imageshack images
« on: February 27, 2011, 10:35:25 am »
i can't see most of the images hosted at imageshack.us, instead i see an image saying domain is not registered:



does anybody know what's going on?

This is because the domain jpct.net is not registered at imageshack, for egon, please goto http://stream.imageshack.us/content.php?page=register_domain and register the domain there,
Then it should work.

Actually, i don't like the idea of doing this. This is some twisted logic from ImageShack and the only purpose it's going to serve is to collect data and email adresses, either from domain owners or from visitors who register to see the images. My solution to this would be to go away from ImageShack...

i understand your point but -possibly- hundreds of images in this forum will be invisible this way.

possibly it wont work but you can also try giving a fake email address from a site like www.mailinator.com

I've no real problem with the mail address itself. Everybody can grab it from this site too. I just don't like ImageShack's idea of offering a free service to people and then forcing third parties, i.e. the webmasters of sites whose users' use ImageShack, to register at ImageShack. Anyway, i did now. No idea how long it will take to be processed.
