Thank you Mauimonkey. It has helped me considerably. It's nice to have considerate help on these forums. Not all of us are highly tech savvy, but love their islands and want to post pictures like everyone else. Thanks for taking the time. :D

Also, don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network.

I'm on a network of forums that was specifically blocked by imgur and expressly told this applies to forum hot linking. not being caught or punished =/= being alright.

You use every site the same. get the direct image link and shove it between the img tags. there's even a button here. I'm not gonna provide an entire tutorial solely because I pointed out imgur might ban you or this site.

Thank you again Jenna for the info. The more resources the better. Have quoted you here to highlight the other resources available for people to use. I realize you are only trying to be helpful as well. Again, the only intention of this thread is to help people more easily navigate the imgur site. Since it has been in use on this forum for so long with no problems and the monitors of this forum have not removed this or other threads (as I mentioned there are numorous other threads on this topic that also give instructions for this site, this is not the first, only or last thread I am sure) I hope we are on the safe side. My real hope it that people are able to share the things they enjoy about their island and this game. :D

Proud of your island? Share it with us below!

Note! The process to get the BBCode has changed. To post a photo to our forums, please follow these instructions:

- Go to http://imgur.com/
- Upload your image. (You don't need to register.)
- Once the upload is complete, hover over the image. You will see a down arrow appear - click on it.
- Click on "Get share links"
- Copy and Paste the "BBCode" link into your forum post


This is straight from Pirate Plum herself. I do not think that anyone needs to be in fear to use the imgur site. Carry on Trademasters. Upload away. Happy posting everyone! :D

If you have a free Photobucket account you can post pics here via their site. You upload your pics from your machine to photobucket and then post here. It is actually easier to use than imgur.

I've only used imgur in the past because it was suggested by Pirate Plum.

My new avatar and this gif introducing my gang :lol: are examples of the possibilities.



Who let the dogs out?

No...this needs to be AT the TOP! :lol: Topnotch work Maui and 'over-the-top' considerate!!! I do intend on checking out a couple of the other photo linking services listed above. Anything that makes it easier for me to post my trivial and [often times] unnecessary pics has got to be better right?! :lol:
