Lightbulb Photobucket Fix

As many of you already are aware, Photobucket pretty much killed the automotive community car forums by disabling hotlinking. Someone developed an add-on that allows you to see these pictures.

chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...fegnfnflicjjgj
firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...-embedded-fix/

I think it is extremely important to save those photos that you can access again with the Photobucket Fix because Photobucket won't be around for much longer and when it disappears all of those photos will be lost forever. There really should be a project undertaken by the mods of the forum to back-up every thread and photos and re-upload them via the forum or a popular hosting site like Imgur to ensure dyno plots, how-to's, etc. don't become useless in the future when Photobucket dies and we all lose tons of valuable information.

There are addons to the phpBB forums that do this at least. I run a Norwegian Mazda board and pulled everything form photobucket and stored locally.
