I've noticed on a couple of the other boards, that you don't have to host your photo's on a separate site, then go through all the hassle of posting a pic from a hosted site. You can post them straight from your computer (My photo's, or wherever you store them). Much easier procedure. Is there any way this could be done on the Sniffer site?

This has been raised many times. *In short, the sniffer just doesn't want to host pictures. *Remember that this a commercial site and much more is at stake with regard to liability issues. *If you are a "just for fun" website and somebody finds out that you are hosting copyrighted or inappropriate material, all you usually get is a warning or a cease and desist order. *If you are a private business, it's a different situation.

Thanks for the explanation Doc. I assumed it was a liability issue, most things are.
