Photobucket now charging a fee!?!?

It's been a long time since I've posted here, but I received an email yesterday that concerns me with regard to this site. All of the pictures that I have ever posted here are hosted on Photobucket. Now, there aren't a lot of them, but there are several. Many of them are posted in multiple threads as answers to people's questions.

The email I received told that photobucket will start charging a fee for hosting as of June 1, 2019, if your account has over 25Mb/month of traffic. Evidently my pictures exceed that limit, so they will end up being blurred and watermarked. I really hope the blurring will allow for people to click on and access the actual pictures, but I'm certainly not going to pay for the service.

Looking back on it, I wish I had hosted the pictures on my own website. There are just way too many posts for me to go through to locate and move the pictures.

Great you checked-in
Colorado Rally Durango in July. Can you make it? Would be great to see you there.
Still riding that Wing? Hope so.

Yes, Photobucket kind of ruined things. Charging a fee and now watermarking images if you don't pay. Its been a disaster for this site. So many of us used Photobucket to park our pictures. Trip pics are one thing but the How To Maintenance Pictures are precious. No easy solution.

I hadn't even pondered going to a rally, but now that I see the invitations, you've got my excitement rising! I need to do some figuring, and see if it might be possible.
