[kde-community] A call for finding Free imgur replacement

Hi,
Not everyone uses it but some KDE people do: imgur.com and similar
services for online image pastes.
Including me.

The usage rate is much heavier than hithub but it's not indicated it
as a big deal.
But it is: bug report, review requests, emails (including mailing
lists) and wikis link to these files that disappear after months or
weeks.
The effect is: losing information, losing the backlog.

Equivalent Free services do not exist to my knowledge. I mean
equivalent, with public access working with the pastebin plasmoid for
example.
There's some attempt to use a storage within the VDG but from what I
see it's not equivalent of the image pastes. Also phab's Pholio [1] is
not equivalent of the basic pastes, and is login-walled. We cannot
even link to these images from KDE blogs...

Similar issue are images on "kde" blogs that sit outside of
http://blogs.kde.org. I am using the latter but its images storage
support is so 90s that I upload images elsewhere. I imagine may people
use Blogger or Wordpress with proprietary storage just like that of
github or imgur.

Maybe someone has ideas? Is it too resource-hungry to have?
