    Most ISP's include some amount of webspace with subscription. Lots of people have been fooling with photobucket and similar for years w/o need.

    Back when we signed up in 2013, the only options here to post pictures were "pay RRB for the privilege" or "post them free through a third party hosting site." From 2015:

    (Thanks, Internet Wayback Machine! https://web.archive.org/web/2014010...m/index.php?threads/how-to-post-photos.80238/ )

    When I first signed up, I wasn't sure how long I'd end up hanging around here, and I was too cheap to pay $20 a year for membership -- so now I'm forced to "pay" in other ways, like going back and uploading pictures to 100 or so posts! :doh:

    Yeah, I see the misconception there. "Third party" can be your own webspace as well, which is what I used before RRB started hosting their own pics. I've never used photobucket or anything like it, never liked the ads and lack of control.
