Tinypic Disables International Uploads

Starting September 23, Tinypic.com is turning off uploads from international users. This means that if you are from a location outside of the Unites States, you cannot upload to Tinypic and your existing images will not be available and will not appear on your website or blog.

Here's the full notification from Tinypic:
Tinypic International is changing. Beginning September 23rd, you will no longer be able to upload content to Tinypic and your links will be turned off. Please begin using Photobucket to upload, share and link your images and videos.

Tinypic is no longer accepting uploads from international locations, and links are turned off. If you have content on Tinypic, you can still view the URLs and the content, but only on Tinypic. To upload, share, or link content, please go to Photobucket.com to register an account. You will need to upload your content again to your Photobucket account, but you will be able to share and link your images and videos. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope that you enjoy Photobucket, our premier image and video site”.
Photobucket is OK. The only problem is that it has limited bandwidth for images and photos.

Update: We do not know if it was hacked earlier or something, but if you access Tinypic now, it's working and the notification was gone.

Update, September 26, 2010: Tinypic has restored the service for international users. It has re-opened for international locations and has unblocked international uploads.
We heard from many of our users in regards to these changes and we appreciate your feedback. Tinypic has restored linking to your images and enabled uploading. Please rest assured no content was removed from the site. We tried to notify users on Tinypic and requested they move their content to Photobucket. Unfortunately this messaging was insufficient and has taken many of our users by surprise and we apologize. Our intent was to begin combining some of the best features of Tinypic and Photobucket, thereby offering users a better experience. Any changes in the future will be better communicated. Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience.
