Yeah switch to imgur. It's the best image hosting service out there. Photobucket is stupid. It's buggy and I hate it when that image pops up every time. >_>

I used to use Photobucket back when I made my own sigpics, which never looked great lol.

Since becoming Supporter, I ditched that and now I solely use Tumblr as my ideal image source for avatars, signatures and profiles.

I think imgur is one of the best image hosting imo. Although I must admit I use Tumblr as my source of my sigs lately.

Imgur is much better than Photobucket cause you don't even need an account to upload images. Still I have an account for storage purpose.

imgur without a doubt.. I switched to it in 2011 from ImageShack, because ImageShack was beginning to shrink and resize images on their server which got me to steer away from them, but I was also using a service known as Imagehost, but that closed down in late 2010. There's also minus, but to keep images up, you have to have an account.

Speaking of imgur, how do y'all pronounce it? I've pronounced it at "image ur"..

As for my signatures, I use dropbox for those images, just in case I ever wanted to return to a signature/theme and didn't want to go digging through for a URL.

Imgur <3
Matthew (r.i.p) introduced Imgur to me back in like....2010???? I haven't looked back since, lol. It's perfect!! It's nowhere as slow as Tinypic, it's prettier, it's more efficient, etc. It's just a beautiful and priceless site that I will go to war for!!!

And for the record, I pronounce it as 'imm mur guh'.

I always pronounced it Imh gurr even though it's officially pronounced image-er , though to me image-er just sounds weird.

    Imgur always annoyed me in that I couldn't pronounce it, the same way nobody can agree on how to pronounce Gif.

    On an unrelated note, PC is advertising adult diapers. For some reason they think I wet myself often.

      Well, it's not as bad as some of the other ads that I get on this site. One of which in particular is about an online game that's rated for people ages 18+.

      So much for PC being family & child friendly...

      I never see any ads.

      AdBlock Plus makes the internet so much more bearable.

      Same for me. And sometimes when I'm not using Adblock, I see that PC advertises a certain softener for the clothes. I see that it advertises anything that is well-known in my country.

      Right now I just got an advertisement for Best Buy on PC, but I disabled AdBlock Plus for PC since they don't have malicious ads and they're a site that I support fully.

      I seem to get advertisements for technology-related stuff here on PC. I can recall having advertisements for Symantec products and AT&T phone plans.

      I've had ads as close as locally-advertised businesses. It's kinda scary from time to time.

      also

        Ads? I don't see them at all, but that's probably because I have adblocker, it just makes the internet less... flashy?

        I only see ads when I'm on my mobile devices, but I usually ignore them because they make no sense anyways "TRY OUR FREE TRIAL OMG" (what are they selling?!?!)

          I will forever pronounce it "im-jer."

          Currently still use photobucket, but that's because I'm too lazy to switch everything I have on my photobucket account to an imgur account. But yes, photobucket has a monthly bandwidth limit (unless you want to give them money) and TinyPic is also bad because it deletes image urls after a while, and going back to reading something with TinyPic pictures gets hilarious and confusing.

          As for ads, I don't see any here, but I use Adblock and have no good reason why I use it here other than I keep forgetting to disable it on PC. See them here when I'm on my tablet, but I don't pay any attention to what they're advertising. Adblock is a great tool when browsing the Internet, especially when ads either use autoplay noises (hearing "YOU WON A FREE IPAD!" screamed in your ear) or a lot of flashing that could make people have seizures.

          I don't get companies that think it's worth it to have a feature that causes so much trouble to the customers for a not-worth-it gain in capacity.

          I mean, I would be more than willing to pay for the difference if it means I don't have to go through the trouble.

          Ads are plain annoying, I dont really like seeing them on sites and have pop ups blocked. I don't really want to see people's scams thank you very much :l

          I started using adblocker here when PC had a ad up asking people to download a adware infested piece of crapwaresoftware.

          This was about 5 years ago though.

          Okay, so topic has been dead for a while, time for a new one:

          Dream game: Pokemon with the free roaming, freedom of choice, and scope of Elder Scrolls and Fallout 1&2, with the writing quality of Planescape: Torment

          What do you mean by freedom of choice? Branching storylines and multiple endings? Or event sequences that affect each other (I guess effectively multiple endings)?

          I don't know if I'd be happy with better writing quality. Simple and clean is how I like it already, I dunno if it would be the same if pokemon was too epik.

          Both. And allowing you to do what you want to solve problems, join different factions (or villainous teams).

          And it doesn't even have to be a main game. I'd settle for it being a spin-off.

          I'd imagine freeroaming to get in the way of the levelling system? Like I suppose Borderlands is freeroaming, but the levels still constrain you to follow the storyline. Maybe it would be like being able to choose between the DP and Platinum storylines for Hearthome, Veilstone, and Pastoria (I had to search these up, 4th gen left the most shallow of impressions on me).
