Hosting Guidelines: ImageShack = bad, SDB_Host, MediaFire = good
Please use the SDB Image Host
instead of ImageShack - it's faster and more reliable.
If for some reason you don't want to use my (excellent, free, fast) hosting, at the very least use a better image host like TinyPic
or even Photobucket
(just make sure it doesn't resize your images.)
ImageShack-hosted files are always randomly down and it's incredibly annoying. Let that awful hosting site fade into history like it deserves.
Other File Hosting
Also, for archive files (ZIP or RAR) and music (WAV, MP3, etc.) - use MediaFire
- it's fast, with no countdown timers, download limits, or CAPTCHA, and it has great uptime.
It's not against the rules to use imageshack but keep in mind, I can't add your submissions to the site if I can't download them.
