I haven't gotten around to creating an imgur account yet, but it seems to be the leading candidate.  The downside is that imgur does not seem to have any controls over who can see the photos.  Everyone will be able to see them and comment. Some of the comments are a cesspool.  I'm still trying to find something that will allow 3rd party linking.  Signing up for webserver just to share photos seems a bit excessive to me.  I used to pay for a shell server specifically to access IRC.  Since they were also my dial-up ISP it wasn't that big a deal.  I maintained a list of electrical engineering jokes that folks would still visit every month.  Kind of funny to see what traffic I was getting.  I did have to put up a robots.txt as bing/google/yahoo was eating too much of my monthly bandwidth allowance. 

While I'm happy to read your 100 strangers project, I'm not up to that particular challenge.  I'd be happy to try and continue the story cubes once I figure out a hosting situation.

Oh I agree with you there regarding the comments in imgur. I was uploading photos of our guests for our next convention and one idiot left a really rude comment about the look of one of the guests. I reported it but doubt it will do any good.

I was hoping setting up albums might mean you could make them private but doesn't look like it.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

Have either of you checked out wix.com? I don't have the time to experiment with it just now, but they offer 500mb storage and 500mb bandwidth free. You can upgrade with a monthly fee, but it seems to me their free 500mb can work for our purposes.

Flickr allows linking!! There have been several, silent updates. I have checked their link generating dialog box before with no success. Today it worked! Choose BBCode.

Ok... I did want to share that pic  ::).  but more exciting is that we can link our photos from a free service! Am surprised no one has responded to that considering we were looking into it just a few weeks ago.  :(

Maybe I'll reopen my Flickr account in that case, although Imgur seems to be ok for the few photos I'm posting these days - mainly on my convention forum.

Perhaps Flickr are trying to grab some of the unhappy PB customers.
