Sorry, but as I see it, you didn't want a discussion, you wanted the ability to do something that was against the rules. When it was pointed out WHY you couldn't do what you wanted it became everyone elses fault for not agreeing with you and that we were not willing to discuss it. All everyone has done is point out that it's the rules, which we obviously are happy with as we're still here posting images all over the place.

I'm pretty sure Ben (the site owner) posted his reasons on another thread somewhere, if I get a few minutes I'll have a trawl through and find it.

Re: Why images HAVE TO be from gallery ?

It's difficult for me to understand "all this malicious activities" that can happen on this forum.

Perhaps it's because this forum is big, surely you had problems in the past and some solutions was these restrictions. And I don't use FF for years, and mainly in a few sections; so I don't see all.
Although it's the only forum I use that is so restrictive and on others, and they don't have a lot a "malicious activities".
But I respect how this forum works, I was just asking why. As I can see,it's already thoughtful and (I hope) for good reasons.
I'm still not convinced, this is my point of view. (and a few others as I can see). Never mind. I asked why, I have many responses, we do not see things the same way, simply.

Donate to FiatForum ? I already donate my time (as all here), I already pay my server to host my sites and pics, and, after this discussion it's not at all a thing I plan, to be honest

Perhaps it's because english is not my main language and I use words they are not always good/have a small difference in meaning.
Yes I was asking why this restrictive rule is there
And yes again, I was asking if this is possible to change this.
I had answers, different of my point of view. But its my point of view, simply. (I say the same in my previous post - I posted before I saw yours).

But many responses was "the rules are the rules", please do not discuss the rules. So it's why I say it's difficult to discuss.
And no, it's not a problem if majority of people do not agree with me. We can't always have same point of view (and fortunately).

I will search in the forum to better understand history of this rules.

You choice, but as you'll know, having your own server, forums are not free to host, hence restrictions for people who don't want to donate - you already get a lot free on here, a single small donation to unlock a lot more isn't too unreasonable imo, but its your money and your choice

Re: Why images HAVE TO be from gallery ?

Fwiw I think ALL photos should be hosted on here and this rigorously enforced in all sections. There are huge gaps in some of the threads, which everyone accepts is a problem. Personally I hate the photo bucket, snapshot, etc images too - they often "go down", are very hard to view depending on what device you're using, you usually can't zoom in on them, and some (like Farcebook) won't allow access to people not signed into it.

Why shouldn't everything be standardised anyway? If it works best for everyone, that's a good thing!

Re: Why images HAVE TO be from gallery ?

I have to agree, I feel that the only places where externally hosted images should be accepted are Leisure Lounge/Spamalot, Auction Watch and in any threads tagged as Off Topic. Given that the only place where the rule is enforced (and despite protestations to the contrary, with good reason) is Members Motors and that you can get unlimited storage space for 1, I'm of the opinion that the OP is making an issue out of nothing.

Seriously, after this thread, do you really think donating is in my mind ? Again, it's not because we share not the same opinion, it's because discuss rules seems to be banned...
Yes I know how much cost a server. But with advertising on this site, and donations received on the two firsts month, server is already paid for a year.

I share the same point of view with pics hoster's your describe : not the best and far from reliable.
But, again, if forum propose pics hosting, people will use it, simply. As it is simpler to use the integrated one, why searching another ?
Yet, this not mean blocking others : if you already have pics on internet, you can link them. Simply.

Internet has a good name : cross links, shared addresses, pictures is the way it is made. Wanting to have a most consistent forum is a great thing, wanting to make it "sealed" is not as good.

Oh by the way, one strange thing: in this topic, except matt93 (that think like me) you are all donated members...

See you

Re: Why images HAVE TO be from gallery ?

This is just going round and round in circles-

OP wants to host pictures but can't understand that the rules of site say this can't be done, there is no discussion required.

donations on ff last for life so someone could donate 1 and host every photo they have ever taken on fiat forums servers for life and never have to pay for their own server.

there is many reasons we are all donated members its because we are not selfish, things we get for a small donation give us more than the value of the donation, and we see no ads.

1 or thereabouts would solve all this, but NO, you need to keep on and on and trying to tell us that external hosting is the way to go, until such time that member who uses said hosting pulls it, leaving any thread totally useless. Well done! Have a cookie

I don't want, I asked for. I have had the answer, as I said, no problems.
I'm not convinced, but I have not to be. I use it like this or not. But if asking something or a little change result in "this is like this, go away" this is not a good mentality.

Donating and no ads, it's fair. Thanks for information.

How much a year of hosting FF cost do you think ? I think it's well covered by ads and donations.

But again, donating it's not a problem, for hosting pics or not. The problem is it's not possible to discuss something. I start this thread (with smile, read first post) and all answers are angry, and I cant really understand why.
We don't share same opinion, it's the life. But respect is one thing, and from "forums lovers" it's even more important. Even if I'm wrong. Even if we don't think the same way as you.
Seriously, it was just a question !!! and answers are "go away". I can't understand what the problem is with my question, but after years of great things here and good contact with other members it's sad to see this mentality.

There is nothing to discuss. There was no animosity until your point blank refusal to accept that this forum only allows pictures that are hosted by the forum. Even now I think the responses are calm and respectful. If your not happy with the answers your getting that is not our fault. As has been said before, there are too solutions: live with it and stop moaning or leave the forum.

Now this I think is the kind of answer that the OP has a problem with, as what you're basically saying is "the rules are the rules, don't question them!" without giving an answer as to why the rule is in place. That said, many times in the first 10 or so posts of this thread did myself and others explain why the rule is in place. If you don't like it that's fair enough, but "while you live in my house you'll live by my rules".
