IMAGE shock! - Photobucket changed Terms. Alternatives?

IMAGE Content Lost! - Photobucket. Alternatives?

 

PHOTOBUCKET have changed their Terms of Usage - causing this site to lose hundreds of images.

- I am considering how to cope with this, to restore the images on this website. It looks like it will take many weeks

LOOKS LIKE ...

I may need to find another $100 a year to get the Photobucket images back

 

The GEI site already costs me $45 a month for hosting - plus all the time I invest here

 

OR

FIND ANOTHER IMAGE HOSTING SERVICE
- I am looking for one now.

 

(I don't need this sudden surprise today - i think they should have given more warning

- or provide a cheaper option.)

 

In fact, this p/sses me off !

Hmm. This is affecting everyone globally. I always figured how "free" stuff works. There's no such thing as a free lunch. No free image hosting exists (on a long enough time frame).

I am afraid you are right.!

They probably planned this SHOCK many months ago.

 

(BTW, I may buy the hosting, and then ask for some donations

But I am trying to find a temporary solution to get more images back)

16 Free Image Hosting Websites for Your Photos

 

Reviews of the Best Image Hosting Websites

Updated May 17, 2017

A good free image hosting website will give you a convenient place to store your photos so you can access and share them quickly and easily.

Some of these free image hosting websites also include basic editing capabilities like resizing, cropping, and adding effects. It can be a great way to share to your photos with others.

Each image hosting website works a little bit differently so be sure to read the specifics before deciding on one. You'll want to consider the storage size, file size, types of files you can upload, and ease of uploading your photos.

Some additional features you'll come across included allowable direct linking, image galleries, HTML links, editing features, and privacy settings.

Thanks, T.I.

 

I will probably pass the hat for some small donations - and offer something useful in return.

 

But first, I want to examine the options - using this thread

You appreciate what this means?

 

What I've heard is that the cabal is running short of cash. So the controlled opposition websites are now screeching for donations presumably cos they are not getting funded by the cabal as they had been done in the past. I don't mean you Dr B.

 

But apparently Ben Fulford is kinda gone. And recently on his website, he's been calling for donations, explaining that the evil Jap gov is blocking him from the money he collects from his subscribers. So one of his subscribers very kindly volunteered to collect money from his subscribers to pass on to Ben.

 

Plus I note that he recently came up with some cock and bull story about a very spiritual Native American needing $50K for his legal fees. So what has this very spiritual guy done? He used the shot gun he just happens to keep in the boot of his car to defend himself against an attacker by shooting the guy in the leg.

 

Now let's think of a very spiritual guy. Can you imagine Sadhguru stashing a shotgun in his car or bullock cart? And even if he did, why would he shoot a man in the leg when he can just as easily shoot at the ground to scare the guy away? Imagine the karma he may incur

 

I also note that Poofness is calling for donations.

 

And Alexandra Bruce

 

Yup, it's shaping up as Clif High has predicted - the cabalists are short of cash and this will help expose their secrets because they do not have the funds to bribe people the way they have done. The recipients of their largess will get mightily pissed off and show their displeasure by revealing the secrets they are meant to guard. YAY!

 

What's more, the minions will not be so generously paid as they have been done in the past. Now if you have been merrily selling out humanity for that bowl of pottage, you might not be so happy to continue to do so for half or a quarter bowl of said pottage. LOL! So you NWO minions / shills / trolls here better make a note that your usual salary gets paid cos there's a good chance they may be delayed or suffer some mysterious shortfall. Don't get screwed by your bosses - demand the agreed payment at the agreed times or give them an ultimatum

Dealing with the unexpected....

I LOST, at least temporarily, many hundreds of hours of my image-work - a disaster that will take time & energy to recover from.

 

: MAKATI PRIME.Com :

 

SADLY, my image hosting service has changed its terms of service - I am investigating alternatives,

while I work to restore images. Please be patient

 

(EXCERPT from a private message):

 

Hi XXX,

. . .

Unfortunately, I lost many of the images here, and it may be several days before I start recovering them.

. . .

I may not become a paying member on Photobucket, because the very sudden way they changed their Terms of service,

and effectively blackmailed people to pay them, destroys my trust in them. Also. I always found the PB site clunky to use.

Perhaps I will join for one month, to get as many images as possible, and them leave for good. Meantime, I am seeking

a better alternative. (see: IMAGE Thread )

. . .

Best Regards,

I am still in a state of shock that PB would do this so suddenly - they must have run out of cash.

Perhaps they were getting some payments from the CIA or someone (not joking - remember Project Mockingbird),

and those payments suddenly stopped, and they were driven to do this, to meet their own payroll.

Whatever the reason, this is a major, MAJOR break of trust with their customers, and I cannot simply accept it!

 

Had they explain it ahead of time, and offered more than one option, I would have been more happy to roll with it.

 

This seems to be like corporate suicide, and there are some nasty organizations (the Lie Stream media?) we should just let go

This is such a frustrating issue - there is a huge history of posts on this forum with reference to charts and images. Of course the quick way is just to pay up - but I'm against that in principle. Photobucket will know that there are businesses out there relying on their service so no doubt it will probably work for them.

I'm wondering if it is feasible to use a cloud service, such as Microsoft Onedrive?



I've tried to embed a picture of a lotus flower from onedrive here but it comes up with an error;
