I agree Mike.

Mike why do you not load your pictures and videos to your Blues Hands site and not deal with them any more. Maybe your son and daughter could up load them for you.

 

I can do that....it's just a huge pain and with 9000+ pics.....I don't have much interest in doing it.  Everything I do now is on video and then on youtube.

As long as you expect free hosting, expect to get screwed.  Photobucket/etc don't make any money from advertising with 3rd party hosting...

I didn't know they had killed some pro accounts.

Mine was never touched.

Maybe I just lucked out.

 

I would have been pissed too.

 

But consider, things change, companies make mistakes, just look at the chevy corvair, or ford pinto. They killed people.

Facebook was sharing your personal info with anyone who paid them, and still are, that is how they make their money.

Nothing lasts forever, so what happens if flicker gets bought out, or just goes belly up?

 

Hmmm....now that you mention it......I don't think my links died, but I wasn't sure that I could see mine because I was always logged in.  Someone made an extension which I used for awhile, then chrome updated and it allowed the links to be seen.  They sent me an email saying that I'd be grandfathered with the current account until Dec of this year.  If I can renew at the same deal as I have now, I will...but it they expect me to pay much more, I'm just going to let it die.  I never saw any info that said the pro accounts were not touched.....so maybe I got caught up in everyone else grief.  Either way....their platform sucks now with all the ads on it and it's really frigging slow.  The video links are never good and the audio/vid sync is off on the ones I've checked.  There's been old threads I bring up that say the links don't work anymore.  PB changed something causing the link to die.  I have to go back and try to find it and relink it.  I know I never changed anything.  I don't really want to kill all the threads I've made and all the pics/vids I've posted, but there's no way I'm going back to using PB.  They cost me money......but if I post my content to youtube, I get paid.

YouTube seems to have done alright without ads in their 3rd party hosting. Maybe a banner ad above picts would have been a less scam-ish way for PB to have made money?
