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.

It is possible for us to have different experiences. Maybe Imgur is running a test to see if it drives revenue. You may shortly find yourself in the same position, so it is best to explore the alternatives now.

Edit:
It turns out that my problem was that I supplied credentials for my account. If you note my first post with the issue, mouser verified the problem. In a later post he noted that the problem disappeared. The key is not to log in.

To clarify what ConstanceJill was saying, imgur is a different service than imageshack.  You were asking for alternatives, and she was suggesting imgur.com as an alternative to imageshack.com.

To clarify the problem I think steve was having: The built-in Imageshack uploader in SC works fine.
When you upload it uploads to a generic shared Screenshot Captor ImageShack (paid) account, so you do not have to have an imageshack account of your own or configure it in any way.

In addition, with the SC uploader you also have the OPTION of specifying your OWN imageshack login credentials instead of using the generic SC account.  This could be advantageous because you have greater control over the images (you could delete them after upload, or control visibility, etc.).  This requires you to have your own imageshack account.  And furthermore, it may be that imageshack will block you from uploading (after a certain amount?) if you do not pay for one of their monthly plans.

Thank you for the kind words -- let me know if it doesn't start working for you in the next couple of days.
