Same thing here. DanielLeFortesque is probably right:
Photobucket rolled out a new update to its TOS on June 26th with just a small, innocuous blog post as an announcement. Users have been finding out about it as their embedded images on other sites have turned into placeholders telling them to update their accounts, and as Photobucket has rolled out email notifications telling them that if they want to keep embedding images, they have to pay $399/year.

What, photobucket or this board? This board is still going, and yeah I know I said about temporary pics and didn't do it yet, sorry about that....
edit: well I tried, I can't even find the option to change smilies back to standard ones though(I had no idea they were hosted on photobucket?), I also put in a new background which is now plain black for some reason.
Any one else with admin control want to help? or at least point me in the right direction.
Also can we avoid using smilies for now? it makes posts look terrible. Thanks!
Thanks for doing it mate, I've got no idea with this sort of stuff so it's really appreciated
Haha, no problem. I do feel completely responsible for this mess, anyhow. Should have reuploaded everything straight away when ProBoards started hosting board images.
EDIT: By the way, if anyone has any suggestions for theme fixes (if anything is hard to read in a certain theme that you're using) or for new themes (based on levels that we don't have themes for yet) or perhaps theme remakes, let me know in this thread.

Hmm that's lucky then! I did actually try and find the links again but I'm not sure how to go to the image page rather than the direct link to see if I could find it myself, maybe it's obvious and I just couldn't work it out though
