Some info I dug up...
You may have noticed several threads on here are now broken with recent Photobucket changes where users need to allow hotlinking in their profile with $$$. This Chrome plug-in will work around that:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. - Ronald Reagan #40 (1911 - 2004)

Here's the questions you must ask:


How long will it be before Photobucket "fixes" the Chrome work around? Do you still trust Photobucket with your images? Is it worth it?

I thought the Photobucket situation was not affecting images previously loaded but only those newly uploaded or linked??

It's everything. I haven't uploaded any new photos in three or four years, yet I got their emails looking for $$$s.
