And to further irritate me today, its become apparent that someone went through my ENTIRE photobucket account and reported a shitload of images just to get my goat.

Whoever you are, you have way too much time on your hands.

WTF? Reported them for what?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Remember when my afri cola afrika corps logo comparison didnt show up anymore? Stuff like that, plus anything remotely nude, INCLUDING non pornographic HUMAN nudes as well as furry ones.

Even my fat thorn on a bike got pulled. Its just a butt ;P

Yanno, may I suggest 1&1 hosting? I recently nabbed them for yelth.com and they're not that expensive. You can transfer domains to them if you want.

Assholes.

Actually.. I think Photobucket look through images and remove ones that go against their TOS, because my photobucket account is totally private and I've had images removed.

So it's possible it was just photobucket staff?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
I dunno. Things seemed weirdly coincidental concerning recent personal events, I get the feeling someone deliberately went on a reporting spree given what was reported.

That and the fact that they pulled my fat thorn on a bike pic. The only thing bad about that is the tremendous size of her ass.
ellonwye From: ellonwye Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, the images of mine that got pulled were tasteful nudes. I think Photobucket are kinda anal now. :/

it irks me that my afri cola / afrika corps logo comparison got pulled. OHNOEZ ITS A SWASTIKA! it was an obvious comparison image though!

Blah. The nude thing is far too anal though, I agree. I wonder what Photobucket staff do when theyre in the shower..wear a bathing suit cuz they might see their danger zones?

I gotta say..

I really fail to understand WHY everyone always goes after the 'Fat Thorn on a bike" drawing like it's some godawful thing. It's cute and absolutely harmless! I don't get why you always seem to have trouble with that image...people need to unwedge the stick from thier ass and realize that there is NOTHING explicit about it. It's just a wolf with some junk in her trunk ;)

And erf...photobucket staff combs through the accounts for 'questionable' material? Isn't that somehow a violation of the user's privacy?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:37 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: I gotta say..

I wondered that myself actually. Its..just...a..butt. Nothing more. You see more cheek on the coppertone sunscreen ads.

And besides, theres far worse images I could get thumped for, yet they seem to be "ok"? hurh?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:39 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: I gotta say..

And as for combing through accounts, I'm fairly certain it was some individual with too much time and a beef with me going through my account, which up until now I thought was private. Fixed though! D:

It started with my afri cola/afrika corps comparison pic...i thought it was just because of the swastika, but more and more of my pics started to disappear over the last few days.

Re: I gotta say..

That's odd. I never even knew you had a photobucket account, but yeah, those are best kept on 'private' mode so that people can't mess with your stuff. I just have my files hosted on my own hosting plan so as to avoid people giving me a hard time with things like reporting images and what not. If you have your own hosting plan that you pay for, for the most part you can tell people to shove it (although there are still some things that still may go against the TOS, but meh..if directory listing is disabled, who would know they're even there?)
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:54 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: I gotta say..

You knew I had a photobucket account. You linked to it in your LJ after this whole shit me a boat fiasco. I even linked you to it in our innitial conversation.

I thought I had it on private mode but I guess I "misclicked" when setting it up.

From now on though I'm going to be using another more private provider I think.
sfinder From: sfinder Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:58 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: I gotta say..

I never went peeking in though, and what I meant was that prior to you linking me, I never knew you had one. I should have made that more clear. >.< Even when you did link me, I didn't pay much attention to the URL (I'm not one to go poke in people's accounts anyway..I hate it when people do that with my stuff, so I'd never do it to anyone else).

And yeah, when I set up mine I was careful to make it as private as can be, it saves ALOT of headaches. But yeah, if you go with a private hosting provider it will be much easier.

Make your account private, and password access only. Then they can't even see your stuff.
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
I honestly thought I had, now I feel so...omg..exposed! :O

Ellonwye said she had stuff removed even on her private account though :O
corvus_animus From: corvus_animus Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's wierd and not cool. I may kill mine then and just host from my domain o.O
ellonwye From: ellonwye Date: September 3rd, 2006 07:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, mine is private and requires a password and so far I think I've had about 4 images removed. Ones that I have never linked to, anywhere, ever. They MUST occasionally comb accounts, which is a little.. odd, but it's their servers so I won't complain about privacy.

The point is, some dickwipe is after ya. Or a series of ones.
fierycatthing From: fierycatthing Date: September 3rd, 2006 08:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Photobucket preens through other people's galleries often to find TOS violations. I had several things of mine removed, some stuff from a year ago that only recently got removed.

Get a furtopia.org account. They are mostly for webhosting, but I've seen people use their service for storage. Benefit is they don't mind the risque stuff and they're very generous about allotted space. :P
wolf_goat From: wolf_goat Date: September 3rd, 2006 09:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
To me it seems like it was intentional. But I'm paranoid. It reminds me of eBay auctions I've seen removed: it was an old scenario where eBay used to pull any auction that was reported (this is different now!), without checking, and this led to competitors abusing the system. The Thorn on a bike one would be a perfect example in that case - someone reports it, they take it down without looking. I cannot see the staff taking down cartoon cutesy ass crack of their own accord, unless it was reported and they just insta-ganked it.

It's really fucking sad to report a Photobucket account, though. I mean, half the mature auctions on Furbid are from Photobucket, everyone uses it to host their pr0nz....
westly_roanoke From: westly_roanoke Date: September 3rd, 2006 09:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Though I've been noticeing more and more they've been going down...
wolf_goat From: wolf_goat Date: September 3rd, 2006 10:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well if they're cracking down, they haven't hit on my adult arts that I have there. A lot more adult than ass crack, may I add.
westly_roanoke From: westly_roanoke Date: September 3rd, 2006 10:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yay!

Sorry...::Grins::

I dunno I just know I've seen four or five red Photobucket "These have been removed" on Furbid in the past few days.

Your icon rocks so much. Hellsing is love.
westly_roanoke From: westly_roanoke Date: September 3rd, 2006 10:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
I've got a couple hellsing icons...They're all stolen, feel free to steal!

(Credit is usually in the info on my iconpage.)

I do hope karma will bite them in the ass.

When will people find something better to do with their time ? :(

Do you have a paid LJ account? maybe host the stuff on the photo section if you do?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: September 4th, 2006 06:45 am (UTC) (Link)
I do but the reason i dont use it anymore (i used to) is because I can't image tag things on forums with the LJ URL because theres no ".jpg" or anything at the end, just a string of numbers =/
silver_huskey From: silver_huskey Date: September 4th, 2006 12:37 am (UTC) (Link)
*Points to the user above.* I was about to suggest the same thing. I use the LJ photo section to host every picture that I post to my LJ. Like friends filters you have total control over who gets to see your pictures. No annoying TOS stuff from Photobucket to put up with, or annoying people trying to report your images. Since you have a paid account with extra icons, you should have about 2 gigs of space to play with, like I do. ^^
activeradio From: activeradio Date: September 5th, 2006 08:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
It may be that someone reported just one of the images and they decided to take a look through the rest of your stuff and pulled them at the same time.
I still think it sucks if someone did bother to report one image but at least it's not as bad as someone systematically going through them all just for the purpose of pissing you off.
