Image Upload would be a welcome addition to the menu options
« on: November 04, 2007, 05:04:39 PM »
ImageShack is now so overloaded, that many attempts to access end us in timeouts - which is frustrating as Hell.

The ability to upload images to this forum's server would make life much easier (and is a function offered by a growing number of foum engines).  If storage requirements are a concern, the function is usually "tune-able" in terms of maximum size thresholds and incorporates an image resize function for any images larger than the threshold.

(Besides, HDD-based storage is becoming very cheap - approaching R1.00 per 1GB)

Puhleeezzz?

Agree on Photobucket, by far the best!

And I am always the 99,999th winner!

You can't lose with Photobucket.

But what I worry about with those generic file repositories is that you are not guaranteed that the image file will remain in that location. So if you post a pic in a discussion board, it could disappear at any time. So historical posts could lose their images; in some cases these images are essential to the message/thread...

I imagine that HDD space is not the problem, more like the bandwidth.

SA b/w costs are huge compared to international hosts.

I keep a scratch pad folder on my own web site for retaining images that I upload to web pages that don't have a respository for images.

Sorry guys, the limit was set to a very small value (10MB) and it had filled up! Neither storage nor bandwidth are a problem so feel free to use the feature :)

By the way, just so it's clear - uploading of attachments is done via the full "reply" function (not the quick reply below all threads), by clicking on additional options. Please see the attached screenshot :P
