Dept. of What? WHAT??

Photobucket, Part Deux

Earlier today, I checked some of my posts with pictures and such from Photobucket. The latest ones were still not-showing up (although they didn't have that odd graphic that some people's pages are afflicted with. Earlier ones, however, were still showing up. OK, I thought, perhaps this stupidity only affects recent images? 

Just now, I checked, and all the ones that had gone missing from DW/LJ were back in place. They're still here. 

However, since other folks' appear to still be missing their images, I am at a complete loss as to account for my "recovery." Nor do I know whether it should last. 

Has anyone else noticed that sort of thing happening?

Mine are still working (I use photobucket for meme pics and the book rec pics and big stuff like that, though my icon posts are from LJ's scrapbook... thank god, since there are thousands of them). Given what is happening, I started an imgur account as well, will see how that goes.

I'm still a bit croggled by the whole photobucket thing, and I'm wondering if the massive pushback has finally forced them to do at least a little bit of reconsideration. I'm probably far, far too optimistic, but it doesn't hurt to hope a little.

Maybe the fact that I don't use their suggested html link, but copy the direct one and paste it into my own link or thumbnail link (simply because that was the way I was taught to do it years ago) makes a difference. Or not. I'm blankly ignorant....

Every time I check, I find different photos available and others unavailable. It's almost as if they're toying with me, like a cruel cat with a hapless mouse. Heh.

Yeah. The same thing seems to have happened on my LJ. And my posts on Dreamwidth version of scans_daily. Hmm...

I did another check last night, and the number of images that show up vs the number of images that don't was about 60-40 percent. And some that did show up at one point, wouldn't half an hour later. And then would reappear. I have no idea what on earth they've done in terms of coding, but it's spectacularly random.
