i feel your pain, nearly all my threads from the past six years have imbedded photos from bucket.... i'll be going through the painstaking process of uploading my computer stored photos to the TDIclub server ... like most people i'd be more than happy to pay a reasonable amount for third party hosting but $400 ? honestly, this feels like a suicide move by photobucket or Heather Bresch took over as CEO

Since when do we have that? I must have missed it somehow...

About Photobucket, I don't mind if they decide to have all 3rd party links behind a pay wall but to do that without any notice and, even worse, to break the links to pictures that were uploaded and linked to other sites when it still was allowed is just weak.
I removed all my pics and deleted my account as soon as I found out what they've done.

Volkswagen survived dieselgate, will PB survive this? I doubt it.

The biggest problem with PhotoBucket and other sites like them has nothing to do with the storage. That is why accounts are cheap for storage, but cost $400 for third party sharing...its the bandwidth usage. Photobucket has to pay an internet provider for all the traffic in and out of their server. For instance, I upload a picture and share it on a third party site. The third party site now get a million visitors who view the photo. Do you know who pays for the data bandwidth used to view the photo a million times. Its not the third party, its PhotoBucket.

Stop complaining about PB, they cannot survive as a company with third party sharing...no company can survive without $$$ support.

That was their business model and the overwhelming advertising there now should cover it. No excuse for not notifying their members either, in advance. Did they really think individuals would cough up the 400? If they can't survive then go down the tubes. That is how it works.

on the blue bar below your username there is a link that says "photos", click that and that will bring you to the tdiclub picture server. Log in with your username and password upload your photos.

I don't understand why people don't use this.

That would also include the TDI Club.

There's nothing mandatory, but there are expenses, and be thankful there are no ads here on the TDI Club.

1) On the TDI Club home page there's a donate via PayPal button on the bottom left column.

2) User Control Panel on the bottom left column is Paid Subscription options.

ughhh.... well it looks like most of my almost 900 photos on photobucket are now missing.... I tried to move the entire bulk from my library to an album so i could download to my laptop and after several error messages and re-attempts at moving the photos I closed out the window and now it's showing just under 70 photos in my entire library all albums included

possibly the servers are so overwhelmed it's taking a long time to complete the process but i'm not holding out much hope

So many tutorials are now almost useless/a lot less useful, my brother got an E46 BMW and all the tutorials that I find for regular maintenance things where all Photobucket hosted images, all dead


Its a bit of a dick move, and also a great way to show lots of users why using third party hosting instead of the forums own hosting is a bad idea.

Before was the imgshack thing, all the old links just re-direct to their make an account and pay..

I created a tutorial on putting HID lights in the chevy 2015 and up HD series truck. It was my first PB usage. Yesterday I got the PB email on upgrading to the $399 account for third party hosting, etc. Nope, no way. I have the entire tutorial in a PDF. http://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/ho...-retrofit.html
I removed all pics and deleted my account and basically removed the entire tutorial since without pics it's useless. Now i just have a link to the tutorial.

A week and a half now after "deleting" my account, which they said would be permanently deleted on July 6, and the account still exists.

This ticks me off. I want it gone so they cannot use it as a stat to charge their advertisers.
