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.

As far as I know you can't link DA images, just the pages.

Anyway, I think you should remove photobucket from the list. Bandwidth is always exceeded so you can't see images either way.

E: Oh yeah, Mediafire has a kinda hidden feature that lets you link to pictures. I rarely ever use it myself.

I usually rely on sadpanda when I want to waste as little time as possible uploading something, with Photobucket as my go-to.

I have had no difficulty direct-linking images from DA, now or ever.

Photobucket does have serious bandwidth issues, but unless you're throwing it around on high traffic sites, it's not really a problem for small galleries to be used on tiny sites, i.e. this one. It's how most people handled Nuklear Wright in the past. Or how POS does (did?) reaction images.

You can but I'm not sure if you're allowed. Can someone who knows their way around DA poke around their ToS and policies and report?

Photobucket should be on the list even if it's overloaded. It works for me most of the time and it's a dedicated image hoster.

I thought it was pretty obvious that removing photobucket was a joke

Don't tell me your serious reactions were jokes too.
