Add postimage.org Or freeimagehosting.net As Image Hosts

I would like these two (either) websites to be possible image hosts for the forums, postimage.org, and freeimagehosting.net.

Why? Because they are generally “better” than the other image hosts we have now. Let's look at the commonly used image hosters:
tinypic.com - A good image hosting site, but it uses a LOT of ads, and it has that annoying thing every time where you have to type something in to host your image.
imageshack.us - You need an account. Plus, you need to pay to use it -_-
photobucket.com - You need an account.
cubeupload.com - This isn't that bad. I personally use it a lot, and there are non-intrusive ads, but I heard that the servers may crash for a while which means you can't use it then
Now, what are the benefits of the two sites proposed above?

Here's a list for postimage.org:

postimage.org wrote:

•Non-intrusive ads

•Completely free (no account needed)

The Terms of Use wrote:

What cannot be uploaded to Postimage.org servers:

-Copyrighted images if you don't own copyright for it
-Violence, racial intolerance, or advocate against any individual, group, or organization
-Any other images that might be considered illegal in USA or EU countries

•Even though there is an “adult / 18+” filter, I didn't find a way to search for pictures on this site (which minimizes searching up potentially inappropriate pictures). You probably need an account for that, but you don't need one, so who cares?
And the benefits of freeimagehosting.net:

freeimagehosting.net wrote:

•No ads at all

•Completely free (no account required)

Terms of Service wrote:

Regarding your content submissions, you agree that you will NOT submit any content or post any comments that:
-are adult oriented or offensive;
-infringes any trademark, copyright or other proprietary rights of any party;
-are unlawful, harmful, abusive, or defamatory;
-are to be used in unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, or spam; and/or
-are illegal or in violation of any United States laws.
which means that posting inappropriate pictures are not allowed.

•You can't search for pictures (without an account, I think)

As you can see, both image hosting sites have basically the same benefits.

And to those who say “you can still upload inappropriate pictures”, then let's remove posting images altogether because people can upload inappropriate pictures on Tinypic and cubeupload.

So what do you guys think?

Definite support for adding post image (It's my favourite image host)

Actually, cubeupload is cubeupload.com, not .org.

Support.

Why?

Idk about post image.org, as the fact that it HAS an 18+ filter is a no-no for me. However, I do support for the other one, as it sounds pretty neat.

I support, despite that if postimage.org is added, I will probably remain to use cubeupload.

tinypic.com - A good image hosting site, but it uses a LOT of ads, and it has that annoying thing every time where you have to type something in to host your image.
The “annoying” thing that you need to type to post is like the 60 second rule.

support for freeimagehosting.net

support, but you could name another image-host that is deemed safe for Scratch image hosting?

edit: another disadvtange of imageshack.us is you need to pay money

Thanks for your suggestion! We definitely need to do something about finding more acceptable image hosts.

If there are other sites that you are aware of that you think would be a good fit for Scratch, please add them to this conversation.

I use cubeupload a lot and the servers are fine, but yeah, the current ones are things that go against the TOS, and Tinypic is horrid.

Please don't quote the whole post. I would recommend you to use -snip- word every you quote some big posts to avoid taking too much topic space.

I'm now officially quit the suggestion forum because it has too many big problems and there so many unconstructive/quantity posts such “Support” or “No support”, and worse, i got so many posts really quickly, people need to learn how to be constructive and not focusing on post count. It doesn't matter how many posts you have. Constructivity and respectfulility does. Other forums than Suggestion, i'm staying and i'm going to keep posting in other forums.
