"TinyPic is shutting down (that's what's wrong with yall's avatars)"


          

Someone asked this in another post, so I figured I'd make this post for anyone else wondering (all I did was open the image in a new tab).

http://tinypic.com/

TinyPic is shutting down
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 will be permanently shutting down on September 16, 2019. Because we want to give you as much notice and information as possible during our transition, please carefully review the following information.

What Should You Do Now?
If you have a TinyPic user account, login and download all of the images you wish to preserve. Sorry, bulk download is not an option on TinyPic so you will need to download each image separately.

IMPORTANT DATES:
August 20, 2019 - no new images may be uploaded on TinyPic.

September 9, 2019 - hosted images will no longer be viewable on 3rd party websites. Because we are an anonymous hosting site and therefore cannot provide notice by e-mail to our users, we have opted to replace all hosted images with a temporary message directing them to this notice.

September 16, 2019 - last day for TinyPic account holders to access their accounts and download their images.

We would like to personally thank you for choosing TinyPic as your hosting service. Many of you have been utilizing our services since we launched back in April 2004. As you look for a new hosting service, please consider selecting one of the premium plans offered by our sister site, Photobucket.

first it was free, then they started charging $4 a month for the cheapest plan.

I figured most web image storing sites (that wanted to stay in business) would be charging so I just started paying for it when they started charging.

speaking of getting with the times, maybe we should make an unofficial discord. That solves the issue of some of ya'll wanting an app for the boards.
