Photobucket has come back groveling...

I got an email from photobucket that says they are under new management and that they are sorry for screwing everybody and that they will restore everyone's images. They listed new prices for image hosting at $19.95 per year. Maybe this was their strategy all along who knows...?

Re: Photobucket has come back groveling...

Sound like a fair deal. Iíll probably do it.

My perspective.

How can you say you were screwed if they took away something they were giving you for FREE?

You can alway turn the channels or turn it off. You have the power. They canít ďmakeĒ you listen to it watch commercials.

I most always only watch recorded programming so I can skip commercials and when I do watch live the mute button is my friend

Re: Photobucket has come back groveling...

Actually if you have noticed I have been using PhotoBucket all through this time because I have been paying their &19.95 fee for the past five years. This was due to my exceeding their free disc space limit to store pictures. I have four tetrabytes of pictures stored on my computer; and I share some of those with you guys by way of PhotbBucket. I felt the prices was reasonable then and still do today. I never got hit with the extortion payment that they were charging because I was still under their old contract.

I did! All pics are there. I think 20 bucks a year is digestible. I do feel like they owe something to the peeps that lost their photos or the hassle for this period, or some sort of discount for the old members like a free year or at least 50 percent off the first year.....Something. Even tho it was free, they still wreaked havoc for many. Some action to show they apologize.

Re: Photobucket has come back groveling...

Anyone remember "New Coke"?

If they do this right they might just turn a horrible idea into a win for themselves.

For the record, I agree that $20 a year is reasonable. Too bad they had to infuriate millions of users getting to that.

Re: Photobucket has come back groveling...

Since I too have a multi-year build thread (or two) I will probably hand over the 20 bones to make it all good again...

Re: Photobucket has come back groveling...

Interesting. I have my Z pics, and a set of pics from another Z on my page. Have not had any contact from Photobucket. Wondering if the charge is based how much space being use up?

Re: Photobucket has come back groveling...

Interesting, I have not received any email from Photo Bucket.

The $20 sounds reasonable to get all my hosted pics back. So I went to Photo Bucket to check it out and there is no $20 plan listed that I could find. Only three paid plans, $60, $99 and $399 per year. The top $399 one is still the only one that allows 3rd party hosting.

I never had a paid account, maybe that's why I didn't get an email?

I also found this in there support information, so those that say it's still working for you it probably wont in 2019.

If you were a Plus Account subscriber in good standing as of June 1, 2017,
you will continue to have all the privileges you have enjoyed including 3rd
Party Hosting until December 31, 2018 as long as you maintain your
subscription.
