Photos in threads

It has come to light that some members are inserting photos in threads which are "thumbnails" and require them to be clicked on in order to see the full size image. This is not the preferred way to insert photos on this site. In order to try to keep the site as 'clean' as possible, without advertising and to make a better user experience, please do not use thumbnails from any image hosting site.

When posting an image in your thread, please use the "Direct Link" option on your photo hosting site. This will place the image directly into the thread and will not require a 3rd party site to open in order for the picture to be viewed.

The main reason for this request is advertisements are flooding some of the 3rd party photo hosting sites. From time to time, viruses can also infiltrate our computers. Especially if the 3rd party site is sketchy.

Any questions, post below. Thank you!

Maybe I need a little help. I created and uploaded to I then copied the direct link option to a post. It shows up as a link and not the actual picture. Am I doing it wrong?
