photobucket has changed it's rules and you can no longer use it for hosting pics unless you pay a monthly premium

any other good hosts that we can now use ???

Yet it allowed me to post pics of my tractor on a forum yesterday :?

I wonder if they are randomly cutting accounts out. I must save my pics from there!

I've just uploaded a new photo onto photobucket and linked to it in another thread on this forum, no problem at all - YET!

Must say I already was pretty done with photobucket.
So no good alternative ?

Here's a list of image hosting sites: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_i ... g_websites

I've heard of people using Imgur but I cannot recommend it because it seems they also do not like 3rd party hosting (from their terms of service):

"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." https://imgur.com/tos

I don't know about Flickr. They're owned by Yahoo and I've not found information on their policy on 3rd party hosting yet.
