    Photobucket users?

    I've been a photobucket user for a long time, but haven't used it in a while.

    Anyway, I logged on a few days ago and have had the most difficult time getting my photos copied to post in the forum. I've also noticed many more pop ups and ads on the sight. In addition, it's running slower than a turtle.

    I don't know if photobucket has had a turn for the worse or if my "Winblows" 10 machine is the culprit.

    Anyone notice a similar problem?

    Thoughts? (please don't tell me to turn pop ups off, I'm light years past that)

    Thanks guys!

    Yep, noticed the same thing a few months ago. Like you, I hadn't been on there for quite awhile and found it just as you said when I returned. It's basically useless now, I've written it off. Sad, it sure was convenient while it worked.

    If you just want to share a couple images and don't need the features of photo-bucket (folders, groups, etc) try

    Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

    Easiest to use.
    - Drag your image to the center and drop it
    - Click the image
    - Right click the image & select copy image location
    - Paste the image location in the forum post

    I quit using it years ago. tinypic is just too much simpler for a few pix to post. I keep a notebook file of URLs for the pix on my desktop.

    Same experience here. Did you turn on ad blocker? Sorry!

    I found that FireFox is a little faster than the other browsers but seems pretty slow compared to how it used to be. Pretty sure everything on Photobucket is still on my PC so if it goes down I don't lose anything.

    Just checked my account and I too was bombarded with ads and redirected several times. I'll try and download my pics and then I'm done with that site.

    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog.
    He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence.
    The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep.
    Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

    I gave up on PB a few years ago. Switched to imgur and love it.

    Thanks guys, I think I'll try the ones you recommended.

    I was highly disappointed because it use to be so quick and easy, now it's awful.

    My default is firefox but I tried it on MS edge as well and got the same result.

    It's now used to constrain the people.
