It’s a photo bucket issue. It has nothing to do with LJ’s. You will have to take it up with photobucket.

Sure… send them a bunch of cash so your images can be linked to from third party sites. Won’t fix other peoples images though.

It is impacting LJ because posted images don’t show – and there are direct links from LJ to support photobucket. I’m thinking LJ should make the arrangement or not allow it.

Others thought???

And every other web site on the planet. It’s photobucket, period, and there isn’t anything LJ or any other web site around the globe can do about it.

I agree, HoneyDew. Asked LJs to do that some months ago.

Hey Brad – looks like you got some computer tech background – and you know that most of the top tier websites don’t have this issue – this issue is to be expected of more enthusiast sites I’ll grant that. But LJ has almost 1/4 million participants as advertised.

Since LJ is part of the VerticalScope.com portfolio I was really hoping to point to them for advancement in this area.

And to be very clear – I really appreciate this site and the participation and involvement by those (like yourself) that have invested time and efforts to encourage and share.

There’s really nothing that can be done at this point. The photos from Photobucket are posted by users and most forums allow third party photo posts. Photobucket screwed a ton of forums and websites when they made this change a few months back.

-- But where does the meat go?

LJ doesn’t own the images, why should LJ pay an extortion price for other people’s pictures?

Only one way to fix it. Everyone who posted photos here on LJ’s pay 399.99 to Photo Bucket

Completely untrue. Every site that allowed third party hosting of pictures were effected, regardless of size. Would you consider PC Magazine an ‘enthusiast’ site? Here are some other views from around the planet:

Photobucket Is Holding People's Photos For Ransom – Buzzfeed

Photobucket broke a decade’s worth of online images, and other tales – Vox

Has Photobucket Painted Itself Into a Corner? – Technewsworld

Photobucket says photo-f**k-it, starts off-site image shakedown – TheRegister

... a quick google will turn up hundreds more …

Cheers,
Brad

I use imgur.com or post direct from my PC. This is not an LJ issue.

“Photobucket Is Holding People s Photos For Ransom”

My issue is that the link is still being displayed for photobucket – like on this discussion post and LJ keeps displaying photos that are referencing photobucket (that have a URL to photobucket.) I didn’t know about the pb policy change but it doesn’t change the point that LJ can do something about it.

If this is the biggest worry in your life, crack open a cold one and be thankful.
