What a nightmare....  
So apparently I have a few too many images stored on ImageShack, and by 'a few' I mean 3100. And I have until 1st March to fix things so that the 3100 oldest images getting deleted won't cause too much damage, unless I will upgrade my account or something. I don't even D: D; I guess 2$/month wouldn't be a horribly bad price but I'm just so freaking pissed off at this random move that I really REALLY don't want to pay. Nope. I'll find a better site and put my icons there. I already have a Photobucket account, and for what I know there's only the size limit of 500MB and that's not likely to get filled up very soon since icons are really small in size. Just not in quantity in my case.

But hey, this is a great opportunity to purge my journal from those horrid older icons, lol. There's no way I'm wasting time and effort on them now, I have my hands more than full with saving the better stuff.

Still, they could have warned me a *little* earlier, you know? *headdesk*

See icon for a better description of my initial reaction to this...

That's why I like Photobucket, there is no limit on image storage, even on free accts. I have 3949 images stored there right now and they have 10GB of bandwidth for free accts too.

eta: Photobucket changed there limits awhile ago ;)

Wow, really, so the limit is 10GB now? That's awesome. You'd have to make quite a few icons to fill that space :D

Yeah! I have at least 6yrs worth of icons, wallpapers and random pics and photos on mine. Also, you figure all of the FS icon sets of 25ea that I've been making and all of the graphic & icon challenges I've been in lately, my bandwidth renews on the 21 of every month, and I've only used 985 MB (9%) of it for my month of bandwidth so far :D

I gave in and paid for my Photobucket account. I would highly highly highly recommend doing that. :) Just move everything to Photobucket.

I guess I'll do like you said and move almost everything to Photobucket. I always thought the UI there felt worse than at ImageShack but now I actually like it better - I like how you can make different folders before you upload so everything's neatly organized!

However I won't pay unless I really have to cause otherwise I could just as well stick with ImageShack :P
