Good news for images across the internet!

I just checked and a lot of our old threads have been fixed.

Now they are talking about $24.99 annual service fees instead of $399.00.

It's a shame it took this long but I am glad they fixed it. Still, a lot of damage has been caused along the way.

Yes, they killed a lot of sites photos and a lot of people pulled or deleted their photos.  I view them as low lifes and scum and wouldn't go back if they were paying me to go back.

I am glad they restored the photos of those who stayed around and the new fee is sensible.
Thanks for the heads up PW.

Photo who?
I am alright with imgur. They had their chance.
What a great day to be outside.

Photbucket can KMA.  I recently received an email from them asking for my new credit card so they could renew my subscription.  KMA was pretty much the message I sent back to them.

  The bucket can suck it.

I never deleted my stored photos.  I did try to see if they would post.  They do.  That said,  I have moved on, and use Picturetrail now.
