Oh dear - sorry that the putting pics up is trying. I understand - and I'm supposed to know these things. But we have to remember that these software things are invariably written by clever young teccy geek types.
Your "account settings" shouldn't make a difference - any registered user can put pics on.
I have found that if Photobucket is not playing ball, try a similar service from Yahoo called Flickr.
But, you can now upload pics directly from a computer onto your messages anyway. This is one thing that seems to be "better" since Proboards changed things.
If you do a "reply" (as opposed to "quick reply") you should see some buttons with symbols and letters etc. One of them shows a pic with "sunglasses". Click on here and it should enable you to upload a pic from your documents/pics. I think.
And yes, I think you may have mentioned your excitement - which I can understand.
I had an email today from Photobucket, yes the people who suddenly stopped hosting 3rd party sharing of photo's. Sites like this relied heavily on pics of the subject matter and many topics became unreadable because of the disappearance of photo's.
If it is what it seems, the email said they have had a change of mind and are putting back the links to photo's. I myself took all my photo's off their site so they will not be done, but if other forum users have not there is a chance some of the threads will come back to life. Here's hoping !!
I thought getting old would take much longer than it did.
