As you guys have probably noticed, Photobucket officially sucks for changing their terms and conditions and essentially holding our forum photos hostage. For now, do not use Photobucket anymore. We are working to try and figure out a solution to get the photos back, but it may be challenging. For now please use another photo storage site such as imgur.com
