Photobucket Bandwidth

Post by Henrik on Sun Oct 25 2009, 11:35

I guess you are all seeing these "Potobucket Bandwidth Exceeded" banners all over the page. I don't understand what is going on right now. I use Photobucket to store pictures and stuff like the banner at the top of the page, but I have been monitoring the bandwidth I use and I am not even at 1% of what I can use right now. Is any other user on here using Photobucket, and have exceeded your bandwidth?

It is really annoying as I don't know how to get rid of this. I could switch to Pro (and pay $25 per year) but if I am only using 1% I don't see why I would need to switch to Pro.

I'm using 2% (11mb) - but my Avatar is was linked to Photobucket. Might that have something to do with it...? scratch

*EDIT* I've just managed to delete my Avatar - took some effort I tell thee, trying to avoid all of the Photobucket crapola that was so much kudzu over the relevant fields...!

Hope that this helps...? */EDIT*

The googlebots have found that X many of us (me included) have and use our photobucket accounts. I'm guessing it is just a new form of banner add so obnoxious that you will either pay up to get the pro account. I would imagine the people at forumotion have more to do with this than any of our photobucket accounts. Their providing a free forum is all about them advertising.

Actually more obnoxious is the "Meet local girls near you" ads, that are working off the postal code of your ISP address. Showing all the hot, nublie, cuties in Howe's Cave, NY. LOL The place hac a population of about 300, there can't be that many hot chicks there, all registered at Afdult Friend Finder.

The ultimate question is whether is is more like an infestation of bedbugs, able to be cleaned up with a few applications of pest control, or a case of genital herpes, a lifelong vcondition that can flare up at any time?

MMmmmmmm......flares... flower


BTW - what is a v-condition...? Or do I have to be Afdult to understand...? Wink

Incidentally, the death of my Avatar seems to have made little impact.
More to the point, I've never seen any of these "meet local gurlz" ads, local or otherwise...! {bangshead}

OK - back-on-topic...

A quick Google search shows that this site's uploaded free template is possibly riding on the provider's "Photobucket" account.

http://abcblogtips.blogspot.com/2008/09/when-your-blog-shows-photobucket.html#

Ergo, wherever we got this site from, has a linked Photobucket account, that in turn links to e.g. "Hot Gurlz In Your Local Area" adverts. The more we visit this site, the more we see (i.e. download) these images. Too many visits by too many members, and we overload the, er, free advertising budget...! scratch

My two-penneth.

So, it looks like the problem was with Forumotion and not with any of us. Everything has now been resolved, and we can get back to looking at those cool ads.

It is annoying I agree, but then again the forum is free and generally works well.
