Damn it, look like the site I've been using to host images for the past year or so is changing: https://www.imageupload.co.uk/

As a result, all my hosted images in numerous threads on EAB no longer exist

Hosting mine on https://imgur.com/ here, oldest pics are 6 years and counting.
Might have some laggy browsing server issues from time to time, but knowing reddit, the biggest site on the interwebz is behind it, it's not going anywhere anytime soon

imgur is quite alright, it even generates a share link for you to put images in bbcode so you can directly plop it down in EAB.

Thanks guys, I used to use http://tinypic.com/ but the catcha manual entry window and advertisements afterwards annoyed me...

I'll try some of the others

Like Shoonay & Gimbal have mentioned imgur is pretty OK for hosting and I've been using it since time began.

It's worth a look Damien.

I wonder if you can directly link to something like Google Drive or Drop Box (assuming the image is made public). That'd be a nice way to fix it.

Well, not the part of having to redo all those links, but rather the sharing of images.

I'd run out of space on my allowed quota; and I already have an extended one being a GM...

That is sad news.

On different forum I used TinyPic quite often. Should probably let them know about this.

For the images posted in your thread Damien, i have used tinypic.com & imgbb.com .
Think it's time to use the second one for all pictures (it seems I was inspired the day I posted the comment 2059 )

Maybe give a try to imgBB my friend
(until the day when it too will close down for a fee-based solution).

Thanks malko

I've tried https://imgbb.com/ before but... the problem is that you don't see the full image unless you click on the embedded image and then click again i.e.

ImgBB:


TinyPic:

That doesn't work for me

Just uploaded the image again and the original link is (without spaces before URL & IMG):

Code:
[ url=https://ibb.co/tQJxxTD][ img]https://i.ibb.co/NtymmdK/2s93wqf.png[ /img][ /url]
If I then just paste the following (without spaces before IMG):

Code:
[ img]https://i.ibb.co/NtymmdK/2s93wqf.png[ /img]
This is the result:

Send a message via ICQ to lilalurl
Copy the image address from the download link (bottom right of the first picture page you posted in #17, besides "like" and "share") and use that between the [img] tags:
