this is definitely the right forum to ask especially since it appears that ImageShack have specifically banned hotlinking from The Fashion Spot.

I am so upset over this. Every single image I have ever posted over the time I've been a member has been with ImageShack

Mods, is there any way that you can contact Image Shack and get an explanation?

I posted this in the other thread but I'll post it here too

Quote:
2. Terms of Service
ImageShack® reserves the right to remove or replace any uploaded files, and assumes no liability for lost registration links or misplaced file URLs. Changing ImageShack® linking codes is prohibited without prior permission.
The following types of files constitute "abuse" may not be uploaded under any circumstances:
  • Pornographic files. This includes, but is not limited to, files depicting genitalia, nudity, or sexual situations.
  • Files that are illegal and/or are in violation of any United States laws.
  • Files that infringe on the copyrights of any entity excluding the user.
  • Non-image or non-swf files. This includes archived non-image files.
  • Files intending to harass or spam, or promote anything for commercial profit.
If any domain hotlinks to abusive files, any file hotlinked on that domain will display this image, and the domain's owner must ensure the quick removal of all files hotlinked from ImageShack® on that domain. Domains containing the phrases "toplist", "topsites", "porn", or "hentai" are banned regardless of abuse.


Uploading abusive files may result in the immediate termination of the user's ability to use ImageShack® or any of its provided services. The ImageShack® website may not load, all ImageShack®-hosted files may not load, and all files and accounts related to the abusive files will be subject to deletion. Circumventing ImageShack®'s ability to enforce the ImageShack Terms of Service will result in prosecution.
Maybe the mods could contact them and ask if there's anything that can be done in order to restore hotlinking? Gah..it's so unfair...it's not tFS's fault if something is uploaded which is abusive Maybe contact them and say that they tell you the url of the offending image you will remove it and ban the user so that they don't post again.

Imageshack is always malfunctioning, I think it should not be used on TFS. Same with supload.

There is this new image uploading site which which works really good! Its called divshare and I discovered it when clicking on a picture from lj

http://www.divshare.com/

It doesn't have the obscene ads like imageshack and imagevenue do sometimes, and its pretty fast.

This site is better for smaller images though. The reason is that larger images will be resized on divshare, and then you have to click another link to get the large image.

The reason why I preferred ImageShack over others was because of the "upload from URL" option - it made things so much easier than having to save pics onto my hard drive then upload them again. It also had a pretty cool function built into Firefox which allows you to right-click on an image and instantly upload it.

Does anyone know any other sites besides imageshack and photobucket that have the "upload from URL" option? Thanks.

^ Yeah, I mainly used it so I didn't have to save images to my computer, I could just copy and paste. I even developed a little system

They probably did it because we use so much bandwith.

For some reason all imageshack pics are still working for me, so if anyone really needs pics from a certain post, I'd be happy to PM them to you.

I'm still hoping this is just temporary, though, or can somehow be sorted out. Imagine all the pics gone lost...

More likely a temporary outage than a deliberate block.

Such is life in the world of technology.

But photobucket's bandwidth is a pain.

^^ Supload deletes the images a few weeks after the upload, though.
