PHOTOBUCKET SWITCHED BACK ON!

Postby longshot » Wed Jun 20, 2018 12:43 am

Good News Just read on the WIX forum that the policy has been reversed, photos are visible again and the CEO responsible for the 'initiative' has departed the boardroom!! Seems to be true

I can confirm that my missing images have come back to their relevant messages. Thanks for the alert Longshot!

I wonder how long it will last? Hopefully for quite awhile. There were a lot of empty forums out there in Interwebland.

Ha!......not quite as wonderful as it could be...my images now have 'Proudly Hosted by Photobucket' overlaid on the lower left corner quite intrusively...I'm guessing it's applied to free accounts, I certainly wouldn't pay for such a privilege!

Let me try. I still have my free PB account.

I don't see anything added to these PB hosted pictures.

Hi Chris, well, PB IS working again and this image is one that I have previously uploaded to PB and it isn't marked in any way.

However, I have just looked through older pages of the forum and have seen photos marked with a PB logo - and it's quite a big one too.

I'll try uploading a completely new image and see what that looks like.

But, Hey Ho, at least they are there......

....and is here an up-loaded image from a few seconds ago. No PB logo seen here.

So, for sure we can continue to upload ok without anything being 'inserted' into or over/across the image.

Beg's the thought, why is there a logo on other images..?

Still, whatever the reason for that, it aint happening to us..! Phew..!

...and after a bit of PB photo digging on this forum, this is what the logo looks like on some images - certainly a post buried within the forum that emanated from Australia shows that all the images are so marked. Yet, cruising the old posts all over the site, the vast majority are not so marked.

My thought is that the logo certainly gets in the way of the image visually, which is a real shame.

The whole thing is a bit strange......

I've just gone back through all ( well, almost all ) of my postings, checking the posted images. Since PB went anal, I have switched over to Flickr and have re-posted a lot of my pictures. There are still a few I missed or haven't yet gotten to, but none of the PB hosted pictures what that logo on them.

Now, back in March, 2016, I switched my PB account from free to an ad-free account, for $14.99 US per year. Even after PB pulled their stunt, my images were still visible. When that year ended, I went back to the free version. I wonder if this has any effect on my posted images.

Here is a photo that has just been uploaded to PB.

No logo!
