I was just reading the rules in the Readers Rides forum that state that all images must be hosted by Imageshack. Is that still a rule?
I have just demonstrated in the Test forum how to link a thumbnail from flickr (also linking back to the original photo page as per flickr rules) that would seem to be a very appropriate method of posting images here.
Re: Image hosting limitation? Thanks for the reply, Jalal.
I'd be surprised if photos hosted on flickr became unavailable except through decisions made by the user (such as deleting a photo, etc). I guess it is possible that flickr changes url structure over time, thus invalidating the original ref.
It does seem that Imageshack have a very large bucket to hold what must be millions of photos, and I agree that they seem to be a pretty stable host. They have been around for as long as I can recall. Wouldn't it be fun to pore over the images that people upload. Almost like hitting the Random link button on Wikipedia!! Ok, that might just be me...
