Re: TinyPic

Recommended Posts

Perusing the boards lately, it seems many are still attempting to link images directly from TinyPic. However, TinyPic has ceased operations, resulting in those direct-linked images to be replaced by a frowny-faced emoji that, in most cases, takes up much more real estate on screens than the original image.


From TinyPic.com:


Due to an inability to support a high-quality free digital service that derives 100% of its revenue from ever declining on-site revenues, TinyPic has shut down its operations. As previously announced on this website, September 16, 2019 was the last day for our users to access their accounts to download their images.


What we as a moderating team would ask every member to do is review the content he/she has posted to the boards -- especially (but not limited to) signatures -- and, if it is affected by this shutdown, move it to another image-hosting site, such as Imgur. I would personally steer clear of Google Photos, as I have noticed some issues on the boards with images hosted there refusing to load.


Any questions, please feel free to ask them here.
