no, i'm not closing quibblercons
All of my icons are currently showing up as broken images, thanks to Photobucket. :( I've contacted their support staff and received a message back saying that it is a "known issue affecting several users" and that their engineering team is troubleshooting the issue. Whatever the problem is, it doesn't seem to have hit the separate account I have for layout images. Fingers crossed everything comes back soon, and in the meantime, please accept my passing on "sincere apologies" from the Photobucket staff. :P
ETA:(4/19) It seems like the issue is fixed! I plan to download all of my albums over the next few days and keep them safe on an old external hard drive, just in case something like this happens again.
ETA 2:(4/25) And now it's happening to the layouts. I did download zips of all the layout images last week, so if you're suffering a broken layout (I mentioned rehosting was a good idea, but I'm betting not everyone did), please comment on this entry with the name of the layout you need the images for and I will upload the zipped folder (not the images themselves, you do need to find your own image host!) and link you. :)
