Hmmm. I've just been on Photobucket to post a few photos of Gaydon yesterday. Although the photos are still there, when I click on IMG, nothing happens! :x

Plenty of alternatives,what annoys me the most is the lack of warning.

So has everyone who use photobucket been effected? I ask because so far I'm not having any issues with my photos, they all still appear in my forum posts?

effect is based on number of views i feel, they are going down the list, largest to the smallest.

10 million plus images remember.

Who knows what the end outcome other than a considerable amount of coin off their share value, advertising costs and customer base.
