Seems like photobucket has gone from working well for years, to bad and cumbersome to use after their revamp of the site a week or so ago, to now not working at all. I have some pics to upload and cannot get anywhere with it. I checked an "is is down" website and many others over the past two days have lost functionality. Anyone else having trouble?
I switched back to the old user-interface on photobucket (there's a switch option on the new page). And since then I haven't had any trouble. It looks and works the way it always did.

Are you saying that you click upload, and the progress bar jumps around, and then the upload fails with a red X instead of thumnails of the pics? Over the last two years, sometimes I'd get that, but I'd try again and it would work. It failed for me like that a few days ago, and I had to retry several times before it worked, but that's the extent of my problems recently.
No, I get no response at all to do anything. I can't see my pictures, view albums, upload or anything. I see the buton that is suppose to switch it back to the old interface but clicking that does nothing either. The mobile version on my iPad is working fine. I suppose I could upload my camera pics via the iPad but that is kind of a pain, since I upload and archive all photos on my pc.

It's been what I call a mild pain in the ass since they "upgraded." It wasn't a complete pain in the ass, just a mild pain in the ass. Now it's beng a royal pain in the ass. Damn you photobucket, damn you to hell. ... wait ... I love you photobucket.
We're sorry, we cannot find the page you requested.

Pain in the ass again tonight. The 'bulk uploader' was working for me a couple or few weeks ago, now it's not. I see this ...
We've been seeing reports coming in that users are unable to upload using the bulk uploader, due to a trust error they are receiving. There isn't a fix being planned for this issue. We are moving away from the bulk uploader with the new site, and we will no longer be supporting it going forward. What you can do is download the Photobucket Backup program. This allows you to upload images in bulk, as well as upload albums. You can even set albums to auto-upload, which will upload any images added to those albums without you having to access your Photobucket account on a browser.

I officially gave up tonight and started a brand new album. I couldn't log in to my "SteamMcQueen" album. Checked the help section they said to reset the password now that everyone is on the new beta site. So I did and it kept bringing me back to my old "Steam_McQueen" album which I filled during the BBC days. They couldn't recognize the underscore/no underscore thing so I said ta hell with it and started the new album. I'm really hoping to be bullshit-free from now on.
