    I have at least one build thread on here that links back to Photobucket. I have no plans to upgrade my account to fix the 3rd-party hosting issue (I don't use Photobucket at all anymore).

    I'd be happy to fix the broken links in the thread to point to new locations for the pictures. Anyone know if that's possible? If so, how?

    Thanks

    Only real option is to fix it manually. It is probably worth it to upload them to an album on Flickr or Imgur, then link that in your affected threads. Photobucket made a huge miscalculation here, IMO.

    Thanks, Adam. I was under the assumption that I couldn't edit old posts, but I see now that I can!

    I'll be updating the posts with new URL's for the pics. I don't have too many on Photobucket, so it's not that big a deal to do it manually. It would be nice to have a tool for those that have many pictures.

    I have thousands on PhotoBucket. I paid the yearly fee so I have time to find another place to move them to....
