    I doubt they will, as it would completely defeat the purpose of this policy change...

    No, tinypic would mean you link it to just any source. No tinypic/snipurl sites please.

    can tinypic be used to allow large file sizes?

    I think w1zz wants to disable anywhere that uses large files.

    tpu hosted sigpics are fine, they were not supposed to be disabled in the first place, might have been some kind of bug in the script it ran to invalidate all other sigs.

    tinypic won't be allowed
     
    Triprift and KH0UJ say thanks.

    Yes, there is no file size restriction on tinypic. It has limitted dimensions, but not size restrictions.

    Nope it still doesn't work. Exactly the same errors.

    I'll try within an hour or so from home, since prolly I have to reboot or remove the cookies and I'm just leaving from work atm.

    Edit: Thanks boss it worked. :)
