This is a mod post!

So as I have been going back and properly tagging past entries I have noticed one thing. A bunch of posts full of pictures that look like this.

Now, omonatheydidnt get's roughly anywhere from 4,000-6,000 visitors a day. A lot of lurkers ammirite? Perhaps a combination of traffic and people hot-linking from our posts is to blame for this. There was one website that was prolifically hot-linking from us. We kindly asked them to stop and it seems they have.

Because everyone works hard to make posts at omona and build our community into a excellent source & reference for kpop news, we don't want to see posts become useless because of exceeded bandwidth.

Now what I need from you guys is suggestions on websites that are more reliable and can take a bigger hit than photobucket or tinypic (which reuses their links after a certain period of time). The most reliable hosting spot I can think of at the moment is your livejournal gallery. Because pictures don't go away until you delete them yourself.


It's been discovered that if you join & make an account on tinypic rather than just uploading freely that your pictures wont be deleted/replaced after a period of time. So if you want your posts to stay the same please create a personal tinypic account. Happy posting~

•Your personal Facebook gallery

I use imageshack.us, but I just use it for picspams.

I use imageshack.us and it seems to be okay for me. I have pictures I uploaded there like 2 years ago and they are still fine.
deazaskia 10th-Jun-2009 01:39 am (UTC)
is it not gonna re-use the url? and did u make an account there? my photobucket for omntd just died and i'm so sad. :(
iheartomntd 10th-Jun-2009 01:37 am (UTC)
definitely imageshack.us um... and I know another one.. just can't think of the name right now.

Was it some .cz site? The waiting room Big Bang gif I have got like 6k hits one month or something... o_o

I use tinypic.com since it's the simplest.
Idk about how long they keep the image up though.
deazaskia 10th-Jun-2009 02:01 am (UTC)
i think tinypic will re-use their url in like 6 months. :/

I use Livejournal, but I guess that's only an option for paid accounts?

I hear imageshack.us will take more hits vs. photobucket.

Because of hotlinkers, there was a batch of pictures I had to re-upload twice within the same day. This is ridiculous.

I'm going to start using LJ if this continues.

AISH! Gurl when that happens you should upload some nasty ass porn and change the url to it so when they hotlink they get the new image. It'll teach them a lesson :O

um,this is random, but sometimes I actually use my facebook XD me and few of my friends have a couple Kpop groups we made and when I spam, I just into in the picture we post and get the direct link from the properties of the picture >>;

And I'm pretty sure there's no limit on facebook pictures that you upload, so that's an idea as well :\

omg, i remember when my bandwidth acceded on photobucket.


i just started using tiny pic so idek about them. ill see about image shack tho.
valyrian 10th-Jun-2009 02:22 am (UTC)
I really don't understand hotlinking so I just stick to uploading them myself lol

I use tinypic for all my stuff.
idk about them using stuff after periods of time but we shall see
shanny_w 10th-Jun-2009 06:16 am (UTC)
Basically after a period of about 6 months or more they reuse the same url for other pics. So we will get some random ass pictures showing up on omona in old posts.
missklutz16 10th-Jun-2009 02:25 am (UTC)
i used to use photo.cx all the time. idk if they delete files or what though, i only ever used it for quick uploading.

i wasn't aware that tinypic delete files after a while. i've read ontd posts from like 3 years ago that still have intact tinypic pics.
shanny_w 10th-Jun-2009 06:17 am (UTC)
So maybe it's a rumor?
xcherryblossomx 10th-Jun-2009 02:27 am (UTC)
I always use tinypic.

Im wondering which website was hotlinking from our ~dear omona~
shanny_w 10th-Jun-2009 06:17 am (UTC)
Great list. Thanks :)
thexrhythm 10th-Jun-2009 02:46 am (UTC)
back then...when i would read the ljsecret comm i would see a whole bunch of "frog" images because it exceeded bandwith. so maybe imageshack wouldnt' be a good idea. the only ones that i've used are tinypic and this: http://photos.cx/ which that comm use also.
