Okay.



HOW, JUST HOW, DID PHOTOBUCKET MANAGE TO REPLACE ALL MY LIVEJOURNAL USERPICS WITH THEIR PLACEHOLDER IMAGE?!

HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE??

My userpics aren't even hosted ON Photobucket!!!


I'm... quite scared right now. :O



Fortunately, my DW userpics don't seem to be affected for whatever reason. (YET...)



You know what? I never thought I'd say this, but I think I decided to leave LJ for real and move to DW permanently. It was so much easier when I only had one journal to maintain... (Though while I highly doubt I'll change my mind about this, please, if you list me as a friend on here, keep me listed just in case).

Goodbye, LiveJournal.

When you uploaded your icons, did you upload them straight from your computer to LJ or did you give LJ a photobucket URL to pull them from? If it was the former, that would be so weird. If it was the latter, that might explain it.

I don't have more than one journal. I found DW too expensive to pay for a paid account to customize.

Yes, I uploaded them straight from my computer to LJ - all of them! And at no point have I ever used Photobucket! So how did they still manage to replace my LJ userpics?? O_O

You'll be happy to know that I decided against leaving LJ, though...

It's almost April 2 so I can finally give you a straight answer...

April Fools! :)

I uploaded several copies of Photobucket's placeholder image and moved all my keywords to them for the day to make it LOOK like they'd been taken down somehow.
