Today's email from them:

We would like to offer a tailored plan for users just like you - our Premium plan for $99.99 / year.

The Premium plan will provide 3rd party hosting for non-commercial use on your forums, blogs, and personal websites*. Additionally, you will be able to store up to 300,000 photos.

We are working on some exciting changes for 2018. This is our exclusive introductory price and this offer will expire in 7 days.


The asterisk didn't show anything on the email itself, so I had to click on "premium plan" to get more info. (http://photobucket.com/p500/ is the link for me)

So: *Commercial usage dictates selling products or services on your websites or commerce websites such as Amazon and Ebay

Now, they point out this is only 27 cents/day. Sure. Okay. Of course I'm already paying for SmugMug since this option wasn't made available all last year when people might have wanted it. Methinks PB has realized some errors of its ways.

And yes, I do have sooooo many photos still linking back to PB. Every time I looked at the possibility of moving the pix to SmugMug (or anywhere), the concept of changing thousands of links, everywhere, crushed my spirit. I do have all my pix, so if PB decided to wipe them clean, it wouldn't kill me too much. I was able to zip and download them all before everything went pear-shaped.

And I remember last year thinking "OK, I'm paying, what, $40-$50/year? Something like that? I'd be willing to pay a little more to keep the same stasis." Except the only thing available was the stinkin' $400 option, so I left.

Part of me really still wants that fixed. You know? Part of me feels like, okay, for $100 I can get all those links back. (Probably.) But now it's a principle, too. How badly do I want to give that back to them? Their tactics left a sour taste in my mouth.

If this had been available last year, before their ransom tactics, I might've sighed and sucked it up. Now? I'm very unhappy with them. And I honestly don't know if it's worth it to get those links back, because an awful lot of that was Sims and City of Heroes and I'm pretty sure nobody's looking up those old pictures.

Have you seen this image on the internet?
