Is there a time limit on 3rd party hosting?
« on: July 07, 2017, 08:06:51 AM »
Other than an eventual option to remove an uploaded file image to 3rd party hosting service...

Would like to know if there's a time frame limit to the hosting of these "clippings"?

Some services may post what they hope to guarantee, but I think in general when you are using the 3rd party image hosting sites, it's anyone's guess and there is no guarantee.
If you need your images up forever you'll have to keep a copy of them and be prepared to change services..

Did you mean "Gotcha"?

(Forgive me. I was talking about spelling and reading this with my nearly 7 y/o son - he will be in 1 day's time - and he wanted to know what "Goccha" meant.)

That's funny!  ;D

Never thought there was a "proper" word for that.
Somethiing like "wanna" i suppose, slowly making its way into our dictionaries.

Yes. It is for that reason I could never really see the sense in offering/using such third-party services, since, by definition they would seem to be "unreliable", or only reliable in the sense that they can be relied on to be impermanent.
Yahoo!'s 1TB of Flickr free images storage comes to mind as a likely exception in that regard.

Defunct Yahoo!?  :-\

My "hidden" idea here would be to propose a kind of "merger/alliance" with Cintanotes that lacks screenshot capture capabilities.
If Screenshots Capture could "merge" so to speak with CN and have a decent, reliable image hosting service like Snag.gy or others with unlimited services like Flickr. Then maybe both could rise to a better level of appreciation hitherto known.

"Wanna"?
That's a word:
Quote
wanna
· contr. informal want to; want a.
Concise Oxford Dictionary (10th Ed.)
It's an acceptable contraction of a word for Scrabble players to use (contractions are OK, but abbreviations are not allowed).

Interesting - I just noticed - my AutoHotkey script called "AutoCorrect" automatically changes "wanna" to "want to" as I type. Quite handy.
