    Imagebam / Imgbox (shuts down on June 30th?)

    If you use them & your images go down, don't start freaking out as they are moving servers.

    On April 7th 2015 between Midnight and 09:00 EDT, a relocation of our servers will be performed. Service may be interrupted during this period.
    And we all know how smoothly server moves can go so don't be surprised if it takes a while longer than that.

    Edit: I was also told on another forum that if you use imgbox, they are also doing the same thing at the same time.
    I guess they either own both of the imagehosts, or they are on the same servers.

    I believe such things have been captured on film once or twice:

    BTW: Imagebam seems to be down. Like totally down.
    In case it's dead dead, let me say now that there is absolutely no way in hell that I'm reuploading all those pics.

    Personally I noticed absolutely no interruption of service whatsoever when they were supposed to relocate their servers on the 7th.
    I'm hoping they blew it off until tonight and something screwed up.

    I have a number of 'bam galleries bookmarked, going back
    several months, and around half the pictures still seem to
    work.

    The important thing is that the website itself is back up and running.
    Everything (even the upload site) was down last night and that scared the sh*t out of me.

    I do have some things on sharenxs but not very many.
    I would use them more often but that uploading system of theirs is a complete pain in the ass.
    Is it really so hard to not fix it where you select all of your photos and then hit send like every other imagehost out there..?
    I sent them a couple of support requests asking about that and they didn't even bother responding.

    That and the lack of equalness (I know that's not a real word) in the size of their horizontal and vertical large photos really bug me.
    If the thumbnail is 500x333 vertical than the horizontal should be 333x500 not something completely different.
    The horizontal used to be freakishly huge now it's freakishly tiny.

    I have seen some weirdos who rotate their preview pics, to
    make them uniform.

    Just as a word of warning, some of their images are showing "This image is temporarily not available."
    I noticed it elsewhere and some of my images are down and others are working just fine.
    I assume someone is either working on it but as usual, no news from the site itself.

    looks like imagebam is the latest host to be closing down

    Good thing I haven't been spending months replacing hundreds
    of dead preview pics by putting new ones on imagebam.








    no wait, that's exactly what I've been doing.
