I'm using chrome if it makes any difference.

Using Safari on a Mac and have the same problem. I looked at a couple of Imagebam pages with Develop>Show page resources and the images are highlighted in red saying "image not found" and "Safari cannot connect to 101.imagebam.dotcom"- the frame just links to nothing- browser cannot connect to the server.

I wonder if it's Imagebam or whoever they buy/resell server space from/for saving money by limiting bandwidth.

Personally I'd never host images with them, can't understand why others do- it's a shoddy service. They still make money from advertising even though it's a 50/50 chance that the image they're purporting to host is actually there.

Good news about 101 server. We can hope that at least some of the images will return.

Hi,

Server 101 is undergoing intensive data recovery efforts still, we do not expect all can be recovered, but we will restore what we can when we can, it is likely to still be 2-3 weeks, & that is only an estimation at this stage, not a firm timetable.

Best regards

Optimistic tbh. I think there's a bit of a literary joke going on by imagebam naming it 101...

It looks like imagevenue.com is down, about 10:45 BST (UK) 17th August, though it was working fine earlier this morning.

It did the same thing yesterday about this time, but then it cleared up. I think it may be a peak upload time is straining the servers.

They all have times where they go off

Imagebam has been showing clear signs of stress for weeks
database cant be connected to or server numbers blinking / still loading

No substitute for sharing it around and diversifying

Plenty of my small sample gallery image posts from 5-10 years ago are like swiss cheese on the forum but the original 3rd party source links and few remaining filehosts links
are still alive.

Default Some statistics for imagebam, imgbox, imagevenue

I have compiled some statistics for the three moslty used hosts. The data is taken from my forum-backup.

The data is not absolutely correct, so take it with a grain of salt. For Example the post date is not necessarily the date of the image upload. Forum-backup does not parse post update dates yet. The posts are mostly taken from Magazine and Classic Pornstars sections.

Usage of image hosts (number of images) per year (post date)


Image download success rate for posts by year (post date)


Image download success rate for posts in 2017 (post date)


Success rate of the second download if the first download failed:
imagebam.com 3.61%
imagevenue.com 9.69%
imgbox.com 2.40%

What I have observed is that image download fails are often clustered. There are posts with dozens of images where most of the images have failed an posts where all images succeeded.

It's been giving me trouble for the last 2 or 3 days, I can log in just fine, look at my folders, change folders, select images to upload, everything fine. But when the upload starts, it sends me back to the home page, logged off, and images weren't uploaded.
Tried it on the Flash uploader and on the basic (i.e. no-Flash) uploader, no luck.

Default P&H Thumbs

Not a problem as such, but I have added some pics recently and the P&H thumbs are now much larger than before. I have checked the box for the smallest size, but they do seem quite big. I added some to an old post and the size difference is quite noticable compared to the earlier added pics.
I have deleted them and then re added, but it's still the same. I assume as no Mod has said anything that this is now the new 'norm' ? Just checking, as I know over the past few months, odd things have been going on with a few Hosts
