Use .com image hosting site closing
« on: August 27, 2019, 08:48:48 PM »
Hi

We have a problem Houston

I have just been onto the image hosting site that I use  Use.com and was greeted with this merssage.


Use.com is no longer accepting uploads.

The site will be closing effective September 20th, 2019

We will continue to serve images until September 4th, 2019

Registered members will be able to request a download of ALL their currently hosted images and videos through September 15th, 2019. Click for details

Your profile page will be available until September 20th, 2019 or the expiration date of your processed archive download, whichever is latest.

This means all the images in my current topic CONWAY will disappear

My opologies to anyone who is following along

Cheers

Rich

Can you move them to another site?  Like the Coppermine server that Ade has made available for us? It does take a little time and effort, but it would be a shame to lose all the pictures in your build!

What a bummer!! Seems to be happening more and more and I doubt this will be the last one sadly.

Hi

Just signed up to Imgur. Its free and looks ok.

There is an upload limit of 50 images per hour but no upload limit per account

Cheers
