Cool Photo hosting

I understand this would cost the site, but one of the reasons I believe this site is getting slower and slower is the lack of sales, and I believe it's because it's harder to post photos.

I'd be all for some sort of yearly subscription thing that would help the site, in order to be able to just attach photos. Like a "Premium Member" and I'm sure you could think of some other perks.

Thoughts?

If the sales are slowing because it is harder to post pics, then we have bigger issues

Just use google photos. Ensure the pictured is "shareable" and then link the pictures. Done

I find imgur very easy to use. Easier than photobuck ever was. Or maybe I've become smarter? However, my recent life decisions does not prove this to be true.. 😳

I have to admit i can post pics on SBF and on Toronto Golf Nuts but I cant post here.

I have no idea what i'm doing wrong. I could post here without problem before using Photobucket.

ALL I'm saying is I'd "donate" to the site to have that feature. I use IMGUR now, and it's fine - but I personally first post to Facebook.

I often wondered what the cost/effort would be to update the version of the forum software to something more modern (maybe like what SBF is using) and the additional hosting requirements for storage, etc.

I'm guessing this site doesn't generate the user and add revenue to justify an increased cost like that. Especially with all of the free hosting options out there. Link to google photos, imgur, etc. SBF has 10x the population base, and a retail site to justify any incremental cost of hosting images.

Even that site has seen huge declines, and it has nothing to do with hosting pics, and everything to do with Facebook.

Totally, it's unfortunate. Like I said, I post to Facebook because it's easier - and I'm sure others do as well. I'd rather post here, help my fellow community out, but I'm not always behind a computer to cut and paste photo links... it's easier to just take a pic, attach, write description and bammo, it's posted.

I'm just saying I'd pay to be able to do that, to support the site, to *maybe* help with traffic.
