So I have a problem with Photobucket, is there something I need to change in the code to make it show up? When I put an Image, it only says "User Image" Instead ofseeing the actual image using the IMG tag bb code... what's going on, it's been going on for days. It might be Photobucket's fault but I just also want to know if there's any solution I could do through gaia. Thanks!

Is this image showing up?

User Image

Edit (PLEASE note that is only a temporary solution): thanks to tubercular skies for letting me know to add an "o" before i560 so the picture shows up fine. here is the code i used to insert the image:

I have messaged someone in facebook photobucket and they said:
Photobucket:Thanks for sending this over. There is a bug causing this problem. Our engineers are looking into it right now. I will update you as soon as I have more info.

I've also had a User Image problems too. Some images from Photobucket I can see, while others I can't (including images from Tinypic), and it's always the same ones, so they don't change if I were to refresh the page. Strangely, it only seems to apply to Firefox, everything seems to load fine on Chrome and IE. So I'm not sure if there's a problem with my Firefox, or it could be another error related to the Valentines event (because for me that was when the problem started).

Same here - I noticed when my signature didnt show up in the valentines day event - I figured
maybe It was just for that forum or something but I checked my other RP posts and Its all
'User Image' outta nowhere!

Same here, my photobucket images aren't showing up, and I'm using firefox. I tried on IE and GC and both displayed the images correctly. And It is not for all of the pictures, only for certain ones. I've changed the link for the images, and once I submit the new post edited, the images show up, but as soon as I reload the page, there it is again, the "User Image".
It is really annoying.

                                                              Glad I'm not the only one that is having this problem.
                                                              Got sad when I couldn't see my sig or my post formats for RPing.
                                                              using firefox 18.0 btw. In case anyone is curious.

According to some searches I've done, this problem dates back to this time last year at least.

Having the same problem here too.
It's not photobucket. When I paste the direct
link to my image in the url box it shows up fine.
I'm pretty sure gaia is the one acting wonky.

Maybe It is has to do something with the event..Kinda hard to some to see how It would be so
but I mean..alot of people have been saying that this problem
started right when the event came up.

I can see my images in every browser I've tried except Firefox. Hmm.
