Photobucket.com - you suck

#1

Post by golf_lover44 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 5:52 pm

When I got back into this hobby a fellow collector told me about Photobucket.com, a free site where he posted pictures of his available traders. I did the same and have used it extensively for several years.

In 2017 I got blocked trying to upload a new trader. I contacted them and was told that my account was frozen since I didn't have a paying account. So I said I'll just leave things as they are and look for an alternative. Than Harvey flooded my house and this was forgotten.

Early this week I get an email from them saying that "Your account has been restricted because you are exceeding the free storage limit. For your reference, Your account is limited to the lesser of 2.5GB or 250 images" All of my photos take up less than 250 megabytes of space; however, I have over 1000 pictures up there - traders, show photos, photos of new can releases, etc. The rest of their email has the tone of start deleting your pictures until you have less than 250 up here, or pay up (or else).

I've started looking into other photo storage sites, but the few that I've seen so far are not as easy to work with as Photobucket. Anybody have any suggestions?

TIA.
