Hello,

Photobucket.com has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20 images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other third party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Thank you

Noticed that last week, and a real shame as I found it the simplest to use with the provided link for forums. Looking for some other options that do not cost money.

Hey there,

We recommend that Members use the site to host their images.
Though we are working on a fix for this photobucket issue.
We do not have anything to announce yet, but we will let you guys know once we have and update.

How are you working on a fix for photobucket when it is a photobucket issue not a forum issue? This problem is not limited to ehmac.

Our development team are working on something that may fix it. Unfortunately that's as much information that we have now.

Wonderings - he meant that we are working to fix the broken image links on the site that is from Photobucket. As Niall mentioned, our development team is still working on restoring those.

In the meantime - moving forward, we highly recommend the community to use Attachments tool within your Go Advanced option (can also be seen in your User CP), Pictures & Albums to host your images on our site here. We can always increase the storage space to better accommodate your pictures if need be.

Thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter.


Cheers,
Natalie

Looks like Photobucket is letting people use watermarked images for free.

Can you provide an example for us? Do you have a photobucket account where the images are being watermarked?
