FYI, Photobucket is still out. Here is the letter that pops up when I try to log in:
Dear Photobucket Members,
We apologize for the most recent site outage that continues to impact you. While our systems are coming back online, unfortunately, you are part of a small group of Members that are still affected and we sincerely regret any inconvenience this may have caused you.
We experienced a total power outage at our primary datacenter. Because of the abrupt nature of the power outage, our system wasn’t able to utilize backup processes to stay online without interruption. Many of our systems have come back online and we are making progress so that our site is available to all Members. The process for some Members has taken longer than expected and we are working diligently to bring the site up as fast as possible without compromising any photos on the site. Most importantly, your photos are safe!
I’m sorry, I understand your frustration as well as the hardship you may have experienced over the past weeks. We all rely on trusted digital partners to make our lives easier and when they let us down it’s irritating and disruptive.
We’ve learned a lot from this experience and we are taking major steps to prevent this from happening again. We continue to work around the clock until the website is fully functional for every Member and we will keep you updated as things progress. Over the next few months, our focus will shift to rolling out a new website and new mobile apps, built on a more reliable platform.
Thank you for your commitment and loyalty to Photobucket!
When Photobucket does come back online, I am downloading everything I don't already have and closing the account. Guild Launch has given me an easier and more efficient way of posting our signatures. I have already uploaded those images to our website and will be posting instructions within the week.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but, once in place, I will be able to maintain the signatures as before, and it will be a quicker process due to the files being on the same server.
Thanks for your patience.

Huckabee has been assisting me in testing and he has been having issues adding the URL of the file in his Signature Editor. I came up with a possible solution, and I have requested that he and Vashaar follow a different procedure. Mr. Vashaar requested a change to his Namebar, so, if he can add it the image to his Signature Editor, I will do the file replacement in the File Library and see if the file is updated throughout the website. If it works, we will commence the Update of the Namebars fleet wide. More to follow...
