You may notice that photos are missing from postings at this and my other blogs.
There is a major problem at Photobucket as reported on downdetector.com
Photos linked to a Photobucket account, like the ones on this blog, may be displaying a placeholder that says “Owner moved or deleted this photo.” Well, that’s not true. Photobucket accounts still display the photos in the accountholder’s library where photos are uploaded. The problem is that there are also placeholders saying the photos are deleted.
I’ve tried to copy the links so I can add the media again here at WordPress but the fields where the links display cannot be clicked in.
About the only thing working right now at Photobucket are the pop-ups advertising more expensive services and third party hosting.
I will report back on how Photobucket responds to my email.
The reason why photos are missing is that Photobucket wants $400 a year for subscribers who want to do Third Party Hosting, such as posting photos to a blog using photos from the Photobucket albums.
I plan to cancel the Photobucket account and upload the photos to WordPress instead. I’ve been using Photobucket for 13 years and was satisfied with the service despite the slowness. In the past year it has deteriorated.
