Default External photo links

In some older threads the external photo links don't work, fair enough, they are old. However Photobucket are now charging for third party links (some $300 a year http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-40492668 ) another good reason to post photos in threads.

The mods encourage the use of images uploaded to the forums.

As you say some posts have been rendered useless as the links to images no longer work.

I think you should tell people (perhaps by putting some message on each section) to only use your picture up-loaders rather than other picture sites. Otherwise you will have a grave yard of dead links.

I think the paying for third party links will spread to other photo sites that are currently are allowing it.

A picture only takes a few mouse clicks to embed here for posterity.

True. Time permitting we often edit posts to upload images, depending on the type of post.
