The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Hey folks.
Been away for a while, but i'm back now and would like to update you on what i've been up to - but my usual way of adding photos to a post doesn't seem to work anymore.
I use Imgur, and i used to copy and paste the link to it using the Img button above, but this site isn't liking that at all.
I know Imgur has changed a bit - there used to be a number of links to choose from, including one specifically for Forums, but that's been replaced now with just a Share option.
Does anyone know, am i doing something wrong?
Or, if Imgur isn't compatible anymore, can anyone recommend one that is please?
Cheers!

I'm very new but I've just been uploading photos to the site using the inbuilt file attach function.

Good to see you back Mangamax!

We try to encourage members to upload directly to the AL forum now so that images stay on the same server as the board and don't get lost when changes to external services get made.

It has been my observation over the past few decades that phot hosting sites change or go out of business about every 5 years. We have had multiple sites disappear over the years so as Harry Stated we need to upload to the site directly when and where possible.
