theres more where that came from... strong possibility of a working online store, with paypal integration and ability to take credit card payments... even stronger possibility of tapatalk integrati

Also, new editions include:                    

Also, we now have Tapatalk integration set up and working... You can thank me later.. Note: please use this wisely, as it bypasses our google ads, meaning we dont get any revenue. put simply

what does tapatalk that the new mobile view doesn't?

 

actually curious as I've only ever used it once

 

could you explain a bit more to someone who's never used it for example?

The main thing for me is push notifications, and having all my forums located in one place on my mobile, hence the 'not a big deal', as I still check it on my phone, just means I have to open the browser and enter the address, aka me being lazy :)

ahhhh yea I find the same thing, usually just go via the link in the instagram bio these days for quicker access

 

not sure about the notifications thing but there might be a fix for that (to cell or even FB if we dream big)

its a struggle to get even Avatars to under 100kb

 

help sign up forum sponsors for regular income to cover it & maybe? always room for improvement & i believe the admin team are more concerned about abuse of image uploads & potential liabilities for images, even if the system were set to 'moderated' where every image would need to be 'ok'd etc

I can understand that, as hosting an image is very different to just embedding one.

At the end of the day, responsibility is on the user to keep all posts/uploads legal and unoffensive.

Its all about cost of hosting. The issue is its a f around using a host like photobucket I understand that but its also a f around to resize images. Rather than compromise it would be best to host on the forum which is possible just not viable at this stage.

 

TLDR: Yes we would love too but not at this time.

photobucket turned to crap with bloated ad's & popups & is almost unusable to me now & works the worst out of all the img hosting option here on the new forums software

 

imgur or imageshack even you facebook and IG accounts work here fine if you paste links

Facebook and IG depend on your privacy settings though.
I'm going to start using imgur more since photobucket is so spammy now.

i use imgur, it couldn't get easier. just drag and drop. also on android device you can download a free app 'imgur android' that helps you upload and gives you urls for everything you uploaded. you just paste the url to the forum and your image is embedded. not sure the cost to benefit ratio would be favorable for trying to host images. these days we want high res stuff, limiting 100kb or whatever as suggested isn't really going to cut it.

Just as easy with the photbucket app. Only annoying thing i've found is the forum doesn't like embedding img links on the mobile site for certain devices. Need to use the direct link which os the opposite to other forums

I use flickr and have no complaints at all. Does not ruin the quality of photos as imgur does (I find this particularly important). 

Yes but you're hardly the average user :P

Flickr is much better for DSLR level photography.
