Linking pics vs attaching them to posts?

Post by Fall of Icarus » 30 Aug 2012, 19:23

Just wanted to ask if there is any preference with the admins if I should rather host the pictures I take on some other site and just link to them in my posts. I'm writing on some of the mods I'm installing on my drone, and figured I'd ask in case you guys want to save on bandwith costs... Then again I'm also fairly lazy, so if you don't mind at all that we just attach everything to the posts then I'd rather do that.

Pictures that are uploaded here are only visible if the user is logged on, a link/embedded external picture is displayed regardless

I prefer to upload them here because that way it always stays with the site regardless if the external place hosting the picture goes down.

Also it encourages lurkers to join the forum and perhaps participate so its a win win!
