"Photobucket restores photos “taken hostage,” hopes to lure back customers with cheaper plans after last year’s $399 debacle
Long-time Denver photo site reorganizes with new management and much cheaper price plans.

Photobucket is back! And so are all of the photos that disappeared after the Denver company decided last summer to charge up to $399 for hosting images.

The company, which became one of the nation’s largest photo-sharing sites in the early 2000s, said Thursday that it has rejiggered management and wants to do “the right thing for customers” and dropped hosting fees to $2.49 a month or $24.99 a year, though for a limited time, fees are $1.99 a month, or $19.99 a year.

“Our focus since I took over has been customers first,” said Ted Leonard, who joined the company last fall as its finance officer and became CEO in March. “Two months later, we’ve turned back on the images. It’s an important day. Millions of images were restored that were lost forever. Our mission is to bring back customers and regain customer trust.”

After fucking up millions of posts on hundreds of thousands of threads on thousands of forums, they can get bent.
Who in their right mind would trust a company that held 99% of their customers' property to ransom?

After all the trouble they caused and that I went through, I won't give them a dime, but it is nice to see our old pictures back.

Even if Ted licked my salty nutsack I wouldn't give them a plug nickel. Seems he doesn't realize that what they used to do for free is still offered by others-for free no less. World according to Ted: I am sorry we fucked up so bad that we destroyed our own business. Please reconsider by paying two bucks a month for what we used to give you, all is well. And, in our magnanimous grace we will let you have access to your private property again. Fuck you Ted.

I wonder how they are going to deal with the people who paid $399.00. I can't imagine them being happy for the people who will get to pay $19.99.

I'm more than happy with what I switched to. Rear view mirror time, PB, and eat shit and die on your way out.

I've never used Photobucket, and I understand every comment made above, but while every company can screw up, not every company tries to fix the error.

$2.50 a month isn't bad for what they offer.
