Re: PhotoBucket Update


That's why I haven't rushed. I'm waiting to see if someone finds a gem in all of the options. I don't want to have to do this again real soon.

Good question, Jox. I wouldn't trust Tinypic, since they're owned by Photobucket.

Ed, I re-created your header background using this svg that's hosted by Runboard, which you're free to use.

I also found your "New Topic" button on Wayback Machine, but couldn't find the reply button there.

I'm posting this button here as a data URI, which is too many characters to fit into your custom language set, but at least you can save it from here.

You're awesome Lesa, Thanks so much.

Dang it all to heck. Why don't image hosts put in hotlink protection when they don't want people to hotlink? It's not hard to do!

You're welcome, Brian. The main thing is to save all your images to your computer immediately if you don't already have them, and start looking for a new host. Pastor Rick discovered ][sign in to see URL], which sounds promising, although I haven't had time to check it out myself, and the site is mostly in German. Even so, it sounds like the site is easy enough to figure out, even if you don't know German. emoticon

Re: PhotoBucket Update


If it would help I could create a guide. No idea how to do that, but I'm willing. Or I could offer to give Abload an English version of their text.

I'm not sure they want all that attention, though... emoticon

What frustrates me is that Imgur provides the links for bulletin boards. I suppose that is because you are allowed to post a bird picture for people to see, just not use their site to build a message board.

Susa, a bird picture is content, and it specifically says not to use them to host content for posting elsewhere. It just doesn't make sense that they provide code for doing something they don't want people to do.

Firle, that would be great! If you're not sure they would want the attention, maybe you can ask them first. emoticon

Re:


I wrote to Imgur, to find out if it can be used on message boards. I kept getting mixed messages from them, especially when I read on their message board that Imgur CAN be used on message boards, but yet I didn't think that the Terms of Service sounded like Imgur can be used on message boards.

Here is the message I sent to them:
quote:

I just have a few questions. I am not having difficulties with my account. Is it OK to use Imgur pictures on message boards? Is it OK to use Imgur pictures for an avatar on a message board, or a signature there? Is it OK to use an Imgur picture as a background on a message board? Your terms of service does not appear any of this is allowed, but on the Imgur forums, it does appear allowed. I am searching for a Photobucket replacement.



Here is the message I got back. I think this was a generic reply:
quote:

Hi there,

Thanks for writing to Imgur Support. We've detected that you're asking about third party image hosting or sharing images to forums.

You can upload images by following these steps: [sign in to see URL] After upload, you can hover over an image to get the share links for posting on a forum or sending to someone.

If you'd like to add images to your website or blog, we recommend using Imgur's embed unit to easily make the post visible. More information on finding the embed link can be found here: [sign in to see URL]

You're welcome to use Imgur to host your images, as long as they do not break our Terms of Service ([sign in to see URL]). Imgur's Terms of Service prohibits using Imgur for a content delivery network, hotlinking adult or illegal images, torrents, image hosting for selling things and/or commercial purposes, or sites which copy Imgur's own functionality. Imgur's intended use is not as a CDN, but rather as a platform to upload, share and browse entertaining images.

If your question is still unanswered, please respond directly to this message if you would like a response from support. Once you respond we’ll be in touch as soon as we can. In the meantime please enjoy this cat tax ([sign in to see URL]).

Best,
Imgur Support




So I wrote back and asked:

quote:

I don't understand what a "content delivery network" is. Does it relate to message boards?




They then sent me a personal message and this is what it said:

quote:

Hi there Susa,

Thank you for writing in. I am happy to go over this with you.

A content delivery network is a service that hosts images for other websites, such as avatars, background, etc. This means that your forum is not able to use Imgur for these purposes. Using Imgur to share content within threads is allowed.

We are always here to help if you have any other questions, comments or concerns.

Thank you,

Isaac K.



------------------------------

He did not mention signature pictures, but I think those would be lumped in with avatars, so that would mean they are a no, no.
