Sorry for the incovenience

It has been brought to my attention as you can see, nearly all of my items have been removed and replaced with photobucket's ugly picture.  Unfortunately, it seems that either there is a glitch with photobucket OR someone is using my links and posting my pictures on their site because photobucket is saying that I've used 10GB of bandwidth (something I've never come close to before) and it won't reset until the 29th of this month.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience for those who are trying to look at my newer banners.  What I can do here is give you a link to my banner Facebook and you can see the adoption banners there.  While I try to figure out what I can do to get my site going right again.  I hope it won't take too long.

I'm going to ask that IF you have been using my direct links of any of my banners, pictures etc. Please discontinue using them. I cannot afford to upgrade to a premium account with photobucket to get a larger bandwidth. So if this continues, unfortunately we'll get to see the ugly photobucket picture until they reset it.  If there is a picture or banner that you would like to use on your website, just ask me.  I'll email you a copy so you can upload it yourself.  The other option would be for me to place a paypal donation button on the website and you could donate to the payment of a premium account with photobucket.  The cost would be about $49.99 a year. But, with that would also come unlimited bandwidth.  If that is something you would like to do, please feel free to either comment here or email me.



  1. check and see if you can make the folder with private (you will probably need to change your links here if you do this before the end of the month, and that may be HUGE time investment) but if you start posting your banners and use a private locked folder- they will still show up here, but be unable to be used in direct linking.
    I sucked it up and got the pro account (cough toomanypicscough) but i think this is a safe way to work the system. ;)
    Hope that helps!

  2. @holdmeRansom I'll have to look into that. I think that is what bugs me the most is that my issue isn't that I have too many pics. I've only used 0.1 of my 2GB storage.

  3. HMR is right. It happened to me a long time ago and I keep PB private because of that. No one should be using the direct links. What they should do is download to their own PB so it doesn't cause the owner any grief like this.
