ImgTC's extended downtime (due to a DDOS attack from some unknown a******) has been causing an uproar on CE, because (after Imgur decided to screw us over) it's the only image hosting site that works with GameFAQs' built-in image embedder that isn't exclusively for gifs. I think adding other free image hosts to the list of supported websites, even if it's only one new option, would be a big help for the boards here, because then there would still be a working alternative should ImgTC go down again in the future. After a quick Google search, I found two potentially good choices:

https://imgshare.io/

Would such an addition be possible/considered?

I'm honestly not sure why every site embeds, to be honest.

Not a mod, but I'm like 99% sure that Giphy and Gfycat are the only ones that are supported by the built-in embedder besides ImgTC, and (like I mentioned) those are exclusively for gifs. If there's another one that's supported but isn't only for gifs, then I don't know it.

That one could work too.

It embeds just fine with the third-party ImageFAQs extension, so unless this site pulls what Imgur pulled and specifically bans GameFAQs from direct linking to it, it would work fine with GameFAQs image embedding if the site was added. Or at least, it should. I think...

This is what I get the first time I click one of their links. Clicking a second time gives me a direct image.

Might not be a good sign if GameFAQs tried embedding with them. Can't say for sure though.
