Fellows! I need some help here. I was going through the thread to try and find "lost photos" to put in the proper place. However, something seems different in the thread: I can't find any blank places that used to show the photo bucket logo. Do any of you know what may have happened. I thought we were up to about 260 pages instead of 226. ???? Thanks, Jim

Hi Jim & Toot -
About a month ago Photobucket went through a major CTJE (Come To Jesus Event).
The short answer is they reversed their policy on charging and the photos are "published" and accessible again (!!!)
They sent an email to their users with the subject Line: Your photos have been Restored!
and a message body:
Hello,
We have listened to you, and significantly lowered the price of the Photobucket plan offerings.
For a limited time all of your 3rd Party Hosted Images have been restored. Please login to choose the plan that best fits your needs to continue hosting your images.
If a Free plan is all you want, we have it! Want 3rd Party Image Hosting for your forum, website, blog, or online store, we have it! Want more storage.....yes, we have that too!


If you google "photobucket" you'll find details on the whole sordid mess (the corp greed, the dawning realization, the final capitulation)
e.g. https://www.denverpost.com/2018/05/17/photobucket-image-hosting-plans/
https://www.redlinederby.com/topic/photobucket-has-a-change-of-heartkinda/3345


So, thats why all your pictures are back . But, I don't know why the page count would change - maybe when we went to the new forum software there was some refinagleing ( technical term)

Anyway, I was really REALLY glad to see the thread photos restored.

Didn't get the email, will have a look at that link, but it sounds like a temporary reprieve.
