To allow for picture attachments on the forum we are allocated free of charge 200mb of space, we are currently fast approaching this limit.
We can pay for more storage on a monthly basis but this is something I don't really want to do as I would prefer the forum to be free for the members to use, I don't want to make a change or ask for donations.
I don't want to deter anyone from posting and adding attachments, therefore when we get near the storage limit I go through the stored images and delete some of the ones in older threads to free up space. If this is in one of your posts I apologise but hope you understand the reason why.
As an alternative to adding attachments I would encourage members to use a hosting service such as postimages.org or similar. Details of how to do this can be found in this section of proboards help.
Postimage seem to of had a problem with their .org domain and so photos hosted there are no longer shown on the forum, there is a work around and that is to change the .org to .cc by doing this you should see the picture again. I have changed some of the more recent posts to allow for this however many of the old posts are still not showing the picture. Should you want a particular post updating and can’t do it yourself let me know.
Note this does not affect any new photos you upload to Postimage they will automatically be given the correct .cc domain.
This is what they posted a few days ago
postimg.ORG domain is locked by Registry, no prior notice. While we hope to resolve the issue, we chose postimg.CC as our new home. Please update codes embedded in your websites.
Your pictures are still there, but any pics links you posted you have to change the .org in the link to .cc to get them to show again.

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
