I tried a bunch of “pastebin for images” web sites and I liked tinyimg.io the best.

It stopped working and I thought it was a firewall problem or one of my internet spam blockers. Today I found this on pastebin:

https://pastebin.com/ChzPxHwd

Unfortunately, I had to shut down tinyimg.io at the request of my hosting provider due to people repeatedly uploading illegal content.
I don't have the time or resources to engage in a cat-and-mouse game of setting up countermeasures or constantly deleting said content. I created tinyimg.io for fun; I didn't put any ads on the site and paid for all the hosting costs out of pocket. Keeping this site going was just a matter of paying the monthly bills as it was very low-maintenance, which has no longer been the case recently.
Thus, it's unlikely that the site will ever come back up.
I know a surprising number of people have grown to use tinyimg.io, so I'm sorry about any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any questions or concerns, please DM me on Reddit @ /u/waylaidwanderer.

Can anyone recommend an alternative that works well with WP? (For memes or threads like “Images In Numbers”)?

Thanks in advance.

I found a few alternatives (did I miss any?)

I did a google search on wrongplanet.net (with "site:wrongplanet.net") and got a count for each of these (not scientific - some pages seem to not ever show up on google when I search wrongplanet even if I know they exist on wrongplanet).

It looks like PhotoBucket is the most popular on WrongPlanet (followed by imgur and imageshack).

Photobucket (1650)
imgur (828)
ImageShack (539)
postimg.cc (9)
ibb.co (3)
imgbb.com (1)

This question has been asked before on WrongPlanet:

Postimage is pretty good, and you don't need to have an account or register.

The main issue I've had with it is that a few years ago they seem to have had a major revamp, and all the images I posted before that no longer show up on WP. Occasionally the images posted via the present version of the site become unavailable, but they usually return.

I managed to use postg.cc to play a round of “Images In Numbers”.
So that is cool.

Do you mean this one?

https://postimages.org/

I've used it from time to time, and it's not yet given me any trouble.

There's also this, which I've also used without problems:

https://imgbox.com/

It limits you to a maximum of 10mb per image though.

Neither of those websites insisted on my creating an account, though I've not used them for a while.

Hmm that should read:

Code:

I guess I fat-fingered it.

Photobucket hasn't been useful for at least a decade, ImageShack probably over two decades. Photobucket isn't even free anymore. I keep getting emails from them about if I want to save my pictures, but I can't even SIGN IN to save my pictures without buying an account first.

Imgur is more of a social media thing, and is pretty invasive with all of the Javascript that it runs.

I recently started using ImgBB, and I like it so far.
I think I've used PostImg before too, I'm not sure.

Half the time, I just paste links from stuff I've uploaded to Discord... :oops:
