Dont know if you guys and gals have heard, but photobucket stopped providing 3rd party hosting (like uploading a pic there and posting it here) for their free accounts. From what I can tell, there are alot of forums I frequent that have long standing threads that are usless info. Photobucket is basically holding

the photo sharing hostage, get a paying account and you can share your pics again.

Kudos to the USMF for foreseeing this type of problem and making members post pics through the forum!

And we don't charge a thing for free hosting of your images right here on the forum. :)

 

Yes it can be expensive (which is why free hosting is going the way of full service gas stations) to store data -which grows with each new post- but our membership has always been free along with the benefit of uploading images directly to the forum.

Thank you.

 

We realized some time ago these steps were necessary to preserve the content on our Forum.

That's one of the reasons why this forum is the best and you have to donate what you can.  The Moderators do a Great job.
