Thumbs up Uploading Pictures.

One thing I find worth changing is how we upload photos. If you click on the picture box when making a post, you have to provide a link. This means we have to have our photos online somewhere. This is actually a pretty old method of photo sharing that's been replaced by more "economical" ways of doing it, which is what I suggest...

I think if you click on the photo icon, you should have an uploader tool appear so you can upload pictures directly from your computer, and not have to worry about finding some image hosting website to put them on beforehand.

Like you, I don't like the hassle of uploading externally. However, if members uploaded all of their pictures (think of how many get posted each week) on this site, the server space cost would be fairly large. It could be purely economical as to why the current system is in place.

There IS an uploader tool. When making a post on an existing thread, click "Go Advanced" then scroll down and press the "Manage Attachments" button. When creating a new thread, the "Manage Attachments" button is there from the start.

The reason it is the way it is now is because this forum used to not have a way to upload photos. People got into the habit of hosting externally. Once the forum was bought out (or something like that) and the photo hosting became available- people still continued to use the external hosting. There is nothing stopping anyone from using the forum's hosting though.

[EDIT]- This clause in the board rules may also cause some to host externally.
