Hi Guys, Not sure how many have noticed but photos blocked by Photobucket are appearing once more in your posts. It appears that the new CEO wasted no time in reversing the unpopular decision (back in May) and has very quietly restored access to millions of photos around the world   so those of you who had lost access to your photos and videos, Its worth getting into your account and recovering them while you can !  From what I'm reading it looks like after a short period of time you may get asked to pay a subscription to continue using the service albeit a much lower price than the ransome they asked for before. Personally even if you are happy to host them via Photobucket I would still make sure you recover a copy to your own machine in case things change again in the future.  I will continue to try and recover all of Bob's remaining Photos if I can identify them as his account wont be able to be re activated if they DO start charging
Hope this helps some of you who lost access to your own photos

Cheers

Matt

I deleted all photos from Photobucket then deactivated my account. I have the originals of every photo I ever put on there anyway. 

I have no intention of going back to them. They shot themselves in the foot, they can live with that.
