In case of our sig I am using an url-shortener.
I made my account at imgur because of shorter urls some years ago. Afterwards I found out about url shortener and now I use whatever host is more comfortable for me without minding the length of the urls given. You need even less space than for the short imgur urls and it gives you space for more pics than you can place in our sig :wink:

Yes, I already have more stuff on it than it what fits the wide of my browser... (laugh) I was going to add a "moving" tag, but there was not enough characters left for it... (roll)

The only thing that would make sense in my eyes is to support direct image uploading in the forums. But that would cause even more traffic and generate costs for AGA and so on.

I can do that.  Bandwidth isn't really an issue.

It would make a lot more sense for images to be hosted here, where basically they'd stay until AGS is no longer a thing...


Please do (nod)

That'd be great, I always feel sad when I look at old forum threads and all the pictures are gone because whatever site they were hosted on is gone.

Sure, that would be nice, but could you please fix the Games DB search first? It's been broken for ages now, and it's the kind of thing I think really affects both download numbers for individual AGS games, and the popularity of AGS as a whole.

(I'm specifically talking about the "Search Games by Title or Author:" search bar, which always goes to http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/namesearch/ and gives me a 403 error when I search. I'm able to run (single-word) searches correctly by manually adding the search term to the URL, but no random visitor is going to realize that.)

Now I finally have image codes where pngs actually end with png instead of jpg. Maybe zoomable images will actually look right now.
Thank you very much Gurok.

Is it web interface only, or is there some way to access some storage directly?
