bpd1151 Posted July 2, 2017 Report Share Posted July 2, 2017 (edited) I recieved notice that as of 06/23/2017, PB has revamped their TOS (Terms Of Service) that will likely have profound effects on all account holders / users. Effective immediately, PB is no longer allowing their customers "3rd party hosting". In other words, any pictures you post on any forum, or other 3rd party entity, whereas a link is used originating from PB, you will not be allowed to post said image. Now, here's the kicker. They now have a subscription option available that would supercede and/or override this, and allow users to restore their images to said 3rd party platform, however, the MINIMUM SERVICE LEVEL IS (a automatic recurring) $399 ANNUALLY! Holy balls! Totally not kidding folks. They have lesser subscription levels for $99.99 & $58.99 p/year, but neither of those 2, lesser options permit/allow 3rd party hosting. This is incredibly unfortunate and there was no advanced notice about this change in terms. Considering I have hundreds, if not thousands of images uploaded to PB myself, and posted in several venues, I may be forced to re-download all of my images, close my account, and search for a different vendor to host them. Regardless, that means any/all images posted in my "How-To's" etc. would have to be re-linked/modified/edited, which quite honestly will take an extensive amount of work to take on. I could avoid that I suppose, by flipping the mandatory $399 p/year fee now imposed, but F me. I mean really PB!?!?!?! Terribly disappointed.
