    ImageShack will start implementing policy changes that will restrict free members to deliver images to any sites, blogs or forums.

    This may affect many of the marketplace threads (or threads in generaly) here on BHW that used ImageShack for hosting their images. So, either upgrade to their premium membership, or host images somewhere else. This is just a heads up for everyone. Read more about their policy changes here.

    Yes, we're aware of this. If this breaks someone's marketplace thread, they can upload the same image to imgur and send me the direct link and I'll replace it in the thread for free.

    It must be the same image that's live on imageshack (can compare these from the direct link) and any other form links or title changes will need to be paid for and to go through the normal edit request process.

    We're currently reviewing the situation with hosted images - hopefully will have an update shortly. Essentially, we need to make sure that any changes are controlled so that sellers can't swap out a remote image link and drastically change the offered service from the one that's been reviewed.

    But in the meantime, if you've got a broken sales thread, PM me with the information above and I'll get it fixed.
