    ImageBam/Imgbox issues

    I am having issues with ImageBam and Imgbox pictures loading. When I upload anything, it takes ages for the pictures to process, and if I look at a thread with pictures hosted by these two hosts, they also take a long time loading, sometimes not loading at all!

    I can use ImageHostGrabber to download images without any problems, and other hosts seem to work ok.

    Are any other users currently experiencing excessive load times for these two hosts, or is it just me? I have previously found them to both be decent, allowing quick uploads and keeping images without much loss for a long time.

    I'm hoping that it clears up soon, anyhow...

    Another forum that I mod has a line with this same problem.
    Might be a location thing.

    I just made a couple of posts on Imagebam with over 100 pics and they seemed to upload ok.

    Imagebam are aware of the issue as they posted this on their support forums "There are some network issues somewhere along to users in Germany and the UK. We're working with together with the datacenter to get this resolved."

    Re: ImageBam/Imgbox issues

    Thanks for the input guys!

    I think ImageBam and Imgbox are run by the same people, so that would explain why they both seem to have the same problem!!! Hopefully it will be sorted soon, then I can resume posting all the awesome pics I have stored away...


    EDIT 19/1: Seems to be resolved now!

    Re: ImageBam/Imgbox issues

    No problems right-clicking to save, but Image Host Grabber isn't working, and it was taking a while to load the images on the page.

    Probably a similar issue to earlier. Should be sorted soon, I hope!!

    Re: ImageBam/Imgbox issues

    The image hosts accept advertising sometimes without checking what effect they have on their users. Often they have stealth malware built in, which is probably what your virus/spyware finds.
    Until they get rid of that advertising for something less obtrusive, we're stuck with it. Using Bulk Image Downloader I bypass much of the advertising, though I get caught out when I select single images.

    Avast has acknowledged the problem. It's on their end and they are working on fixing it. It's mostly okay now but some people are still having the warning pop up here and there.

    Re: ImageBam/Imgbox issues

    I just had a link from Imagebam redirect to one of those FBI Moneypak sites.

    I've had it happen to me before a year ago. When it happened it came up full screen where I could not close it or go anywhere on my computer. This one was just a webpage and I was able to quickly close it. Nothing has happened since then. No popups or homepage changes or anything. I'm currently doing a virus scan. After that I'm going to run Malwarebytes.

    So everyone watch out for Imagebam.

    It was from one of this pics in this thread. I believe it was the 2nd or 3rd image.

    I don't know if it's something that would happen again from the same image or if it could happen from just any random image from Imagebam.

    I just had the same thing happen to me - an FBI Moneypak page popped up. It popped up again when I closed it, then the second time it quit popping.
