    I've had it with the new Photobucket, and I have been a paid member since 04. All my videos are gone. And yes I dumped all my cookies, clean my cash and checked that Java is working and updated.
    Anyone know of a program that works like the OLD Photo bucket did????

    Last 2 or 3 "improvements" took it that much further down the toilet. The photo editing was the first to go.

    As a designer my main goal is to keep things as simple as possible. There's a desire to add as many bells and whistles as possible, but ultimately if you can't use the basic of the program the bells and Whistler are meaningless.

    I agree, and trying to get that concept through to clients is a PIA sometimes. Just because you can add something, or someone else has done it, doesn't make it a good idea.

    Especially when that thing is successful. Google + is a good example of complexity making something void in comparison to other products, Facebook in this case.

    And that's an issue. Google should know there edge by now. Simple is best.

    That is why I use tinypic to post my pictures.
    I have been on there for about 5 or 6 years & they haven't lost any of my pictures yet.
    Give it a try.

    If you look at the very bottom of the page it says it's a Photobucket Company. :D
