Motherfucker, do you have any idea how much fucking WORK it would be to move all of my literally thousands of icons to another site and then go back and update all the links on over 100 posts - to say nothing of the icons I posted to challenge comms, my picspams, the gifs I've used all over the internet, mood themes, my custom LJ layout, etc.?

I am not paying fucking $400/year just to save it, though, so brb, mourning all the fucking hours spent on graphics no one will ever see again.

What are other graphics makers going to do?

Does this mean my livejournal style is going to break soon and all of the custom journals I've had made for my communities there, too? My profiles? Damn it.

They must be rolling this mess out slowly. My pictures are still visible, but not for long, it appears.

I don't have a Photobucket, but I am angry on fandom's behalf. And $400 a year also seems really steep for an image hosting service?

Tumblr doesn't require third-party image-hosting, does it?

No, anything you upload to tumblr is directly hosted by tumblr. But it's not like, accessible, or anything. You put a picture in a tumblr post, it's there, boom. But you don't have albums or organization or anything, or like any big listing off all your uploaded pictures. It's just directly in the post.

They're stopping their free services entirely? Seriously?
