ImageShaft


General info
Unfortunately there are many cobblepot sites on the internet. One of these is the popular website image shack. They have decided to ban this site because it supports "warez and porn", whilst the real reason is more clearly the amount of bandwidth we were using.

Unfortunately this means that when you post, you can no longer use image shack to host your images. I would stongly recommend:
  • http://www.imagebam.com/
  • http://www.yeuxverts.net/

Both of these sites support "adult" content, have no bandwidth restrictions and don't delete images willy-nilly like image shack.

Apologies for the inconvienance of this, however this is entirely image shack's decision.

Fixing existing threads

If you see this image in any thread....
Image
If you encounter a thread with the above image, the images are still hosted on image shack servers. Luckily there is a simple fix... if you encounter one, please do the following:

  • Click the little "Page" icon in the top left of the post, just to the right of the username of the poster. This will reload the page and locate you at the top of the post.
    Image
  • Now copy the postid, which is the number after the "p", ie #p167120 = 167120
    Image
  • Next load this page but replace POSTID with the number you have above:
    Code:
    http://images.dead-donkey.com/transload/test.php?id=POSTID

    becomes
    Code:
    http://images.dead-donkey.com/transload/test.php?id=167120
  • You should now see some text similar to the following:
    Image
  • If you return to the thread images should now be visible

Posting a thread with image shack images

If you are posting a thread that you've created at another site but have image shack images (please reconsider doing this, as you can see from this thread, they are anything but stable), you can use this simple process to relocate the images.

  • Navigate to http://images.dead-donkey.com/transload/transload.php
  • Paste the post / text into the box and hit transload
  • After a minute or so you will see a lot of status text similar to the above. At the top of the page is a link that says "click here". Click the link
  • The post will now be in the text box, select all of this and post as normal. All image shack links should have been removed.

This is a simple transloading process, but this will utilise bandwidth on dead-donkey.com . It is highly, highly recommended that you simple do not use image shack at all! They have strict censorship policies.

Thanks for helping the site out :drunk:

That "yeuxverts" site is one of those - that I came across during my search for images on this site - that has many images (re-)moved. They don't seem to be there anymore.
