From time to time, Photobucket.com experiences issues, which in turn, messes with our site because many of our images, including photos and the green thumb, are stored there.

We have no affiliation with Photobucket and during such times, we can only ask that you remain patient and ride it out with us. Say what you will about Photobucket, they do fix their issues and do so sooner rather than later.

So if this site is not performing for you now or in the future in the manner you have come to know and love, please bear this in mind.

Yeah quite bizarre what is happening one minute it is working exceptionally well the next it's terrible. Strange! Hopefully it can be sorted soon. We love that green thumb business, especially No64DD.

@Milage,
yeah, i do okay. ^_^

I'm not having any issues at the moment. Photobucket could do without all of the tenacious clickbait though, especially when using mobile devices.

I've been using PB for years but it's gotten really bad over the last few. I'm just too lazy to start an account with another photo sharing site which is why I still keep using it.

I have thousands of photo on PB and just the thought of retrieving 'em all gives me headache. just use chrome+ad block and you'll be fine.

Thanks for the advice! I added SuperBlock Pro (mostly because it's free :lol: ) to Chrome and Photobucket seems to be a little bit better now. :yeah:

Same here.

Too busy, and when I'm not busy, can't be arsed and doesn't seem worth the effort.

I think I've actually had my photobucket for over 10 years now.😮

$400 to upgrade for 3rd party hosting. Time to switch to Imgur/Flickr ;)

Rocky I would thumbs up your comment if I could find the button for it so just have this :yeah:

Actually I found it. Hey if I was the kind of person who gains satisfaction by telling people photobucket sucked at least now I have a tangible reason. $400 for that laggy trash. But I'm not that kind of person so I won't say that

I'd just ask for some patience on this issue. There are hundreds/thousands of images that all of a sudden need to be re-uploaded somewhere else, and urls updated in the site config. No matter what the solution, this is going to be a ton of work for our admins.

Yea I'm starting to think Flickr would be the optimal choice for the hosting exodus. It's less popular than Imgur (which is a good thing) and it's stable/well supported. It's what I used for the N64 Cartridge Scan Repository.

As a precaution, I've gone and moved all the standard icons that my theme uses to Imgur. Previously some of these were linked to Norcal's PhotoBucket account which seems to still be working correctly for now, perhaps he has a paid account. The 'like' button is the only problem I can see with his theme, so that will have to be changed. Here's an album to them if it is of any use to the other theme creaters they can use these links:

I've also taken the liberty of re-hosting the previous award banners for 2015 and 2016, which seem to be the only years affected, if people would like to change their signatures they can find them here:
http://imgur.com/a/mJ2IO

Finally, it's probably worth mentioning that the URLs for the site N64forever.com / N64forever.net haven't been working since March. Not sure if there's anything that can be done about that.

I have the green thumb in my photobucket account. Come to think of it, I think I have it saved on my work computer. I can save it to a new flickr account on monday.

@danilocha: great foresight! Thank you!!

Old avatar url: http://i984.photobucket.com/albums/ae327/bluedogrulez/17695dc5.jpg

QUESTION: My flickr url links start with https. which is fouling things up, because the update avatar button automatically places an http in front. any advice?

Your original image is too big! :phear:

Here is a re-sized link, paste this into the "use url" field: c1.staticflickr.com/5/4122/35653094465_f0f0896d17_o.jpg

I would definitely recommend Imgur for online image hosting. It's always up and isn't bloated with ads, even on mobile.

moving all photo to another site is a complete major PITA. I have 50+ sub-folder that each need to be downloaded individually in zip file and that's when it's working. what a boatload of crap. the site is still working good here, which is very odd but I have 2600+ photo that need to be backed up. I guess i'll keep them on my PC in case they get deleted by photobucket.

I dont know where that 400$ comes from, but I didnt get the email saying that.
