Whats up with Photobucket?

Postby Metroid » Wed Jun 18, 2008 7:34 am

Anybody tried to go to Photobucket lately? I just keep getting redirected to all kinds of weird pages for web hosting. %-6

I did find this in a Google search, maybe the buyout has something to do with it. :-?

Social-networking site MySpace, owned by Murdoch's News Corp., has agreed to acquire Photobucket, the Web's No. 1 photo-sharing service, according to a source close to the deal.

The source, who requested anonymity because he isn't authorized to discuss the deal publicly, confirmed a story about the acquisition in the blog Valleywag on Monday. Before the deal is announced, the two sides must wrap up a few details, the source said. Financial terms weren't available, but it is widely known that Photobucket, with 40 million registered users, has been shopping itself in recent months and asking for about $300 million. Late Monday, a Reuters report quoting a source familiar with the deal said a preliminary agreement had been reached for around $250 million.

Representatives from both companies did not respond to interview requests.

The deal comes just a month after the two companies crossed swords in a very public public-relations battle. MySpace accused Photobucket of violating its terms of agreement by "encouraging" users to include advertisements in the slide shows they posted to MySpace. Photobucket said that without notice, MySpace began blocking the image-sharing site's photo slide shows and videos.

I can see my sig and your sig. It could be the particular server you're on? Aren't they co-located in several places throughout the world? I would guess you're sourcing a different server than I am, and that's why you're having problems and I'm not? Just a guess. :-?

This started yesterday for me but different, the home page loaded up weird kinda like when the Cafe was under construction adn the tabs were all goofy and you could see some code. Made me think Photobucket was just under construction but now it's redirecting me to free hosting sites and tip sites, not image hosting like website hosting and advertising sites or something....whats weird is it's never the same one(though it rotates through the same few)and it's got that thing where you can't click 'Back' it just keeps reloading the same page. :-?

I have no idea about the servers, if thats the case that would make sense. ;-D

I was gonna say I'd take screen shots and show you what I'm getting but I can't get to Photobucket to host them. :-B :-b
