So, Photobucket descends to new depths from their previously achieved depths. :p

Spectre and I had this conversation not four months ago :|


I also suggest you get everything off Photobucket while you're at it. They're likely next. Imgur's likely to stay around simply because the social aspect is providing funding; enough funding that they don't care about being a free photo host.
And boy am I glad I took my pics, torched the account and ran...Any guesses on the lottery numbers or something I should invest on? :p

Yarp, but be careful, imgur do not allow hot linking images they host according to their TOS.

So yeah, it works for now, but that could change really fast...

Stuff not to do
If someone else might own the copyright to it, don't upload it. Don't upload gore, "hate speech" (i.e. demeaning race, gender, age, religious or sexual orientation, etc.), or material that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, or that encourages violence or crime. Don't upload illegal content such as child porn or nonconsensual ("revenge") porn. Don't hotlink to adult content or to file-sharing, gambling, torrent, warez, or Imgur rip-off sites. Don't impersonate someone else. Also, don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network. If you do ? and we will be the judge ? or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on Imgur.com. We mean it.
Source.

Yeah, I recently saw that last part in their last TOS revision. I've got 10K pics hosted there and I'm looking for somewhere else to move to as of last month.

It sucks, I was starting to move away from ArmedCats and the combination transloader-plugin for Chrome and app for smartphone made it ideal.

Oh well, there is a reason why I pay for my domain name and a host, I get control over that.
