Good for forum history, old build threads etc.
They left it too long though, people were forced to find an alternative.
Who will go back to the platform that screwed everyone over in the search for money?

I'm late to the party as far as using PB for uploading pics; they had already started screwing people over, but having seen the chaos they created in long build stories etc, my reaction would be "heck no!". They have clearly only reversed their money grab because it must have cost them so many users, so there is no guarantee that once the user base is up once more, they won't try and do the same thing again. Who wants to document weeks/months of work on a project, just to have it all vanish in yet another money grabbing attempt? Hopefully other hosting sites have seen what happened to PB, so will be extremely wary of doing it themselves.

I'll stick with PostImage even though they did change all my photo links with no notification, I had to go and edit all my topics, not fun.

I think this will have cost them a lot of users. Why go back now if you've found a good alternative? :S
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams
