Photobucket now (since July) charging for 3rd party hosting

Post by Yurt » 04 December 17 5:29 pm

I only discovered this when someone was trying to solve a puzzle of mine which relied on an image hosted by Photobucket. Somewhere a few months ago they decided to charge a ridiculously high fee for third party hosting. I never got an email. So a few of my caches are looking a bit off with this image appearing instead.

(edit - image tags don't seem to work)

Some more info:

I've moved the image for that puzzle to Imgur and it works but I've noticed other caches have background pics that don't work now.

Just a heads-up. I searched the forums but didn't find anything so apologies for old news if that's the case.
