. Really lets us know you're giving it 100%. And really, that's more than can be said for most people. ;)

I also use imgur. The only issue is getting downvotes if you have public galleries. For example some of my tutorials were downvoted on it. The user base there doesnt seem to realize that its an image hosting site first, and a community second.

Just to let you know it's nothing personal, they hit me and CB too.

I seem to be the only one they haven't hit @ Photobucket yet but I've already started moving away from it in the past few days.

So an image hosting site has decided that they don't like hosting people's images?  I can see that's going to turn out really well for them.

At least with having my own website, I never have to worry about things like this.

Oh, they don't care if you host images, you can add all you want. They just won't let you link them to anyplace unless you pay them a minimum of $39.99 a month.

..and with having cat letting us couch surf neither do I, thank you again. Photobucket was the first I signed up for years ago but I always knew it was a hook with these sites and the hammer would fall one day. Because really you can host files pretty much anywhere so what's the point? These days right off your hard drive through OneDrive if you please. I bowed back when they started covering them with ads. The key word was always "service". Beware that.

Yeah, Imgur is a very strange community. Very fickle bunch, that site.

But honestly, that site is just fine for hosting images. You don't even need to make them public. You can just share a direct link to the image. That's what I do with my stuff.

EDIT: Also, just found out that Ben Riely's Marvel RPG site has tons of images blocked out from Photobucket, too.

Yeah, a few years ago I found that Photobucket had aparently deleted like all of my pictures, so I moved over to Imgur.  Jerks.

Thanks guys, I'll set up an Imgur account soon.

I haven't had any major problems with Photoshop beyond this. Their site got bloated and slow over the past year but otherwise it's been okay.
Oddly the only image I have on there that isn't appearing for me is my avatar. I know Spade couldn't see the Green Arrow poll, but C6 clearly saw my latest skins. Makes me wonder what exactly is being restricted. Maybe it's only high traffic images?
