    You could be linking to a site that doesn't allow photo sharing. As for the images of others, they could be doing the same, or the posts predate the switch over to the new forum software and the links did not transfer properly.

    I have been using imgur.com, I haven't had an issue in the past in other situations. Is that image host known to not work with this site?

    There have been some problems with imgur, but they all seem to be solvable. Do a search of ABBA using imgur and you'll find a bunch of threads, some recent.
