I think Iâ€™m collecting pet peeves per encounter, and I know one new blogging pet peeve for me now: Photobucketâ€™s new interface. Back in the â€œdays of old,â€ you can upload any ole photo in Photobucket, and thatâ€™s that. Nowadays, you have to jump through hoops in order to just finish uploading one picture. One picture!
There are these fields for tags and labels that make me wonder if they are so necessary for MY life. I know that itâ€™s necessary for Google and for others needing to find photos in a faster, easier manner, but why should they cramp MY life in order to serve the rest of humanity? These should be optional!
Err. Okay, enough tantrums. But I do have a point, right? Services like tags are better left optional, because for those who are into speed, like me, these just eat up the minutes, and eat up the time that it would take for me to actually finish a single post. Which is something that I would wish I wouldnâ€™t have to go through. I want to be done with my posts fast, because I have other things to do, too. Like clean my room. Or wash clothes. Or enjoy the sunset. :p
See, services like these are great for the consumer, and even better for the capitalistic companies, but some days, there are just moments that I wish that the scales would be tipped more towards the consumer, rather than the capitalistic bigwigs.
Other than that, Iâ€™m pretty happy with Photobucket.com. I donâ€™t see the â€œbandwidth exceededâ€ icon in any of my pics just yet, so I am pleased. Besides, I would rather create another account, than dance on the possibility of coming across that ugly golden frog that ImageShack uses for their overloaded accounts. I think I can live with the annoying tag fields. Just no golden frogs, please!
