I've had no luck using Image Shack
or Photobucket to link an image.

I see Sorcerer's Elizabeth Montgomery
pic and a joke I posted (Perfect Husband)
only have the link lines displayed now.

Is this just a problem for me or is anyone
else not seeing certain images?

No, you are quite right, every single posted image has been transformed into a posted link instead today. I was bemused by this as well. :confused:

I thought that was a problem my end as my firewall was playing up!
Aww my bootiful pictures, people have to click to see them! (It would be the day I finally got around to making a signature pic :rolleyes: )

I noticed this yesterday while trying to be a smart ass while trying to post in the "there's a fake on LPSG" thread.

Pappy might be right that Rob_E is trying to prevent nudity in the threads.

Yeah, I blew one of my less vital gaskets when I saw that.

I have been receiving upwards of 20 reported posts per day about nudity in posts. Also, some people post large photos in the post or their signature and it breaks the display. Thus, I have hacked the board to always show images as links. At the cost of forcing users to click a link to see the pic, we gain a nice display with no chance of unexpected nudity in posts.

I guessed that was probably why. I can understand the reason although I did enjoy having a cool banner jpg in my sig line.

Yes, even I, the board's epitome of conservatism *rolls eyes* have displayed nude images in my posts all the while agreeing with the Master that avatars should be clothed.

I am a hipocritical toady.

... and don't you forget it.

You make up for it by providing us with an endless stream of filthy celebrity photos and we LOVE you for it!
