    Default Photobucket broken for images posted in threads

    FYI, I'm posting this because I just noticed several threads in the Marketplace that use images hosted on Photobucket. The images are broken and won't appear.

    I'm familiar with this issue because I used to use Photobucket to host images that I shared on other "third party" sites, such as Goodreads. Photobucket changed their policy and unless you have a premiere/paid membership, which has a pretty hefty monthly fee, they no longer permit the images to appear on other sites. I had to move all my images to Flickr.

    This is what you get:

    Thanks! Yes - this affected a lot of people here.

    Besides a new hosting site, another option is to upload photos directly to BN.

    Right...seems like that's the easiest way to do it. Unless perhaps they have the photos on multiple sites.

    Use imgur.com. Easier to use, no limits and it is free.
