It looks like we have a pretty big problem.
The image hosting service http://www.hostingpics.net/ used on the Librarities forum says that they've shut down at the beginning of the new year.
No more new pictures can be hosted.
All images that are currently hosted will be up for only a few more months, and then they'll all be deleted.

Similar to the Photobucket issue, all of the pics will be disappearing soon, and a replacement hosting service will need to be found.
Yes, I've just realized that right now, this is another huge disaster. Point to find another free hosting pics service might be useless as they can shut down anytime. It took me so much time to fix some posts after the Photobucket fiasco and now this.
It is with regret that we announce you at the beginning of this year the final closure of the site.

We have done our best to maintain the activity but we have to make this decision after more than 9 years to offer you this service completely free from the first day.

Thank you to everyone who participated and made us live during all these years

It is no longer possible to send images, however we leave them online for several months to allow those who wish to retrieve them.
Thank you again for the trust you have given us.

So can we all retrieve images from our threads and reupload them when a new option becomes available?

I probably have most of the images I have used recently as I am storing them a bit better.

Sorry to hear about this!

Hi Mark

Yes, we will have few monthes to retrieve the pics to be uploaded after. On the new post that I just did, I have given a try at Google Photos, the process to add a pic is longer, and looks like it can't be done without a proper manual resizing (it was done automatically on Hostingpics) to prevent distorsion, I need to read further about it and have also a look at Imgur and Flickr.

While I'm not affected, I'm truly sorry to hear this. If, within the next few months, the forum needs a few additional man-hours for menial clean-up tasks, let me know — happy to help!
I collect land cards, just that.
