We used to be able to upload here as well. We got hacked, and caused a lot of problems on Kurt's servers. Our site was down for months in 2009 . Some of our members never came back. Frankly back then it was just as complicated. you had to resize your pic, upload it to your album, then post it.
Kurt has obviously decided to take the risk over on Sailfar and has found a way to make it easy to do it there.
Btw, you can post your uploaded pictures there on this site by clicking on your picture there and pasting it here.
Kurt hosts this site for free. He hasn't decided to make that feature available here.
What I like is, we aren't deluged with ads, we control this site pretty democratically and it's free.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but that's just the way it is.
If you need assistance with the process, send me a pm & I'll gladly help you master what really is only one step more than over at Sailfar
