I seem to be having a spot of trouble with that here. I think something might be outdated, because I keep getting an error when I try to upload, and this recent upload of mine to Photobucket and then through the URL system for an avatar gave the "image missing" Photobucket icon instead of the thing I just uploaded and is clearly still in my bucket. I knew this forum was old and out of date, but jeez. No pressure, though. I'm fine with not much right yet, at least until I can see if I can kick-boot this forum back into gear with some doodles at a later, undetermined point.

Hmm That's strange. I'm 100% sure it's Photobuncket, not the forum. Even though forum is inactive I keep it Core and everything upto date. Also I have just changed my avatar to something I uploaded to Tinypics.

Ah, thanks. I used tinypic and it worked just fine. I dunno, man. That was weird.

I'm no longer a fan of Photobucket. They used to be good but not anymore. Tinypic is pretty good for simple stuff.

My problem with tinypic is that it's where I used to store my images on MR, and as you can see in the early half of my thread, they got rid of all of it. Photobucket, on the other hand, gives me a hand in giving me a way to avoid my stuff getting deleted. It's not perfect; I don't think any image site is, but it's what I'll be using to upload my art gallery with.

Did you have those imagines in your account or did you upload those without an account ?

I admit that I didn't (and still don't) have an account. Still, I've already made one for Photobucket, and eh, I just hate making new accounts for things. That's why I would have preferred to have not made an account on Photobucket either, but it just seemed like the easiest option at the time, and now that I have it, well...I don't exactly want to make another account for a site that p much does the same thing.

I think Tinypics remove those random account-less images if those images don't get any traffic. Right now the best place to keep your images hosted is Imgur.

Good to know, I guess. I've uploaded some stuff without an account there before, but eh, like I said, I've already made one account for an image-hosting site. :-\

Well don't put too much faith on Photobucket though. We did and learned the lesson hard way. We used to recommend it to everyone and you can see the result in early MR topics.
