Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hello, has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20th, images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other 3rd party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Thank you

Haha well it's better this way so you don't have to deal with these consequences but unfortunately many other users do.

The instructions provided above is a temporary fix that we can offer at the moment to help restore your images until we have a more concrete solution soon. Moving forward, we highly recommend that you use the Attachments tool within "My Settings" and your Projects to host your images on our site here. We can always increase the storage space to better accommodate your pictures.

If you have further questions or concerns about this, please let us know - we're here to help you. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
