Default Give me your tired, your poor, your image hosters

The list for now:
Blogspot
deviantart (.net, not .com, as that appears to be their image server)
filesmelt.com
Dropbox (including dl.dropboxusercontent.com)
Imageshack
Imgur
localhostr hostr (company name change)
Photobucket
Nuklearpower.com
Nuklearforums.com
sadpanda
snag.gy
Steam (should include any "steampowered" domain)
Tinypic
tumblr
waffleimages

Anticipated FAQ:

I've been here for years and I posted five thousand funny images, will those be kept?

Yes. The plugin only works for posts made after it's installed and activated. We'll tell you in advance. Do note that if you edit an old post after the plugin is active, it will apply to that post - better rehost any images in that post while you're at it.

I usually get the funny pictures I post from a site called IncrediblyHilariousPictures, and I just copy and paste their URLs, so I just submit IncrediblyHilariousPictures for the whitelist, right?

No, cutting down on that sort of thing is the whole point of the plugin. If that's what you do regularly you'll have to start rehosting your stuff. Ideally right now. We will review submissions and only put domains on the whitelist that are supposed to be hotlinked to. No content aggregators.

I use my own hosting, is that okay?

Sure, just give us the domain and we'll pop it into the list. You can PM it if you don't want to make it public.

--- Original OP start follows
Hey everyone, we're preparing to implement a technical method to cut down on image hotlinking, and we need your help to do it!

We want to come up with a whitelist of accepted image hosts and install a plugin. After we activate our plugin images not linked from those sources will no longer show up in new posts. Since we don't especially want to take away anyone's favourite image hoster in the whole world, and since we'd rather do the list in one go, here's the question we need you to answer:

When you post an image, where do you usually upload it?

Once we have the list done we'll move ahead and get this plugin started.
