Yep, have had several for my different PB accounts like that, loved to 10% discount as if that's going to make any difference, $30 or $40 maybe people would have taken it up but not what they are asking for

Site better? It want a couple of weeks ago - still contend with pop ups and adverts galore (and unusable).

Cheers photobucket for the generous offer of $15 off $400..but I think I’ll pass.

As far as I am concerned Photobucket has done me a favour. I always found it a bit of a pain to add photos as it took so long. However The team on this forum have done an excellent job on the new photo system it is a joy to use. It is completely hassle free and so easy to use it is encouraging me to take more photos as my project progresses.

Well done to the the forum admin team - Thanks photobucket for showing us there is an easier way!

I've been hearing that Photo***** has plugged this hole and that the published fixes, and the one I've applied here, are no longer working. Can anyone confirm this?

I've just had a look at a few threads, and *at the moment* they did seem to be working. Whether that will continue is another matter, of course.

I see PB are now pushing their "personal" account to allow 3rd party hosting at a more friendly $99.99/year.

Personally, I think they're too late to retain customers - the pain has already been inflicted. If they'd have done that in the first place, then maybe...

Still too much, try $29.99 a year instead perhaps

Given their attitude I wouldn’t give them $0.99 a year now, personally.
