Wow if anyone want to see a website implode check out the social media sites for Photobucket. All my images for the last 8 years or so are being held to ransom and the only way I can get them to show again is pay $399 US per year for the privilege.
Once I am able to download my images from their site I will re embed them here so this thread is not totally meaningless.
Even if they do a turnarond regarding this rediculous cost I can see most members there will not stay.
Good luck, there is an uproar about photobucket on various other forums.
I am a letter writer, snailmail addict. I send therefore I receive. I also manage a letter writing/correspondence forum called A World of Snail Mail and have a blog (link is in my profile). I sometimes post pictures on Instagram (username morgaine_does_snail_mail) Stamp themes - science, nature, postal history, maps, nice stamps.
That Ransomeware thing is the chief reason why I haven`t put anything I value on the Cloud I`ve heard about. I worry that one day we will have to pay to retrieve that stuff, and the worst thing is, it will be legitimate! What you have encountered is apparently illegitimate - if I were you, I think I`d wait before paying anything to see if "they" manage to find and squish the perpetrators!
