Is it still happening or is it possible that this was just a temporary problem?

no guys...not a false alarm they are now using the Captcha method before you can upload an image.
I've been trying for days to upload and decided to visit their site and do it manually that's how I found out.

Just found out the same thing, damn captcha! and Imageshack is such a BAAAAAD image host, the quality is rubish.

Is this fixable? If it's not, can we make another plugin for a different host?

Thanks.

i second that!!!

imgur.com is what i've been using for the past year or so!!!

Once you go imgur, you never go back!!!!!

Please make a plugin for imgur.com

its 100 times better than tinypic anyways!

many thanx!

yeah I'm guessing that Tinypic won't reverse their use of the 'Captcha' from now on which makes the plugin useless from now on...
I hope an alternative can be added sometime soon.

it is fairly easy to make a custom XML plugin for Rightload to support imgur.com
I did it in about 5 mins....... working great now

u need to visit their site and request an API key once u do that the rest you can do via the rightload GUI just create a new plugin and fill in the required fields :)

ok- here u go.
just get your API key first from imgur.com (click here to register for an api key -- its free)
wait for your key (should come pretty quickly)
save the XML file I attached here and edit the part where it says
AdditionalFormFields="key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
change xxxxxxx to your real API key
then in Rightload go to Tools->import servers
import the xml file
done  ;D
