Do we remove the externally linked image upload option ?

Yes, I'd rather preserve the F-Ribs And Sibs forum from thread spoiling and move forward by uploading all images directly to the forum in the future. I realise some members may no longer post images if this action is implemented but moving on it will preserve the forum for the future.

No, I wish to continue using a third party storage site to link to the forum.

I'm not sure, I am concerned that members may leave the forum if Admin implement this action.

I do like Gurnards concern about Youtube links. Guess the same thing could happen with them but I don't know how hosting the video could impact this site and if you could manage that much data storage and processing?

I also understand the copyright concern on images. I've sold some of my images in the past and was worried about it but I don't do that anymore. You can add watermarks to them that help some. Now if it happens, I'm more honored that someone enjoyed my photo that much than to worry about it. I don't think we should have an automatic re-sizing for fear it may be too small? There have been times I've zoomed in fairly close on an image to help understand it more when another member posted a pic to help me out. There is a Whaler forum with great members and information however they have the size restriction so small, the images that are posted are almost useless. I've since refrained from visiting that site out of frustration.

Wrote a note said, 'back in a minute'. Bought a boat and I sailed off in it.
