    Default A Heads Up For Photobucket Users

    With only a little bit of 'tweaking' people can change the URL on a displayed pic and get access to your whole Photobucket album which may contain pics you'd rather not share with the whole internet!!! If you want to keep porn pics of yourself or our loved ones then I suggest you use old fashioned technology like a Polaroid camera or at least put them in a separate Photobucket account

    You can create a seperate folder and put them in a private display.

    I made a decision not to post any pics for public consumption a long time ago. I've seen what can happen.

    This didn't happen to me, but it's happened on another board I frequent where people post various totally innocuous pics or downloaded Google images or whatever. Someone tweaked the Photobucked URL (I'd better not say exactly how but it's not difficult) and a poster's whole album popped up which contained stuff I'm sure she wouldn't want anyone else to see. Why DO people take pics of themselves nekkid anyway and why put them into a Photobucked album?? You have to wonder.

    Now, see, I noticed one time that it looked like it could be done. So I did it to mine, and yep, it all popped up. But I figured that it was because I had a cookie in my computer that logged me in, or something, because it showed me logged in when I had not actually done so.

    Then I tried doing it to a stranger's account, just to see if it did the same thing, and it did not. I did not have access. But obviously someone knows something I don't.

    Boooooo

    I agree-it is crazy to put nekkid pictures out there unless you are a porn star who wants free ads.

    I'm sure there's a setting that's like "Don't allow guests to view my gallery" or something.

    *jaunts off to take down nekkid pics on photobucket*

    Just Kidding!

    Just having them on a server anywhere, or even on your computer, would be asking for trouble. I had my laptop stolen a couple of months ago and had I had any compromising pictures on there, they could've been in my parents' and relatives inboxes so quick it would make my head spin.

    Doesn't that make you shudder!! My relatives are so critical I would never have heard the end of it! Like-"MY LAWD! Look at that waistline! No more pie for her!! 'and "Cylde-look! She has Granny's birthmark and has put a tattoo over it! She always had a trashy side"

    Forget the aesthetics and criticism of my looks--they'd never be able to get over the NEKKID part! And neither would I! Nobody wants to see their relatives NEKKID, even if they are in supermodel shape!! The slimmest possibility of finding a relative sexually attractive is just...
