At some point, it might get seriously difficult to post photo sets on SSP. Currently I use Flickr exclusively, coupling the Flickr API with Workflow to automate multiple processes with SSP. This includes article posting and compiling photo links and wrapping them with BBCode so it's not an enormous pain in the ass just to do simple, repetitive tasks. If the new owner removes the BBCode links, or disables the API, I'm not sure where most forumers will go from there.

Also, just think of all of the photo threads that have been ruined by the changes Photobucket went through. All of those years of hard work for everyone. Guess it just goes to show what we risk when we trust the cloud for our hosting.
