    Photobucket Ripoff!

    Looks like Photobucket want to charge £400 if you want to post pics via them?  :110:

    Don't know why they don't just put adverts up to generate money - like most do.

    I've dumped them now and using another provider.  :002:

    We have an image hosting solution which we've used on a couple of our other Triumph sites.

    You see an example here:

    https://photos.tiger800.co.uk/

    We could probably implement it on here if there's enough interest. Essentially it would replace the current Gallery.

    Advantages are it has a large upload limit (around 5MB) plus bbcode links are instantly generated so you can add images to your posts.

    It's basically a rehash of our own image hosting solution which we have. As I say we'd need some interest to implement it but it is easiliy on par with Photobucket and in many ways exceeds them.   :038:

    Seems like it would be a good and efficient  `upgrade'   :028:

    The link looks good Admin.  :038:

    I'd certainly use it as I'm a fairly regular post-er of pics on this Forum.

    I have LOTS of Images on the Forum that are currently hosted on Photobucket.

    I was unaware of the revelation that Photobucket are going to stop hosting images
    for use on "third party sites" - such as the Trophy Owners Forum, withoit a paid subscription  :012:

    I find the current Forum Photo Gallery quite cumbersome to use,
    and would definitely be interested in the alternative image hosting solution suggested  :169:

    Recently been using IMGUR on another forum and it all seems pretty good and easy to link to the boards.

    I agree with you, very annoying as I also have a large number of pics held there.
