Back in May, we learned the RFG Image Uploader on img.removedfromgame.com, made by {AP}, closed down the upload form due to repetitive rule breaking and {AP} can't keep up with the moderation, to the dismay of several Omnimaga users. The already uploaded pictures will indefinitely stay online, though.

Fortunately, Deep Thought and the Omnimaga team prepared us a new image uploader hosted by Sorunome. It features image upload (obviously) and an easier way to moderate images that might be rule-breaking. An URL shortener is also in the works.

Visit it on http://img.omnimaga.org and share us your thoughts and ideas!

Wow this is awesome! It was a shame that RFG closed since it was so fast and easy.

Great work and a big thanks to everyone involved in bringing this to life!

Glad to see a new uploader come out :D. Also it's nice that it's an official Omnimaga one as well, since it's easier to keep in touch with the moderators. RFG will be missed, though, and I hope old RFG images remains online.

Btw any idea if the RFG images could be moved to Omni with the sub-domain name? (to avoid breaking old links)

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

That is great news.
But what extensions does it support ? I tried ".BMP", ".bmp" and they didn't work. ".png" works though.

there was only .wbmp in the list, maybe a typo? I just added .bmp, so now it /should/ support
png, gif, jpg, jpeg, bmp, wbmp

It features image upload...
:o, jokes aside. This is good news, I never used the RFG one and wasn't even that aware that there was an image hosting thing on omni.

RFG will be missed, though, and I hope old RFG images remains online.
They say so in the main post: "The already uploaded pictures will indefinitely stay online, though."

I recall telling you about RFG, not sure though.
I can also help moderating the images, if you want.

I didn't realize people still used BMP files, so it wasn't in the checklist.

Simply adding "bmp" to the list won't work because the script also checks if it's actually the type of file it says it is, and the image manipulation library doesn't support BMPs. I'll add my own BMP check and update the page :)

Is there a way that we can view our previously uploaded images? I always worried that I was uploading duplicates on RFG because I could not remember the name of the image.

oh, fail
but when updating, please not my changes on line 4&10 and all at the bottom I added a whole new block or code, the login system :)

It is not that I still use bmp, it is that TI-ScreenCapture still uses it -.-°

Two things:
  • There is a Previous Uploads section on the bottom of the page—just click on an image thumbnail to get that image.
  • All images are checked if they're a duplicate of a previous image. If so, the URL of the previous image is returned.
Hope that works :)
