Bayimg is an imagehosting platform from the people behind piratebay.org
It was unstable and announced to be offline some time ago and is now back, but for unknown time.
Bayimg went offline, when the servers of piratebay got raided. https://torrentfreak.com/pirate-bay-what-raid-police-never-got-our-servers-150921/
In April 2016, the TPB Team announced, that Bayimg will return, but only for a short amount of time. See here: https://torrentfreak.com/pirate-bays-image-hosting-site-bayimg-returns-for-a-bit-160425/
The Site is now online ever since, but it is not sure, how long it will stay that way.
How can I help?
Running a Warrior
You can start up a Warrior and there select bayimg. (If you don't really care what you are archiving, select ArchiveTeam's Choice instead, as at some points ArchiveTeam may prioritize another project.)
Running the script manually
If you use Linux and you're a bit familiar with it, you can try running the script directly.
The instructions can be found at github.com/ArchiveTeam/bayimg-grab.

Donating to the Internet Archive
Content downloaded by the ArchiveTeam will be uploaded to the Internet Archive, where it will be stored and be available – hopefully – forever. However, storing it costs thousands of dollars in the long run. So, if you can afford, please consider donating to the Internet Archive, so that this piece of history can be kept for us all. http://archive.org/donate
