    It might, I'll loose a few pics along the way, but I like many have them backed up somewhere. There's other hosting sites!!
    Take a kid hunting its more rewarding than shooting an animal yourself!!

    Sounds more like 'random' to me.

    Botophucket has been pissing me off for months, so I'm seeing this as a good thing. It's the incentive I needed to move on.
    Pretend hunter.

    Just checked an all my photo's and links seem to be still working. On this site and the few others that I have checked. I have no subscription and it has always been free. I have couple hundred Pic's on their site. Haven't really had a Problem using Photobucket. AdBlocker made a huge difference.

    I don't see any popups when on Photobucket. Try Adblocker. I don't get popups anywhere. Except a couple news sites that a box popsup and says that they have detected a blocker. And to please add them to my white pages. (Unblocks their site only)

    If you can see this Pic then my Free PhotoBucket is still working

    Mine is working ok too. It has some 3rd party issues what ever that is. Some are saying if they want back in, PB wants $400.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    The worst day slinging lead is still better than the best day working.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Mine are toast now. If anyone wants to look at what happened as an example, check out my trailcam thread on the Mainland hunting page.

    Guessing this means any picture I have posted in any thread will never be seen.

    I am not going to pay them a dime. I will go back and edit some of my threads and link to the pics using an alternate service when I get some time.

    Don't know why, they haven't Nuked mine yet as well, as they are still active.
    Figured I would be noticed when I Copied/Downloaded to my puter, all 6 Gig of pics I currently use for HotLinking on Photbucket, Just to have them all in one folder. Been hotlinking these photo's to other sites/forums since 2005. Be almost almost impossible to manually find and relink to all the sites my pic's are now showing on, when I end up having to hotlink from a new host. Need to see if I can find some software that will make the job easier.
