Crap, Photobucket!  
Apologies for how my journal looks right now. Most of the images in my sidebar and all my mood theme images are missing and replaced with an ugly-ass graphic from PB.

Here's what it's all about...

'Cause how dare I post images on another site! *heavy sigh*
This looks like PB is telling me pay up or screw you! Thanks a lot!
See, since I was easing up on my usage of my Photobucket accounts anyway (I have 4), I stopped paying and let them all revert to free accounts. Bleh.

So I guess I'll have to re-upload all the missing images over at Slickpic, which I do pay for (because it's way better than stupid PB). Grrrrr! It'll probably take me a few days though, so please be patient with me!

Edit: Crap, crap, CRAP! I just checked my other comms and they look fine EXCEPT for spn_locations!!! The pages of locations for Seasons 1-7 have ALL THE IMAGES MISSING!!!!! Friggin' hell! I do NOT need this with VanCon approaching fast!!!! Dammit all! Looks like I'm going to have to pay for the upgrade anyway, because I do NOT have time to re-upload all those many, many caps and map images to Slickpic. Crap! This sucks!!! >:[

And the price for getting the images back is $40 a month??? Crap! It's their highest plan! WTH???

Jesus hun, that's EXPENSIVE as hell!!! *hugs* But the work that would go into the changing of image urls etc is a nightmare even thinking about it *hugs some more*

I know!!! It sucks out loud. Of course the only way to get rid of their blocking the images is to pay on their highest plan. And all their plans are paid yearly, not monthly. So you're stuck paying for a whole year. That means $400! o.O

Yeah, I've started the process of reuploading the location caps, but man! what a time-consuming process! And the coding will take forever! I so don't have time for this! *cries*

*BIG BUG HUGS* I know how much work it is, I can;t believe you're doing it all again. xx

Do you have images in a LJ folder?

Exactly! They've been giving me nothing but grief over the past few years. Which is why I'm almost exclusively using SlickPic now.

Are you talking about Scrapbook here on LJ? There's no way Scrapbook would have enough room for all the caps I have to reupload.

That's so unfair!!!!! So sorry to hear that. :(
With all the hard work that you do, it would be horrible to have to do it all over again. :(

Thus has been my 2017. *sigh*
It'll be so time-consuming and downloading then reuploading all the location caps is really eating away at my internet data, so that sucks, too. It'd be ideal to pay, but $400 for a year??? OMG So expensive! I just don't know if we can do it. :(

*huggles* This sucks so bad. I hate when people/sites try to take you for everything.

The thing that gets me is that if you're with a site as long as I've been with Photobucket, you get sucked into a false sense of security. It'll always be there, it'll always be the same.... NOPE! They can make changes, horrible changes at any time. Even disappear entirely. Then you're stuck. *sigh*

You gotta love those so called upgrades.

Wait. I'm not supposed to be using PB to host pics that I put on LJ? What the hell do they think I'm going to be doing with it? :-/
raloria - Screencapping Goddessraloria on June 24th, 2017 11:45 am (UTC)
Just sharing the links to the images with friends where they're not posted anywhere, apparently.
Total suckage!

What a bunch of crooks. They've got a damn cheek.
I hate Photobucket anyway. It's painfully slow and riddled with Pop-ups.

Ugh, that's so expensive. It's unfair that they charge so much!

I have one of their older plans that isn't available anymore, and I pay automatically each year. So far, I haven't noticed any changes, but I don't know if that'll hold, or not.
