Having a forum host images blows your disk space real quick, and space is money. So I can't see it happening any time soon.
One of the things I am considering is moving to a purely overseas host as the one I'm looking at offers much more disk space than our current Australian host. The downside is the whole site would slow down. And then there's the download limit, which when Speed Week is on we blow every year.
Being able to host all our own images future proofs the whole thing.
Keep the shiney side up........

Hey that chrome extension works good , Thanks RGV

While i like having no spam on screen is it worth thinking about limited advertising to cover any money needs and getting the faster speeds and space on the current host ?
