To my knowledge I have never linked any images to any where else. Would it help also if I delete the pictures I have and save locally on my HD if I still need them ? The upgrades sounds like a big step forward so congrats on making the move and hopefully it will all pay for itself. It will not affect me if you remove that privilege as there are many sites to upload images to if need be.

No externally shared pics here, but hey, I don't post that much - I'm a reader!

You know what I would like to see though? NUMBERED POSTS!!! It makes finding where you left off in a post so much easier. Is that something that would be possible through this transition/upgrade?

i have a few images that i keep on here for storage, not for sharing.

if it is necessary, i can relocate them to other photo-storing sites.

although im positive that my little stash is a drop in the bucket.

Interesting stuff Skeptic, looks like this will be an interesting time to be part of ATS. As for the image hosting, I prefer uploading to imgur and using the standard [*img*]URL HERE[*/img*] tags as opposed to the one here on ATS.
edit on 5-5-2015 by 2Spooky4Me because: Had to fix the tags as ATS thought I was trying to post a picture.

The images I upload to ATS are just used on the site, I have other websites that I use for artwork and also others for image sharing on specific image sharing sites like imageshack etc.

Are any of you using your upload service here as a means for image-sharing on other websites? And if so, would it kill you if we stopped?


No and please do so.

I'd rather not be the face of a thousand new Twitter bots or plastered over Facebook.


I trust ATS members not to spread images about, not so much other websites who can access them.

I'm not linking back to pictures here at all, so stopping that wouldn't affect me at all.


Ditto for us too.

Every single image I have ever uploaded to ATS servers is solely related to my avatar or a post/thread on ATS.
If you don't want to be an unpaid host for other people linking from other sites I will not shed a tear.

I consider myself as a relatively intelligent woman but you are beyond definition. I am a newbie on ATS and clicked your link on this thread. WOW! No pun intended.

We're also going with server specifications I call, "Thor's Hammer" with 96BG of ram, dual Raid-10 hard drive arrays, and 24 cores. (for those who know what that means, it's pretty good)

Sweet! You might want to change that BG to GB, though.

If we disallow sites other than ours from using our CDN bandwidth, we'd be able to see a significant cost-savings.

Seems unanimous so far, and I agree. Do it.

No problem here with whatever you do.

And before we depart from this platform, I have to say Thanks for all the fish

Ditto!

I'm not an important member who does important things but,
if you're looking for votes then go for it!
Whatever improves the site and saves money sounds like a good thing...
It is wonderful that you consult your base...

I'm glad the donations helped. I never was able to locate any info on how you were doing with all of that...

There are many images sites for that purpose and never wanted to cost ATS needless waste of bandwidth for that purpose.

Please shut that down and use the saving to support our life support systems and community! Very pleased ATS was able to bounce back so quickly...

Thanks to all ATS staff and mods (even the ones that had smacked me when I forgot TnC's) lol...
