Terrible Image Uploads have your say

Who do we directly complain to regarding the hopeless uploading of images to the site? I've stopped uploading because it's too difficult and I'm reluctant to hand my images over to an image hosting service.

What do you think about all this?
Should we be able to have our images auto resized and swiftly uploaded?

Get an Imgur account. Couldn't be easier.

Most forums are the same.

I for one am not interested in having loads of accounts for anything and everything. My email, Ebay etc. is even trying to get my cell phone number now as apparently it makes me more secure. Starting to p#ss me off

What I said in my post was:
"I'm reluctant to hand my images over to an image hosting service."

Because when Imgur goes down the toilet or changes it's policies the site will be full of question marks or ads for you to sign up.

I have to place my images with a hosting service so that I can post easily?
Fuck off

Don't like it? Code your own forum, host it on your servers and invite your friends.

I have all my images, that I need to reference on the various forums I partake in, hosted on Photobucket.

All those images also reside on my laptop. If Photobucket goes belly-up I really don't care.

Oh you have your images stored on your computer as well, that's a good idea
Backup on an external HD as well? Now that's ground breaking.

I completely agree with the OP, this is the only forum I use that is still stuck in the year 2000 when it comes to images! I just don't have the time to faff around hosting images on other sites like photo bucket. It makes a big difference to the amount I post as most stuff I do is photos rather than text.

Most forums are not the same, none of the others I use require you to use image hosting these days.

Maybe they could look at the UK forum as whatever software they use, it's supremely easy to use and allows for full size images. Here's an example of a thread I created on there. Took all of a couple of mins to upload all the pics directly into the relevant posts. No third party hosting required.
