    If you can't be bothered signing up - there's a public upload section ;)

    Oh, while I'm at it, I have a new site in beta testing : kind of a Communities hub, where I hope to unite the friendlier players on the internet - great for map testing sessions etc ;) Sign up and feedback - its a WIP.

    Can't believe I almost missed this. It's a good thing you do m8 :) I think it's a shame that more people don't take advantage of the generous services offered by Colt, but their loss really. Soon as I actually have a map worth posting about, I'll be sure to bug the Playground for some feedback :p

    ALWAYS!!
    but yeah...image shack sucks...alot...
    ive got my own server that im hosting images on...but otherwise photobucket is significantly better then imageshack, and a private host is likely to be even better

    Imageshack is rather yucky, but I've had a photobucket for over four years... it's never let me down yet.

    Pretty much the same for me (I think I've had the same Photobucket account for six years), but lately it's startet to suck. Not the services themselves, but the site is constantly pushing fifty ads in your face every page and adding tons of useless features (such as some horrible avatars), not to mention I have to reload the page 5+ times before the upload image button actually appears in the first place.

    It's relieable but annoying, so any kind of host like this is very welcome IMO.
