Its not just you, don't use photobucket unless you want to pay a monthly subscription, photobucket no longer lets you host pictures for third party sharing unless you pay,
photobucket changed everything about 6 months ago to make people pay for third party hosting, its not just this forum but everywhere photos have been posted using free PB accounts,
there are thousands of forums all over the world as well as blogs, vlogs and eBay sellers who were caught up in photobuckets changes,
most newer posts on forums will have photos that you can see as a lot of people changed & hosted there pics with a different hosting service,
I joined this one to host my pics on forums that don't let you direct upload and it has been working great for me

unfortunately all older posts that were posted using photobucket hosted images will remain un viewable unless the original poster edits every photo they originally posted whilst using photobucket, it happened everywhere and there are thousands of posts affected around the world

you can read about the full story on many google links in the below google search,

^^ That's pretty much it!! Photobucket is holding all those pics hostage & demanding ransom from the owners - a fair whack too, amounting to more than just a couple of 100 $$ per annum!! :irked:
