This is a very important issue for billions of pages and pic links around the web.
Photobucket have not made any friends.. But no such thing as a free lunch..
Sadly many long standing forum threads will have been rendered worthless or
significantly devalued if the originally linked pics many dating back years are blocked.
Posters simply will not bother to re-upload or edit hundreds and possibly thousands of pictures and links.. I wouldn't
I've never used photobucket it so am luckier than some and have my own webspace..
However it's worth pointing out on here that after you reach the minimum post count you can
add up to five
images per post and they are stored by autoforums..
The FAQ this may help..
Insight Central: Honda Insight Forum - FAQ: Reading and Posting Messages
Posted jpg format pictures can currently be upto 2000x1000 pixels and max 2mb each.. However for forum users sanity
and our bandwidth I suggest more normal 640x480 or 800x600 and max of 100kb is more reasonable.
So please use editing software to resize and compress pictures appropriately.
If we kick the arse out it by uploading hundreds of huge pics autoforums might pull that rug out.
Pictures stored have a unique link which can also be accessed from other threads and posts..
Again use that sparingly or it may get scrapped..
The attached example pictures of my latest conversion are 640, 800 and 1024 pixels wide respectively.
