image hosting

Post by lovebug »

ive created an image hosting site to help save on the forum storage space and bandwidth and you're welcome to use it if you need to
it works like any other image hosting site, upload an image (up to 10MB maximum each) and get a hotlink url

there is room for up to 30,000 images and they are stored in the original size and quality

--- edit --- IanS raised a good point, I cant guarentee the image hosting will be around forever but i've been using the same hosting for over 10 years without any issues


I dont want to post the link in case bots start abusing it so here it is in image form

--- edit --- as the feedback shows that this is not required I have deleted the upload script, thanks

What guarantee is there that the site and hosting will still be there in a few weeks/months/years. We've already lost images that were hosted on random external sites. I vote No.

"You may select up to 2 options" it does seem odd that I could vote Yes and No.

It's a kind offer, but I too suggest (strongly) that the forum content is best kept all together, on the forum. Our admins can worry about backups and disk space, but our threads won't rot if a site vanishes. I'm sure if there were any problem of costs, the membership would respond generously to a funding drive.
