Thanks Mary! Appreciate your insight on the matter as always. Hope your sleep gets better, but I've been sleeping insanely badly too. I think everyone's got stuff going on nowadays

The only reason I have DeviantArt is it's good for banners, people who make sig pics, and people that do their own art b/c you have to publish it to get a url which is annoying for Average Joes. But that's the only one on the list that will do what you're looking for. You'll have to check out ArtStation yourself.
Ok, that's fine too. I'll further take a look at ArtStation whether it's a suitable place or not to host generic splashes done in Photoshop and Illustrator.

Thanks for the thoughts Take/Decade. I've been slowly getting better (VERY slowly) and prolly will be going on a CPAP soon but it's just been heck thanks to some stupid things and all. Won't say what but all I can say is make sure you stand up for yourself to doctors every time. You'll thank me for the advice later. Been doing my best to take care of myself and get some sleep!

Also Decade: Thank you for that. I don't do my own art (heck, I don't really know how to photoshop anything) so I didn't look into that too hard. As I said, this is made to get urls to post to boards/embed on boards, not get comments. (Heck, my sig pic was made by a guy on RPGamer who has vanished off the web now; I dun know where i'd get another.)

So okay, if you didn't know, RPGamer is finally closing their forums for good. (The forums will close permanently May 2. not the main site though)

This means the newbie guide is going down forever in a few weeks. (If the forum it was written for is gone, why keep it up?) However, I thought I'd make this a opportunity to make things easier on myself. I'm saving the original pic hoster list to be moved to my personal page; this will transform the list as well, since I'll be changing it to a link and/or seeing if I can embed part of a webpage into a forum so I only have to update that once, not THREE times. Which gets annoying. :)

I think people would understand if you awnt to just post a link to your site and read it there. There's no need to directly host it on the forums if this is the info they're seeking

Okay. Preview time since I'd like to double check and make sure people find this okay. Page here.

I just had to use the FF sprites to honor RPGamer, and well..the KH chibis are b/c the other site I have this on is a KH news site. But is the background okay? Look fine? I can change whatever, just need to know. Figure I can't please everyone but as long as it's easily readable and it looks okay to folks, I'll let this go true live and link it up in the FAQ section on my site. As well as both here and the other site, and save me a headache updating.

Naturally, if anyone has some Kamen Rider chibis to add to the KH ones, I won't say no lol. :)

Thanks Take. Changed to a very obvious link now (I blew up the link text to add emphasis).

I'll still say, if anyone thinks I need to change colors/background, let me know. And as always, if you find any more good places to host pics, let me know, I'll add a link on there to email me direct in case you're over there when you find one. ^^

Just a heads up, my site's down due to my hoster's having problems. They're working on it, it should be back by the end of the week (hopefully) but I don't have a ETA. That means the list is down.

[Edit] Put up a temp link to a Google doc, that is coming down when my site is back up and running. I can't give you a ETA though. I REALLY don't want to update it twice.

Seems there was a nasty little bug in X10hosting's cloud services, which caused a critical failure in their storage system. That mess brought the whole ball of wax down, to everyone who uses that hoster's extreme annoyance. They are pretty reliable but such things happen; which is why I do keep a backup on my hdd and on a portable hdd in case I ever have to cut and run. But they had a backup themselves so they were able to bring it up without too much trouble, it's just there's a lot of sites there so it took time to restore everything.

My experience with free hosters is that you have to keep a backup in case, been though at least 2 hosters in my day. Well, at least it's fixed.
