Yes it's happened again, I've had my avatar images on a site so long that it's went under.  (Makes me feel ancient.)  Any suggestions on who I should use this time?  I prefer free sites because I'm cheap.

there's this site known as BYOAC that can host your images.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.  Finally got a minute to fix this.... put footers on imgur and uploaded my avatar here since it's small.

There is an addon for Chrome and Firefox that will bypass the block put on images shared from photobucket, so if you are looking at an old thread in a forum that had images that are now blocked but still exist out there, the addon will fix it and you can see them again.

I either host my own images on my own website or use the forum to do it.  I never trusted third party hosts that don't charge anything, it's an unstable business model.

Nice - Thanks for the heads up on this addon - it makes viewing the old topics much better !

Seriously? We're talking about what, 60kb? That's a speck of dust by today's standards.
NO MORE!!
