    I noticed this morning (UK time) that I couldn't access my Imageshack account and that my email address wasn't found in their system. It seems they're having huge problems and at present their services are out of action which is gonna screw with a lot of BST's on BHW who use their service to host images.

    We've been affected by this as all of our BST's use ImageShack for hosting the images, including the Buy Buttons.

    This is what they have posted on their Twitter account https://twitter.com/ImageShack/status/648856178273837056

    24 to 78 hours !!!!

    Yes, I noticed that yesterday but it seemed to be working again later in the evening.

    Normally, thread edits are $30 but if you've got a completely unreadable sales thread, I can swap over the image links this once. If you upload your images to imgur and then PM me with the thread link, the imageshack link and the new imgur link, I can replace them.

    For other people reading this, I'll do what I can today but if I get completely overloaded with requests, I may not be able to get through them all. So if your sales post isn't completely images and you have text present, please be patient for imageshack to come back up as I'll need to priorities the sales threads without content.

    That's the reason BHW is right on the top and above all from start.
    Admins/Mods Like you with super friendly attitude and always ready to help nature makes us more stronger.
    Even I don't have any sales thread, though I'm to happy see this step.

    For the people who think BHW is getting $ or only interested to make $ then you must see this Reply :)

    Now that is VERY much appreciated, thank you. I will need to do this as my BST's are reliant on images. Thanks, Shez

    Yeah I totally agree. BHW are picking up the slack created by ImageShack and it's obviously going to cost the Mods of BHW some time and effort to make good the mess that ImageShack created. Thank you BHW and Mr Apricot for this, it is very much appreciated.
