Imgur Update


I was checking another message board site's support board to see if they had anything to say about PB, and found a link to another thread about Imgur. Thought I should give a heads up on this as well.

Re: Imgur Update


I removed them from the image hosting list.

Funny story, one of the pictures hosting sites I visited now has a banner on it saying:
quote:

Welcome Photobucket Refugees


They didn't make the list because their "free service" is just a 30 day trial period, after which you have to pay, but I still thought it was funny. emoticon

I'm guessing they're still cheaper than Photobucket, even after their trial period.

Yes, Imgur's TOS do not encourage forum use... also take a good look at the rights they demand.

I don't remember the exact numbers because they have five tiers (all allow hotlinking) but their most expensive business plan ran about $15 a month.

Re:


I know what site that is. They do not get very good ratings. I looked that them, too. I know someone who has pictures stored there and have explored her account. I didn't like how they are organized . . . . but maybe it was her.

Pastor are you still thinking about making a list of "PAY" photo hosting sites? emoticon

I am shying away from that for awhile. I might do it but it has a very low priority.

Re: Imgur Update


Well I got tired of looking...I settled on a PAY site...FOTKI. I bought the lowest membership they had...Premium 100 and I paid, $24 for a year. Could have gone cheaper if I went 3 years....but wanted to see how I liked it. I have 100GB of storage....
I had 30.8 GB of storage on Photobucket, and since 2004 when I became a member, I have used 2.6GB. And I have 16195 total files there. And I PAID more, $29.99 a year...since 2007, so I am pretty POSITIVE I will not use up the 100GB!

But the best thing! AND Pastor you can remove this post if you don't think it's within the TOS...I am touting one company.

With a simple request to their Customer Desk.....give them my name and pass (easy one made for this)...they transferred ALL..every single photo I had over to Fotki from Photobucket.
Now...they all came as their own album, NOT nested into sub albums...but they ARE ALL in alphabetical order and I DON'T have to reload, 16 THOUSAND plus! SO AM VERY HAPPY....
(P.S....if you do this. Any videos you have among your photos will come over as not loading properly. I uploaded my few to Youtube) (OH GEEZ! There I go name dropping again!) emoticon
