Imageshack upload no longer working
« on: February 07, 2019, 02:20 PM »
When uploading to Imageshack I received this error:
Error, web service rejected upload: rejected by imageshack; see log for error
This is the link connected to the error:
https://imageshack.com/activate/05qvoLi3sMWSlmpqbWdtmZtlmJFsbZWeaslnxpaZk5KYZ2idaMhvlceaaHSkdIGFuJVqmQ

The log wasn't helpful but from the "activate" in the URL it seemed that Imageshack required authentication. So I signed up and entered my credentials in Screenshot Captor. It now works.

The only problem is that I am now on a 30 day free trial then I have to pay. Imageshack no longer appears to be free.

Am I missing something? If not, what do you think would be the best alternative?

Thanks,
Steve

I can confirm trying it now and getting the same error.  Not sure when that started happening but it was working as recently as 2 days ago.
Let me try to fix it.

Seems to be working again now, so it must have been some transient imageshack problem that they fixed  :up:

I'm back with my worst fears realized. Imageshack wants money!  :P

This is the error:
Transfer done. Reply from post: - <error id="upload_failed">Uploading into a free account is not allowed</error>

Any alternate service suggestions?

Edit:
I looked at the ShareX choices. vgy.me is free and does not require an account. I'd appreciate any feedback before implementing.

BTW, ShareX has a new URL - https://getsharex.com.

From what I've seen so far, imgur seems to work alright most of the time and doesn't ask for money.
