Just a quick update on this: over the next few days I will be switching over all our images to the new hosting location. This means that some images may not load immediately or (very) temporarily disappear. Don't worry though, they will all come back and the disruption should only be a few minutes. I'll try to do this during a quiet time but with a forum that's in use 24/7 some downtime is inevitable :)

Thank you for your patience.

Another update:

Good news! Overnight I have updated our database to replace all PhotoBucket image links to the new image hosting location and everything seems to have moved over as expected. All images should now appear again as they should, the standard PhotoBucket "ransom image" should have disappeared and the all images are lots quicker to load as well :)

Whilst all images (in posts, not in signatures etc) that were previously hosted on PhotoBucket have now moved over, I have left any links to PhotoBucket albums etc. in place. These links will continue to work fine and I didn't want to lose this if someone has deliberately linked to an album.

As mentioned in my original post, you may continue to use PhotoBucket if you wish, but we strongly recommend that you use another provider for now. I'm in the process of making posting images on the forum a bit easier - more on that later!

Update:

Those of you who still had PhotoBucket image links in your signatures have now been updated too.
I have created a separate how-to post regarding the new image uploader here: https://www.xj40.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=998075

I think that's it. If you have any questions or problems, please let me know!

Excellent work Roel, I know that we all owe you a vote of thanks for what you have done for us. It would have been a disaster had all of our meticulously prepared photographs disappeared in one fell swoop, shame on Photobucket in its attempt at ransom. More reason to switch to Imgur or other hosting sites, but even so your additions to aid posting photographs directly has helped immensely.
