    Due to the aggressive nature of new image hosting sites' advertising and revenue generating campaigns, we've been forced to switch to an allowed hosting list for images on Kitty-Kats. We strongly recommend,, or for hosting your images.

    If you choose not to use one of these three hosts, you must choose from the following list of further image host options:

    Code: ‡ ‡
    We are not closed minded with regards to this list and will entertain suggestions for adding to and removing hosts. You may make a hosting suggestion in THIS THREAD; we will not respond to PM requests for host additions. Hosts will be evaluated by staff members based on their overall user friendliness. Excessive pop-ups, adblocker denials, redirects, unnecessary scripts, or overall impression will prevent hosts from being accepted.

    Be advised that hosts being on this list is not a guarantee that they will be on the list forever. If a host is altered in the future to not be up to our standards, it will be removed.

    Note: all image hosts that we allow will be on this list including personal ones that do not permit public use.
    ‡ denotes a private host​

    These dead hosts have been removed:,,, and

    damimage and imagefox will be removed Wednesday so please make adjustments. It's likely that the other similar hosts will also be removed (imagedecode, imageteam, imgproof, and jovoimage). It would behoove you to switch to a host other than one of these.

    If you have a problem with any of the hosts on our list, please post a thumbnail example of the host in the [thread=2068380]request thread[/thread] along with your reasoning for staff to evaluate them.

    as long as I'm annoyed about people too lazy to read first post in this thread, I will give 5 infraction points to whoever posts here something like:

    • why img-fucker isn't allowed?

    • please add img-fucker to your list

    • etc

    WT clearly said we have a special thread for imagehosts considerations HERE, use it!

    Imagedecode has been removed from our hosts list and links will now be censored due to their phishing/virus schemes.

    25 Jan 2014 add:

    imageteam, imgproof, and jovoimage have all been removed from our list because of their ties to imagedecode. Failure to adequately check your advertisers before implementing them on your site is a security risk that we will not be subjecting our members to.

    Dead hosts imgftw and miragepics have been removed as well.

    I cleaned this thread of all the chat. Only posts that pertain to hosts being added or removed will be left in here and I will trim those to keep this thread down to a single page.

    Here is an example of a problem someone posted:


    When I go onto someone's site and something like this pops up, I don't ever go back to that site. Especially when the malware locks up my pc. And that is not something we want happening here. We want people to be safe and feel safe when they visit us.

    S-type Manager Staff Member removed from list! Too many complaints!
  19. RandomChance

    RandomChance Global Moderator Staff Member is now back on the allowed list. If you find any sort of malicious ad on their site, please contact staff about it as soon as possible. Also contact Imgtrex and if possible, send them a screenshot of the problem ad so they can rectify it. Thanks for your patience.

    miragepics has been added to the list and imgtaxi has been removed. In imgtaxi's case, getting on the list doesn't guarantee your spot for life and unfortunately they will not be allowed back again. Instituting a java requirement and click to continue feature after being allowed here is a good way to be permanently dis-allowed, especially if you're operating under an unsecure scripting protocol like imgshot.
