Just as we vote or go to rallies to be heard, we must let Companies like PHOTOBUCKET.COM hear from us if we really feel the way we do and are affected by their recent actions. SO, HERE IS HOW:
As a Public Service, Here are unadvertised hard to find Photobucket Direct Telephone Numbers in the U.S: (303)226-6801, Press 1 to Enter any of these Extensions as follows: Extension #5154 for Accounting Manager, #5163 , or any of the following Internal Extensions: 5104, 5107, 5121, 5122, 5127, 5130, 5132, 5135, 5137, 5139, 5149, 5175, 5177, as well as many other telephone extension number sequences in between the ones listed above. Alternatively, you can surpass their telephone menu system by dialing any of the extension directly, by dialing (303)+228+The 4-digit Extension Number(s).
LET THEM HEAR FROM YOU! At the very least, you will have the opportunity to leave a detailed message for any of the extensions and Let them know that they did not have to resort to this method of getting rid of their users. Since everyone who used Photobucket entered the site thru the front door, they could have easily used a pop-up banner each time you logged-on to inform you about the upcoming changes in their terms and business model, with a reasonable grace period and well in advance of their deadline.
You would think that with as many advertisements that the users had to tolerate, photobucket would have been able to successfully fund their former business model. Resorting to ransom and blackmail tactics are the tools of a failing company who has little to loose and even less in business longevity.
PLEASE FORWARD TO AS MANY PEOPLE YOU KNOW TO BE AFFECTED BY PHOTOBUCKET.COM
REMEMBER, REPETITION (CALLS, MESSAGES) IS THE BEST WAY TO GET HEARD AND TO CAUSE A CHANGE IN TIME!
Best of Luck to Everyone!
