Thanks for the heads up. I removed that avatar.

User Infinitycascade has it too. Imo it would be a good idea to ban imageshack as avatar source.

Not a good idea, there are several people who use imageshack as avatars, not many pictures just disappear like those users pics did.

It would still be good to discourage usage of imageshack though. It's a very clunky system for uploading. Easier alternatives exist (I personally use imgur, because it has a very simple drag'n'drop system).

I'd have to disagree. Imageshack is in my opinion a great uploader. I haven't used imgur, but I have had no problems whatsoever with Imageshack and believe the setup they have to be quite intuitive.

That and I use Imageshack for my avatars... As well as a few images in some threads (mostly WG / VG).

Their website is slow to load, it's clunky, laden with adverts, does not support drag-and-drop uploading, you get unnecessary popups and unless you create an account, you cannot even access the direct image link.

I tested how many clicks it takes to upload to imageshack: 6 (that is not counting navigating the dialogue menu to choose what image to upload)

(Note: on the imgur the click count would be 2, one for the drag and drop and one for accepting the upload. No annoying popups and the website is fast)

Um...
  • Doesn't load slow for me.
  • Define "clunky".
  • Three words: Ad Block Plus (I have no adverts.)
  • I HATE Drag and Drop uploading and always use file browsing loaders.. In order to drag and drop you NEED the folder containing the file open... more often than not I don't have that particular folder open.
  • I have an account.
  • I can access the direct image link and use it for the profile pic.
