    Two imagehosts (imagebam & imgbox) are shutting down

    Just a general warning to the forum that two of the more prominent imagehosts, imagebam and imgbox, are closing down on June 30th, 2017. If you have images on their servers, you'll need to download/backup those files. Many of our regular posters have used these services for years and are set to lose tens of thousands of images. If you have any favourite threads with images from these hosts, you might want to download them as soon as possible.

    The BU forum crew will be pruning away the dead posts but it'll be quite a job. If you come across a thread or a post with dead image links, please hit the 'report post' icon (it looks like a triangle with an exclamation mark in the centre).

    And if anyone of our members knows a good and reliable imagehost (just like imagebam or imgbox) please do tell.

    What makes an imagehost good?

    - Pictures and thumbnails/video/movies must stay visible for a long time (best is for ever), and not deleted after a short period of time when not visited.
    - Must NOT pay for content, to prevent rubbish posts.
    - Easy to use.
    - Provide resonable thumbnail sizes (250x250, 300x300)
    - a < previous - next > option would be nice.
    - Hosting without login for privacy of our members.
    Just because I rock doesn't mean I'm made of stone.
