Plus you get your name in tacky red letters too, Just an added incentive :?

The biggest issue without forum hosting of photos is that members come and go and so do their "free" image accounts on third party servers. Images disappear regularly on forums structured this way. Just imagine the Charger/dc to dc troubleshooting tread with no photos or schematics :shock: (on this forum it is only a matter of time!!)

As part of the moderating crew on 3 other forums over the years (more than 25,000 posts in 8 years at Miata.net as an example) the upgraded membership was about the only free 'perk' for the hundreds of hours of work the moderators put in every year. Here, that doesn't seem to be worth the $30 to them, so it's not something I'm interested in paying
