Great here! I never noticed many probs before though, either.

I've noticed some hotlinks to outside-hosted graphics have been working sporadically in the past few days. Does this new host frown upon hotlinking?

Doubtful. But that would be great. I very much dislike members linking their sigs/avatars from other sites. It slows PH.com down.

Any graphic can be uploaded via attachment.

Well.. then make it more user friendly to upload pictures.. example.. I just uploaded a picture to my gallery.. I now have to wait for approval.. other sites I can upload it without a delay. This feature is about as close to site like Photobucket... however they handle the admin post upload by deleting unsuitable content. But it doesn't restrict those that stay within the guidelines.

Other options require you to add the image to a thread.. which then you can link from.. but that seems cumbersome.

Of course I had a different setup.. but I don't think that is a global option for all users to utilize.

Not bitchin'.. just stating why some choose alternative sites to upload. It is simply faster and easier.

Actually Wade.. it is folks that host graphics at say a photobucket/imageshack and link them back to here. Then this site sort of becomes a slave to their bandwidth availability..

It's easier to navigate to another site, upload it, then get the link rather than creating a thread, add attachment and use the link from that? I think that's far easier.

The coppermine deal, just a test thing that I forgot to disable long time ago and when I remembered it seen lots of people using it so just left it.

There's no auto approve option for it, sadly.

Some of us use that single say photobucket account for hosting past PH.com.

But if you desire.. I will create a thread, upload my graphics and link them from there. ;)

See.. I used the coppermine feature. lol.

Ha. It's not a BIG deal, it's just a preference of mine, that's all. If it was inherently and issue, I'd have posted a user friendly method for uploading graphics.

I wasn't referring to signatures and avatars specifically. I don't see any reason to hotlink those, since all you have to do is upload it using the appropriate menu. I was referring to graphics in threads that are hotlinked using the [img] tag. Some of them haven't been showing up periodically.

EDIT: Wow, I just now realized for the first time that MY signature graphic is hosted at Photobucket. It never occurred to me to check before. Now I feel dumb.

Avatar... no problem.. a convinent way to post and host.

Signature.. well a bit more cumbersome.. however with a dedicated thread, as such, to dump them in..

It isn't terrible. Well that is now that the host is snappy again.. that is. ;)

If a hotlinked graphic doesn't show up, I don't think that's an issue with PH.com rather more possibly the item has a refusal for allowance of being hotlinked.

Since the change to the new host the subdomain http://forum.packershome.com no longer maps to the forum.

I've been cleaning the database and changing a few things all day ... apparently disabling the user agents yields that response.

1and1.com - 200MB database limit and we're near 500MB
GoDaddy.com - 200MB database limit and has more than 4,000 websites on a server
Arvixe.com - Inconsistent and unreliable customer service, if they even answer.

Must check these two out.

GoDaddy is not an option for a forum, as you well know.

I liked DreamHost when I was with them.

I'd recommend my host, Site5, but you are dependent upon Windows with the forum software you chose.
