None of the imagebam thumbnails are showing up and I'm getting a "server not found" message when I go to the imagebam site. A majority of the pics posted here are hosted at imagebam so we'll take a huge hit if imagebam has folded.

In the last months I noticed few issues with this site, sometimes the images won't load properly or the thumbnail is displayed but when I click on one then the site says 404.

I haven't been happy with imagebam or imagevenue mainly because of the porn ads, especially imagevenue. They used to be the best. I used to use imageshack but then they changed their format where the thumbnail won't directly link to the large image.

I wish their was a reliable image host with a proven track record. Jcink is currently working on recoding the whole file system from the ground up so members would be able to upload multiple images but I'm not sure how well it will work for a forum like ours with so many high resolution pics. He mentioned something about a one time payment for disk space so I'll wait and see what he comes up with when he's finished.

One reason why i used imagebam was its file size limit of 3MB while imageshack had ony 1.5MB, now imagevenue has a 3MB file limit I will most likely use them from now on.

Imagebam recently increased their limit to 10 megabytes which would be good for UHQ photos. I used to like imageshack but then they started deleting files that didn't get a lot of views.

I've noticed imagevenue has deleted some files as well because I was checking on some older threads the other day and they removed the pics which kinda sucks. I'm not sure if they're still doing that. If a host says they're going to host images forever then they should honor that.

One host I stay away from anymore is imagehaven because everytime I view one of their hosted pics my anitvirus program activates.

I hate imagehaven as well caught a trojan of that host was not best pleased. Could use the report feature button to let any mods know that the pics are down then perhaps we could refind and rehost them?

I'd rather the report post feature be used for other things such as reporting rules violations rather then reporting broken image links. It wasn't that many pics to be too concerned. I think it was a couple in the Lauren Ambrose thread. If you do come across any broken photo links and you have those pics feel free to reupload them.

I'm really not a fan of the host that gives you a porn pop up. Isn't there a way to make it so it wont pop up a porn link?

Which host are your referring to? I'm using Firefox with the adblocker add on so I'm not seeing any popups.
