I can't get my pictures to load. I went on their site and looked at their posts for problems and issues and they have a posting saying they had a server go down and they are having to rebuild it and it will take awhile. They also said no data was lost but it will be a few days before they are up 100% again.

For me, Photobucket has just been R-E-A-L-L-Y slow recently, and sometimes it refuses to upload anything. I thought it might have been my computer, but I've been hearing about other peoples' difficulties on this and other websites recently, so I gues it's THEM and not me.

Get a free flickr account. IMHO, it's significantly better than PB due to it's UI and speed. I never touch my 3 PB accounts anymore.

I have never had any problem with PB and enjoy using it. It DOES sound like they may be doing maintenance, but I think I will start a Flickr account as a back up. Thanks.

screw photobucket just host them on here and just right click on each picture " copy image url" and use the img tags.... i HATE 99% of those photohosting sites. if you want your pictures to remain on a forum use their hosting on site because what if photobucket sells out?what if the person deletes their account and the pictures are usefull? then every single picture you posted will not show so i am highly against it because of how many times i ran into said issue...

Do you mean do it as an attachment and then an image? There is a limit on the amount of attachments you can have. I hope I have this wrong because I am very interested in the way you post your pics. Thanks.

My PB page is PAINFULLY slow and sometimes locks up completely, likely because I have far exceeded the bandwidth for a free account. Editing is where I have the most problems, so now I edit my pics pre-upload to save time.

Now, this is a touchy subject for me, as I seem to have a problem of some kind EVERY time I'm dealing with PB.
Thanks for the flickr info, XOsPapa, I'll definitely have to check it out.:thumbsup:
