Today, I say a tearful goodbye to a friend. Photobucket, my pic-hosting partner-in-crime of over 10 years. A decade of collecting and storing JP pics from practically every era, then sharing them here for all to see. Over 2,000 pics in one account alone, and now I can no longer share them here. Not without having to cough up $40/month, that is.
Oh, Photobucket. Up until now, you had been nothing but fantastically reliable and user-friendly to me. You were there during all my high and low times here on the 'Board AND on the Metal God's Quorum. I could post the same pics of the band countless times, and you worked tirelessly to keep them displayed and showed my JP pics for what they were (and still are) - awesome as hell, no matter what. Unfortunately, I can no longer walk the Information Superhighway with you. In fact, with your new monthly contribution requirement, you may as well BE committing Information Superhighway robbery! How COULD you, Photobucket?!? After ALL this time, now you're gonna stab me in the back with THIS?!? Not cool. :'(
*sigh* I pains every fiber of my being to write this, but I must write it. I'm sorry, Photobucket, but our partnership must cease.
