I have migrated to Google Picasa although I haven't had any problems with Photobucket it's just that I already have a Google account and it has a lot of free features of which Picasa is one, it's also easy to upload images to.

even moving them within Photobucket, lets say from one file to another, will break the link and you have to redo them. You may have also exceeded your bandwidth. I use the pay service and have never had a problem.

I have had nothing but problems with them. I paid for one year subscription and can barely view my photos. It often times out. I think their site has grown in popularity because it is free to sign up but they haven't added additional bandwidth to cope with the increased traffic to their site. I too am dumping them. The site just plain doesn't work anymore.

I have switched to google which has a lot of bandwidth and the money to scale their servers to accommodate any increased traffic.
Google is free too.
