Marauploads used to be the Marapets images free hosting service. It used to be available to anyone who had a Marapets account, to host images for their marasites or forum siggies. The service proved to be more than Marapets could handle, and due to so many image hosting services available, it became obsolete.
Marauploads wasn't perfect either, the system was more problematic than it was worth. Sometimes it would be down, sometimes it wouldn't work properly. Later, and after about 4 years of existence on the 13th of November of 2009 Ian announced in the News, these words:
"RIP Marauploads - The FREE Marapets Image Uploads Service has been discontinued. Marapets simply outgrew the service, it became too expensive and unsustainable for us to provide a reliable and free image upload service to the number of players we have. We will be making changes to the site soon, allowing you to use images from other sites. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused, but it will give us more revenue and time to spend elsewhere on the site!"
