Curse you, Photobucket!!

I'd heard about the policy changes over at Photobucket, but I'd managed to avoid all the crappy fallout until now.

Photobucket has added a watermark to every image I have hosted there, which includes the navigation buttons on every single one of my ~1700 wiki pages. I'm gonna have to go through and edit every f**kin' one of them to fix this.

This makes me a sad panda.

    Oof! That is grueling just to think about. Sorry to hear that! Although I've gone through some of your stuff and don't see any watermarks. Either you're that much of a beast to already get it done, or maybe you're not as totally boned? Good luck either way

    I gave in and paid the $5 ransom fee, because I have images saved there that I wasn't able to access without the watermark. But now it turns out that even with a paid subscription I can't seem to get to my own damn images. I'm canceling, deleting my account, and flipping off Photobucket as I go.

    That's rough man :-( I'm not an emoji kind of guy, but I feel like "sad face" is the best way to convey feeling totally bummed for you
