Hello,

Will it stay forever? That is impossible to answer, as no one has the power to see into the future. I can tell you there are no plans for it to close anytime soon and that servimg makes a decent amount of money off of forumotion because we pay to use their servers since we host so much stuff on there.

If you are really concerned about possibly EVER losing the images you have on servimg, then I recommend going and buying either a flash drive or external hard drive and puting your images on that, that way, no matter what sites go down or dont go, you will always have back ups of the files and can simply re upoad someplace else.

What The Hell
Do you mean that Servimg could end one day?
It has thousands of pictures of me, it is impossible that I can move it to another place because it is so much!
Servimg must remain forever.

Servimg must remain forever.

I am saying that while there are no plans for it to close anytime soon or anytime in the foreseeable future, I nor anyone else can see the future, so I cant tell you whether servimg will remain forever or not.

Also you must bear in mind that we do not own or manage servimg, servimg is a seperate site/company, we simply pay to use their servers. We have no control over their decisions. I can tell you as it stands there are no plans to close it.

Of course no one here can tell anyone whether something will last forever, why? Because we can't see the future and cant see what the future holds. All we can tell you is that there are no plans as of now for it close. The only other thing I can suggest is, if your that concerned about your images is to back them up on a flash drive or external hard drive, where you know for sure they will be backed up forever.

10 years ago I know servimg, before having the forum in forumotion, already had an account in servimg, as they have commented while there is traffic and paid there are no problems in sight.Even if they closed quiet they would send an email to make a backup . I have copies of all my important images both physically and in the cloud on several servers like mega, dropbox etc...
It is always advisable to have a physical copy of everything important.

It might be hard for some people to hear, but nothing is absolute ; everything has an end, "memento mori" is a great example. So yes, servimg will eventually cease to be as with any other online service, such as Forumotion. What determines this eventual fate is profitability, demand, and so on. If these services stop being profitable, chances are quite likely they could be shutdown. I'm not saying this is happening anytime soon though, it's just an example of what CAN happen to ANY online service.

So if you plan on uploading thousands of files someplace, remember to keep the mindset that the service you're uploading to could eventually shutdown. You need to be prepared for the worst case scenario, so it's always best to backup content you wish to save on a hard disk, usb, etc.. as people have previously mentioned. The internet is a volatile place ; something can be there one minute and gone the next, remember that.
