TINYPIC CLOSES

The popular TinyPic has ceased operations. A lot of forum posts had images stored on the site.

We would like to personally thank you for choosing TinyPic as your hosting service. Many of you have been utilizing our services since we launched back in April 2004.

In July 2010, TinyPic blocked access to the site to users from Argentina, cutting off thousands of users to access, view, or delete their stored images. As of August 2010, no statement has been released from TinyPic nor any of the numerous users’ questions replied; instead, a sign appears upon accessing the website inviting users to join Photobucket, but without giving any solutions for the users’ stored images and videos.

On September 23, 2010, TinyPic blocked uploads from “international locations” (i.e. locations outside of the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, and others) and that all links are turned off.

The internet archive was also unable to copy the servers due to the slow performance of the hosts.
