Hey mods, just FYI - Photobucket must have changed something about linking images on external sites because all images hosted on Photobucket, including the rules graphic, are not showing up... see the first page of this thread or http://absolutechaos.net/stories.php?action=newstory for example.  KimtheKaotic tweeted about it, but I'm not sure how often anyone checks the @ACFicTalk Twitter account.


Edit: I went to http://photobucket.com/P500/ for more info...  They want you to freaking PAY to upgrade your account in order to embed images on a third-party site.  Bullshit!  Here's an article that lists some free alternatives: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/photobucket-alternative-free-image-hosting-sites  Buh-bye Photobucket!

Huh...well that sucks. There's not much we can do besides delete the image but hopefully people who use photobucket will come here to click on the link you posted to change their images. No banners is always the best option lol 😁.

Yup this sucks. I hosted everything with photobucket but a couple weeks ago I changed anything current to use Imgur, which seems to work just fine. Eventually I'll go reupload everything that I had in photobucket to Imgur, but today is not that day lol

Yeah, hopefully you can just re-post the rules as text instead of an image; then it won't matter.

Hopefully we have them somewhere besides photobucket lol

Until then just everyone be good. It's the same people who always post in here anyway.

Whoever owns the Photobucket account should still be able to access the image there, if only to re-save it and upload it somewhere else or transcribe it if need be.

Until then, I guess I can start spamming up the Most Recent page with all the stories I've been productively writing!  Oh, wait...

Yup, Julilly has it. Now people are going to be putting up banners as big as my head. Of course they'll say that photobucket is no longer working lol
