Default Important information concerning Imagebam & Imagebox

By now all current members must all be aware of the above issue, those 2 hosts will be closing as at June 30 and untold thousands of posts will be dead. I have added a note on my signature confirming I will be re-upping what I can as almost everything I posted is backed up.
The Mods are busy trying to save what we can but it would help if members could add a note to their signature confirming whether they are in a position to re-up any dead posts.
If you have posted in Celebs please either add a note to your signature or leave a notice here advising what you can or cannot re-up.

I'm pretty certain I've replaced all my Imagebam links on all VEF posts now.

I have everything I've posted stored, so I am able to re-upload it all.

Fortunately we had at least a little notice from Imagebam so that made replacing easier.

I found it simplest to go to - User CP - Your Profile - Statistics, then selected "Find all posts by PoloMintGuy" to bring up a list of all my posts.

I then worked my way through them, quickest for me to just download then re-upload to new site & edit post with new links.

I also left a note in the "Reason for editing" commenting it was replaced due to Imagebam closure so I could quickly spot posts I've fixed.

Surprisingly did not take as long as you might think, granted my posts number in the hundreds rather than thousands.

Also a lot of my really old posts were ImageVenue already.

Trying to use a mix of image hosts now.

Best of luck to other Members & the Moderators in replacing images.

Among approx. 7500 posts with an average of 50-100 pics per post that I need to review (or more likely facing the vanishing), there are some from the Celebs-Sections.

Not too many and (gladfully) with ~ 5-10 pics per post mainly.

I have started to re-up already and I guess that I can restore most of them over the days/weeks to come.

All my posts are backed, so I'll reup them. Of course with "a bit" time.
Every time I post a new pic in a thread, I reup all my previous posts.

Imagebam and Imgbox were sold, not closed. Both currently are working better than ever.

We know they did not close and there was a large all site message to that effect several months ago after it became clear they were not closing.
As the original post states Imagebam had clearly stated they were closing and even gave a closing date which is why we advised members to help backing content up.
I personally spent many hours over several months downloading thousands of images off Imagebam and reposting them on other hosts.
As did plenty other members some of whom went far beyond what we could have expected.

As for them being better than ever I can only speak with regards to my experiences as a Mod here and I point you to this post as an example
