The advantage of hosting the pics yourself. I've still got all of mine, so all they need to do is get the links right.

I was going to say, I think everything is immediately rehosted. Was that a bug?

Images have automatically been re-hosted for years.

To bypass this, you add a ? to the end of the URL. So if your image URL is http://i.imgur.com/5LHUhXP.png, you'd enter the following:

[img]http://i.imgur.com/5LHUhXP.png?[/img]

lol if you let this forum host/rehost your pictures instead of a dedicated image host like imgur.

What I meant is that by hosting myself (even if it re-hosts), rather than depending on image storage on the forum, I still have copies of them even if the IB database explodes.

The ? to prevent re-hosting is useful, I'll have to start using that.

I've seen someone as well as you, and I'm betting it was Savington, talking about hosing images instead of the forum.

I kind of laughed a bit inside, because it seemed the forum went ahead and used itself anyway.

Now I know...

I hope the images took the god forsaken image uploader with them. Might be worth it then.

/\ I have never agreed with you more on anything.

The passion with which I hate the stupid uploader is strong.

Dolan said it's getting changed or removed or something. I hope he keeps his word.
