Yes, and that 900$ happened very fast, in less than a day, plus the money they had before setting up that
donation fund, two or three days from now and all will be fine.
Maybe but I will never harden their job with using their services. I am looking for alternatives.
Their screen capture tool was the best but I have to find new one with good support.

Sharex that support a zillion host. I use imgur and having reddit acceptance behind it helps limit money issues.

Has a lot of options but still easy to use. Each to his own though.
Now using this Lightshot — screenshot tool for Mac & Win
I am very pleased with the tool and feature but I do not like the host..
I am looking for a tool like this example

I tested it again.. I found vgy.me is very usefull for me. They support SSL security for direct image links :) (imgur is blocked on my region)
and I can manage the uploaded images from the ShareX interface. I can open the deletion address and I can delete useless ones.
Great app..why I did not try this before :) I cannot figure it out when I tried it last time.

Images are back!

You need some time to figure it out because it has a lot of option but it's set and forget. I honestly don't remember how to do every time i format but eventually i figure this out.

I still don't understand they keep hosting images from people that don't even care to create an account... if it was my company, i would delete all those leechers or keep them but embed Ads in their pictures.

I think that's what they did.
I donated, and left a little note to the effect that it would be smart moving forward to eliminate unregistered users option,
or severely limit them.
If they reply I will share it here.
You can bet it's not the unregistered that are lining up with their wallets open to help PostImage.

I'm not fan of Postimage.org but sometimes we need to fix certain issues from different parties for better outcome.

We cannot insist that policy/rules must be follow for continuous operation.

Your connections finally allowed us to establish contact with parties that made a long-term solution affordable. Your emails kept us going on extra-long workdays, because we knew that you were counting on us.
