So, if anyone’s used photobucket recently, they’ve likely heard of what that site has done to off-site hosting.
For those that don’t, many of my stories on Archive of Our Own go through photobucket for the images that appear in the chapters. I’ve switched it up in recent stories to a different way of posting that was easier, but all my old photos are through photobucket– and are now being held hostage.
If you see–
– this is what photobucket does to any images from their site hosted elsewhere, unless you upgrade to their Plus 500 plan.
I’m not against upgrading my accounts from time to time for usability, like I do on deviantart, but the cost of this one is exorbitant. Completely unreasonable for what I use the account for.
They don’t even tell you the price until you go almost all the way through the order.
Because of this, I’ll be going through my archive account and updating the pictures today.
If you see any of the photobucket p500 pictures, please message me the story and chapter so I can go fix them! With the amount of stories I have posted, it’s very likely I’ll miss some and I want to erase photobucket from my life!
