    I saw this message today when uploading an image to TinyPic
    Just wondering how this might eventually affect any linked images used in this forum and whether it might be worth people checking to ensure their image links survive somehow.

    Does anyone have any suggestions about a forum-wide recommendation about what to use instead?

    TinyPic is shutting down in 2019
    TinyPic is shutting down its image hosting service because we can no longer support a free service that derives 100% of its revenue from ever declining on-site ad revenues.
    While you may continue to host images from our site until further notice, we encourage you to consider selecting one of the premium plans offered by our sister site, Photobucket.
    Thanks for using TinyPic for your hosting needs over the years. We apologize that we can no longer continue providing this service, but Photobucket is a great option going forward.​

    I've used both catbox and imgbb for a few years now. catbox definitely will be staying for a while since they have consistent patreon donors. I've seen many services come and go during my years moderating on another forum, and those two seem to have survived the longest (aside from the usual sites like imgur).

    None of the images I've seen hosted on these sites have been removed, with the exception of imgur (most likely copyright takedowns, etc)
