Hey guys. Just wanted to say that I'm ass-deep in Avengers icons - 1,300 so far. I'll have them posted in a few days, but Photobucket is making it extremely difficult. They've decided that all new images will now have scrambled file names by default to protect my privacy! ... I don't need privacy, and I don't need their PC BS. I was already ticked off that they were deleting my images with their delusional censorship, but now this? It's going to cause so much more trouble than it could ever be worth. They needed to send out an e-mail about this change, and it should have included an option to turn off the scrambling, or simply just recommended changing your files to be scrambled. But they're messing with my shit now and I'm getting angry
. Sent them an e-mail. They won't like me when I'm angry. Thanks for your patience, compadres! <3EDIT:
I still have not received word from Photobucket - however, I've uploaded several images today, and none of them were weighed down with scrambled file names. They're uploading just as I have them named on my computer. So, check things out and let me know if it's site-wide or just a fluke! Lol. Either way, I hope this fixes things - for us icon makers' sakes.THEIR RESPONSE:Shawn (Photobucket Customer Support Home)

The decision to scramble all URLs (i.e. randomize file names) was done to ensure the privacy of all customer's images. Photobucket has listened to the concerns that our users expressed, especially those using Photobucket for business purposes. As a result, it is again the customer's option to scramble OR maintain the original file names of new uploads.
