Imageshack - no free accounts


Uh, ohhh, Imageshack has removed access to our photos, unless we pay up.

Just noticed this evening my avatar had disappeared, and many of my early images.
Checked a few other members' trip reports up to mid-2009, and all gone. At least on the random threads I viewed.

On accessing one of my 2 accounts, there are zero photos showing.
The other account, an older one, still has 63 pictures showing, but no access for links.
On both of them my Profile states there are zero photos.
There is a statement saying Your 30 day trial has ended. Go Premium Now.

Here are Imageshacks policy changes, no more free accounts.
https://medium.com/@ImageShack/imageshack-content-delivery-policy-changes-3984af30964e

This is somewhat disappointing, to say the least.
If they want to charge it's a pity they don't simply charge new accounts from this point on, instead of refusing access to images already hosted.

Our forum has lost 5 or 6 years of photos for probably most of us who were here back then.

Some of you may decide to pay, sadly I can't afford it. So, my early photos on the forum are gone for good and I will delete my accounts.

Re:


Yes Julie and it's been on their card for years, as they have started to serve adverts with all hosted images and the only way to view them was to download a photo to your computer.

It is for this reason I previously suggested that at the moment only PhotoBucket seems to do the job and it's still free, so I suggest you start using PhotoBucket instead.

As to the dead photos on the forum, nothing much can be done, although I tried to update mine as I came across them and updated the links to their new location in PB.

Re:


Hi Jalal, I hadn't visited the site for years, and probably should have from time to time. I moved over to Photobucket not long after you suggested. I had on occasion thought of changing them over, just seemed like too big a job, with too many megabytes for mobile broadband. One day I might get around to going back through the threads and finding the photos again.... sigh.

In the meantime and the first thing you probably need to update are your avatar and signature pics emoticon

Re:


Yes... I know
I'll have to read up again on how to do it lol
I'd actually been thinking it was time to update the one in my signature at least

Edit: I have searched for the thread on uploading pictures to signature. Found this one, but still can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

I'm using the same image I'd used on Imageshack, same size, just under 10kb. I've tried all 5 options, but none of them work.
I keep getting a red notice
signature: Maximum valid length is 240

I have absolutely no idea what that means.

Tearing my hair out. I remember tearing my hair out the first time I tried to do this, all those years ago.

Edit 2: Finally found some details: 403 x 84. Does that mean anything in relation to the 240?

Hi Julie,

You will probably find it is the total number of characters in your signature which comprises the address of the signature pic and the text you have.
So count them all up and if more than 240 then you might have to either remove some of the text, change the formatting to remove spaces or change the picture filename on the photo hosting site to be shorter.

Thanks Kev. Without a pic my character count is 124. Can't shorten the url.
Might have to set up something like Jalal's.

Try shortening the URL with www.tinyurl.com

All spaces count as characters in the character limit set by Runboard.

Re:


Thanks Jalal, learning something new.

Edit:
Think I'm going to need step by step instructions.
Or can you point me to the right thread as I could only find the one linked above, which isn't clear.

Which link am I supposed to copy?

I thought it was IMG. When I put it into tinyurl it tells me it's not a valid url. Shouldn't it be correct?

The url I get starts with [URL] and ends with [IMG][URL]

Is it the same option for both the avatar and the signature?

Helllpppp.....

Another edit: OK, I've got the avatar sorted, but the signature pic is not recognised by tinyurl. I even uploaded the image a second time and same thing happens..... :/

A further edit: I give up.

Nope you need to copy the Direct Link to the image into TinyURL and get it shortened.
