    I have just spent ages trying to download the few pictures I wish to keep and every chuffing time says I can't so much for telling me I can!!
    Anyways have what I want now and have deleted my Bucket account after emptying it by deleting everything. Apparently account won't go until the 21st but it's got nothing in it anyways! Dare say I just messed up all the pictures in the non-parrot media section where Bob and I have posted pictures of all the places we went too etc but dare say once seen and shared no longer relevant anyways :)
    So if there are loads of posts on site where you wish to see the original photo which will have either a broken link now or a blank spot please shout out and I will upload them.
    Photobucket has stopped me being able to view anybody's links to pictures would seem unless you pay nobody can see them anyways! Besides that it freezes my laptop and I get fed up with all the adverts jumping around all over the place on screen ruddy annoying.

    p.s. If anybody finds my dummy I just spat out please wash it and post it back :) xx

    I feel your pain. I've a nice little video of the ducks I was going to pop on via photo bucket,, alas not to be and not feeling sufficiently motivated to go hunt down an alternate host site at the moment

    @Bob is it any good? Would you recommend?

    Honestly, Imgur is so much better. You can set up an account and that keeps all your pictures in a gallery, or you can just click on 'new post' and then it's drag and drop. Once it's processed you get a series of direct links to the picture depending on what you want to do, for instance there is one to link directly to a forum board that has the [img/] [/img] or whatever it is already included, so you can copy/paste that into the forum and it shows :) Probably making it sound harder than it is, try it out and see if you like it :) Do not click on 'share with the community' though!
