I swapped some sets to pixhost and I am seeing this too.

Hopefully the mods will wait awhile before deleting these, I may switch them back to Imagebam after waiting a few weeks to see how things shake out.

On my phone, PixHost does not open the thumbnail, instead throwing into an endless loop of dodgy ad sites. Unusable.

Could you (or anybody else) give an example? I opened a few of my posts and did not see a problem, but if any thumbnails/pictures are missing I would like to know.

There is no panacea when it comes to imagehosts. Whenever a host is considered decent, many people start to use it, and sooner or later the host cannot manage the increased volume and load.

Default Imagebam Conned Us

After many users put in a lot of hard work to save their pictures. Imagebam announced they were not closing after all. I'm beginning to wonder if it was all a ruse to get everyone to maintain their site without having to pay anyone to do it.

I can tell you with absolute certainty that this is not the case. If Imagebam/Imgbox had been unable to secure a new hosting solution that would fit their needs, they would have definitely shut down services. There is a lot of work involved when it comes to a switch like this so ongoing maintenance will be the norm for now.

I continually hear this - hard work put in to save uploaded images to hosts

Which reminds me of ex-farmer who got into the habit of uploading files to filehosts and then deleting them from his computer - to save space presumably.

Big mistake because as even the hosts who claim images are kept for ever say


Imagebam - Should I keep a backup of my images on my local machine?

Last Updated: Sep 15, 2015 10:49AM PDT

Yes, you should always backup your files.


The definition of saved pics or films or clips or scans should be saved on a

external hard drive (encrytped) , dvd , usb flash drive etc offline

I left out hard drive as that makes saving a failing system messy
and keeps you 1 step beyond the real threat of ransomware


The cloud - file & image hosts should always be treated as temporary storage at best
even if files are up for many many years because they close - ie some image
servers go bad - backups fail and dmca notices are always being sent out in the tens of millions.



Best thing to come out of this is its made uploaders revisit a lot of older posts
which in reality the majority rarely do unless their reminded by a thanks received
or are in the small group who systematically up , check periodically & re-up when required.

Its made them think about the risks associated with having too much content on one host



Downloaders have been going out of their way to visit what they value

Result saved copies now in existence have increased immeasurebly

The more members who save content the more likely it survives when original uploaders have had enough

If I'm wrong, then I apologize. I'm having a Donald Trump blame everybody moment.

Ok. It's not any kind of great problem. All and everything is available through something. Mostly I wanted to inform about it.

Does anybody know, in which countries p&h is blocked?

Edit: I get the info from a member via PM, that Malaysia seems to block P&H too.
