Down With Tinypic!

Suggestion: What if the Scratch team files a complaint to Tinypic? Instead of blacklisting Tinypic, we might potentially fix the problem from its source (and save many of the current images on Scratch from destruction )

They probably get money for the ads on their site.

I would support this.

Doesn't guarantee a response though.

Why not ask them to moderate the ads on their site?

Probably? That's what advertisements are for. You wouldn't invite people to put their content on your website.
Anyway, like TheHockeyist said, Tinyipc should moderate their advertisers, like any other good website would.

That is why I don't support. It would also mean you can't quote tinypic images.

technically you can, but not directly

As a long time Scratcher, I have found new meaning to the name “Scratch”: for me, it means to “scratch that itch”, to come back again and again to realize new ideas in this toy language, even when I'm capable of creating my projects in real programming languages years later. It's a friend that helped me to pursue programming and get me to enjoy its fruit. I'm certain many others who have walked this path as well have grown fond of its importance in their life.

They probably use a third-party adverting agency for their adverts, so it may be out of their hands.

Well, well well! Malware detected!
I went to tinypic to see where their ads come from, and look what happened.

See the Avast! pop-up, that was blocking a malware infested advert, that's why the advert was shown as ‘The connection was reset’. This proves tinypic is showing malware infested adverts which possibly run drive by downloads! I would not suggest going to tinypic unless you have solid security set up!
The mal-advert is hosted at
hxxp://xxx.facewealth.xyz/
, please do go there unless you are using correct security suits.

Yes, this site should not have anything to do with Scratch. Because it does not require an account, Scratchers are funneled into uploading to tinypic; who knows how many Scratchers are now infected by tinpic adverts?!

Probably the majority that upload images. I'm not infected - I'm one of the careful ones. But down with tinypic!

Lol. Your signature is hosted with tinypic doe. I dunno if they can place tracking cookies on us by loading images, but I'm gonna change my signature to cubeupload. I <3 cubeupload.

“Hey you, stop running ads that you need to make enough money to survive on your site. We blocked all image hosts except yours for some reason, and now our users don't want to see ads when uploading pictures.”

This idea doesn't seem completely ridiculous at all… Besides, it's still not clear whether removing tinypic from the whitelist will break all other images. What will most likely happen is that new tinypic pictures won't be postable, but old ones will remain unless quoted or edited.
