    Now I don't really know how many people use cubeupload here on Facepunch, but judging by our stats we've got a fair following. For those of you who DO use the site for uploading your pixel drawings, camwhore shots and various other strange things we've seen, you may be delighted to know we've just released version 3.5 of the web interface!

    Here's some new features:


    Multiple image selection, so you can add all the images you want in one go.

    Drag and Drop uploading, drag and drop one or many images and they’ll be ready to upload.

    Image previews, before you even upload you can see the images you’ve selected.

    New interface, cubeupload has never looked as good.

    Upload progress bars, something we’ve wanted for a long time, and we know you want too.


    You can visit the site at http://www.cubeupload.com.

    Also, take a look at our hilariously minimalist blog for more information, or let us know what you think below!

    You never actually link to the site (other than the blog, I guess). Just saying.

    Looks nice! How about a feature to click a button to automagically copy the link you're clicking (perhaps a 'copy' button beside the link)? It's not a big deal, really, it just adds to the ease of use for some people.

    Why ban? This is fact. I use it all of the time and it's certainly good.

    Because it's trolling. If you reply to a thread about Call of Duty saying "Battlefield is better", you're trolling.

    Also thanks to everyone else for the comments, do give us constructive criticism if you can think of any.

    We've got a few incoming projects like that, but not a chrome extension exactly. It's definitely something we want to think about though.

    I'm currently using Dropbox and am quite happy with it.
    What're the advantages of using cubeupload?

    And I laughed at the OP:

    5mb, the site says.

    Edited:

    I like the link shortener, and the option to either change or retain file names.

    To be honest, Dropbox is a perfect solution if that's how you like to share stuff - I use it for syncing documents and crap.

    *obligatory dropbox is better post*

    Well, I guess I'll stick to Dropbox then.
    Is cubeupload similar to Dropbox? Like, do uploaded pictures stay uploaded? And is it for all files?

    Good job, but there are plenty of other sites that serve the exact same purpose but with more filetypes and a larger file size limit. You need to think of an extremely enticing feature if you want any hope of this gaining popularity.

    Few questions I may have missed:

    How reliable is this for long term hotlinking?
    Is there any compression for images?

    We don't delete stuff unless it's against the super serious terms of service :)

    I would say our "thing" is we do this for fun, we're here for anyone who wants to use us.

    Anyway, keep up the work with cubeupload.

    We're very reliable for hotlinking, the site has been going for over 6 years now. We compress jpegs at 98% quality, we've found this is the sweet spot for the quality to filesize ratio. Other formats are untouched.

    A few questions:

    What sort of traffic does CubeUpload get?

    Does CubeUpload make money?

    If so, how?

    If not, how do you support the site and how do you plan to keep the site should you get more popular?

    We don't disclose statistics information.

    Does CubeUpload make money?
    Yes, but it's not a profitable thing. We do it because it's fun.

    If so, how?
    We also don't discuss our financials, sorry. I'll say this though - if you see an advert on a site, you can assume that site will be getting some kind of revenue from it.

    If not, how do you support the site and how do you plan to keep the site should you get more popular?
    Our infrastructure at the moment is more than capable of dealing with the load if our site was to be three times as popular, if not more. If there was a need for even more power, we have plenty of options.

    I saw this post yesterday and got today in my math class a brainstorm - i get lots of them - about this project and some features you add.
    Here's what i got:
    -Albums, like imgur - i don't know if you already got.
    -Allow several video types and display them in a player (for premium users maybe?)
    -Transform video to gifs - pc and from youtube with or without a personalized time frame.
    -Premium users get more file size.

    Some things can be bad i dunno, i just got this brainstorm about this and why not share with you, at least i have something to consider.

    Trolling is exactly as I described. It stops being trolling when you present a constructive opinon, rather than opinion stated as fact.

    Fair point, and you could argue that there's a conflict of interest. Having said that, I stand by my actions.
