noob.hu was a popular Hungarian one-click image sharing service. It started in 2007 (?), and soon became popular – users admired its speed, easy handling and reliability (not deleting pictures).
However, in 2012, they suspended their operation for some months, and after that, they placed a message on the website that the site has been closed. The images are still available, though.
Image URLs (since 2009): noob.hu/<YYYY>/<MM>/<DD>/<FILENAME>.<EXT>, where YYYY-MM-DD is the upload date.
Thumbnails: noob.hu/<YYYY>/<MM>/<DD>/tn/<FILENAME>.<EXT>, where YYYY-MM-DD is the upload date.
There seem to have been an older system (dating back to 2007) with the URL structure noob.hu/<YY>/<MM><DD>/<FILENAME>.<EXT>, but those pictures seem to be unavailable now.
Unfortunately, robots.txt prevented/prevents Wayback Machine (an even Google) from scraping the site.
user:bzc6p has saved the pictures for which he could find links on the internet.
~13,500 pictures from 2009-07-22 to 2012-07-26, what could be discovered, with corresponding thumbnails: https://archive.org/details/noob_hu_images, in two batches (WARC files), 6.8 GiB total.
