IMGFAST.NET.. a new Forumotion host for avatars?

Post by Eternal_Nightmare on September 28th 2010, 9:23 pm

Has Forumotion chosen a new host for avatars? Everytime I right click an avatar, the URL belongs to IMGFAST.NET, who by the way doesn't work properly... try it yourself! It takes me to a Forumotion error page.

www.imgfast.net

So is this an update or what?

If the forumotion avatars are being hosted there I would think its safe to assume that forumotion is hosting is avatars there...

pointless question? I think yes.

Hi,

It would be safe to assume so Wink

However, I cannot get it to load in my browser like a website, it's like it doesn't exist anymore???

Hmmm...

seems like he's right...

@Kirk, i right clicked your avatar and copied URL of the image, and got the following...

Code:

imgfast.net is a redirect that gives forumotion a way to make it appear that all user images on a forum (avatars, user-uploaded smilies, gallery images) are on one host.

The framework for this was put in place several months ago, at a great cost to us members. Remember when people lost their smilies, avatars, and gallery images? It wasn't a server breakdown as forumotion officials stated, it was forumotion messing up the Apache redirect code. Well, everything works today -- note how all three of these links go to the same image:

http://r29.imgfast.net/users/3412/19/22/63/avatars/5770-16.jpg
http://www.webartzforum.com/users/3412/19/22/63/avatars/5770-16.jpg
http://seankilbane.com/users/3412/19/22/63/avatars/5770-16.jpg

What I wonder is...is imgfast.net the best name they could come up with? Seems to me they could have solved a LOT of problems by using the servimg.com name, because then ALL user images would have appeared to be on the same host...

@ Mr Mario: I was bumping this topic until someone/an official gave a concrete answer. I didn't make this post just for people to guess if this is or isn't a new host.

@ Dion: As always, the guy with the most proper answer. Thank you for taking the time to explain this.

My question would be: why is Forumotion doing this? Doesn't all the avatars being hosted on the same host would cause major lag? What benefits does this bring?

imgfast is causing threads (on my forum) to lock-up or not load correctly when you open them

some smiley's and some avatars aren't loading


I didn't want to start a new thread about this so I'm posting a reply in this thread to alert the staff and so the mods know there might be a problem/issue and maybe someone needs to check into it ?

maybe this is just a temporary bug that will work itself out ? i dunno
