For some unexplained reason, all my Photobucket pictures that disappeared a while back have shown back up today.

All of them!
Maybe 3000 pictures!

All my old postings now have the pictures back.

Does anyone know what's up?

Apparently they got worried about everyone bailing out, and have gone back to free accounts (sort of), but with ads aimed at anyone who clicks on one of your pics/videos. If you don't want people to get hammered with popup ads, it will cost you, as will 3rd party hosting.

My thousands of pictures I have posted on several forums are third party hosting.
They are currently view-able with no cost to me.
That will probably change as I have no intention of paying them $399 ransom money.

While they are still up, anyone can see a whole lot of pictures of my work by clicking on my name "Zulu" and then clicking on "search user's posts".

One would have to be pretty bored on a rainy day to do that but they are there for now. :P

Don't be surprised if you get a bill from them one fine day. :wink:

Also, I did go back to a couple of your earliest posts and discovered that AdBlock Plus (an addon for FireFox browser) blocks all those adds they wanted to throw at me - 24 of them in fact. :lol:
