    Hey I'm not getting the image load progress bar or completion notification currently. It does seem to upload if I let it sit a bit.

    What are your specs for: OS, browser, flash version.

    Also do you use noscript, adblock or similar stuff?

    Gosh sorry forgot to come back to this, it was adblock, thought I had already disabled it on BG, but for the record, Windows 7, Flash v. 11.3 and Chrome with Adblock, will keep that progress bar from coming up.

    Added a level up system in BG which gives people more BG Bucket space. Your current level and TNL can be seen right under the upload form.

    Ghetto-ed something to upload from URL. It's ugly because Maguspk wasn't around to do it pretty.

    Rewrote the codebase of the BG Bucket almost completely over the last 4 days and migrated the 600k-ish files (including the videos) to Amazon S3.

    This was a lot of big changes so complain here if things sploded.

    This is a bit crazy, and no need to add it soon/at all, but perhaps add something to check if an image you're uploading has been added to your, or any other BGer's bucket, previously and ask if you'd like to use that instead of uploading? I know I have a couple repeats.

    It won't solve anything previous, unless you went and relinked everything already posted, which I assume is a fucking nightmare, but it would maybe cut a little on storage needs? (idfk what shit like this costs, not my area).

    There's already something like that but was never completed.

    Also seems the upload from URL is somewhat broken-ish?
