Photobucket - Photofuckit

Post by Deuteronomy @ Wed Jan 17, 2018 10:40 am

I have been using photobucket to host the pics on my threads, I am currently on their $2.99 pcm tariff but they seem intent on fcuking themselves and their users by introducing a $400 minimum fee.

Clearly I'm not going to pay this and before I cancel my subs, I'm just checking to see if there is some clever way CTF can copy all the pics on the threads (mainly the LMT/YMT, SD1 and TR7) without me having to re-host and then edit?

Basically I can't be arsed to re-host and then trawl through the posts and make sure all the pics are in the right places - it seems like a massive shame to lose the threads though.

Clearly I have all the pictures stored safely, but the treads will be trashed.

Thoughts?

Not sure how to fix that but if someone clever could write a script to go through the thread and grab the files with the filenames intact then I can upload them to my server all at once and pidge should be able to replace every instance of www.photobucket.xxx/xxxxxxx/filename.jpg with www.aesgarth.co.uk/xxxxxxyyy/filename.jpg in the thread and keep it all working... Hopefully.... Maybe.

This sounds ideal!

What the actual?

Expanding on aesgarth's sugg, do you (as a paid PB subscriber) have a "download all my shit" option?

That would get you over the "download all your pix individually" hump, and avoid any scripting nonsense. It's just a search and replace in your posts by pidge, then, to point at aesgarth's image host instead of photosoontobeafuckedcompanybucket.

People are effectively being held to ransom over this, bloggers and ebay stores are particularly screwed.

The final nail is their app being so spectacularly shit at uploading.

Laugh - I paid the subs as it was regularly hitting the bandwidth limits, lots of alternatives currently but apathy stopped me from doing anything about it until now.

ETA Plus I don't mind paying for a service if it's worth it, no advertising etc.

Migration? Dunno

Loads of places for storage, but it's the updates of the threads I'm trying to sort. I don't the time or the inclination to move all the pictures and make sure the right link is updated for the right photo for the right place in the thread.

One Drive ?

Yes.

Something to use in future ? (If you have it, or something similar that allows embedding images)

Currently scraping all the photofcukit pics out of your posts and once that's done I shall take further steps as appropriate.

OK - all your old photofcukit pics are now rehosted and the posts amended accordingly (although some of them seemed to be already buggered, mostly the really old ones).

I used to host loads of stuff on there, now I just use FB and post the pictures and change the security to "just me" so they dont actually appear on my timeline, hotlinking them still works though. Not that I've bothered doing much pic posting of late.
