So I noticed that my banner is gone now because I have it hosted on photobucket. I've noticed others also with the same issues & yet some who have their banner hosted by photobucket is still up interestingly.

They have updated their terms of service as of a couple of days ago:

http://photobucket.com/terms

It says :

"The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time."

Which has costs associated with it of:

o Plus 50 Plan: 52 GB of Storage for $59.99 / Year. The Plus 50 Plan does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 100 Plan: 102 GB of Storage for $99.99 / Year. The Plus 100 Plan allows for unlimited image linking but does not allow 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 500 Plan: 500 GB of Storage and unlimited bandwidth for $399.99 / Year. The Plus 500 Plan allows for unlimited image linking and unlimited 3rd party image hosting.

so, $400 per year to use what was once free??

So , what do you use if not Photobucket ??

Yeah no good that, a lot of forums now have lots of PB's no show link now..

In answer to your question, flickr. Imgur, Google Picasa. or as I do and use my own server.

Imgur is pretty good. I wanted something with more privacy and tried ImageShack. Didn't realize that it would cost more than I though after the first free month to upload. Right now debating about switching to OneDrive since there's embedding options, or just paying monthly for ImageShack, and keeping all the photos I want to upload for those times.

I use imageshack.

my membership expired a while ago, and I never bothered to renew it..
..but I still have access to all my uploaded photos, which is nice.

ie: you pay for 'uploading' privileges..
..but once your photos are already uploaded then you always have access to them.
they don't disappear off the forums when your membership expires.

I was about to sign up on imgur this morning and they have changed their policy as well.
They wont allow posting hosted images to external sites and forums either.
The warning they had on their terms of service at sign up was quite threatening.

From Imgur

Stuff not to do

If someone else might own the copyright to it, don't upload it. Don't upload gore, "hate speech" (i.e. demeaning race, gender, age, religious or sexual orientation, etc.), or material that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, or that encourages violence or crime. Don't upload illegal content such as child porn or nonconsensual ("revenge") porn. Don't hotlink to adult content or to file-sharing, gambling, torrent, warez, or Imgur rip-off sites. Don't impersonate someone else. Also, don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network. If you do – and we will be the judge – or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on Imgur.com. We mean it

From Imgur FAQ:
"Are you unable to see your images on a forum?
We allow hotlinking on forums, but hotlinked images cannot be used as content for a website, including blog posts, avatars, site elements, and advertising. You can read our terms of service for more info. If you believe your site has been mistakenly blocked, please contact us for assistance."

https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/201569776-I-can-t-see-the-images

so as long as you aren't using it for your avatar or signature block you are okay to use it to share to the forums. [/url]

Agreed I am surprised they did this. I appreciate everyone's help in providing alternate solutions.

To my understanding you can host and send links to the costume judges so they can see your Photobucket images, you cannot "embed" them on websites and forums for free anymore.
