Here's my experience.

First off I kept getting messages to PAY to delete adverts ! ::)

Then I got messaged to enquire if I used PB to host third party [ forums / blogs ] platforms.

I ignored that for 2 weeks, then when I finally got sick of seeing it and hit "yes", the following day all images had been removed from forums. >:(

Very shortsighted as that now means I will no longer be visiting their site and getting bombarded with their customer's ads.

The old saying goes:  "If you aren't paying for the product, you ARE the product."   My guess is they were bleeding cash.

They don't get add revenue for hotlinked pics. If people aren't clicking the pics to go to PB site, the adds don't get seen and they make no money. It seems like they targeted the folks using their site to host on forums vs folks who have people go to PB to see the pics and thus see the adds for revenue.

Looking around the threads here on DTT you can certainly see that this very poor business decision on the part of Photobucket has really decimated the ability of our community to share and help.   >:(  Their service was getting worse and worse and more and more frustrating anyway because of the amount of memory their constant ads and banners used.

 I am currently in the process of downloading my pictures and when I have everything I want back where I can easily access it, control it, and use it as I want, I solemnly swear that P'bucket will never, ever get any money or business from me, period.  I sincerely hope their little business withers and dies.

Yep. Still works for me.

Does it, looks like your previous post pic was deleted.
I think it is mostly affecting those who have free accounts. They got me.

Yeah, they pulled all of mine the other day.

I've got a solid 10 years of pics from all over the world backed up on there. Seems I'll be paying them to keep access to them.
