I'm just bringing this link forward (a few posts above this), for the attention of those who have been using Photobucket - this is a relatively simple way to post pics in the forum. http://www.ournaturezone.com/index.php?topic=1679.msg175364#msg175364 (http://www.ournaturezone.com/index.php?topic=1679.msg175364#msg175364)  It is not necessary to sign up to Imgur to host and post pics, but it is always a good idea to have a copy of your posts (labelled) and saved somewhere for future reference whether or not you sign up.

All is not lost with Photobucket photos - although they will not show up in the forum, you can still access them and download and save them elsewhere.  If you have a bit of time, it is worth going through important posts and doing that, and then simply re-posting them using Imgur - or Flickr - or any other photo hosting site.  I have done so with a few photos and although cumbersome it can be done!
