    I always use Photobucket for hosting my pictures and I hardly ever have problems with it, but today it's not cooperating. I will go to upload a photo, and it will appear to work, but when it finishes, I get the red icon and the upload error message.

    I've logged out of my Photobucket account and logged back in.
    I've emptied my browser cache.
    I've tried it in both Safari and Firefox.
    I've changed the locations and filenames of my photos.
    I've tried uploading one photo at a time.
    I've tried the bulk uploader (which wouldn't even open).
    I even reset my wireless router.

    Nothing worked.

    Has anyone else had this problem today? I'm inclined to think it's an issue with the site itself.

    I'm trying to upload something, but it always goes to 98%, claims to be done, then it just stays for a ages.

    If that's the case, it's almost certainly a problem on their end. I wouldn't be surprised, since they were having server problems earlier this month.

    I've never had an account on Imageshack, but when I go there, I usually get Mackeeper popups.

    Chrome with Adblock Plus isn't an option?

    No, because I don't trust any site that runs Mackeeper ads. It's a scam.

    I may try Flickr instead, if I can ever figure out their user interface.

    Posting to say that the Bulk Uploader will open for me, but even though it des everything fine, Photobucket still states that 0 photos uploaded.

    Ah well. They generally fix these things very quickly. :)

    It was working fine for me a few minutes ago, up until I went to mouse-over a second image to copy the board code. It got all weird on me and wouldn't load the mouse-over bit, then wouldn't copy.

    Ummmm, the same applies for Firefox, y'know (I use Imageshack mind you but once in a while)...

    Anywho, no issues for me.

    Well, whatever the problem was, it seems to be fixed now.
