    It would be nice to see regular photos without going to another website...

    Why? When I click on the photo it takes me to another website with adds. If you uploaded regular photos I could zoom them and check them out without wasting very much time. When I see the page that your photos go to, I just close it and move on.

    I'm with Accutronica on this. By linking to external sites for your pictures, the images have no permanence on this site. If you do not want us to have continued access to the content, please don't bother posting it. Also, the external sites subject us to external ads and pop-ups that are obnoxious.

    OK, understand
    From my perspective, the photos display perfectly both clarity and size, and no need to click on them.

    Others that post tiny photos, that you need to click on to still see a postage size image, bother me.

    Sorry, I have posted thousands of photos hosted by PhotoBucket, and never heard this strange complaint before.

    Finally, I understand NAWCC will soon grab all photos, so they are also stored on their server?

    I read this in the rules and mostly I use the uploader but indeed if you add your own codes nobody usually complains about your images. The same things work for most of us.

    The photos are practically worthless in my opinion - you can't see the dials very well and you can't read anything.
    Most people don't say anything out of fear or something else. I'm not one of them.

    Well one does their best.
    I personally can read every card, maybe NAWCC on reading your "opinions" will re-post their own photos.
