Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hello,

Photobucket.com has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20 images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other third party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Photobucket Terms of Use http://photobucket.com/terms

Thank you

I got this and copied it from a the Trans Am Country forum that I belong to. Looks like at least a temp fix for the photobucket rip off.

Copioed from TAC website - I cannot take credit for this, but saw this on LS1tech. I tried this on my thread and it worked! I'm sure it will be only a matter of time before they disable that too, but for now it works. I copied this text below:

Another PB fix - not sure how long this one will stay around. Put "~original" (without the quotation marks) after the .jpg at the end of your image link.

The photo below was added today via photobucket. To see how the link is modified you can hit quote on my post and it will show in the link text.


2000 RC51 - stock owned since new 5/2000
2006 RC51 - 2nd owner purchased 4/2015 with 1400 miles
1996 CBR900RR - mild resto/mod - done spring 2012
1990 Honda VFR - original stock owned since 1991
1975 Kawasaki S3 - restored in 2004-5 (sold 10-17)
2003 Kawasaki ZX7R - bought 10/2018
2007 Honda Interceptor 25th Anniversary purchased 7/2014
1972 Honda Mini Trail - 1st restoration in 1992, and 2016 restored to like new condition. (sold 2/18)

Thanks. Seen this fix being brought up on other sites too. Hopefully it will stay around a good while, though I've already seen PB close the door on a couple other home-brewed fixes to the damage they did.

I've been giving Imgur.com a try lately as a Photobucket replacement. We'll see.

Thank you for that workaround info. And looking forward to Sub's feedback on Imgur, too.

But it makes me (and all of us!) so pissed to think of all my pics in "how-to" and other informational posts on various forums over the past 10 years are blanked out due to PB.

Grrrrrrr...grrrrrrr.....

Imgur has strict terms of service against using it to share images on other sites. They have been known to completely block websites from using their images.

Terms of Service - Imgur

If you're posting images here, use the attachment manager.

If you want to get the pictures back I think the text of the link could be edited to add "~original" as described above and the picture will reappear. Try it by doing a quote of a post with a bad picture and edited the photo link.

This fix does work (but not sure for how long). I tried it on an old post in the for sale section for the rear axle chain adjusters I was involved with getting built. Check this link out...

Adding the ~original can work but we are unsure how long it will last.

We can help the transition of images if you are hosting on another site, but that can have its own issues as well.

Moving forward, if you are posting images here, use the attachment manager.
