Please upload picture to this site instead of linking to them. For some people (like myself) the linked pictures may be blocked depending on where you are viewing the site (they are often blocked when I view the site while at work). Also, we have a lot of older posts where the pictures have been removed from the outside sites so the links are now broken, the pictures are lost.

Absolutely. Also, just in case, for instructions see this post by Sandy.

I intentionally do not upload my pictures to TP to save Sandy some bandwidth.

This. If you ever see a post from me with an image you can't see, let me know. I'll rehost them elsewhere and send them to you.

I don't think Sandy is concerned about trying to save bandwidth used by pictures. Here is a quote from the link posted above:
Quote:
image attachments remain the prefered method of displaying images on the forum since they give the forum the greatest amount of control over the image, and uploading the image to the server ensures future availability of the image.

Hosting your pictures off site gives the owner much better control over them. Especially if they want to use them in places other than the forum.

Did you ever think that there's probably a reason for that?

What? You mean like wanting us to work while we are at work???? :shock:
Like that will ever happen.... :lol: :lol:

For me it's the snow building thread. None of my computers like that link. I've not once been able to get into it. There must be some vicious malware in there somewhere. I've tried from a number of different IP addresses and not a single one will let me view those photos.

A tiny bit off topic, but regarding old picture links to puzzles which were in the museum, why were they removed? Was the server updated at some point and they got lost along the way?
