I used Fotki for about 15 years too but started migrating to Flickr a few years ago. Fotki wanted to charge too much for the 3tb I was using so I'm moving off the site. Also Fotki lost a lot of images over the years and they moved back to Estonia a few years ago. Flickr charges me $25 a year for a Pro account with unlimited storage which i take advantage of! Great mobile app too. Never have liked Photobucket! Fotki always has had the best way to organize your images.
Have to agree on Photobucket being slow and I'm on a very fast Cable connection, while I still have and will keep my Fotki account I have been using Flickr for the past few years and have to say it works well!
Not much to enlighten, paste photo url in the box and click insert into post and it posts the photo in your post, maybe it doesn't work with photobucket but has worked fine for me. I tried one from Photobucket and see what you mean about the screwy thing. But a simple copy and paste worked on the displayed image in Photobucket as seen below - never did like photobucket
