I just got an email from Photobucket to Upgrade my account so I can view my images on 3rd party websites like Madman entertainment.

But when I clicked on the upgrade It would charge me $360 for unlimited access to view images on 3rd party websites...which is probably a yearly rate.

So is Photobucket really no longer free image hosting site anymore?
If I don't upgrade my Avatar images would probably be blocked.

But so far my Avatars haven't been linked directly to other 3rd party sites...so I'm not sure when photobucket would put a block on me yet.
But I've notice some users here have been blocked already.

So I was wondering is there any other free image hosting sites I can use other than photobucket, because I might have to ditch my photobucket account if they start charging users.

So far my Avatar is still up at time of posting so I don't know when my avatar will be blocked.

I should probably do something about all the broken Photobucket avatars at some point, hey.

I haven't had any problems with my photobucket account. I'm still accessing it as normal without any charges and my avatar is hosted thru it.

Yeah its funny Stormo is clearly infected...but I'm still OK....yay! LOL
But we all have to ask Stormo how many images is stormo really using that's hitting the 3rd party viewing limit.

I think I'm not infected because I don't go over the limit with my images and also my avatar size is small enough to not be infected and also I don't spreading all my images around to multiple 3rd party websites and going completely overboard.
